|I am a seasoned therapist with over 40 years of clinical experience, plus my own experience in recovery from addictions and traumas. My work is grounded in Holistic Psychology, Motivational Interviewing, Gestalt Therapy, and EMDR certified trauma work. I also incorporate mindfulness training, positive psychology, and cognitive-behavioral techniques.
My therapy approach is warm, compassionate, and collaborative. In an open and caring environment, I encourage an individual’s ability to change self-defeating patterns of thoughts and behaviors, increase self-esteem, recognize strengths, and develop healthy relationships. I feel privileged to help facilitate growth and change in each of my clients as they work toward healthier, happier, and more fulfilling lives.
I hold an Education Specialist Degree in Guidance and Counseling and a Master of Arts Degree in Humanistic Psychology from the University of West Georgia. I have extensive experience and training in substance abuse treatment, trauma work, and grief counseling.
