I work from the idea that all of our life experiences are opportunities to discover ourselves. The road to peace, health, healing, purpose, meaning, and happiness is learning how to allow and be more of YOU, and less of who you think you should/ need to be. You and I will process your story, get to know your patterns, see what is getting in the way, and ultimately help you feel empowered and inspired.

During this time of Covid-19, teenagers and young adults are in more need of therapeutic support than ever. Issues such as school, seeing friends, dating, parents, gender identity, sexual orientation, substance use and being responsible can bring on feelings of anxiety, stress, confusion, fear, anger, shame and despair. I will be non-judgmental, supportive, empathetic, and tough-loving, and I'll ask you to be courageous, vulnerable and willing to do the work. Together we will create insights, change habits, laugh, confront fears and self-defeating choices, and strengthen new behaviors, your personal identity, and your relationships.

There are times in life when things can feel incredibly hard. Lingering sadness and anxiety can threaten to overwhelm us. Maybe it has been a long time since you remember feeling happy. Trauma and early adversity can take root in our bodies and impact every area of our life. We may also be relying on unhealthy behaviors to cope with our deep unease. If you find yourself feeling stuck in old patterns and are wanting to reclaim more happiness in your life, then therapy can help you find the change you are seeking. My intention is to create a safe, compassionate space to support your journey toward living your best life.

People often tell you that you are so strong and brave and appear to “have it all together” but inside that feels so far from reality. Do you have feelings of overwhelm or shame around if you are doing “it” right?- whatever “it” may be. Perhaps you feel guilty for spending too much time with the baby, or not enough time with the baby, or wanting time away from the baby. All of these are valid and deserve space to be said aloud. Maybe you feel worried all the time that something might go wrong. You have an inner voice that knows you want something to be different. You have the strength to create a life that is authentically yours.

*Accepting new clients* I view clients as whole people in the context of their lives - You are more than just a diagnosis. It's important to me to collaborate in setting goals, selecting an approach to therapy, and checking in along the way. I've worked with people from a broad range of backgrounds on anxiety, stress, relationships, life transition, depression, time management, and LGBTQ+ issues. I also provide relationship counseling for high-functioning couples who want to improve communication, feel more loved, work as a team instead of against each other, or just get unstuck from an old issue or pattern.

Are you tired of that voice in your head that’s telling you that you’re broken and crazy? Are you struggling to move forward after a toxic or controlling relationship? Have you ever felt betrayed, hurt, or taken advantage of by a loved one? You are not alone. Destructive, controlling relationships can leave us feeling disconnected from our friends, our families, and even ourselves. Left unaddressed, the lingering effects of past trauma can touch every area of our lives. But suffering is not a life sentence, and what is broken can be put back together even stronger, braver and more resilient than before.

Coping Skills Therapists
With coping skills or coping mechanisms, we learn to overcome issues like stress, depression, anger or anxiety.

Pro-active coping involves dealing with a problem by using constructive coping activities such as planning, confrontation, self-control and restraint. Overuse of coping mechanisms, like avoiding problems or working obsessively, can exasperate the weakness.

Emotion based coping skills reduce symptoms by addressing our feelings e.g. discussing the issues, distraction, relaxation, reframing or humor can all help. But negative coping mechanisms, which tend to be impulsive, like denial, projection, rationalization, repression or wishful thinking can make the underlying problem worse.

Some coping methods are more like bad habits than constructive life skills e.g. drinking and drugs. Other examples might include skin biting, nail biting or hair pulling (trichotillomania).

If you find it hard to cope or are having trouble coping, therapists in Asheville can help develop constructive coping skills for children, coping skills for kids and life coping skills.

If you're looking for help with coping skills in Asheville or for an Asheville coping skills therapist, these professionals provide coping strategies. They include Asheville coping skills therapists, coping skills psychologists, coping skills psychotherapists and coping skills counseling.

How can I tell if a therapist is right for me?
Therapists in Asheville are able to work with a wide range of issues and communities, including the BIPOC community in Asheville. They offer in person sessions as well as Teletherapy in Asheville
