Things aren't working well for you. You're holding it together, but barely. It feels like everyone's needs are greater than yours, and you wonder whether it's really that bad. Maybe life looks like you intended it to, but you aren't sure why it doesn't feel like the right fit. You feel disconnected and overwhelmed. In your relationship, you know that things aren't working. You try, but you can't seem to make them understand what you need. You want to find your way back to the time when things worked.

Throughout my clinical work, I have found that one of the most difficult steps in therapy is scheduling and attending the first appointment. My aim is to reward that courage by collaboratively working with clients towards reaching their goals. My method is an individualized approach and is couched within a cognitive behavioral and interpersonal framework. I was trained as a generalist in clinical psychology working with a wide array of issues ranging from stress management and life transitions to more severe concerns such as trauma. I specialize in working with LGBQ/TGNC/Non-Binary adults in individual and group therapy.

At times, it can be difficult to feel in control, stay motivated, and find fulfillment despite all the pressures from our society and those we develop for ourselves. We arrive at more trying moments at different points in life, and all meet these challenges with unique experiences, beliefs, circumstances, and minds. Many of us are struggling with depression, anxiety, stress, confusion about goals for our future, low self-esteem, body image issues, and relationship difficulties. An effort to deal with one obstacle can lead to developing habits and ways of coping that create new difficulties in another area.

I am a licensed clinical psychologist who has been helping people in the Charlotte area make essential changes in their lives for 21years. I believe that a frank and gentle approach which values the therapeutic relationship is the key to facilitate individual change. My approach is an active one in which I work with the client to find resources and experiences that create a sense of hope within. I have two major areas of focus: life span issues in adults; adjustment problems in children and adolescents. With each group I cultivate a sense of humor and an ability to play as part of my therapy.

You may be caring for your elderly parents, or amidst a transition that leaves you depleted. You hear of others trying therapy and wonder if this could possibly help. All around you, you see people finding love, traveling, making new friends and having an easy time balancing all their responsibilities. Meanwhile, you find yourself simply "surviving day by day" and not seeing the light at the end of the tunnel. Sound familiar?

Using a holistic approach, I offer talk therapy in conjunction with meditation and relaxation practices and the option of adding sound healing and energy work as an adjunct to therapy. These methods allow one’s full range of emotions, unresolved traumas, and unconscious core beliefs to rise into consciousness. Once these experiences are permitted to surface and reintegrate in a safe, caring environment, my clients are then able to more consciously work in and outside of sessions to bring increased self-acceptance and self-compassion to their lived moment-to-moment experience. I work with the whole person, not just the mind.

My specialty is working with individuals impacted by addiction. My passion is working with the family members and friends of those addicted, which ranges from children to adults. Areas of focus with children and teens include but are not limited to behavioral changes, negative coping skills, and unhealthy habit patterns. With adults, my focus is on familial strain, adaptation to new ways of living and transition, navigating relationships, and parenting during active or inactive addiction
