I believe that everyone goes through tough periods in life where they sometimes need a trained professional to help them get back on track. I see it as a step of empowerment rather than failure to acknowledge there are issues that need to be addressed in one’s life.
My goal in my practice is to provide a safe, supportive place where clients can explore issues they are facing. I am a licensed clinical psychologist with a B.A. from Samford University, Masters and Doctorate degrees from the University of Alabama. I completed my internship at the Birmingham VA/UAB Department of Psychiatric Medicine. My graduate school training focused on chronic pain, cardiac rehabilitation, developing/implementing health education campaigns and weight loss. I also specialize in depression, anxiety, life transitions, infertility, working with adolescents and parents on communication/building bonds, life/work balance, managing chronic illness, and couples therapy.
