Finding the Right Therapist
Choosing the right therapist is important. It's a relationship unlike any other. Each of our professionals utilize their own unique approach to therapy and bring their own therapeutic style in the process. Therapists are people, just like you. Learn more about our staff below:
I am a believer that therapy works best when clients are comfortable enough to leave their comfort zone. Working together to create a safe and caring environment will always be one of my goals, but so will challenging you to grow and achieve what you deserve. I will also urge you to take care of yourself in all aspects of life. And I’m right there with you! To take care of myself I indulge in lots of tacos, staying active and outdoors, and of course Netflix.
Simply put, I'm authentic. I'll meet you where you are, support you, and hold you accountable without judgment. A typical session with me involves creating a safe space for you to exist in all intersections of your identity.
I partner with the client to identify the underlying issues interfering with your present life and relationships. I work to create space for all parts of my clients (even the ones you don’t like!) and to develop compassion and care for those parts you desire to change. I challenge my clients to connect with their emotions, their body, and explore how their experiences have influenced where they are in their present lives. I am a North Carolina native that enjoys traveling, college football, and navigating the crazy and amazing world of motherhood.
I'm a member of the Georgia Army National Guard, and specialize in readjustment counseling for military members and their families. I enjoy employing creative (art/play) therapy into my sessions. I believe that everyone is entitled to the pursuit of happiness, and use the Science of Happiness to help my clients achieve their personal goals. I am a lover of Starbucks, Bob Dylan, and long walks on the beach. Oh, and Hail Southern!
Having experienced addiction in my past, I developed empathy and compassion to help addicts through their unique struggles, as well as assist them in finding their place in the world. I utilize abstinence-based treatments such as the 12 steps program. Lasting sobriety doesn’t just happen, it takes commitment, discipline and motivation. Let me be your guide and help secure your way.
I come ready to work in a partnership in an effort to turn the victim mentality to the victor mentality. I emphasize a holistic integration of the mind, body and spirit to facilitate complete healing. I believe that true peace comes in the ability to let go of what you can't control utilizing modalities such as DBT-based treatment, mindfulness, wellness and trauma-informed care.
