Welcome to my website and welcome to an important stage in healing; choosing your therapist.
I am a Licensed Professional Counselor in the East Cobb, Marietta. I have been in private practice for over 25 years. In addition to my private practice work, I counseled adults and children in community mental health agencies, non-for profit agencies, mentored other counselors as a clinical supervisor, and counseled children and parents in school settings. I have instructed adults and children in yoga, dance, art, dream work, parenting, and other life enriching studies.
I obtained my Bachelors Degree in Psychology from the University of South Florida and my Masters Degree in Mental Health Counseling from the University of Sarasota, graduating from both programs with honors.
I am a Nationally Certified Clinical Hypnotherapist and a Nationally Certified Counselor. I hold a certification as a Mental Health Integrative Medicine Provider, Hatha Yoga Instructor, Reiki Energy Healer and Family Herbalist. I have taught many workshops on parenting, creativity, creative writing, motivation, stress management, women's issues, dream interpretation, meditation/mindfulness, children's issues, and more.
My clients find my style unique and more effective from other therapy styles due to my ability to draw from a diverse skill set. With an insightful nature, and "evidence-based" interventions, I discern what a client's underlying pervasive issues are and guide them in the transformation of what feels stuck within them. They find they can achieve the change they want, along with developing enjoyment and self-fulfillment through their work in counseling.
By tending to the mind, body and spirit, my clients overcome a wide range of issues such as anxiety, depression, stressful/traumatic experiences, grief, and relationship difficulties.
With empathy and respect, I provide the stepping stones toward emotional well-being. You decide where this personal path to fulfillment will take you. In a comfortable, supportive atmosphere your therapy will be tailored to your individual needs to attain the personal growth you are striving for.
