I am a Licensed Professional Counselor with over 40 years of clinical experience. My undergraduate degree is in Psychology from Miami (Ohio) University and my graduate degree is in Psychological Counseling from Georgia State University. I achieved licensure as a Licensed Professional Counselor in Georgia in 1987.
My approach is eclectic, combining Mindfulness Based Cognitive Therapy, Hypnosis, Emotional Freedom Technique, Radical Forgiveness, and elements of Traditional Chinese Medicine, including Qi Gong, Tai Chi, Meditative Practices, and Yoga. My specializations areas are dealing with grief and trauma, addictions, depression and anxiety, complex medical issues with psychological overlay, and working with first responders.
I am a Certified Grief Recovery Specialist, a Certified Clinical Trauma Specialist, an Employee Assistance Clinical Specialist, and a Certified Radical Forgiveness Therapy Practitioner. I am certified in hypnosis by the American Society of Clinical Hypnosis.
I bring my personal experience of addiction, trauma, and grief to my work with clients. My experience infuses my work with empathy, compassion, acceptance, and a heartfelt commitment to receiving all clients without judgement of their circumstances.
I have a professional partnership with Alison Brooks, N.D., a Traditional Naturopathic Doctor who is also extensively trained in Integrative Energy Medicine, the Psych-K modality, Radical Forgiveness Life Coaching, and Shamanic Medicine under the Pachakuti Mesa Tradition of Northern Peru.
Alison and I combine our services to provide an effective and efficient approach to support our clients in making permanent change.
In response to the challenges of COVID-19, we offer remote services for our clients who are not able to come to our office.
