My name is Karyl, and I am a Licensed Professional Counselor (LPC) in the state of Georgia. I recognize the courage it takes to reach out for help with personal matters. It would be my privilege to walk with you as you navigate through life's challenges.
I have experience working with adults struggling with various issues such as depression, anxiety, obsessions/compulsions, post-traumatic stress, substance abuse, mania, hoarding, and dissociation related to traumatic events. I have worked with people of various backgrounds, sexual orientations, genders, religions, and cultures. I care about what is difficult in your life and want to help with finding relief.
My counseling style is warm, attentive and non-judgmental. I work from a psychodynamic perspective which means I understand how past and current stressors can affect responses to stressful situations. I also utilize cognitive therapy which is a way to discover how thoughts affect feelings and behaviors. I have experience working with those struggling with past trauma and abuse and am trauma informed in my counseling.
I would love working with you and look forward to meeting you.

Karyl has been my therapist for a little over a year now. In that time, I have blossomed greatly. I was deeply depressed, about as far in as someone with a job outside the home can be. While it's not all sunshine and rainbows now, it definitely is a hell of a lot brighter than I would have gotten on my own without her help. She helped me see some of my tics that I wasn't even aware I had- and all without judgement. She truly is the best therapist I have had.
