Greetings! I am a Licensed Professional Counselor in the state of Georgia. In 2013 I earned my Masters degree in Mental Health Counseling from Austin Peay State University. Prior to becoming a counselor, I was a nurse for six years, so I am very passionate about holistic health and healing - mental, physical, and spiritual. Over the past few years, I have gained counseling experience working in inpatient, outpatient, and college campus settings . I have extensive experience working with clients who are struggling with depression, anxiety, identity/self-esteem, and relationship issues. I thoroughly enjoy working with couples who are in distress. I am also certified through Prepare-Enrich to provide pre-marital counseling.
I am a Southern girl at heart, living in the Northwest, with my husband of seven years and our sweet one year old son. We love to hike, camp, and experience the outdoors. I love being a wife, mother, and counselor. During college, I experienced my own depression, related to some traumatic events from my childhood, so I sought counseling, and it changed my life. As a result, ever since then, I have wanted to use my knowledge and experiences to help others achieve joy, peace, and balance in their lives. I also simply love the process of counseling - of listening to someone's story, sitting with them through their hurt and pain, and helping them to identify and achieve their goals. I am passionate about helping people to become their best selves and to experience an abundant, full life.
My counseling style is friendly, warm, and interactive. My approach combines Cognitive Behavioral, Solutions-Focused, and Relational Therapy, but I will tailor my style to fit your specific needs and wishes. I enjoy being flexible and open to new issues as they develop.
I am eager to get to know you, and to help you achieve your best self and best life!
