    My job as a psychologist is to create and maintain a judgment-free environment for individuals to express themselves openly and get to know, and accept themselves. I enjoy inspiring others to break free from maladaptive patterns and escape ruts that hinder growth and emotional healthiness.  As such, my role in the therapeutic relationship is to provide assistance to those searching for change, answers, or new ways of thinking and responding to life's challenges.
    As co-founders of ATL Psychotherapy and Consulting Services LLC., I specialize in an eclectic mix of cognitive behavioral therapy and insight-oriented therapy geared toward assisting the client in discovering his or her own answers and taking control of his or her own life this is accomplished through:

•providing assessments, 
•training's and workshop
•supervising predoctoral and postdoctoral interns, 

 • experience providing evaluations related


•bariatric surgery and organ transplant hopefuls, 
•parental fitness, 
•psycho sexual issues, 
•vocational and career exploration,  
•autism spectrum disorder screenings, 
•general intellectual, 
•academic and personality testing.
I am also a professor in the Department of Psychology at Clark Atlanta University: 
Classes Taught: 
•forensic psychology,
•cross-cultural psychology, 
•psychological testing 
• supervising the internship course

     I provide professional consultation to organizations and businesses and have led trainings and workshops on myriad topics to diverse populations including:

• stress management in the workplace, 
•coping with children with behavior disorders in the home, 
•confronting issues of racial, gender
•, sexual-orientation 
•weight discrimination, 
•HIV and AIDS counseling, 
•healthy notions of womanhood and the relationship between mental and physical health. 



I work with adults with severe mental illnesses at a psycho-social rehabilitation center, I complete evaluations for social service agencies that provide in-home intensive family intervention and CORE services, and I work with adolescents facing charges in the Fulton County Juvenile Court. 
    I treat children, adolescents and adults and particularly specialize in young children with attachment disorders, abuse histories, and foster care placement, teens negotiating identity issues and coping with chronic oppositional behavior, adults coping with occupational or relationship stress, chronic medical problems, and women's issues, and older adults confronting life's changes.  Sometimes the support of others with similar experiences is therapeutic. I also lead revolving therapy groups for specific populations such as adolescent girls, parents caring for children with behavioral problems, or socially anxious adults.
