I am a therapist in Atlanta, Georgia with offices in Alpharetta, Brookhaven, and online for Georgia residents. I love to help individuals and couples grow and explore ways to find their best selves.
A passion of mine is to help couples with effective communication and help them build fondness and admiration for one another. My perspective on religion and spirituality is open-minded, welcoming, and I am affirming of all relationships.
I also provide individual counseling to adults and teens (13 and up). I keep clients engaged through art, sand, and relaxation. We’ll use homework to make sure your new skills stick. I’m also a big fan of using therapy books and workbooks to dive deeper into your concerns.
Clients tend to like my down-to-earth and direct approach to therapy. I also love to use humor with my clients! I use a combination of interventions to meet clients where they are and assist them in meeting their goals.
