WHAT I ENJOY DOING THE MOST is helping people improve their lives and enhance the quality of their relationships. I am a Licensed Professional Counselor, a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist, a Certified Addiction Counselor, and a Pastoral/Christian Counselor. I hold a Doctoral Degree in Pastoral Counseling from Columbia Theological Seminary in Decatur, Georgia. I completed the Master of Divinity Degree at Emory University’s Candler School of Theology in Atlanta, Georgia. I also did graduate studies at Vanderbilt University in Nashville, Tennessee, and post-graduate studies at Georgia State University. I have a Bachelor of Arts Degree from American Baptist College (Magnum Cum Laude) in Nashville, Tennessee.
IN COUNSELING, I seek to create an oasis of respect and safety, where you could heal from your past hurts and pain, face your present doubts and fears, and take control of your future and purpose.
EXPERIENCE: I have been practicing professional counseling for close to fifteen years. I am married and have three daughters, two of whom are twins. I enjoy working with families, as they learn to connect better. I have received extensive training in marriage/couple’s counseling. I am approved by the state of Georgia to provide DUI Clinical Evaluation and Level I Treatment. Over the span of twenty years, I have worked in leadership positions with governmental agencies, non-profit organizations, and Christian religious institutions. I am very skilled in integrating the spiritual aspects with the psychological dimensions of life. I enjoy helping individuals, couples, and families. I would be happy to help you improve your life and to enhance the quality of your relationships.
