My hope is to offer you a space to freely unload the burdens that are heavy on your shoulders. You've no doubt tried to handle things on your own up to this point. Maybe the support of friends and family is either not enough or not possible. I am here to listen and be present in your time of adversity. Though I listen, I don't just stare at you for the whole session with a smile and a nod. I offer observations and feedback. I do not give advice or tell you what I would do. Instead, I help you look for the best solution for YOU. I may not always take your side as friends and family often do in an attempt to avoid disappointing you. Rather, I am here to identify what is healthy vs. unhealthy, functional vs. dysfunctional. I stand alongside you, not in front of you as a teacher; I do not tell you what to do. My hope is that, through the process of unloading your burdens and exploring all of their implications, you begin to make your own connections about how to move forward with your life. Change begins with you.

More Info About My Practice
At this time I offer online counseling through a secured, HIPAA compliant, video platform that is specifically designed for therapy. Online counseling is very useful for college students, people who have busy schedules, and people who have issues with anxiety that make it difficult to walk into a busy waiting room. I am only licensed in the state of Georgia, so you must be present in Georgia in order for us to do online therapy .
How Psychotherapy Can Help
Therapy can be a way for you to have someone truly listen to you without fear of judgement or criticism. Family and friends can be great listeners, however, there can oftentimes be a real fear that what we say to them may be used against us later or that they will judge and criticize us for our choices. Psychotherapy offers confidentiality. I will not see you at work, social events, school, or any other place in public. I'm legally bound to keep your information to myself (unless you are a danger to yourself or others). Also, there is really nothing that will shock me. I am greatly aware of many situations that might cause people shame, embarrassment, or guilt. These are the very things that keep us from seeking help. These are the boundaries of therapy that are designed to allow you to face and work on your problems rather that avoid or run from them.
The Duration and Frequency of Therapy
Typically, therapy begins at once every week to two weeks. When you start therapy you are going to want to get comfortable as well is dive in to the main reason(s) you are in therapy. As you make progress and make connections the purpose is to review your goals so that you may either drop goals that you have met or add new goals that have arisen. The last phase of therapy is when you are at a place to begin tapering off so that eventually you do not need to come anymore. I am not in the business of keeping people feeling like they cannot live their lives without therapy. Actually, its the opposite! I want you to have the necessary tools to take with you so that you don't need therapy anymore. Having said that, people come to counseling for various reasons. Some things are resolved in the first session or two. Others may take weeks and months. Still other people may be in therapy for years. None of these options is abnormal and therapy is always a choice.
