Reaching out for therapy can be intimidating, but my clients say I am not. I am here to offer you a grounded, secure presence for the work you have come to do. I believe therapy is a chance to pause in the rush of life to explore what we think and feel from a still and quiet place. It can be an empowering tool for feeding personal growth, challenging barriers, and reigniting dreams.

We will explore your strengths, what is working, and what is getting in your way. Together we seek to hear your inner wisdom speak more and more distinctly. I believe the therapeutic relationship is one of the most important parts of therapy, so it may be helpful to know I am often described as quiet, gentle, accepting, curious, and focused on strength. My intention is to be a safe space for you.

What started as excellent adaptations to childhood circumstances are often still operating in our lives as adults. Through that lens, our behaviors make sense! By sitting with our feelings and noticing what comes up in a warm and supportive environment, we reveal the implicit lessons learned in our early days, and life begins to shift. My main goal is to witness, empower, and support you in your work.

I am highly trained in Internal Family Systems, an accessible and effective approach, and I offer Brainspotting and EMDR to assist with healing trauma. My services are welcoming for all sexual orientations and identities, people of color, immigrants, people of all abilities, religious minorities, and people of all sizes. I have experience working with coming-of-age topics, anxiety and depression, shame, childhood trauma, intimacy, LGBTQ+ concerns, and change in general.

A lifelong introvert, I draw inspiration for my work from time alone, creating, walk-and-talks, personal therapy, reading, parenting, and failing and recovering to try again another day.

I am working with individual clients who are 18 and older. Reach out to me at or call me at 470-781-4589. I see clients in office (if vaccinated) and virtually. You can choose the best modality for you, even if that’s a mix of the two. My rates are $150 per hour, and I have a few sliding scale spots if needed. I am not on insurance panels at this time but can offer you a Superbill which you can submit to your insurance carrier for possible reimbursement. I look forward to hearing from you.

I am under clinical direction of Amy Robbins LPC and clinical supervision of Celia Webb LPC.
