"Hearing from the heart and seeking help with paralyzing personal challenges can be a daunting experience. Finding someone to connect with in the process of personal healing is half the battle to a solution. Keeping the person at the center of the therapeutic process is a goal for me. I have employed this approach for over 16 years of practice in Western NC. While this majestic mountain setting is a place of unique beauty it is not free of personal challenges that may need a calm and skilled approach to navigating life' s challenges."

"As a licensed psychologist, I consider it my responsibility to help my clients become unstuck from particularly difficult circumstances and have the courage and self-compassion to make changes in their lives. To this end, I primarily use behavioral treatments that strongly emphasize acceptance of one's current experience, the development of mindfulness, and dedication to one's values. I also frequently use biofeedback and neurofeedback (including ultra low frequency training) as methods to help relax and stabilize physiology."

Many people find it difficult to feel confident and self assured, have peaceful, fulfilling relationships, navigate the demands of finances, family, work and home, and also focus on nourishing self care. These challenges are interconnected. They are related to how we have developed our sense of self in the context of family expectations and experiences, societal demands, cultural assumptions, and media influence. It is necessary for all of us to learn how to live our best lives in these particular circumstances. You are not alone."
