I am a Georgia Licensed Professional Counselor and Yoga Therapist specializing in treating anxiety disorders and supporting eating disorder recovery. I provide individual psychotherapy, yoga therapy groups, Intuitive and Mindful Eating Groups and Heart Rate Variability Biofeedback in my private practice in Grant Park. I enjoy helping adult women manage anxiety and depression as well as develop a healthy relationship with food and their bodies. Please read more about my approach to psychotherapy here.
I have over 19 years of experience in the field of mental health. In the past, I have done in-home therapy with families, I have worked in a residential setting with children and adolescents as a therapist and Clinical Director and have worked at an outpatient center for eating disorders. I have led yoga therapy groups at Atlanta Center for Eating Disorders, Ridgeview Institute's Women's Unit and Foundations Recovery Network. I worked in private practice at Midtown Psychotherapy Associates for 7 years providing individual psychotherapy and yoga therapy groups for women. In 2019, I began Intown Atlanta Psychotherapy and Yoga located in Grant Park.
A little about me personally...I live in downtown Atlanta with my husband and our rescue hound, Penny. We love to hike and visit the mountains. I enjoy spending time outdoors, gardening, being with friends and family, reading, being creative, cooking and practicing yoga.
