About My Clients

Online video and phone sessions only – You work hard, put on a smile, and everyone thinks you are happy. But you are tired of pretending. Inside, you never feel good enough. You feel that if you did open up, no one would understand you. You’ve tried to keep everything together, but there are times you have retreated to be alone, or other times when you have gotten angry and lost it – sometimes hurting other people either emotionally or physically.

My Background and Approach

You may also have fears that overwhelm you and affect your life. Many of these feelings may come from trauma that you don’t know how to resolve. You are tired and are ready to make a change. You want to increase your confidence and quiet your inner critic. You want to feel more carefree and excited about everything in your life. I can help you achieve this. I work with you to determine your goals for counseling. I incorporate CBT, mindfulness, meditation, journaling, and EFT along with Trauma Focused CBT and positive psychology. Face-to-face video online therapy is great for busy people or those who have difficulties leaving their homes. I have the ability to see clients online anywhere in Alabama, so I make it easy to fit counseling into your life. I offer a free 15 minute consultation call or video chat to help you determine if I am the right fit for you. Visit my website today!

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

I am a polymath which means I dive deep into subjects which capture my interest. I have multiple degrees including a Ph.D. in Geology. I teach geology part-time at two universities. I love exploring new ideas so I have explored a variety of spiritual beliefs and practices, a wide range of art, and hiked a lot of different landscapes. I am originally from Illinois and lived in Chicago for 11 years learning about many different cultures. I have a positive outlook and believe that if you aren't learning new things, you aren't growing. Everyone has great potential to grow and I love to help people on their journey of growth and self-acceptance. I feel my own growth was magnified when I dove deep into the Emotional Freedom Technique. I have been an Emotional Freedom Technique (EFT) Master practitioner since 2010 and am also a Trainer for the Guild of Energists, the largest international EFT organization. EFT has changed my life.

  • Christianity
  • Judaism
  • Interfaith
