Are you spending a lot of time worrying? Come sit with me in my lakeside office and let's look at what's troubling you.

Maybe it's a painful relationship, a high level of anxiety, or feeling despondent about what's happening in your life.

Could it be that you're feeling lost and having trouble making decisions?

Regardless of your issue, you will feel at home in my comfortable, light-filled office. My approach is supportive, respectful and encouraging. I will use reflective listening and exploratory questions to help you gain awareness of what's causing unhappiness in your life and your relationships and what to do about it. I will collaborate with you to help you get relief from your burdens and feel good again.

Send me an email or call me. We can talk briefly about your objectives and, if it feels right to you, make an appointment for a session.

More Info About My Practice

I am a psychotherapist in private practice in Atlanta and the author of From Charm to Harm: The Guide to Spotting, Naming, and Stopping Emotional Abuse in Intimate Relationships.

I am a Licensed Professional Counselor, National Certified Counselor, and Distance Credentialed Counselor. For video tele-therapy sessions, see sidebar for link.

Fees: I accept debit and credit cards, PayPal, checks, and cash. I offer sliding scale fees based on ability to pay. If you want to use your health insurance, I will provide you with the documentation you need to file for insurance reimbursement (depends on your coverage). I also offer therapy groups which allow a lower-cost form of therapy.

Specific Issue(s) I'm Skilled at Helping With

Relationship issues: Anxiety, depression, or feelings of hopelessness are often caused by difficult relationships, whether it is with a life partner, family member, friend, or work colleague. Past relationships, such as with a neglectful or manipulative parent, can have a profound effect on current relationships. Let's look into what's causing you to be miserable in a relationship and what to do about it.

Anxiety & Depression: Sometimes it's difficult to pinpoint the reasons for getting stuck in unhappiness and distressing situations. Uncovering the hidden psychological forces that keep you in the same patterns can liberate you from your emotional burdens and help you feel joy again.

Life Transitions: Whether you're grieving a loss, breaking up with a long-term partner, or feeling like you've lost your way, therapy can help you find better ways to cope, heal, and move on.

Two Different Therapy Groups Offered: 1) For women of all ages who are in or have been in relationships with controlling and manipulative partners or other family members 2) For young women between the ages of 17 and 29 years old who want to live their best life. Best Life groups include psycho-education on relationships, life goals and fulfillment, personal growth, effective communication, and other life skills.
