Are you experiencing feelings of anxiety or depression? Is life just not as fulfilling as you think it should be? Have you experienced major change that is bringing stress or pain into your life? Are you concerned about your substance use? If you can relate to any of these questions, or if you are struggling with any of the other various trials this chaotic world can bring, then I am here to help you.
The world we live in can be a challenging and stressful place. Without the right support from others, it can simply be too difficult to progress in life. I am passionate about providing individuals with that support, so that they may find their way to a happier and healthier life. My goal is to offer clients a safe and honest space in which we can explore their thoughts, behaviors, and emotions in a non-judgmental way. I believe that by working collaboratively, we can discover solutions to the difficulties you may be facing.
I’ve had my own experience working through issues such as depression, anxiety, trauma, and substance misuse. Working on these issues in therapy gave me the skills I needed to turn things around and live in a happy and healthy way again. My experience has taught me that honest exploration of your past can be key to understanding your present, and that is central to my counseling process.
I earned a Bachelor of Science in Psychology from the University of North Georgia. I’m currently working on a Master’s in Clinical Mental Health Counseling at the University of Georgia, anticipated to graduate in May of 2020.
What to Expect From Me:
My style is collaborative and relational. I believe that a trusting and non-judgmental relationship is essential for the counseling process to be effective. While I am still developing my theoretical orientation, I currently operate from an integrative approach that blends techniques from Person-Centered and Cognitive-Behavioral approaches.
I am available to meet for individual counseling sessions that typically last about one hour. If you would like to schedule an appointment or get more information, give us a call at our main office at 706-850-7041. I look forward to working with you!
