Are you a millennial or Gen Z woman facing a challenging life transition? I want to empower your ability to find peace within the storm.
Licensed Clinical Social Worker in Dunwoody, GA
I especially enjoy supporting Millenials and Gen-Z women coping with issues specific to this population. Women nowadays face mounting social pressures due to roles that they are often expected to fulfill. As a woman myself, I have a unique understanding of the needs of this group and how to provide the specific type of support that is so needed.
Mindfulness is simple in theory, and can be difficult in practice. There are so many distractions in our day to day lives that take us out of the present moment. By learning about and practicing mindfulness, we can all find the time to stop and smell the roses in our daily experience.
I tend to engage my clients from a very eclectic approach. Depending on the need of the client, that helps determine exactly what our therapeutic process looks like. Radical genuineness is a big part of what helps me connect with a client and meet them where they are.
Through my work with clients, I have found Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) to be a highly effective way to challenge fixed beliefs, identify personal biases and then work to challenge whatever comes up as not being helpful to the individual.
Through my work as a therapist, I have encountered many people in the midst of hugely impactful life transitions - transitioning from high school to college, transitioning through leaving a toxic relationship to being fulfilled as a single person, transitioning from living a life that feels unbearable to a life filled with joys and subtle nuances. None of these life changes are easy, and it can make all the difference to have a caring person help you through.
My experience supporting individuals through their end of life journey largely shaped me as the therapist I am today. I fully realize that life is extremely short. A life well-lived can include themes of grief and loss, and be so beautiful and worth living at the same time.
During my time spent working as a hospice social worker, I witnessed the unique challenges that can occur for someone dealing with chronic pain or illness. These individuals need specialized support and ways of coping through uncertain times, often more so than ever before in their lives.
