About this pro

Anxiety and depression rob us of our ability to enjoy life.  They take over everything, no matter how hard we try to not let them.  Therapy helps people to learn how to not let anxiety and depression take over.  I work with clients to learn the skills and think differently to manage symptoms. 

My services are completely online.  I often meet with clients before they go to work, during lunch breaks, or even after their kids go to bed.

I provide a safe environment where clients can talk about their behaviors, thoughts, and feelings without the fear of being criticized and judged.  Online therapy allows for clients to be in the area of their choosing, without the worry of arranging time for commuting. 

I know what it is like to be afraid and to not be able to motivate myself to get out of bed. I enjoy helping people to get through difficult times and showing them that living is possible.

FAQs


What is your typical process for working with a new customer?

First, we can schedule a free consultation. During the consultation you can ask me any questions. We can talk about what you hope to accomplish and the challenges you are facing.

Next, you make the determination as to whether or not we are a good fit for each other. If we are, WONDERFUL! If not, I want to make sure you get the help you need. If you would like, I can reach out to my network of therapists to see if there may be someone that is a better fit for your needs.

If you decide to schedule an appointment, I will send you the electronic consent paperwork that you will complete prior to the appointment. I will also send you instructions and a link to download the HIPPA Secure Video Conferencing software that we will use whenever we meet for the session. If you prefer to meet by phone, that is fine too. I will still send you the documents. However, instead of meeting on the videoconferencing software, I will call you on the phone. During the first session, I will explain how things work and we will discuss the Consent Documentation. I will also do an assessment of you to get a really good idea of what is going on.

In Sessions 2 + we will develop treatment goals and will determine the best course of treatment together. I may assign you homework to complete in between sessions. Homework can be anything from worksheets to completing a specific task. It just depends on what you’re comfortable with. We move at a pace that you are comfortable with. Therapy is a partnership that depends on both of us being committed to you feeling better.


What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

I received my Master of Social Work (MSW) from the University of South Carolina at Columbia in 2008.  

I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker (LCSW) in the States of Georgia, Florida and Texas.

I am also a Board Certified TeleMental-Health Practitioner (BC-TMH).

Family Therapy Structure:

To do effective Family Therapy, it is an intensive process. Unfortunately, families can’t usually be helped in a 50 minute session weekly. There are simply too many variables to consider.

For this reason, I offer a different style of family therapy that is based on the week instead of the session.

Weekly Set-Up:

1X 60 Minute Session via video chat.

2X 30 Minute Phone Calls for Consultation

Daily Messaging Available

Family Therapy Rates

Sliding Scale: $120 to $170

How did you get started in this business?

My younger brother has Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD).  Growing up and seeing the challenges faced by my family inspired me to go into mental health.  My story is detailed on my website:

I specalize in Anxiety and Stress management as well as trauma recovery.  I also work with individuals suffering from depression and other mood disorders.  


What advice would you give a customer looking to hire a pro in your area of expertise?

As therapists, we work for you.  It is important that you don't waste time (and money) meeting with someone that doesn't fit with your needs. 

It is OK to find someone else.  I tell my clients from the beginning, if you don't like where this is going, that is OK. I have even helped clients find therapists that better fit their needs.  I don't take it personally.  It is important that you get the help that you need.  


What questions should customers think through before talking to pros about their needs?

How would you go about treating my problem(s)? How many clients have you had that have issues similar to mine?  How successful have you neen with those clients? What is your general approach and philosophy to helping?
