Announcement icon During public health distancing guidelines, I am exclusively offering secure telehealth (phone and video) services to NC residents.
…Waitlist only at this time… I help clients walk the pathway back to emotional well-being and secure relationships, all while feeling supported and affirmed. With my training and 15+ years of experience, I provide state of the art therapy for couples, individuals and families, individually tailored to the situations and needs of clients, as well as supervise many other clinicians internationally. Depression, loneliness, divorce, frustration and despair isn't inevitable. Security with yourself and stable relationships with others are possible with help.
Therapy is mostly a corrective helping relationship, but technical training is equally important. I am certified in Emotionally Focused Therapy and Discernment Counseling, and have advanced training in Accelerated Experiential Dynamic Psychotherapy. I continually participate in study, supervision and Deliberate Practice.
I guide clients to health and resolution, and I don't give up hope that relationships and our emotional lives can be more satisfying and stable. Whether serving couples, families or individuals, I provide a warm, engaged, and validating therapy experience that builds understanding and security for self and others.
