8 years of experience
Solution oriented

I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker (LCSW) in private practice with over 8 years of professional experience working across a variety of settings, including acute mental health, chemical dependency, dual diagnosis, PTSD and family therapy. I enjoy working with adults of all ages and have experience working in inpatient and outpatient settings as well as individual and group therapy. In addition to advanced training in addictions, I also have experience and training in maternal and perinatal counseling. Perinatal mental health covers the period of pregnancy up to a year after birth. This includes coping with post-partum depression/OCD/PTSD, unplanned pregnancy, infant loss, miscarriages, infertility issues and anxiety as it relates to preparing for a newborn. A native of Georgia, I have a BBA in Marketing from Georgia Southern University and a Masters in Social Work from Valdosta State University. I have lived in South Georgia my entire life. I am a spouse and mother of 3 children and 1 dog.

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

In our first session we will review your intake questionnaire together for elaboration and additional detail that may have been left out. We will explore your personal goals and discuss creating a treatment plan that's right for you. I big part of the first session is getting to know each other and making sure we are the right fit for one another.

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

With additional training and education in perinatal mental health, I can help you through one of the most difficult adjustments in life- pregnancy, preparing for and embracing life with a newborn. In addition, I can assist with traumatic births, miscarriages, infertility, unplanned pregnancies and infant loss. Whether you have a substance use disorder that is greatly impacting your life or you just want to decrease a habit due to health concerns, I can help you along the way to reducing dependence on substances including alcohol, prescription medication, smoking and other addictions.
