My name is Ali and I am a local to the north Atlanta area. I grew up in Forsyth county before moving to LaGrange for college at LaGrange College. I graduated with Bachelor of Science degrees in Psychology and Sociology from LaGrange College and a Master of Science degree in Clinical Mental Health Counseling from Mercer University.

I have considerable experience working in substance abuse treatment centers. This experience has given me the opportunity to help my clients navigate a multitude of issues.

The decision to start therapy can be a difficult one and I commend you for the strength you are showing by being here today. I would love to have the opportunity to walk with you through this experience and any other difficult times.

I am very passionate about helping adults who are in recovery from substance use disorders. Whether you are at the beginning of your recovery exploration or have been in recovery for years, I can offer support that fits where you are in your individual recovery.

As a therapist, my approach is about building a trusting and safe relationship where you can be comfortable to discuss all topics. I am dedicated to help you build the coping skills you need to help you achieve your goals.
