I am a License Professional Counselor in the state of Georgia. I am a National Certified Counselor. I have a Master of Education Degree in Counseling and Personnel Services from the University of Maryland. I have over 15 years of practice experience working with children, adolescents, adults and families in residential, community-based and outpatient services. I have worked collaboratively with state, local and federal agencies providing long and short-term assessment and treatment planning.
Trauma is a distressing event in which a person feels severely threatened emotionally, psychologically, or physically. Most people will experience a traumatic event at some point in their lives. Many people recover from trauma with time and through the support of family and friends, bouncing back with great resiliency, but for others, the effects of trauma are lasting, causing a person to live with deep emotional pain, fear, confusion, or post-traumatic stress far after the event has passed. I have extensive practice experience working with women and adolescent females around trauma that has resulted from anxiety, depression, self-esteem, relationship challenges and abuse/domestic violence.
I utilize innovative strategies to deliver symbolic techniques that increase awareness, motivate growth, and empower others. I collaborate with the clients regarding their psychological or emotional issues to aid them in developing the strategies that will assist them to develop and implement changes that will assist them in progressing towards their goals and leading more enriched productive life.I specialize in the use of Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Trauma-Focus CBT (TF-CBT), Solution-Focused and Dialectical Behavior Therapy(DBT) interventions to treat Anxiety, Depression, Bipolar, Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder, Oppositional Behaviors, and Adjustment Disorder. In addition, I am trained to work with the Commercial Sexual Exploitation of Children (CSEC).
In addition, I am a Certified Anger Management Specialist. I assist clients to change their distorted thinking that leads to excessive anger and other negative emotions, while teaching clients new ways to think and behave in situations that often lead to anger. I utilized a holistic approach because I feel that the mind, body and spirit are intertwine.
As you are the aware my symbol is a butterfly. I believe in transformation and growth of a beautiful unique creature that emerges. We all have that ability to grow and transform ourselves into that beautiful and wonderful human being.
So Like that Butterfly, you have the strength & the hope to believe, In time you will emerge from your cocoon…. Transformed…
Still my passion...
