I believe therapy is a journey of self exploration. Mental health experiences, family distress, and substance use can change a persons relationship with themselves. Returning to strength and connecting with the universal birthright of dignity, value, and safety is possible.
Clients working with me report feeling empowered and finding insight. Recovering holistically, understanding that behavior is often a symptom, or adaptation to an environment is built into my work. I invite clients to join me in creating treatment goals for themselves and enjoy the safety and comfort that can result from honest, direct, and thorough work.
I am an Atlanta native currently residing and practicing in Western North Carolina. My experience includes working in substance use treatment settings with adolescents, families, young adults, and queer identifying people. Our process will begin with a consultation where I invite you to get to know me and share information about yourself.
