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 so patient and kind. She really gives you space to speak whatever is on your mind. I started seeing Karyl during a really difficult time in my life. She gently checked in with me every week and reminded me that I'm not alone. If you're looking for someone with a gentle approach, I highly recommend Karyl!
