As a mental health therapist on Saint Simons Island, I work to assist individuals understand and overcome mental, emotional, and behavioral health concerns. I am a Licensed Professional Counselor in the state of Georgia and a National Certified Counselor. I currently practice in the Coastal Georgia area.
