I specialize in working with men and adolescent males (15+). If this is you, it is my goal to help you overcome the barriers and problems in your life that are keeping you from experiencing the freedom you are desiring. Often times, these problems are the result of trauma from childhood that is still unresolved. Difficulties that we experience early in life often stay with us into adulthood, creating a a myriad of problems including anxiety, PTSD, addiction (sexual, drug/alcohol, work), sexual abuse, depression, lack of self confidence, relationship issues, negative coping habits, physical or auto-immune disorders, & more.

If you are seeking to learn practical skills that can empower you to better manage your challenges in the short and long-term, my approach to therapy will be a good match.

You notice yourself trying to manage heightened anxiety or panic associated with uncertainty. Changes in your environment, social interactions, and other people’s moods feel overwhelming. You tune in quickly to other people's needs while navigating the experience of feeling sensitive, shy, or struggling with self-esteem. When too much is going on at once you recharge by withdrawing to a quiet place to have a sense of relief. You may identify as a highly creative and innovative person wondering, “How can I get above my self-doubt?”

I offer expressive and emotionally based therapies to children (ages 5 and older) a warm and nurturing environment which provides a safe space to do any healing they might need to do to move forward, to feel better about who they are, or share what might have happened in their lives that makes their heart ache. I help teens and young adults navigate the turbulence of hormones, and school work, friendships and home life, college and relationships, and all the other activities and significant events happening, while trying to discover who they are and what makes them feel most alive.

My orientation as a therapist is well suited for clients looking for deeper, clearer self-connection and awareness as well as the attuned, sensitive therapeutic relationship that supports this. My approach often includes the body's wisdom along with a kind of present moment, open and curious attention - mindfulness. Given enough safety, your awareness can relax and become less habitual, more rich and intuitive, as the session becomes a space for uncovering and revising the implicit learning and beliefs that hold you in place, including troubling patterns of thought related to past trauma, attachment wounding and addiction.

Adolescence and young adulthood are challenging times, full of growth and transition for individuals and families. I love supporting adolescents and emerging adults as they explore their identities and light their paths into adulthood. I am skilled at working with families through these transitional times, and also enjoy supporting couples in achieving healthy communication and partnership. My clinical experience runs the gamut from in-home work with court mandated youth, residential work with adolescent girls, and community-based outpatient therapy with high school students and kids in foster care.

I am still only seeing clients via tele-health. In a free first session we will discuss working together on-line. I use a combination of IFS (Internal Family Systems) and EMDR. IFS is an extraordinary therapy. In safe, gentle, respectful ways, IFS accesses and TRANSFORMS that which is the cause of your problems: your hidden and not-so-hidden fears, shame, anger, hurt… why you have negative thinking (I’m not good enough, things are not the way I want them to be), as well as the negative ways you may be acting (in anger, critical, impatient, abusing substances). I use a special on-line platform for EMDR which I am finding works well.

What type of Buncombe County 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 or psychologist, it might be useful to first learn more about therapy types and modalities.

How to find a therapist or counselor in Buncombe County?
When looking to find a therapist, start by considering 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.
