In Eastern Time
I consider first sessions as more of an interview of me. It's a time for you, as a client, to get a sense of who I am and decide whether or not you feel like I will be the right fit for you. Because of this, I call the first session an initial consultation and it is a 30 minute conversation free of charge. We will each talk about our expectations of therapy and general goals that you have in seeking professional help. We'll go over rates and logistics as well as all the information necessary for you to make an informed decision. At the end of the session, there is no pressure to make another appointment, but instead I'll give you options of how to reach me if you'd like to continue to work with me. If. you feel like I'm not the best fit for you, I'll be happy to help you seek other options.

I began my professional career as a hospital social worker, working in a major pediatric hospital emergency room in Texas. I worked closely with the medical teams to provided crisis intervention and emotional support to families of children experiencing illness and injury. It was a bit like being thrown into a lake to learn to swim, but I learned from patients and the medical providers how important trust and compassion is in times of stress. After moving to Georgia, I worked as a counselor at a substance abuse and mental health treatment facility. I had the privilege of working on a trauma unit there, where we specifically worked with women who had a history of complex trauma. During that time, I sought training in EMDR and began learning and understanding the many ways that trauma manifests in all of our lives. In 2017, I decided to start working in private practice in the rural community I was living in. I joined with a partner as we became the only two full-time licensed mental health professionals in our county. Because of this, I was able to see a great variety of clients, from children to geriatric adults, of all races and economic standing. During that time, I also began writing abstracts and presenting at conferences, both local and national, on issues such as trauma and attachment. In the fall of 2020, I moved to Athens, Georgia and have started a private practice. Due to COVID-19, I am solely working through Telehealth and I am focusing on working with individual adults. I'm continuing my education through professional consultation and supervision.
