About

Empathic. Easygoing. Humorist. You create happiness for others, but you struggle to find your own bliss. The mask of being the happy-go-lucky friend is tiring. It's beginning to wear you down. You're always expected to bring the jokes. But, it feels like your pain is fake & not worthy of being heard. Putting the dark humor & sarcasm aside can be foreign and painful when you're so used to always bringing the wit to the table. You deserve to give yourself permission to prioritize your needs & set boundaries. Now is the time to heal the pain you've been avoiding. I will help you find joy again with some laughs along the way.
I specialize in working with people who feel invisible or misunderstood from others and have a tendency to use humor to coverup the pain they're feeling. I will provide a space where you can be seen. Let's let down the wall between the true you & the version that is shown to the world. You will learn how to balance the laughs and still be seen for you.
You haven't let them see the other side to the jokester, but I'm here to remind you that all of you is worthy of being seen & loved. Email or call me TODAY; let's work together. I am offering online counseling and in-person sessions in Charlotte, NC.
