I am a pastoral counselor who works with people of faith, married couples, and adoptive families.
Licensed Professional Counselor in Decatur, GA
As a pastoral counselor and chaplain, I work with people of faith to allow them to use their faith as a tool for empowering their mental and psychological health. While I am trained in the Christian faith ( Masters of Divinity), I also have worked with people from Jewish and Islamic backgrounds as a chaplain. In particular, I have helped many people navigate through issues of grief and loss, anxiety, and finding meaning in life.
As a person who has been married for over 24years I have walked through the rewards and challenges of marriage. I can work with you to help you communicate better with your spouse, and find ways to avoid marital drift and reconnect with one another.
As an adoptive parent and counselor I understand the challenges faced in blending a family through adoption. I can work with you and your children on issues of grief and loss, identity formation, and attachment in blending your family.
I work with clients to help them understand how they see the world and to find meaning in their lives and experiences.
I help clients look through their family of origin connections to help them discover their sources of anxiety, stress, and how those connections influence their present choices
I will work with you to understand the emotional content that hijacks your relationship and teach you how to safely communicate with one another. You will learn about your reactive cycles, fears, and emotional triggers that create conflict in your relationship. Safe communication builds trust, intimacy, love, and partnership.
