My Approach

Sometimes, we all need objective emotional assistance from a trained perspective to find new insights that can move us towards positive changes in our lives. I have been in the social services arena for 25  years, working with widely diverse populations experiencing crisis and life challenges. My approach is strength-based and client focused. I will work collaboratively to help my clients identify goals, and then take steps toward improving their overall quality of  life. I believe that therapy can provide a safe, supportive, and guiding  environment which challenges us all to learn, heal, and change.

My Background

Following the completion of a Master’s degree in Family Studies at Auburn University, I served two years overseas as a Peace Corps Volunteer. I then returned to Georgia in 1998 where I worked with families experiencing healthcare and disabilities for the last twenty years. Most recently, I have completed the Master of Family Therapy degree at Mercer University School of Medicine.

I have completed extensive training in Gottman Method Couples therapy, Emotionally Focused Therapy, and the Cognitive Behavioral Therapy – TEAM approach. I am also a Certified Prepare and Enrich Facilitator.

I am licensed  as an Associate  Marriage and Family Therapist, working  under  the supervision of  two licensed clinicians  with  an office  in  the  Virginia  Highlands  area  of Metro  Atlanta. 


I am excited to be currently working full time with Couples Counseling ATL at the Poncy Highlands Building location. I currently offer both online and in-person appointments.
