I am a North Carolina licensed professional counselor. I have over 14 years of experience providing therapy for adolescents and adults. Since I am currently only doing video counseling it will be important to consult with me briefly to determine if this will be a good fit for both us. I incorporate my training of mindfulness, Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT), and expressive therapy (art therapy) to help my clients in reducing anxiety and emotional distress, and thus improving understanding and self-awareness.

I think most psychological issues are related to our identity--growth, change, understanding, acceptance, etc. Whether you're young or old, unconscious attitudes, habitual behaviors, and basic character traits lead to interpersonal 'success' or 'failure'. I can help you to understand these basics. It's up to you to implement the interventions.

I have no idea what an "ideal client" is, other than one that shows up for what they need and has at least a spark of motivation. If I can't help fan that spark then I am probably not the best fit for that person. I am typically drawn to helping those that have experienced trauma or are experiencing a crisis, existential or otherwise. Their needs and goals are usually not the same thing. And, I've found most don't really know what they want, other than something different than what they are experiencing.
