Clinical Social Worker in Atlanta, GA
Working with cancer survivors has taught me a great deal about the strength of the human spirit. There are so many emotional challenges that come with a cancer diagnosis: fears about the future, going through grueling treatments, and worries about your family members, your career, and finances. Working with an experienced therapist can help you learn new skills to cope with your illness and help you get back to being yourself, even while going through treatments.
Medical professionals often enter their fields because of a desire to help others. But being a member of a helping profession can be overwhelming at times causing you to disconnect from your patients and even your friends and family members. I can help you reconnect with the satisfaction of caring for others, learn to maintain good professional boundaries and care for yourself along the way.
Coping with a chronic illness or pain can be draining and exhausting. It may seem like things will never get better and your life will never be the same. By examining your values, you can discover new priorities that can reinvigorate your life and lead you to growth and satisfaction. Cognitive Behavioral Therapies and Compassion Focused techniques can make a big difference in your wellbeing. Let's work on these together and get you back on track!

I have trained in Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction and Mindfulness Based Cognitive Therapy and integrate mindfulness practices into my treatment of anxiety, depression, coping with medical illnesses, and compassion fatigue/burnout.
CBT is considered the gold-standard care for depression and examining the ways that our thoughts impact our feelings and behaviors can be beneficial for many people experiencing stressful life events. I have received extensive training in CBT throughout my career and I am ready to help you address any unhelpful thoughts that might be getting in the way of the life you want to have!
ACT is one of the "Third Wave" CBT practices and incorporates behavioral strategies and mindfulness techniques. These strategies help clients identify their values, better understand what things are getting in the way of their ability to live a life that is congruent with these values, and begin to live a values-oriented life that is rich and vibrant.
