About Me

I am a Professional Counselor licensed in Alabama and Georgia, with over 10 years of experience working as a mental health, substance abuse and behavioral counselor. I have worked with clients with a wide range of concerns including depression, anxiety, relationship issues, parenting problems, Bipolar, Schizophrenia, substance abuse, emotional disturbances, OCD and ADHD. I also helped many people who have experienced physical trauma or emotional abuse.

My counseling style is eclectic. I do not believe in a one size fits all treatment approach. I believe in treating all clients/potential clients with the dignity and respect that we all deserve. My approach combines cognitive-behavioral, dialectical behavioral, solution-focused and person centered counseling. I will tailor our dialog and treatment plan to meet your unique and specific needs.

I commend you for even considering counseling services. This is a major step to making the changes you want to see in your life. I can't promise you it will be easy, but it will definitely be worth it.

I look forward to working with you!

She is changing my outlook on life and encouraging me, one session at a time . I’m glad I invested in therapy, because of her
