My Approach to Helping

I believe it is the therapeutic relationship that heals, so when you come to work with me, I'll bring myself and my personality into the room. I'll engage with you, joke with you, and connect with you as another human being, not as an all knowing sage who nods for 45 minutes and then dispenses a homework assignment to help you heal. Ill accept you where you are and then help you get to where you want to be. A big part of my personality is that I am not a totally touchy-feely therapist. I balance feelings with facts and present a realistic approach to situations. I will be compassionate, but also truthful.

Therapy isn't about being told what you want to hear, it's about making progress. My job is to help you find what is healthy for you and those around you. Our next step is to find out how to achieve that balance which is when I ask you to trust in my expertise to pick the most effective tools for your specific issue (therapy is just like anything else-One Size DOESN'T fit all).

It would be my pleasure to get to know you, share in your story, and be a part of helping you achieve your goals and be the person you want to be.

More Info About My Practice

I am excited to be able to offer my services via webcam to all residents of Georgia. My favorite clients are couples, parents, and those struggling with chronic pain/illness, but I love working with individuals as well. I am a thoroughly trained Gottman couples therapist and chronic pain warrior.

On the Fence About Going to Therapy?

If you are questioning, you would probably benefit from some help. Sometimes, all you need is an outside perspective-there is no substitute for one-on-one help catered to your needs and unbiased. Therapy doesn't have to be a weekly commitment, come as you need. The longer you wait the more severe the problem gets, the harder it gets, and the longer it takes to change so don't wait to be the change you want.

Had a Negative Therapy Experience?

Whether therapy is forced upon you or you just ended up with someone who wasn't helpful, don't let the past get in the way of creating your future. If this is true for you, talk to me about the things you didn't like in the past so we can make sure to avoid them.
