Therapy can be about reflection, growth, self-discovery, problem-solving, or any combination of these experiences. At its core, therapy is about honesty: being more honest with yourself and others, and learning how to live your life in a way that honors your true self. You are smart and capable, but perhaps you are experiencing a struggle that has left you feeling lost, confused or stuck. You may be seeking a safe place to talk about what you’re going through and find a way to heal. As a therapist, I believe that you are the expert on yourself, not me.

Life can be tough. You had expectations of what you thought life would be. What you thought it would be like to perhaps be a mother, to raise a child, and to connect with your family. You imagined it, maybe even dreamed about it. However now you find that living it is not what you expected. Or perhaps not as fulfilling as you had imagined and hoped for. You feel disconnected, and maybe even guilty or frustrated.

Have you been experiencing pain that interferes with your daily functioning, feeling like you have to put on a brave face to get by, but suffering inside? Are you a young adult who previously led a vibrant, active life, now struggling to adjust to a diagnosis and figure out what that means for your present and future? Do you struggle with patterns of thoughts and emotions that heighten your pain and leave you feeling hopeless about ever escaping this cycle? Maybe you are starting to consider that traumatic events in the past have contributed to your current experience of pain and suffering.

The world feels different and so do you. At times it can feel hard to put words to the experience you are having but what you do know is that you feel far from okay. Even if you had the words to describe it, you fear that others might not understand. You know that something's gotta give but you don’t even know where to start. The good news is, if you are sitting here and reading this, you’ve already started. Take a deep breathe, but actually, like a really really deep breathe, and sit in that for just a moment. Wherever you decide to go from here, you don’t have to go it alone.

I am passionate about helping those who want to make change and are struggling with the motivation to do so. I love supporting humans who have always had it all together and now need support. I believe both counseling and healing are full-person activities surrounding the mind, the body, and the spirit. I believe different things will work for different people. I approach and meet every client where they are and may use motivational interviewing, cognitive-behavioral therapy, solution-focused therapy, or client-centered therapy. I enjoy working with young adults struggling with anxiety, depression, substance use, grief and trauma.

I work with men and women who are tired of struggling with painful emotions. People I help often arrive with the feeling that something is missing. Maybe years of trying to cope have led to a sense of despair. Many have a sense that today's struggle comes from yesterday's traumas. The question remains: how to break free? Patients want to get on with living a values driven life, free from the effort to battle painful emotions. I help people discover a direction and a connection with their own values to get on with living the life they choose.

I believe that you bring wisdom to the places of disorientation in your life. As a spiritually-integrated psychotherapist, my role is to help you nurture the conditions where you can reconnect with this wisdom. The primary condition for this reconnection is an authentic relationship with another person. At its best, therapy can help deepen self-awareness, awaken self-compassion, and broaden your capacity for meaningful relationships. My practice resonates for contemplative persons seeking an active partner in the work of reconnection and re-creation.

When people reach out to me, it’s often because they want something in their lives to be different. Maybe they feel unhappy in their relationships. Maybe they are discouraged about dating. Maybe they feel unfulfilled at work. Maybe being a parent is stressing them out. Maybe they are grieving the loss of someone close to them–and yes, this includes pets! Maybe they think they might be drinking too much. Maybe they are under financial stress. Maybe their family is driving them crazy. Maybe it’s none of the above and they still find themselves here, exploring options because something in their life just isn’t quite right.

If you’ve found your way to this site (and, let’s be real…if you’re a human being), I know life has handed you or your child many stressors and challenges and you/they are likely experiencing strong or even overwhelming emotions - perhaps anxiety, sadness, outbursts or numbing, low self-worth. I believe many of our common difficulties stem from experiences of disconnection - with ourselves, others, and the natural world - and that what most of us are seeking is a path toward belonging, joy, a sense of calm, and meaning. These gifts of life grow when we connect deeply, inward & outward, and immerse ourselves in the world around us.

My purpose, my passion, and my plan is to serve marginalized communities in addressing and dismantling the long-term impacts of systemic racism and oppression. As a therapist and servant leader, I find fulfillment in working with individuals to navigate complex trauma, grief, anxiety, depression, and life transitions. As a society, we are struggling to cope with the uncertainty of tomorrow. Together, we can understand and explore the benefits in learning to operate from our value systems and not our circumstances.

We live in a world that is constantly telling us we aren't good enough. Not pretty enough, not smart enough, not a good enough partner, not productive enough, not thin enough, too emotional, too needy... The list goes on. It's easy to find ourselves in relationships, too, that leave us feeling these ways: not enough, or too much altogether. My clients are often questioning the health of their relationships, or are trying to figure out what life looks after it ended. They’re ready to feel better about themselves and rebuild their confidence.

I work with women who don't want to feel stuck anymore. Women who want to find their life's purpose, live within their values, successfully navigate big life events, and/ or manage unexpected losses or traumas. Women who want help tuning into their inner wisdom, and charting a path forward. I help women process and move past traumas, anxieties, fears, and negative beliefs that are holding them back. The majority of my work has been with mothers, career women, and survivors of sexual violence. I also provide clinical supervision to counselors.

What type of Asheville mental health professional is right for me?
While most types of therapy have a lot in common, they also fall into clusters that share core features, such as cognitive therapies or psychodynamic approaches. It is important to seek someone who practices evidence-based therapy, meaning one or more forms of treatment that have been scientifically evaluated and tested, and demonstrate consistent improvement for a majority of patients.

If you are unsure about choosing the right therapist, it might be useful to first learn more about therapy types and modalities.
How to find a therapist in Asheville?
When looking to find a therapist, it is certainly important to consider training and credentials. Studies also indicate that the therapeutic alliance, or the relationship the client develops with the therapist, is an important factor in their ability to work together to achieve the client’s goals.

What method of therapy is right for me?
When it comes to treatment methods, there's no 'right way.’ Each method of therapy can be beneficial for a variety of issues. Finding a psychologist or therapist who is a good fit for you is the most important step to discovering what type of therapy, or combination of therapeutic approaches, will meet your individual needs. Learn what to expect from different types of therapy and how they work.

How to use my insurance?
Understanding cost and insurance coverage is an important concern for many people. With some basic research and conversations with prospective therapists, you should be able to have a good understanding of the best way to afford therapy.
