Welcome! I’m glad that you are reading this, and I know that even getting to this step can be daunting, so congratulations! Do you ever feel like you know exactly what you need to do to feel better and yet you can’t act on it? Or maybe you are having a hard time even pinpointing why life doesn’t feel quite right. If so, you are not alone as most humans struggle in these ways as well. If this sounds like you, then let’s work together to identify the root problem. Then, we can figure out what’s getting in the way of making those choices, which ultimately can lead to feeling better. You were created for a purpose and deserve to be fully heard and understood. It would be an honor to work in collaboration with you towards your goals. Whether you are struggling with anxiety, depression, ADHD, life transitions, or relationship issues, things are never too far gone and there is hope.
My academic journey towards becoming a therapist began when I majored in Psychology at Presbyterian College, during which I was a Division 1 tennis player. I knew that I wanted to be a therapist early in my college career, so post-college I attended Richmont Graduate University where I completed a master’s degree in Professional Counseling and a certificate in Counseling and Spirituality. Most recently, I worked at Peachtree DBT in Atlanta and became well-versed in helping my clients develop tangible coping skills that they could use in relating to others, themselves, and their thoughts/emotions. My academic and clinical training has allowed me to develop a diverse set of therapeutic practices and passions within the counseling field to which I am very grateful.
Finding a therapist can be hard and it is important to feel comfortable. There is no such thing as a “dumb” question, so feel free to ask questions to make you feel comfortable in the process. I believe that pain in life is unavoidable, and suffering is optional. So if you feel like you are suffering or that your feet are just stuck in mud, then let’s work together towards solutions. I look forward to hearing from you soon.
