About your Psychotherapist
As a prospective or current client, I believe it is important for you to know about my professional background. I primarily work with tweens, teens, women, and couples. My work with clients is rooted in clinical theory and years of practice. I earned my Bachelors in Psychology from University of Maryland, and my Masters in Clinical Social Work from New York University. I continue to attend conferences and meet with colleagues to learn and discuss the latest research, and to refine the newest interventions. I will always be eager to learn the most effective techniques in order to enhance others' lives.
Since graduating from NYU, I moved to the Atlanta area to begin my career. In Atlanta, I have worked with clients through Cobb County Community Service Board, the inpatient unit of Peachford Behavioral Health Hospital, and Jewish Family & Career Services. I help clients work through a variety of issues, including, but not limited to: guilt/shame, infidelity, intimacy concerns, interpersonal concerns, complex addiction histories, poor self-esteem, eating disorders, anxiety, depression, and life transitions. Through Cobb County, I provided play therapy and family therapy at a Title I elementary school and designed and facilitated 9 counseling groups weekly for adults with co-occurring disorders.
I developed my own practice to provide an integrative and holistic healing approach to teens, women, couples, and families. I believe in everyone's need to feel safe and seen in the world. I deeply care about the connection with each of my clients. My clients are teens, families, women, and couples (LGBT welcome).
I have significant experience in helping teens and women find their unique voice, improve their self-esteem, and enhance their relationships. Drawing primarily from EFT and Gottman, I also help couples restore their connection. You can trust me to hold myself to the highest ethical and clinical standards.
I was featured as the primary eating disorders expert in GRRRL: Beauty is the Beast. This documentary is available to stream through Amazon. My upbeat and kind personality allows my clients to feel safe and comfortable. I believe no issue is insurmountable, no matter how complex.
