I am a Licensed Psycholgist (AL #2023) who received a BA in Psychology from Auburn University in 2004, an MS in Psychology from Georgia Southern University in 2011, and a PsyD in Clinical Psychology from Georgia Southern University in 2013. I completed an internship in Clinical Psychology at the Georgia Southern University Counseling and Career Development Center, with a focus on individual and group therapy with a university student population. I returned to the Auburn area in 2014 in order to reconnect with the Auburn community and build on my professional experiences in an environment that I consider to be home. I spend my free time following Auburn sports (War Eagle!), playing golf, and spending time with my family, which includes my wife, two daughters, and a variety of pets.
How I Work
I believe that the majority of progress in therapy is based in the therapeutic relationship. I work hard to build a relationship that will allow clients the opportunity to safely explore their concerns in a supportive environment that is free of judgement. I believe that strong therapeutic relationships allow me to supportively challenge clients to examine past and current relationships, thoughts and emotions, and motivation for change. My training and experience with a variety of populations has helped me develop into a therapist with a wide range of skills. I pride myself on providing a safe space for all clients. I have worked with college students, juvenile adolescents, adults of all ages, and geriatrics, with an emphasis on multicultural aspects of care and functioning.
