  • How will I know if you're the right person for me?
    This is an important question to ask yourself. The process of opening up to a new person and sharing details of your life, your history, and your relationships is a deeply personal one, and I recommend considering the following prior to committing to a therapist (including me): Is the clinician licensed? Clinicians who are licensed by the State of Georgia have completed at least a Master's degree in the field of study. They have also completed a period of supervised experience during which they continue to develop their skills. Most importantly, they must adhere to legal and ethical guidelines designed to protect clients and the public. I am a Licensed Professional Counselor, LPC006126 in the State of Georgia. Does the clinician have a specific orientation, or lens, through which they see change happening? Some clients have done some extensive research and know that they want a specific type, or orientation, of therapy. Examples include CBT, EFT, and Object Relations. While I use a variety of techniques, my approach is based on feminist principles of empowerment--when we feel like we have the power to make change in our lives, we begin to see ourselves as powerful co-creators of our happiness.
  • You say you're a Multicultural Feminist. What does that mean? Do you work with men?
    When I refer to myself as a Multicultural Feminist therapist, it means that I consider each person's experience within the context of his or her social and cultural realities, and how these realities oftentimes result in people feeling disempowered. In session, we may talk about how factors such as gender, race, sexuality, and socioeconomic location have contributed to the client's reasons for commencing and benefitting from counseling. I very much appreciate working with men, and men account for approximately 40% of my clients. I believe men can benefit from a feminist approach because they, too, have been affected by gender stereotypes and cultural expectations that may contribute to their current or chronic dissatisfaction.
  • What are your fees?
    Fees are determined by a variety of factors but start at $175 for an initial assessment, and then $135 for each individual session and $150 for a couples session. If you would like to use your health insurance benefits (please see above regarding insurance), the fee that you pay may be significantly less and determined by the terms of your policy. If cost is an impediment to receiving services, please let me know and we can discuss options. Cash, check, and most major credit cards are accepted, including Visa, MasterCard, Discover, and American Express (via IvyPay)
