I am a licensed psychologist, practicing in Decatur, GA. I am a Fellow of the Georgia Psychological Association and in the past, have served as Chair of the Committee on Gender and Sexual Diversity and as a member of the Continuing Education Committee. I am a past member of the Society for the Scientific Study of Sexuality (SSSS), the National Coalition for Sexual Freedom (NCSF), and the World Professional Association for Transgender Health (WPATH). With WPATH, I was on the organizing committee for the 2012 International Symposium, served on the organizing committee for the Global Education Initiative (GEI), was a master onboarder for the professional mentor program, and continue to serve as part of the national teaching faculty.
I work from humanistic and emotion focused approaches with an eye to sociocultural influences. This means that I view clients as whole people who are growing, discovering, and creating themselves, in particular and specific environments. I see my role as helping clients to connect or reconnect to their own expertise in knowing themselves and making positive choices.
I provide individual and relationship therapy to adults with a broad range of concerns including mood difficulties, adjustment concerns, issues related to anxiety, interpersonal difficulties, and sexual concerns. People exploring their gender identities, and people negotiating relationship organizations that fall outside the mainstream female-male dyad consistently feel comfortable in therapy with me. I believe there are a wide variety of desires, identities, and relationship organizations that are healthy and I do not pathologize diversity. I meet you where you are and respect your choices about where you want to go.
