The kaleidoscope of life provides colorful challenges that may impact our individual and social functioning.
Life stressors can drain a person's energy, cause confusion, and encourage doubt. However, there is hope in knowing that assistance through guidance and support is available to help you. I am here to help you, but I also understand that you are the author of your own story. I believe that therapy is about building trusting relationships. Moreover, I recognize that institutional and oppressive barriers within the social environment can affect the mental health and wellness of individuals, families, groups, and communities.
My goal is to help clients tell their stories through guidance and support that includes interventions to help resolve and cope with challenges impacting daily functioning. The work begins with exploring past and present relationships, family history, mental health history, past events, and systems that may affect beliefs, values, and social development. Under the humanistic school of thought, I believe that humans can become fully functioning with tools and support tailored to their needs. I help clients move towards self-actualization through gaining trust, achieving spontaneity, and focusing on the human condition. My theoretical approach is person-centered, analytic psychology, multicultural and social justice counseling, feminist and womanist theory, narrative theory, solution focused, existentialism, systems, and depth therapy.
I completed a master’s degree in clinical social work at Clark Atlanta University in 2005 and a Ph.D. in counseling and student personnel services at the University of Georgia in 2017. Since 2007, I have served as a college counselor and student affairs professional working with college students and young adults experiencing challenges with interpersonal relationships, addiction, anxiety, depression, identity development, bereavement, and daily stressors related to academic achievement. My previous experience has also included public and non-profit social service and mental health agencies with children and families.
