Our first session is a getting to know you time. I will ask questions about your current situation, your history, your back ground, your personal goals, and what you want to get out of therapy. You will also have the opportunity to ask questions about the therapeutic process.
I have learned over the years that each person is the expert on their situation. They may not realize it but they have within them the ability to deal with the things life throws in their path. I feel that my job as a therapist is not to give my client the answer to their problems but to help them find the answer within themselves. I have learned that my job as a therapist is to guide, listen, and to give feedback on each unique problem.

I am a Licensed Professional Counselor with a Master’s Degree in Professional Counseling and a Bachelor of Science in Psychology, both from Liberty University. I work with adults of all ages in individual, couples and family therapy. Among the issues I address in therapy are anxiety, depression, relationships, stress, and grief. I primarily use Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Solution Focused Therapy and Dialectical Behavior Therapy. I am licensed by The Alabama Board of Examiners in Counseling as a Licensed Professional Counselor. I believe in a multi-faceted approach that includes lifestyle changes, tackling dysfunctional thinking, teaching healthy coping skills, addressing sources of distress, drawing from faith and values, understanding each unique situation and identifying possible solutions. Each person is unique; therefore, we work together to craft a specific plan designed for your needs. As a therapist, I do not tell you what to do. I strive to empower you to make the best possible decisions.
