I have advanced certifications in Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT)™ and Eye Movement Desensitization Reprocessing (EMDR)™. My clients are men and women from late adolescence through adulthood, and I offer therapy to individuals, families, and groups. My specialties include helping clients through trauma, bipolar disorder, borderline personality disorder, depression, anxiety, and navigating life transitions.
I bring a holistic viewpoint to therapy, addressing the physical, spiritual, emotional, and mental aspects of my clients’s lives. I utilize a strengths-based paradigm, wherein I help my client identify their already-present abilities. From there, we discover and create even more strengths and resilience. I am person-centered, allowing the client to help lead and navigate the course of their sessions. I utilize DBT techniques to coach clients towards new skills and behavior patterns, and by using EMDR I can help individuals overcome past traumas or negative self-beliefs.
I am Georgia-raised and educated. I grew up Snellville, and graduated from the University of Georgia in 2011 with a B.S. in Psychology. In 2016 I received a Masters in Marriage and Family Therapy from Richmont Graduate University. My graduate internship was in DBT, and after graduation I worked for a local private practice for four years.
I am a spirited and compassionate clinician. I am able to sit with my clients through the difficult moments, and celebrate their victories. I have worked with a wide variety of populations: individuals with special needs, people with chronic pain, missionaries, and members of the international community. I have lived overseas and love to travel whenever I can. I am constantly looking for ways to challenge myself, be it physically, emotionally, or intellectually.
