About Me

I have a master’s degree in counseling from Alabama State University and 15 years of counseling experience. To bolster my counseling skills, I got licensed as a Professional Counselor in Georgia and certified in Anger Management Treatment, Clinical Trauma, Professional Counselor Supervision, School Counseling (Georgia, K-12), and Telemental Health. Continuing education is a must so that I stay well-informed and practice counseling professionally, proficiently, and ethically.

My life and professional experiences allowed me to build relationships with people from various backgrounds. I served over four years in the U.S. Army, honorably discharged, and then started working as a counselor for the Department of Juvenile Justice in Georgia. After six and a half years with the Department of Juvenile Justice, I have worked as a school counselor and started a counseling practice.

I was born to be a counselor. I love listening and helping others to use their unique strength(s) or gift(s) to face life challenges and live productive lives. Active listening, unconditional positive regard, empathy, and genuineness are essentials in my work with clients. My preferred therapeutic approach is person/client-centered therapy. My goals are to place myself into the individuals’ world, be nonjudgmental, ethical, build rapport and create positive therapeutic relationships. I want my clients to feel comfortable, accepted, open, and free to talk about any experience without reservation. I believe in self-disclosure to humanize the counseling experiences and share common life events for client growth. We are in this together.
