Hello. I am an Atlanta native who has 24 years of experience working with clients in a number of different settings, from inpatient and outpatient hospitalization, to corporate consulting and private practice.
I attended Georgia Tech and received a BS in Applied Psychology, a Master of Social Work from the University of Georgia, and I am currently licensed as an LCSW.
My training as a psychotherapist is primarily in cognitive behavioral therapy, an empirically based mode of treatment. Issues I treat range from severe mental illness, depression, anxiety, and stress to issues with substance use and abuse, relapse and recovery.
The process is collaborative and requires us to work together to improve your symptoms which may include unwanted thought processes and behaviors.
Sessions with me are completely confidential and I typically see adults and adolescents, though others may be considered. Working in a practice with other colleagues provides the benefit of utilizing their unique specialties if appropriate and if the client is in agreement.
Embarking on a journey of greater self-realization and improvement can be difficult and uncomfortable at times while also enlightening, but ultimately, one has realized that some things have to change. We will get there together.
