What I am is good enough if I would only be it openly.  -Carl Rogers

Welcome to my website and thank you for visiting. On theses pages you will find information about me and my practice. Please let me know if you have any questions. Feel free to look around and see if I’m a good fit for your needs.  I hope to hear from you soon.

My office is conveniently located just off Dale Mabry Highway. You can easily reach me via I-275 or the Veterans Expressway.


If you’re here today, this means you’ve decided that your tomorrow will be different. You may have thought about seeking therapy now and then for years or maybe just a few days. Regardless, you may be ready for something new in your life. I believe all of us have a desire to feel peaceful & positive about ourselves & to live a vital authentic life. Sometimes stresses related to work, relationships, & our views of ourselves can present challenges. Therapy is a resource. My counseling relationships are guided by my respect for the individual person. My approach to mental health is collaborative. I’m interested in my client’s ideas, thoughts, & feelings. I have a strong belief that people have the potential to grow, change, and thrive.

Evening & Weekend Hours

Are you having trouble finding a counselor who is available in the evening or on weekends?  I have flexible evening & weekend hours available.

Contacting Me

I believe that a good fit between a counselor & client is essential to therapy. Before you schedule an appointment, I’ll want to talk with you briefly over the phone to determine whether I’m a good fit for your particular issues and needs. In addition, you may have specific questions or concerns that I have not addressed on this website. I look forward to talking with you.
