I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker and received my master’s of social work degree with honors at The Ohio State University College of Social Work. I have been in the field of social work and therapy since 1991. Throughout my career, I have worked with victims of various traumatic events, including domestic violence, sexual assault, and childhood abuse.
I have also spent years working in the fields of home health and hospice, as well as providing support and psychotherapy to homeless individuals and those suffering from HIV/AIDS. My diverse work experiences have allowed me to counsel individuals struggling with such issues as addiction, depression, anxiety, grief, and adjust to unexpected life events. Despite my knowledge of various therapeutic techniques, I believe in using an approach that best fits the client and honors the resilience of an individual’s spirit, mind, and body.
During my free time, I enjoy life at the beach, traveling with my husband, playing with our 2 dogs, and designing leather handbags. I am also a member of the National Association of Social Workers, as well as the Savannah Association of Social Workers.
Shelby is my rescue dog who likes to provide support and love to my clients. Although advancing in years and unable to hear, Shelby still enjoys greeting clients with the wag of her tail but may snore through your session!
If you have an allergy to pet hair, a fear of dogs, or an emotional support animal that travels with you, please contact me prior to your visit and Shelby will spend the day at home.
