About me

I am not perfect, nor do I have all the answers. But it is my belief that the answer is within everyone I service. As a counselor, I want you to consider me your tour guide. Along the journey, I will be present with you and point out important things. During the process, I will help equip you with the proper tools to improve your current state and overall quality of life. As a counselor, I am fair and consistent. I am authentic, sincere, and honest. I believe in humanism and being transparent. I want you to be able to trust me in the process and with your information. I promise to always be present during our time together. I will make suggestions, but ultimately the progress will govern the time we spend together. My approach is always person-centered but combines cognitive-behavioral, rational choice, humanistic, psychoeducation, and play techniques.

I am a Licensed Professional Counselor in Georgia. I have over 10 years of experience working as a counselor. I obtained my Masters of Education in Counseling with a concentration in Clinical Mental Health from Delta State University. I have worked with clients ranging from ages 4 to geriatric. In that time, I have worked with an array of individuals with a variety of concerns including depression, anxiety, adjustment difficulty, self-esteem, ADHD, Schizophrenia, and Bipolar to name a few. I have worked with former offenders, Veterans, those with a history of neglect, abuse, and trauma. My experience also includes crisis services, adjustment disorders, substance abuse, in-patient, telehealth, in-home, and community-based services.

You have taken the first step to improve your quality of life. When you are ready, I will be there to provide the encouragement and support needed along the path of establishing and achieving goals. Thank you and I look forward to working with you.

PJ is an amazing therapist! I came to her when I needed therapy again and was pregnant. I wanted to get my anxiety and intrusive thoughts under control while pregnant and just get back in the right head space. PJ helped me do just that over the course of about half a year and I am headed into motherhood more confident than ever and in a season of my life where my anxiety is at ease. I highly recommend PJ to anyone!

PJ has built a relationship of trust and earned my confidence to help me push past life long trauma, allowing me to address the effects they have had on my life. I can not recommend her more if you are wanting to do the work of therapy, and make like long changes.

PJ's talent is simply unmatched. She has a way of letting me lead where I need to go each week. I've done therapy multiple times before and it simply didn't work. I think because it was cookie cutter, this is week 1's topic, etc. PJ has an innate way of gently allowing you to open up parts of you that you didn't think were closed while offering prospective (and humor) that allows me to not only be seen but HEARD. The tricks and tools given are actionable, practical and real-life centered. I wouldn't hesitate for a second to recommend PJ to anyone looking for help.

Understanding and comes with experiences and stories that make the sessions personal and never generic. She moves sessions in a direction of progress and is excited for the next one each time.
