About Me

I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker (LCSW) in Georgia. I graduated with my Master's degree in Social Work from the University of Georgia in 2014. During my career I have enjoyed working with children, adolescents, adults, families and groups. I have worked as a Substance Abuse Counselor in a Medication Assisted Treatment (MAT) program, a Child & Adolescent Group Therapist for a private practice, a Mental Health Counselor for the Georgia Department of Corrections, a Mobile Crisis Behavioral Health First Responder for the Georgia Crisis Access Line, a Behavioral Health Clinician in an Intellectual/Developmental Disability Crisis Home, and as a Social Work Graduate Assistant for the Department of Juvenile Justice,. I have a great deal of experience with the following: mood disorders (particularly Bipolar Disorder and Major Depressive Disorder), anxiety, anger management, addiction, crisis stabilization, grief/bereavement, acute stress, et-al. I operate from an eclectic Cognitive Behavioral theoretical perspective employing core concepts of humanism and social work principles. I also incorporate elements of strengths based, solution focused, motivational interviewing and Dialectical Behavioral Therapy. I also enjoy using meditation/relaxation exercises including guided imagery, body scan meditation, mindfulness, and progressive muscle relaxation.
