About My Clients
My counseling office is a judgment-free zone and everyone and their parts are welcome regardless of race, sexual orientation, ethnicity, gender identity, immigration status, and political ideology. The only time I may connect you with someone else is if you are experiencing an eating disorder (unfortunately I am not trained to help with this coping mechanism), live outside of the state of Georgia, or you may need more support than I alone can provide.
My Background and Approach
I am a Licensed Professional Counselor in the state of Georgia working with adolescents and adults since 2014. At this time, I have an Evergreen certificate in DIalectic Behavioral therapy and I am currently working to complete certification in Attention Deficit Disorder, Grief counseling, Holistic Practices, Telemental Health, Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing, Internal Family Systems, and Brainspotting. I like to help people find healing from past traumas and core wounds experienced in childhood along with any coping mechanisms that you may want to change to help you cope with traumas from the past. I like to work collaboratively in the counseling setting where we decide together how I can best support you in your healing journey. I have training in protocols and structured treatments if you prefer structure and I can also meet you where you are if you prefer a more flexible approach. In my work as a counselor, it is very important to me to respect you and your autonomy
My Personal Beliefs and Interests
I believe that the counseling relationship is very important and equal. It is important to me that during our time together you feel held, affirmed and comfortable. I try to the best of my ability to hold an antiracist, decolonized, and lgbtqia2+ affirming approach at all times. I include spirituality and I do not offer Christian counseling. I believe that black lives matter, love is love, and no human being is illegal. I love animals and enjoy seeing pets during teletherapy sessions and believe in the healing and grounding powers of nature. I also love scary movies, working out and snuggling with my dogs.
