About Me

The niche that has found me is complex childhood trauma. I have found that many of my clients have been in and out of therapy and are starting to regain hope and peace. I absolutely love what I do and have found my passion. I use a compassion filled approach that is tailored to each individual client. I believe educating clients on various topics that are impacting them create a better understanding and insight that allows healing to occur. We do not know what we do not know... Until we do. Once you are aware, you cannot become unaware again.

Education & Experience

I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker and obtained my Masters of Social Work from the University of Georgia. I have worked in multiple crisis management facilities where I have assisted individuals facing all types of mental health conditions. I specialize in Complex Childhood Trauma and utilize multiple evidence based practices including but not limited to DBT and EMDR to produce positive change.
