Ready to get started?

My psychotherapy practice in Midtown Atlanta provides counseling, coaching and psychotherapy services to men and women experiencing anxiety, depression, relationship problems, and other life concerns.

Looking for help in creating and maintaining a happy, satisfying life?  We’ll work together, side-by-side.

As a professional counselor licensed by the State of Georgia, I provide both individual therapy and couples counseling to a all sorts of people; I specialize in the concerns of LGBT individuals and couples.

  • My approach is nonjudgmental and compassionate.  While many of my clients are part of the LGBT community, others are non-gay individuals who are looking for a therapist with an understanding of non-traditional sexual and relational concerns.
  • While I strive to be supportive and caring, I believe good therapy goes beyond just listening to help coach the client into greater self-understanding to produce 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.  You can find out more about my professional services here.
  • I’ve been in private practice in Midtown Atlanta for more than 20 years.  I have a Master of Science degree in clinical psychology from Purdue University.  I am a member of the American Counseling Association.
