Looking for a therapist?

office headI am a professional counselor licensed by the State of Georgia for more than 25 years, I provide both individual therapy and couples counseling to all sorts of people. I have a Master of Science degree in clinical psychology from Purdue University.  I am a member of the American Counseling Association.

My approach is nonjudgmental and compassionate.  One of the great things about being in Atlanta is the opportunity to work with a very diverse community – busy professionals, people of varied economic, ethnic or racial backgrounds, LGBT men and women, people who have relationships or sexual interests that come in all varieties.  Our work together is determined by your goals, not a per-conceived or one-size-fits-all approach to emotional health.

Good therapy goes beyond just listening and support. I am engaged with my clients to help them gain greater self-understanding and make the changes that make life better.

I limit the number of clients I work with so I can provide each person with the best possible care and attention.  My intention is to keep us focused on your goals, which helps make therapy more effective.

I invite you to explore the articles I’ve  written on topics many of my clients have brought to therapy.  And whether you choose to work with me or not, you may want to look at my recommendations for getting the most from psychotherapy.

If you are ready to talk with me about working together, I’m happy to answer any questions you might have. Contact me at (404) 874-8536 or by email.
