Thank you for taking the initiative to find out more about my therapy practice. I think it’s important to do some research to find a therapist that you feel will be a good fit for you and what you’re wanting to address. I welcome any questions that would help you in this pursuit.
Most of my clients come to therapy because they are feeling some sort of personal or relational pain that they can’t figure out how to overcome on their own. While they can feel a sense of failure because of this, I believe it’s courageous to reach out for help. My goal is to make sure I understand what your struggle is and determine a plan for how to address it quickly and with long-term impact.
Since finishing graduate school in 1998, I have worked in both hospital and outpatient settings as a therapist and administrator. My work as a family therapist and group facilitator at Ridgeview Insitute and as an outpatient therapist at several practices around the Atlanta area has helped me to understand and empathize with my clients struggles. When I had the opportunity to join ACC in 2005, enabling me to utilize my clinical experience from a faith-sensitive perspective, I jumped at the chance. I am blessed to be full-time at ACC as the Executive Director and staff psychotherapist.
While difficult circumstances in life are often unavoidable, the suffering that we often endure as a result of these can last longer than it need to due to our inability to know how to best respond. This is where I believe therapy can be impactful – to help you explore how to care for yourself in your immediate circumstances while addressing patterns of thought and belief that can lead to a healthier, more joyful future. I look forward to starting that journey with you.
