I received my Master of Arts degree in Professional Counseling from Argosy University in 2004. I am currently a Licensed Professional Counselor (LPC005183) in the State of Georgia. However, I have been working in the helping profession for the past 15-years in roles of Homestead Therapy, Case Management, and Substance Abuse Education/Assessment. I have also served as an Instructor with Prime for Life for 8-years, working with clientele, who have been charged with Driving Under the Influence.
Counseling can be an effective way to alleviate distress, to discover better ways to solve problems, to learn new ways of relating to others or to change long-term behavior problems. However, counseling may also involve the risk of remembering unpleasant events and may arouse other emotions which may affect how you relate to others. I recognize that personal change is often a difficult process. I strive to provide a supportive, respectful and collaborative therapeutic environment where you can fully explore your concerns, challenges, and values. The counseling relationship allows you to seek perspective through a mutual relationship that is accepting, empathetic, and authentic. My therapeutic orientation involves Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy, specifically Rational Emotive Behavior Therapy (REBT), which is committed to promoting emotional well-being through short-term therapy with long-term results. I also utilize a variety of techniques in counseling including Reality Therapy, which focuses on problem-solving, rebuilding connections, and goal-setting.
The limits to confidentiality where your clinician is required by law to reveal information without your consent may involve the following: 1) If a court of law subpoenas/court order for your records, 2) If you are judged to be of imminent danger to yourself or to another person or the public due to serious and foreseeable harm, 3) If there is reason to suspect abuse or neglect of a child or person of a protected class, and/or 4) if there is a valid medical emergency.
In the event that you feel you are a danger, to yourself or to someone else, please call 911, or the Georgia Crisis and Access Line (a 24-hour hotline) at 1-800-715-4225, or, have someone take you to the nearest hospital emergency room.
