For decades, I've helped people find new paths through their life challenges. By developing a deep client relationship, applying complementary therapeutic approaches, 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 and learning how your beliefs about life effect everything. Uncovering and navigating your life stories - telling those stories over and over - of depression, trauma, anxiety, loss, and stress helps YOU figure out YOUR path. Want to try?
Individual, couples and family counseling. Treatment specialization targets: Anxiety/Stress, Mood Challenges, Cognitive Behavioral analysis, Mindfulness skill development, Grief and Bereavement Guide, Parenting Coach, Existential and Spiritual Crisis, Dementia Specialist, Aging Guide, Highly Sensitive Person allied, LGBTQIA allied. Natural Born Listener. :)
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 LGBTQIA affirming and open to all faiths (including none), genders and races. Highly Sensitive Person specialist.
