Is Therapy for YOU??
Is that little girl or little boy inside of you screaming to be heard? Do you find yourself constantly re-living your past without ever knowing how to resolve the pain? As we embark on new experiences in our lives, it is important to confront our past in effort to dive more smoothly into our futures. All too often, we abandon our past and never fully process through the pain. I am here to help you to address your past in effort to reframe your future! No issue is too big or too small! Let's work together to truly begin to SMILE from within!!!
As a therapist, I am here to create a safe space for you to begin to heal internally. I want to work with you on finally having those hard conversations with yourself and others, without the fear of being judged. So if you are ready to gain emotional balance and freedom, contact me today...

Currently, I am not listed as a mental health provider on insurance panels. However, my services are covered under most insurance plans. Receipts can be provided to you, which may be used to request reimbursement from your insurance company, utilizing your out-of-network benefits.
Appointments are typically scheduled on a weekly basis and are approximately 60 minutes long. Services will be provided in office unless otherwise discussed. More frequent sessions or an intensive outpatient schedule are available if determined appropriate. If you must cancel or reschedule your appointment, I ask that you call me at least 24 hours in advance. This will free your appointment time for another client. Late cancellation (less than 24 hours before) and/or no-show appointments are billed to the client for the full amount. In the case of illness or other emergencies, please notify me as soon as possible on the day of the appointment to prevent charges. In that event, we can schedule another session as needed. Please leave a message if you get voice mail.
You may encounter a personal emergency which will require prompt attention. In this event, please contact me regarding the nature and urgency of the circumstances. I will make every attempt to schedule you as soon as possible or to offer other options. Because clients may be scheduled back-to-back, it is not always possible to return a call immediately. However, I will make every effort to respond to your emergency in a timely manner. I recommend that you call Georgia Crisis & Access line (1-800-715-4225), which is staffed 24 hours per day every day of the week with counselors. If you are experiencing a life threatening emergency, please call 911 or go to your local emergency hospital.
