I am a Licensed Associate Professional Counselor with a Master’s of Science degree from Lee University in Cleveland, TN. My passion is for seeing individuals, couples and families establish and restore healthy relationships, and I believe strongly that whole-body healing is possible. As a result, I take a holistic approach to helping: integrating physical, mental/emotional, and spiritual approaches into the lives of those I work with. I see the client as the expert on themselves, and collaboratively walk beside them on their journey of enhancement.
I have been active in a variety of counseling settings, gaining experience with individuals, couples, and parents, both adults and adolescents who were encountering a number of broad issues. I have worked in the university counseling setting, helping college-age students process their identity development and individuation, as well as issues related to separation from family of origin. I have also worked with trauma victims, empowering and encouraging women who have experienced physical, emotional, sexual abuse to find healing and wholeness. My experience and sense of adventure have even taken me to Thailand , where I lived among the many women employed in the sex-trade industries, teaching counseling groups centered on healthy relationships and empowerment, and absorbing the dynamics of Thai culture.
As an avid world traveler, I enjoy working with clients from many different cultural and religious backgrounds. However, as a Christian myself, I specialize in counseling from a Christian perspective. I encourage and welcome my clients to discuss their beliefs in whatever way they are comfortable.
I work under the direction of Kathryn Hawkins Truax, MS, LPC and the clinical direction of Annie Kelahan, LPC, ATR.
My practice is with TRU Integrative Health and Wellness, located in the Buckhead area of Atlanta, GA.
