Licensed both as a Marriage and Family Therapist and as a Clinical Social Worker, I have been helping your friends and neighbors in the Atlanta area for 30 years. My style is empathic; most people find me easy to talk to. I collaborate with you to discover where your growth is blocked and to build a more satisfying life on the foundation of strengths you already have, including any spiritual resources. I draw on social work's person-in-the-environment focus, cognitive-behavioral techniques, emotionally focused couple therapy, family systems theory, modern psychoanalytic theories, Eastern and 12-step philosophies, to guide our work together.
I offer both day and evening appointments in a wheelchair-accessible office that is on the busline. Please note that I check voicemail more often than email, so that is the fastest way to reach me.
