'BE CONSTRUCTIVE
WITH YOUR BLUES'

ABOUT

ABOUT ME

ABOUT ME

I'm basically the same person as a therapist and not a therapist, which is someone who's really into deep conversation, bad puns, and exploring what's bothering you and how to resolve it.

Before turning my attention to counseling, some passions included filmmaking, writing, and pet sitting. To stay creative I'm always tinkering with a range of projects and keeping up with live music, new songs, and art of all kinds. I bring this creativity into our work together, to address the stuck points in your life in a very personalized and hopefully unique way. 

As a heads up, I'm going to need to know your favorite movie before we get started!

EXPERIENCE

Through volunteering at the local Crisis Line and seven years of employment at an eating disorder treatment center, I've had the chance to work with a variety of highly complex issues – with individuals, couples, and families – before stepping into private practice in 2021 to specialize in Psychedelic Assisted Therapies, Brainspotting, and EMDR.

I'm beyond excited about each of these techniques, as I've seen tremendous results for a large spectrum of presenting concerns, and would love to meet with you to discuss the details of how they work and which one might best address whatever's weighing you down.


If helpful, I'm also happy to share about my own encounters with life to remind you that you're not alone.

WORKING TOGETHER

After becoming one of Alabama's first specialists in Psychedelic Assisted Psychotherapies and launching the state's first fully legal Psychedelic Studio in early 2022, the overwhelming demand for these services required significant changes to my therapy practice to better meet the needs of our community.

Adapting to this high and increasing demand for Ketamine Assisted Psychotherapy, Brainspotting, EMDR, and consultation about psychedelic-assisted therapy, I now exclusively specialize in these services.

If you are looking to enter therapy for the first time or have no interest in Ketamine Assisted Psychotherapy or non-traditional/non-talk therapies like Brainspotting or EMDR, I may not be the best fit at this time. If you'd like to explore these offerings, however, I would love to hear from you through the WAITLIST SURVEY!

To address frequently asked questions, I've written detailed responses HERE that should answer many of them. After reading, please complete this WAITLIST & GENERAL INTEREST SURVEY if you would like to work together. At this time, I'm unable to respond to e-mails as personally or efficiently as I would like, but I do read all messages sent to the e-mail address listed below.
