Hi! I am a professional counselor licensed in Georgia with over 12 years of experience working as a counselor in various settings and different populations. I have worked with clients with a wide range of concerns including depression, anxiety, relationship issues, parenting problems, and career challenges. I also helped many people who have experienced physical trauma or emotional abuse.
My therapy style is open, compassionate and interactive. I believe in treating everyone with respect, sensitivity, and compassion, and I don't believe in stigmatizing labels. My approach combines cognitive-behavioral, solution focused, and client centered treatment modalities to best meet you needs. I will tailor our dialog and treatment plan to meet your unique and specific needs.
It takes courage to seek a more fulfilling and happier life and to take the first steps towards change. If you are ready to take that step, I am here to support and empower you.
I look forward to working with you!

Stephen you are super awesome at being a therapist. You are great at listening and putting things into perspective. Thank you for not always agreeing with what I was saying but instead helping me understand where I needed to get to.
