Licensed Professional Counselor/Owner

LPC006460 Georgia


I strive for client satisfaction and believe that the relationship between myself and those I work with is the most important part of the work I do.  All of the work I do is based on mutual respect, openness, honesty, and a willingness to try to replace problematic behaviors and thoughts with more productive and functional thoughts and actions so that everyone achieves the happiness, satisfaction, and success in life that they desire.  I believe that everyone can achieve the success they desire but that sometimes we all need a little extra support.  Sometimes we can get this from family or friends but sometimes we might need or want this help and support from a professional which is why I am here.  I am a Registered Play Therapist-Supervisor and Clinical Professional Counselor Supervisor.  I am EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing) Trained for trauma and currently pursuing EMDR Certification.

Focus Areas:

  • Children/Teens with a specific focus on teen girls
  • Women’s Issues including anxiety, depression, life adjustments, emotional regulation, trauma,  and more
  • Parenting Support and Training
  • Trauma
