I value continuous learning and incorporate my understanding of healthy development, neurobiology, memory systems, and attachment into my work. I enjoy being a therapist and I consider it a privilege to help people heal and reach their full potential.
You don’t have to worry about feeling judged or psychoanalyzed if you see me for therapy. I know no one has a perfect life and I will assume your behaviors and emotional reactions are logical and based on your previous experiences. I will help you envision and prepare for the future you'd like and I will encourage you to find new paths by being curious and nonjudgmental about the paths you've already been on.

After earning a bachelor's degree in aerospace engineering from Georgia Tech in 1990 and working in manufacturing and educational settings for a few years, I returned to school for a master's degree in psychology from Georgia College in 1993. I worked in counseling settings for a few years then earned a doctorate from University of Missouri-St. Louis in 2002. My graduate research and clinical focus was on sexual trauma and cognitive behavioral approaches to healing.
