A Fresh Perspective
Relationship Coach | Couples Counselor | Premarital Counselor | Breakup Recovery Coach | Life Coach
I have a very non-judgmental, emotionally safe approach to counseling and coaching: No matter what is going on with you, I’m here to help you get a deeper understanding of yourself and your feelings, and will support and assist you in making any changes that you desire.
In addition to having a great deal of empathy, compassion and understanding for the challenges that you face, I also bring a fresh perspective. Together, we can explore your situation and figure out what is best for you. Then, using positive, solution-focused strategies, I can help you attain it.
Couples Counseling | Relationship Coaching | Premarital Counseling | Marriage Counseling
Whether you’re boyfriend / girlfriend, preparing for marriage, or in a longer-term relationship I can help you understand each other, improve your communication, manage stressors, develop a more balanced relationship, identify and establish goals as a couple, increase your emotional and sexual intimacy, and learn how to appreciate each other. (Even your differences).
I pull from both my personal and professional experiences to help couples create long-lasting and healthy relationships. I will support you while gently pushing you past bad habits and breaking negative relationship patterns.
I have experience in helping couples:
- Negotiate cultural and religious differences
- Create healthy interracial relationships
- Work through infidelity
- Develop understanding and agreements around their families and extended families
- Figure out where your relationship is going, and how to get there together
I especially enjoy helping younger couples and premarital couples develop the positive relationship skills they need to create a bright future together. If your relationship feels like a roller coaster, I can help you create equilibrium and stability.
Additionally, if you are dating or thinking of committing to each other, I can also help you two determine if there is a future for your relationship. If not, I can help you part peacefully.
Life Coaching | Individual Therapy | Dating Coaching | Breakup Recovery Coaching
As a life coach and therapist, I’m here to empower you to make positive steps towards change in your life. I use a systemic approach that is based in compassion. I can be direct, but am always non-judgmental. I create an environment where you will feel supported in your journey of growth. I believe that you are an expert of your experiences and as your life coach, or therapist, I am here to help you re-author your preferred narrative for your life.
If you’re going through a hard breakup I’m here to provide you with comfort, support, and direction for how to heal. Together we can process what happened, help you get through the “emotional tornado,” attain clarity and closure, and develop a vision for what your new life should look like. I’m both a patient, affirming listener and an active partner helping you move forward.
If you are dating, I can help you attract new love into your life and build a healthy, stable relationship. I especially enjoy helping young adults figure out who they are, what they want (both out of life, and in their relationships) and how to create it. Together, we can discover your strengths and your opportunities for growth and positive change.
As a therapist, I have a passion for helping individuals rebuild their lives and relationships by overcoming their daily struggles in life. I have previous experience working with clients who have gone through hurtful life experiences. Specifically, I can help you with things like overcoming anxiety and depression, self-esteem issues, relationship struggles, family challenges, and difficult childhood experiences so that you can create a brighter future.
I have a Master’s of Science degree in Marriage and Family Therapy from Valdosta State University. I am an extreme animal and dog lover. I enjoy anything art related and spend my free time scrapbooking. I am based in Atlanta, Georgia, and available to work with you through online video.
