About Us

Growth EmPowerment Services, LLC is a private practice that provides mental health/psychotherapy services. Services are intended to assist individuals, couples, and families to become aware, cope, and improve functioning with emotional or behavioral distress.

             As a clinician over the years, I have been honored to work with a variety of age groups ranging between 5 to 65+ and in the following environments of inpatient/outpatient, substance use treatment, crisis stabilization, incarceration, primary care, women's clinic, family clinic, and a hospice care facility.  Within these environments I have gained the experience, knowledge, and training.

      I have conducted sessions, assessments, and psychological evaluations on the basis of need for treatment/admission process, diagnostic criteria, safety-risk/planning, recommendations/considerations for other services; ie. medical or psychological, ongoing functionality, implementation of clinical interventions/behavioral modifications, medication enforcement, forensic/competency, sexual assault/harassment, and other court proceedings. 

             I have also served as a Field Supervisor for Kennesaw State University Academic Year
