A person living with chronic pain once described pain as “a hurricane that moves through and changes your life forever.” Similarly, chronic pain can leave a path of destruction in an individual’s life in the form of damaged relationships, emotional distress and shattered dreams. My passion is helping individuals lead fuller, better lives while managing the pain and stress of daily living. By responding in ways that are flexible and life-enhancing, I believe individuals can stop struggling with chronic pain and start LIVING!
I offer individual treatment for people with chronic pain, anxiety and stress-related disorders and have been doing this for the past 9 years. My methods are based on Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) and Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT). I work with people age 18 or older.
My educational background includes a MS in Clinical Psychology and a B.A. in Psychology from Augusta University. I’m a Licensed Professional Counselor in the state of Georgia.
