Vision and Purpose
To assist others in achieving alignment and wholeness: mind. body. soul. work.
Because when all the "parts" of our lives and selves are in alignment, we experience greater peace, contentment, joy, and passion.
"... and as we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give others permission to do the same." --Marianne Williamson
- I value the courage required to be our authentic selves in every environment, and the peace that comes when we choose to do so.
- I value excellence - both in the high standards for the work I produce, as well as the outcomes I work with our clients to create in their own lives.
- I value myself and others. I believe that amazing things happen when we live from a place of passion. I believe that there is enough for all to experience abundance. I believe that we can go farther, together. I believe in the goodness and worthiness of all people. I believe that we don't have to go broke in order to help others or make art or follow our own individual dreams.
- I value a balance of hard work while practicing non-striving. I believe the hard work required for success does not have to equal high stress.
I am the owner, therapist, yoga instructor, and consultant at Align Wellness Solutions. If that sounds like a funky bunch of titles, it is!
In my latest roles, I have worked to create programs that address clients' needs in an integrated and holistic way. Through my research and experience in creating programs that incorporate yoga, meditation, nutrition, physical fitness, outlets for creativity, and spirituality into traditional models of mental health treatment, I have been thoroughly convinced of the necessity of each of these components in our wellness - my own, my clients', my employees', all of ours.
I believe that it is crucial for our happiness that all areas of our lives be in alignment: body. mind. soul. work. At Align Wellness Solutions, I provide therapy, instruction, and coaching to help you make it so.
Do you need counseling services to get some mental health symptoms under control, smooth out some relationship issues, or just work through some general life kinks? I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker who specializes in helping others working on recovery from addiction, depression and anxiety, issues of low self-worth, and the LGBTQ community.
Looking for some individualized attention for beginning a yoga and meditation practice for physical and spiritual benefit? I am a Registered Yoga Teacher (RYT-200) with Yoga Alliance. Want therapy and yoga together? Even better! I love merging my two passions, and am a strong believer in the therapeutic benefit of engaging our minds and our bodies together in this brave work!
Coaching? Training and Supervision? Consulting? Through my experiences as clinician, clinical supervisor, administrator, program designer, start-up leader, fundraiser, and marketer, I have a unique skill-set to help you navigate these waters. Helping individuals and organizations clarify barriers, find solutions, and chart a path towards new goals is one of my very favorite ways to use my talents!
In addition to being owner of Align Wellness Solutions, I am the host of the podcast Be Well ATL, and co-founder and Past-President of the LGBTQ Therapist Resource. I spend my free time yoga-ing, singing and songwriting, exploring Atlanta's culinary delights, enjoying the synergistic magic of combining brunch, patios, and sunglasses, laughing a little louder and cussing a little more than some people care for.
