Hello, I am a licensed clinical social worker in Georgia (LCSW) and I have been working in the counseling field since 2004. I have experience working with children, parents and families in many different settings. My work has included guiding families through issues related to neglect and abuse, foster care and adoption, blended families and communication issues. I have worked with parents who are struggling with stresses related to parenting children and teens. In addition, I love assisting women who are struggling with the pressures of motherhood to find peace and confidence in that role. Another one of my heartfelt passions involves supporting young adults navigating the intricate challenges of the adult world. In today's fast-paced environment, finding one's path can be an overwhelming journey. I derive immense fulfillment from aiding individuals in navigating this complexity, assisting them in managing stress, and collaboratively devising a personalized roadmap towards a fulfilling life. I mostly tend to draw from a client centered modality when in a therapeutic relationship with my clients. This means that I make consistent efforts to meet each client "where they are" and to allow a space where each client can feel heard and that their feelings are valued. I also pull from other modalities to guide my work, such as Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) and Solution-Focused Therapy. I enjoy and feel honored to be a part of someone’s personal journey towards growth and peace. I provide a non-judgment, criticism free environment where my clients can feel safe to share their feelings and develop a plan to move forward to a place of peace and comfort. I look forward to working with you!

Selfcare is not selfish. Give yourself permission to place the oxygen mask over your own face first, now breath. Inhale. Exhale. It takes a ton of commendable courage to reach out for a shoulder to lean on. It is perfectly ok to recognize when you are operating on empty. You cannot pour from an empty cup. It is perfectly ok to receive, especially when you are the one who is constantly sacrificing and giving. It is time for you to pour back into yourself. Human beings are not designed to be an island. Give yourself the gift of healing and recovery. I will meet you where you are and help you along your healing and recovery journey. I have been in the field of behavioral health since 2001. I specialize in treating mental health and chemical addictions simultaneously. I am a board approved Licensed Professional Counselor (LPC) in Georgia.

My name is Kyle, I go by my middle name. I am licensed in Georgia with 12 years of professional work experience. I have experience in helping clients with, but not limited to, stress and anxiety, coping with addictions, lgbtq+ related issues, & coping with grief and loss. I believe entering therapy is starting an alliance based on trust by the communication of feelings, thoughts, and behaviors. This communication goes both ways, from client to therapist, and therapist to client. The need for such an alliance typically results from some part(s) of life becoming unmanageable or unclear. It is my role as a counselor to help you navigate these concerns, set goals, and to foster more effective coping skills to manage stress. Guarantees in counseling are limited, however I can assure you that I will do everything I can with my training and experience to help you achieve your goals. I graduated from The University of Georgia with bachelor’s degrees in psychology and history in 2004. Then worked for The Marcus Institute, as a Primary Therapist for clients with autism spectrum disorders and other ongoing behavioral health concerns for two and a half years. I moved to New York City, New York in 2007. There I was employed with Partnership of Innovative Comprehensive Care, Inc. as a Case Manager Supervisor, assisting other case managers with caseloads of clients with developmental, intellectual, and mental health disorders. I returned home to South Georgia in 2011 and received a Master of Science in Clinical/Counseling Psychology from Valdosta State University. During this time, I worked as a Graduate Teaching Assistant along with interning at Behavioral Health Services of South Georgia. After graduation I worked at Crescent Pines/Anchor Hospital and The DeKalb Community Service Board as an Admission/Intake Counselor from 2012 to 2014. After this I started as an admission Counselor at Ascena Health (St. Jude’s Recovery Center, Inc.) in 2014. In 2015 I accepted a position as a therapist (clinician) providing one on one therapy and case management to individuals in both residential and outpatient treatment. In 2018, I received my Professional Counselor License. After this I continued as a therapist assisting clients with both substance use and mental health disorders in residential and outpatient care. In 2019 I accept a position as the Medication Assisted Treatment coordinator and residential manager supervisor. Within the same year I also started an outpatient program assisting in the reentry of federal offenders on probation. In 2023 I accepted the position of Director of clinical services, overseeing all clinical and residential programs within the agency. Later that year I started my own private practice, where I continue providing professional care and services to individuals with addictive, behavioral, and mental health disorders.

Find a therapist under any of these distinctions and know that the sessions they offer can provide a safe place to heal.

A mental health counselor working through their own in-person therapy practice in Woodstock or online may assist clients in improving healthy relationships, communication skills, working through life transitions, couples counseling, managing a mood disorder, improving coping skills, self help tips, offer life coaching, family therapy, or change in negative thinking patterns.

