My Story

Imagine having a brave space to discover your own unique intersectional identity and voice. Imagine how much confidence you would have in yourself.  How great would that feel? I opened the doors to my practice to individuals seeking mental health services in the Athens, GA — offering them a wide range of counseling services to guide them through life’s challenges and most trying times.


Life can get difficult, and sometimes a little help from a professional Licensed Clinical Social Worker can make the journey a little easier. I care about your well-being and provide you with the tools you need in order to seize the day and learn how to tackle even the most traumatic and challenging circumstances.

I have two locations that I serve, Madison, GA and Athens, GA.
