Clear, Resolve, Transform. I help clients discover and resolve subconscious causes for emotionaI and behavioral difficulties. The Subconscious controls emotions, desires, memory, habits, thoughts, dreams, and automatic responses. One may consciously understand the value of eliminating problematic emotions, thoughts or behaviors but unless the Subconscious Mind is reached, enduring change is unlikely. I address the underlying subconscious blocks to living a clear and free life. I have effectively treated sexual abuse, trauma, grief, anxiety, depression, phobias, addictions and more. Issues are cleared, clients report being able to function with more energy and clarity. Relationships thrive and lives are transformed.

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.

My clients are adults experiencing challenges with addiction, anxiety, mood disorders, life transitions, trauma, grief and loss. I believe deep listening can be an antidote to the impersonality of our increasingly busy world. My therapy style is collaborative and strengths-based, helping people tap into their inner wisdom and resources. I am generally fascinated by people - their stories, challenges, interests, hopes, loves, struggles, and goals. I particularly enjoy helping people discover and change patterns that are no longer useful, uncover neglected parts of themselves, and grow into the successful people they mean to be.

Women feel deeply, love deeply, and hurt deeply. We just do. Even with experiences like grief, trauma and relationship problems women sometimes go years before seeking help. We blame ourselves for how lost we think we are - or for our "brokenness." This is sadly normal but it's not true! That's why you might be seeking a therapist now, to get to the root of why life is feeling painful, possibly unmanageable. You want to uncover what hurts, improve relationships/communication skills and move more confidently in the world!

You've felt depressed and anxious for as long as you can remember. It's felt difficult to connect with others. Relationships feel challenging. Anger comes out quick but it's masking other feelings.

I believe that we live in challenging times. 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.

A common misconception of counseling is that it is meant to "fix" an individual. More accurately, it is a catalyst for emotional stability, successful relationships, and satisfaction in life. Counseling is meant to build upon one's existing strengths resulting in the ability to manage stress in a healthier way. Often one's innate resiliency is overlooked and problems are approached with the assumption of a deficiency or "illness." A more positive, strength based, approach leads to a more intentional life with a grounded presence.

I believe that every person has their own innate light to self-healing but may need some support along the way. I find it a great privilege to walk with clients on the personal journey of healing. I work especially well with children doing play therapy and art, teens facing anxiety, trauma, and/or adversity, adults with trauma and/or anxiety ,and those who just don't quite fit cultural norms.
