I’m lucky enough to say that I am doing exactly what I want to do for a living. I enjoy coming to session, meeting new people, and figuring exactly what we need to do to get things moving. My website itself will demonstrate my very informal demeanor, but don’t let that fool you. Counseling is my passion and I take it as seriously as a medical treatment.
My accent will give me rural GA heritage away immediately which was made pretty clear during my time at Georgia State University. I obtained my B.A in Psychology with a minor in criminal justice, decided I liked it so much that I stayed another 2 years to get my M.S in Rehabilitation counseling. After graduation I went straight into the field to start working with families in the home and community setting. Community work is very rewarding but it is also a struggle. However, I have been lucky to work under and learn from brilliant clinicians who have the same passion and desire for clinical development as I do. Aside from my work experience in the community setting, I’ve worked in Detox and Psychiatric Units.
I became fully Licensed in 2015, 3 years after graduating from GSU. I’m also a certified rehabilitation counselor (CRC) which I obtained before graduating from GSU. Since graduating I have managed to attach myself great teachers who have helped me developing additional skills and expertise, which lead me to the wonderful world of Attachment!
Match Point is my way of trying to push back against the growing mental health issues in our country. I think everyone deserves quality mental health treatment regardless of income, nationality, gender etc. Even if I don’t currently accept your insurance or maybe my fee seems a bit pricey for you, please call me or send an email. I don’t remember a time I haven’t been able to work something out with someone who was trying to help themselves.
So why do I call my counseling private practice Match Point? Because tennis is hard and often times, life can be pretty challenging as well. Life requires you to think about the way you are playing the game, why you are losing points, and what you need to do to fix it. This can be a real challenge that affects us all differently and to different extents. Building insight and learning new ways to play the game of life can be a difficult but rewarding journey that often time can be a bit easier with a little guidance. But if you just keep swinging, you are bound to make something happen for yourself.
