I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker (LCSW) in the state of Georgia with over 6 years of experience working with people ages 8-65 challenged by depression, anxiety, trauma, abuse, substance abuse/ addiction, and life changing situations. My approach is solution focused, client centered, and strengths based drawing heavily from Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, and Psychodynamic Therapy.
My counseling style is warm and interactive. I approach therapy through a client-centered approach. I believe in meeting the client where they are and using reflective questions to guide sessions and change. I believe in treating anyone with respect, sensitivity, and compassion. I will tailor our dialog and treatment plan to meet your unique and specific needs.
It takes courage to seek for a more fulfilling and happier life and to take the first steps towards a change. If you are ready to take that step I am here to support and empower you.
I look forward to working with you!

She’s a great person who cares and listens and provides good quick solutions
Written on Oct 17, 2022 after therapy with Kale for 2 weeks on issues concerning stress, anxiety, relationship issues, family conflicts, trauma and abuse, and anger management
Kale is a wonderful counselor. She truly listens and gives guidance that is specific to my needs and concerns. I have made tremendous progress in just a few sessions. She is very intelligent and understanding and those qualities combined have made for an excellent therapist. After switching from another counselor who didn’t meet me needs, I now have a great appreciation for having my weekly sessions.
