I am a graduate of the University of Florida where I earned a Bachelor of Science in Psychology in 1996. I completed my graduate degree in 1999 at the University of Georgia in a competitive master's counseling program that accepted roughly twelve candidates per year out of hundreds of applicants. I have completed additional training in trauma counseling, somatic counseling, EMDR, Emotionally Focused Couples Therapy (EFT), alcohol and drug counseling, cognitive behavioral therapy, grief counseling, and the treatment of perinatal and postpartum disorders.
Additionally, I have over eighteen years of post-graduate experience working in community counseling centers, renowned alcohol & drug treatment centers, hospice organizations, as well as my work in my private practices in Atlanta, North Palm Beach and Tequesta, FL.
Why bother to tell you all that? Because it's what you need to know to make an informed decision when choosing your therapist who will help you with important life concerns. It's the experience I bring to every session in my work with you. Contact me today to interview me, personally, and get started. I look forward to your call.
