About Me

Hello!
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 is wonderful! She has been such an amazing help throughout everything by listening, sharing resources, and talking though everything.

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.

Karyl has been my counselor for just under a year, and I feel like my mental and emotional health has improved over that time. I had tried counseling before, but I never really felt entirely comfortable, but Karyl did a great job of making me feel more comfortable, and I feel like I was able to express myself fully with her. I would definitely recommend her to a friend.
