I work with older adolescents and adults. For the first session, you will be requested to arrive 30 minutes prior to you scheduled appointment time to complete preliminary paperwork.
During our first meeting, I will gather important background information to help me get a clear understanding about your reason for seeking counseling. I will then give you a clear picture of whether I believe counseling could be helpful to you. Referrals to other providers are made as clinically indicated, such as medical evaluations.
I work with couples seeking premarital counseling, early marital adjustment issues, transitioning into parenthood, sexual issues, financial stressors, job loss, parenting conflicts, affair recovery, and communication issues. I also work with "empty nest" couples.
I work with families to address issues that help promote better understanding and healing within the family unit. Some examples of family counseling might be parent/child, a multi generational family, a married couple and one set of their parents.

I am an Alabama approved supervisor for those wanting to obtain their State Counseling License (Associate Licensed Counselor / Licensed Professional Counselor). This fee-based service is offered in an individual setting to accommodate the learning style and theoretical orientation of the associate.
Supervision requirements are regulated by the Alabama Board of Examiners for Counselors. Please check with this organization for more information.
I am a provider for many health insurance companies* including:
