"I am a Licensed Master Social Worker with a Masters of Social Work degree from Kennesaw State University and a Bachelors degree in Community Engagement and Education from the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee. I also studied abroad in Belgium to expand my worldview of social issues.
In 2019, I relocated from Wisconsin to Georgia to attend graduate school. I fell in love with the people (and climate), and have built permanent roots in the Atlanta area with my dog, Molly.
My client populations are adolescents and children, and my focus is on helping children and teens navigate their life paths. I am trained in human development, family systems, stress management, anxiety, depression, school performance, and parent-child issues.
My therapeutic approach is eclectic, integrative, and client-centered. I meet and accept clients where they are and, together, we figure out how to move forward in a way that will be the most effective for each individual client.
I provide clients with a safe and nurturing environment within which we can explore their unique struggles and triumphs. I advocate for clients by helping them identify their strengths and, when needed, providing empathetic confrontation. I support clients by helping them develop the psychological resources needed to tackle life's challenges.
Finally, I believe that we are not defined by our past experience or current situation. We all possess an inner strength that can help us create desired outcomes. I look forward to helping you discover your inner resiliency, and to joining you on your journey to healing and self-empowerment.
