Areas of Clinical Emphasis
I work with clients who are in their mid-teens through all of adulthood. I am able to work with most concerns, with an emphasis on multicultural aspects of care and functioning. In addition, the most common areas of concern in my practice include:
- Interpersonal and Relationship Concerns
- Identity Concerns
- Grief and Loss
What to Expect if We Work Together
I believe that the majority of progress in therapy is based in the therapeutic relationship. Because of this, I work hard to build a relationship in which clients can safely explore their concerns. This includes a supportive environment that is free of judgement. I also believe that supportive challenge is helpful. In other words, I may gently challenge you to consider past and current relationships, thoughts and emotions, and motivation for change. My training and experience with a variety of populations has helped me develop a wide range of skills to work with most concerns. Furthermore, I pride myself on providing a safe space for all clients. Anyone is welcome in my office.
I am a Licensed Psychologist (AL #2023) in the state of Alabama. I received a BA in Psychology from Auburn University, followed by an MS in Psychology and PsyD in Clinical Psychology from Georgia Southern University. My pre-doctoral internship was at the Georgia Southern University Counseling and Career Development Center. There I focused on individual and group therapy with university students. I also have experience with adolescents in both rehabilitation and community settings. In addition, I have worked with adults of all ages in community settings and with older adults in long-term care. After some time away, I returned to the Auburn area in 2014 to reconnect with the community that I consider to be home. In my free time, I follow Auburn sports (War Eagle!), play golf, and spend time with my family–including my wife, two daughters, and a variety of pets.
