Serenity Therapy Services, LLC
I provide individual, family, and couple's therapy for a variety of issues, and I see clients ages 3 and up. I utilize several therapy models, including play therapy, solution-focused therapy, strategic therapy, narrative therapy, and cognitive behavioral therapy. My practice is located in the Maynard Baptist Church Counseling Center in Forsyth and Christian-based counseling services are available. At this time, I am only approved as an in-network provider for Aetna, but am in the processing of applying to become an in-network provider for many other insurance companies. I am available during evening and weekend hours. I have 7 years of experience providing therapy services.
Bio
I was born in Riverdale, GA, and was raised in Forest Park, GA. I graduated with honors from Forest Park High School in 1999. I attend the University of GA, Athens, where I studied child and family development and earned my bachelor's degree in 2003. During this time, I became interested in becoming a therapist and began interning with the Marriage and Family Therapy Clinic on campus, as well as the Families 4 Change Program, which provided group counseling and psychoeducational services to teens who were first offenders in the legal system and their families. I went on to attend the Marriage and Family Therapy Master's program at Valdosta State University, where I spent one year of the program providing therapy under supervision. During my Master's program, I interned at several agencies, including a local mental health agency, a homeless shelter, and the campus clinic. Upon completing my Master's degree, I moved to Forsyth, GA. Since graduating, I have worked for various agencies, including Phoenix Center CSB, GRN CSB, and Morningstar CFS. I currently work at Family Counseling Center of Central GA in Macon, as well as in my private practice in Forsyth.
