About Me






I am a Licensed Marital and Family Therapist, am Certified in Psychodrama, Sociometry and Group Psychotherapy and am Certified in Nuturing Parenting ITP.  I would describe my work as problem focused, short term counseling with individual adults, couples, groups and families. I maintain a Private Practice in Jasper, Georgia.

With over 29 years experience as a therapist, and a graduate of University of Connecticut, I currently serve the communities of Ellijay, Blue Ridge, Dawsonville, Ball Ground, Canton, Fairmount, Talking Rock, Jasper and others as a private practitioner, and work with a broad spectrum of clients.  My areas of expertise are;

survivors of trauma
anxiety 
depression
self growth
adult children of alcoholics
recovery
life challenges and changes
new directions
relationship issues
parenting
stress management
mental health
pain management
Marital and Family Therapy

In
addition to being a prominent relationship therapist, I have presented at National conferences and to general audiences speaking on the topics of Trauma Resolution, Dealing with Anger, Nurturing Parenting - both Prenatal and Infant, Toddler and Preschoolers, Stress Management, Relationship Building, Womens Issues, and many other topics.

My therapeutic approach is interactive and emotionally focused, providing support and practical feedback to help clients effectively address personal life challenges.  I integrate complementary methodologies and techniques to offer a highly personalized approach tailored to each client. With compassion and understanding, I will work with you to help you build on your strengths and attain the personal growth you are committed to accomplishing.

Be aware that forming a therapeudic alliance is a primary focus of beginning therapy.  This takes a few sessions for me to get to know you and for you to decide if this is the right setting for you.  My goal is to create a safe and supportive atmosphere where you will not feel judged or criticized.  This is often a very difficult step for people who have been hurt, traumatized, misused or abused.  I look forward to the opportunitity of meeting you and working with you.  Please contact me for an appointment.
