As a child and adolescent therapist, I acknowledge the challenges we as parents often experience. By working with children and their parents as a family system, there is an increase in the overall efficacy of treatment. Often, many of our struggles as a family stem from our ability to fully understand each other’s experiences and viewpoints. Learning to communicate more effectively, regulate emotions, and be more mindful in our everyday lives can drastically improve our personal and familial experiences.
I am an Associate Licensed Professional Counselor (APC005927 – Georgia) and earned my M.S. in Mental Health Counseling at Capella University. I received my bachelor’s degree from the College of Charleston. Much of my training and former positions were in the private practice fields, where I received specialized training and experience working with children and adolescents who have anxiety and depression, learning difficulties, and behaviors issues. I also have experience and training in the areas of ADD/ADHD, dyslexia, learning disabilities, PANS/PANDAS, and autism. I have advanced training in Dialectical Behavior Therapy and provide both individual and group DBT sessions for children and adolescents.
I also have advanced training in Perinatal Mood Disorders, working with expecting mothers, new mothers and their partners. I believe in working with the family system to increase the overall efficacy of treatment. These experiences and others have reaffirmed my commitment to fostering a therapeutic relationship characterized by safety and trust.
