There's no need to struggle alone, yet we often do. Our suffering can appear in many different forms; from anxiety or depression, to relationship issues, substance use and more. It’s time to shed this idea that “we have to have it all together” and let ourselves be human for a moment. In this honest space, my clients tend to become more in touch with their authentic selves and establish beliefs, values, narratives and take steps towards a more fulfilling and meaningful life.
Grounded in a deeply humanistic and psychodynamic framework- I work with individuals as they detangle themselves from the scars of their past and the unhelpful narratives that result. Throughout my experience, I have worked with clients struggling with depression, anxiety, PTSD, personality disorders, existential concerns, and a myriad of other issues. I am particularly passionate and have sought additional training to work with death, dying, grief, and loss.
In this liberating journey together, my clients often find themselves more grounded in their true sense of self and free to engage in the search for meaning and purpose.
I was born and raised in Atlanta, Georgia and obtained my graduate degree from Lamar University in Beaumont, Texas - but have always felt at home in the mountains. I love the outdoors, and have spent my time thru-hiking the Appalachian Trail, section-hiking the Pacific Crest Trail and rock climbing across the country. Because of these experiences, I have gotten the opportunity to meet some of the most vibrant and eclectic people - and these experiences have drawn me to deeper and more meaningful personal connections.
I utilize a humanistically-based, psychodynamic approach in working with my clients. My clients are the experts of their lives and the authors of their own future. I pull tools from Existentialism, Acceptance and Commitment Therapy, Cognitive Behavior Therapy, Dialectic Behavior Therapy, Mindfulness, and Socratic Questioning while remaining rooted in a psychodynamic understanding of human behavior.
