All of us benefit from having a safe place
 to explore our lives without judgement. 
The relationship between me and my client is the cornerstone of the therapeutic process. 
listen carefully to really hear the meaning in your stories so that together we can find the most effective paths for your personal goals.  
My intent is to provide a warm, genuine, collaborative approach that clients find comfortable.
 Using integrative methods, I help individuals and families work through challenges in an accepting and unbiased environment.

I am trained in mindfulness, hypnotherapy, art therapy, body focused therapy, play therapy, family therapy, filial therapy and parent coaching.

Together, we can address personal growth or specific concerns, whether it be for yourself as an individual, for a child or for the entire family system.

I earned a Masters of Science degree and an Education Specialist degree in Professional Counseling from Georgia State University. I am a Licensed Professional Counselor in Georgia (LPC 006771)

Life presents us with many challenges and opportunities for growth. You may have recently lost a loved one, experienced a change in your family or career, or simply feel alone. I can assist you on this journey and help you heal, grow and flourish. I believe that you are the expert on you, and I am here to provide a safe space to be heard, to be supported, and to help you identify your unique gifts and strengths. Together we can collaborate to find balance in your life and restore a sense of well-being for you and your family.

I enjoy helping adults and adolescents find freedom within their bodies and life through an integrative use of mindfulness and expressive arts within a nurturing environment. At times, we might struggle with obsessive or punitive thoughts or behaviors, anxiety, depression, or other challenges – ultimately, feelings of helplessness or confusion. I believe there is a way to bite into the richness of life, to healthily digest the ebb and flow of life’s cycles, and to live in your body with satisfaction and energy. Therapy may be the safe, soft place to land, lean and love

I hope to work together to understand your story, discover your deeper hungers, and transform that energy into self-love, creativity and freedom. I find value in nurturing oneself like a mother might hold and feed her baby. In the therapeutic relationship, we practice returning to that deep sense of safety, being, and sustenance through storytelling with curiosity, care and compassion. Sometimes we talk, sometimes we write or color, sometimes we play with yoga shapes and breath work, and sometimes we do all three. You set the pace, and we walk together along your journey to live fuller.

As a trained psychotherapist (M.S. in Clinical Mental Health Counseling from Georgia State University, practicum/internship at the Atlanta Center for Eating Disorders), I’ve treated a variety of disordered eating, addictions, anxiety, depression and maternal mental health issues. In therapy, I draw upon a blend of DBT, ACT, CBT, somatic psychology, and psychodynamic approaches from an attachment-based framework. As a movement educator and registered yoga teacher, I’ve worked with eating disorders and addictions for more than 10 years. During this time, I have repeatedly witnessed the value of integrating the body into the healing journey by weaving attachment-based theoretical interventions through ancient yoga practices, intuitive and developmental movement methods, and trauma-informed interventions.

I use an integrative approach that combines cognitive behavioral and insight oriented therapy. While I have specialties in grief and postpartum mental health, I help those experiencing a wide range of issues including anxiety, depression, and couples counseling. Let's work together to help remove whatever is blocking your path.

Therapy can be a wonderful experience - one that sets aside time just for you. My therapy approach is customized for the individual or couple. 

I have a B.A. in Anthropology and Theatre from Vanderbilt University, an MFA in Directing from Brooklyn College and an MA in Clinical Psychology from Pepperdine University.

My goal is to provide a safe and warm relationship within which you can learn about and express your core self. I am trained in both traditional and somatically-oriented methods of counseling, and can tailor each to your specific needs. I offer sliding scale fees and am available on weekends.

I hold a B.A. in Cognitive Science from the University of Georgia, and an M.A. in Somatic Counseling Psychology with a concentration in Dance Therapy from Naropa University. I have experience working with children at a flagship site of the Child Trauma Academy, which utilizes the Neurosequential Model of Therapeutics to approach the effects of trauma in children.

I specialize in helping adults, children, and adolescents strengthen mental and emotional health through reconnecting with the deep wisdom of their bodies. Too often, past trauma and accumulated stress distance us from the reliable stream of information our bodies offer regarding emotions, needs, and well-being. This can lead to feeling removed from our core selves, and can coincide with anxiety, depression, fatigue, and relationship issues, as well as behavioral issues in children. In mental health counseling, through simple, concrete, and accessible techniques, the body can be invited in as a resource for healing. Together, we can work to shift old patterns and to access more fully your integrity, vitality, and resilience.