Some other commonly asked questions on therapy with a licensed counselor and BetterHelp serving the Woodstock area can be found below:

How does the cost of in-person counseling with a therapist compare to the cost of BetterHelp with a licensed Woodstock therapist?

The average price of an in-person therapy session in the US is $100 to $200 per hour. These prices may be higher in Woodstock due to a higher cost of living.

While many psychologists in Woodstock may not take health insurance, some in the state of Georgia may work on a sliding scale, meaning they'll factor in your income and charge what you can afford per session.

How do I know if online counseling is right for my family in Woodstock?

One of the potentially rewarding aspects of working with a Woodstock therapist is the validation and active listening they can provide. Your friends and loved ones may also be available to listen, but you may feel that they may lack the skills to provide objective guidance. Counselors are trained to respond to various concerns, symptoms, and mental health conditions.

Woodstock therapists in your city can support you toward a healthier emotional state, regardless of your mental health, life concerns, or healing needs. While supporting individuals in developing healthier habits, another good benefit of Woodstock therapy is having an understanding, safe space with a non-judgmental party who can support you through challenging experiences.

Many people have sensitive topics that they may feel ashamed to discuss with their friends or partner. A Woodstock therapist can help you confront these concerns and open up through unique methods of support. There are also many types of therapy, such as art therapy, where you may find you can express yourself through creativity instead of words with a psychotherapist.

With a lot of people in GA, therapists may be booked out with clients.

How should I prepare for my first therapy session with a Woodstock counselor?

Before seeing your Woodstock therapist, prep for your session by reading to understand the therapy process. You might write a list of questions you want to ask your psychotherapist, any emotional pain you may feel, and the ways in which you hope to improve. When you attend your session, let them know if you have any concerns about therapy or feel unsure about what to talk about. They may help guide you with open-ended therapeutic questions while offering mental health services. The first session will often serve as an intake to get to know you as a person and learn why you're attending therapy in Woodstock.

Should I find a therapist or psychologist for therapy if I feel fine? 

Some simply don't feel the need to see a psychologist. However, some people may avoid attending therapy due to stigma or preconceived notions of what therapy entails. Although psychologists often support people with mental health conditions, you do not need a diagnosis or condition to attend therapy. You can discuss grief, relationship concerns, stress, or life changes and ask for general feedback and advice from a therapist. A Woodstock licensed clinical social worker may help you gain power over your life and emotions while you navigate day-to-day experiences.

Gaining a new perspective on yourself through various therapies might allow you to improve your self-esteem, work through relationships, and gain a better sense of your mental health goals. The success you may find through therapy with a Woodstock counselor can be dependent on your process.

People may also attend therapy for specific motives, such as bullying, an autism diagnosis, a desire to learn mindfulness meditation, personality concerns, trouble with office workers, specific phobias, and many other principles that a counselor can help with.

Is mental health care and therapy with a therapist worth it?

Therapy with a licensed counselor is effective and has the power to change individuals' lives. Each client is at a different stage of their emotional healing journey in life, as each human can be unique in their personality, expression, skills, and goals. A psychologist can target various symptoms, experiences, and personalities to help you feel your best and put you on the path to healing. Unlike advice from a friend, family, or non-professional, a mental health therapist has an understanding of various disorders like ADHD and depression with many hours of experience in treating adults in their practice. For this reason, seeing an evidence based psychologist in Woodstock, Georgia can be worth it. Over 41 million adults in the US attend therapy services each year, showing it's a popular option and is proven to be effective.

Woodstock has many clinicians who practice person or client-centered individual therapy in-person and through online therapy to assist clients in their healing journey. If you opt into online therapy, you might also be able to meet with providers all over the United States and change therapists easily at any time. Many people struggling with anxiety and depression, substance abuse, body image issues, and more find therapists that are a good fit for them, feel supported, and gain further insight into their lives through internet-based therapy.

Do therapists judge you in therapy sessions during telehealth appointments?

The boundaries between you and a therapist are in place to help you and them regarding ethical concerns. Mental health professionals are held by ethical standards through the American Psychological Association (APA) and are not allowed to judge or harm their clients. If you are concerned about sharing details about yourself, feel free to withhold personal information. Their job in the therapeutic relationship is to create a safe place, help you gain a deeper understanding of your mental health, and support you. You might consider changing counselors if you don't feel safe or respected.
