13 years of experience

Things can feel out of control and you don’t know how to slow it down. Life can feel like a whirlwind sometimes. Maybe thoughts are irrational, but can’t stop them. Maybe you are starting to realize you might not make the best choices. Maybe you have driven yourself into a state of panic. Maybe your child has hit a breaking point and you don’t know how to help. We can figure this out together. I want to help you achieve that balance you are looking for so you can start living the life you want. I have worked with children and adults for the past 13 years in community mental health, in schools, and in private practice.

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

I can help retrain your mind to think differently and cope with distress so you can feel more balanced. My training has focused on relieving anxiety, depression and emotional sensitivity by using a blend of cognitive behavioral therapy. I start from a holistic perspective focused on lifestyle. For children, I also use play and art therapy techniques. I know it’s hard to make that first step, but you can do it. You or your family is ready for a change. Because the right fit is one of the best predictors of success in therapy, please reach out and we can talk through it together. My office is in Rabun County and I also provide counseling sessions online.

What treatment methods and tools do you utilize?

Cognitive Behavioral Therapy Dialectical Behavioral Therapy, Solution Focused Interventions Play Therapy Trauma Focused Cognitive Behavioral Therapy Acceptance and Commitment Therapy Mindfulness Psychoeducation and nutrition based consultation

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

I think of therapy as a mutual relationship. You know yourself better than anyone and I help unlock that code for you. As a parent, I understand what it is like to feel like you cannot help your child. I specialize in anxiety disorders as I grew up suffering from anxiety and spent the better part of my college years trying to figure out how to overcome it. I help children and adults do the same.
