I am a clinical psychologist, board-certified clinical hypnotherapist, and author in the Metro Atlanta region specializing in individual therapy, hypnotherapy, and family consultations around health concerns.
With over eighteen years of experience as a clinical psychologist, I work with a broad spectrum of clients across the lifespan who are feeling limited by chronic pain or illness, having difficulty after losing a loved one, adjusting to life changes, experiencing constant sadness, or being overwhelmed with anxiety and stress.
In therapy, I collaborate effectively with individuals to address personal life challenges, finding a holistic path to wellness that is especially designed for them. Together, we create a treatment plan that builds upon personal strengths, one that is in keeping with salient values. It is my firm belief that there is not just one path to health and enhanced well-being.
I can help you with chronic disease management, grief and loss, adjustment issues, depression, anxiety, and stress management. Using evidence-based treatment approaches including Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Acceptance & Commitment Therapy, Interpersonal Therapy, and Exposure Therapy, as well as other techniques. I am here to provide you with compassionate and understanding support, practical guidance, and coaching as you work to attain the personal growth you’re committed to accomplishing.
Originally from St. Thomas, United States Virgin Islands, I identify as Caribbean-American and am sensitive to issues of cultural identity.
