About me

I am licensed LISCW in Alabama with 12 years of professional work experience, working with adolescence and college age students, as well as older adults and children. I have experience in helping clients with stress and anxiety, depression, LGBTQ-related issues, relationship issues, & motivation, self-esteem, and confidence. I also teach clients how to develop a unique social skill method to help manage uncomfortable social situations with friends, family, and partners. I am also trained in ERP therapy for the treatment of OCD, Hoarding, and BFRBs. I work with my clients to create an open and safe environment where thoughts and feelings can be shared. When you step into my therapy area it is considered a non-judgement, be yourself, zone, to allow you accomplish the goals you initially came to therapy for in an easier way. Taking the first step to sign up for therapy can take courage and I am proud of you for getting started!

Of the therapists I’ve had, Rex stands above them with his level of knowledge and insight. He knows how to affectively bring light and calm to any given situation I express to him and offers a variety of helpful ways to reframe my thought process and bring clarity. I have only worked with him for about a month and can’t wait to see the progress I continue to make going forward with him.
