LPC
18 years of experience

Thanks for checking out my counseling profile! I'm a Licensed Professional Counsellor (LPC) based in Georgia. I received my Masters from Argosy University and have been practicing for 18 years. I offer a therapy format to best serve my clients that is specific to their needs. My past clients might describe me as "down to earth" and offering a safe space to share their feelings in a no-judgment manner. Every human has an emotional struggle sometime in their life. Mostly, I am a person of faith who believes that people can find hope in a hopeless world!

What can clients expect to take away from sessions with you?

Our first session will be a time to explain the nature of the person's emotional concerns and to begin to establish a rapport with them. I also explain the therapy process and answer any questions that the client may have about what to expect from the therapy process. I will also decide if I am the right therapist for the client's needs. I don't have a "magic wand" that automatically takes away their emotional concerns but it takes work on the side of the client to reach their emotional needs.

Explain to clients what areas you feel are your biggest strengths.

Mostly, I love to help others during their time of need. I am experienced in a wide variety of behavioral health needs. Grief and loss, anxiety and depression, family and couples treatment, and adoption and foster care are a sample of my experience in professional counseling.

Describe the client(s) you are best positioned to serve.

I love working with a wide variety of clients to help them with their emotional needs. Some of my clients may be dealing with a traumatic event in their life involving the sudden loss of a loved one, serious or life-threatening illness or accident, or a traumatic event in their past. As a parent of a child with a disability myself, I also serve individuals with intellectual disabilities such as Autism Spectrum disorder and ADHD, and parents of children with severe developmental disabilities. Many parents of DD/ID children have serious problems with care and services, and parents have little or no understanding of the system of care that is available to them.

My treatment methods

Cognitive Behavioral (CBT)

CBT is my go-to therapy format to begin working with a client to evaluate the thoughts and feelings of my clients. From there I can use another theory to specialize the treatment for the client. With PTSD cases, the best practice for post-trauma stress is Cognitive Processing Therapy and possibly Attachment Theory.
