About

My practice is currently full. Please check back. --For decades, I've helped people of all kinds in a variety of life challenges. Through relational therapy, applying complementary therapeutic approaches such as CBT, my goal is to help YOU uncover your true potential and power to live a life you enjoy. Do you doubt that is possible? Therapy may consist of practicing skills related to social and emotional learning; learning how your thoughts effect everything, uncovering and navigating the life stories and perhaps telling those stories over and over, of depression, trauma, anxiety, loss, and stress. Want to try?
Individual (child, teen, adult, seniors), couples and family counseling. Treatment specialization includes: Therapy for Depression, Anxiety, Stress and Mood Challenges Cognitive Behavioral Therapy for understanding how your thoughts impact your life Grief and Bereavement Guidance Parenting Coach Existential and Spiritual Crisis ADHD Coaching Navigating Chronic, Disabling and Terminal Illness
My location is easily accessed from I 40, between Chapel Hill and Durham. I am open, informal, respectful of YOUR life, experienced, creative, deeply influenced by art, thinkers, beauty, and the ever shifting journey of life. I am LGBTQ affirming and open to all faiths (including none), genders and races.
