Adolescence to early adulthood can be a confusing and overwhelming time in a person’s development, but it’s a time with potential for powerful growth and healing. Your teen or young adult may be navigating sexual and gender preferences, peer relationships, and school responsibilities. They may be suffering from discrimination or bullying. Often these experiences can erupt in an array of struggles– anxiety, depression, gender dysphoria, anger, isolation, body image issues, or lack of focus. You want your kid to feel comfortable in their own skin; to learn ways to accept themselves and to thrive on whatever path they choose.

Connection to ourselves and our true nature unlocks the door to an empowered and meaningful life. Unfortunately, most of us have had the experience of feeling woefully disconnected from our bodies, our emotions, our purpose, and subsequently from other important people in our lives. I want to be a guide on your journey, helping you reconnect to who you are and to assist you in moving forward from a place of intention and empowerment. Connection to your body is a way through, and I can help you learn to trust and decipher your body’s wise messages, release what’s not serving you, and let the healing happen.

Finding a therapist with whom you feel comfortable and safe can be a challenge. I listen attentively and non-judgmentally to carefully understand the difficulty you are experiencing, and help cultivate a deeper understanding of yourself and the origin of your depleting, recurring problems. Understanding how past experiences influence your current difficulties is an important aspect of psychotherapy. I strive to offer meaningful and practical suggestions for change, which can lead to freedom from feeling stuck, and a much deeper enjoyment of life and relationships.

Life can be overwhelming sometimes, but that doesn’t mean YOU have to feel overwhelmed. Do you want to find a balance between work, family, and taking time for yourself? Are you feeling high stress, anxious, or panic attacks more frequently that it is becoming your new normal? Do you find yourself mindlessly scrolling through your phone and feeling weighed down by daily tasks? Maybe you are tired of feeling tired and ready for a change, but don’t know where to start. You deserve to be more compassionate to yourself and manage life without suffering!

I believe the roots of therapy are in building the therapeutic relationship in order for healing to happen. My approach is always from a place of compassion and non-judgement, while creating an open-minded and brave space for people to really do the work. I seek to help individuals dive into the core of what’s creating their reality – this can stem from trauma amongst many other things but we will work together in a curious and loving way to find root causes. It is my passion to help guide and support you through the journey of the human condition.

Hello and welcome! I’m a queer therapist with over a decade of experience treating and teaching about trauma. I am direct (no more “nod and smile” therapist stereotype!). I am loving. And I believe active listening involves more than asking "...and how does that make you feel?" I use transparency in my approach, because I believe this allows for the most effective exploration of oneself in relationship to others. I offer individual therapy rooted in attachment and polyvagal theories to curious, compassionate adults who are motivated to heal.

To move through suffering and risk hope of something better takes such courage. My work finds its foundation in a deep respect for that choice. I meet my clients’ courage by welcoming all parts of them- their overwhelm, strengths, grief, hopes, and fears. That welcoming manifests in my curiosity, care, and genuine empathy for your experience. My grounded presence, calm yet playful demeanor, clarity of thought, and feedback-informed approach have helped folks safely share their inner world. That safety can be deeply healing, and through it I've witnessed my clients move from simply surviving to living a life of vitality and meaning.

Getting to a better state of BEING; feeling good about yourself and your life. If you are serious about finding clarity about yourself and your life, stopping negative patterns/emotions, replacing that with joy and wisdom about who you are, we would be a good " fit". Whether you are wanting to get OUT of an emotional place of darkness.. feeling without hope, or if you are wanting to take your life to a improved level of fulfillment and meaning....I can provide the direction of light that can show you the way there. NOTE: During this time of health crisis, I do provide phone or internet sessions if you'd rather stay at home.

Hi! I'm so happy you're here. Do you feel anxious, never enough, fearful, and untrusting, maybe never knowing what to expect? Do you experience strong feelings of personal responsibility for the actions and feelings of others and/or worry that others will unpredictably turn on you? Do you give a lot of yourself and end up feeling depleted? You deserve relationships and a life that bring out the best in you, not the stress in you! As an experienced therapist, I can help you learn to trust others, develop a more empowered sense of self, learn to say no, express appropriate boundaries, and explore your OWN wants and feelings.

I am committed to creating a safe, non-judgmental space for my clients. I see my role as helping people identify self-limiting beliefs, emotional blocks and other barriers that keep them from leading lives consistent with their authentic selves and their values. I combine theoretical and psychological insights with more pragmatic skills training (relaxation, conflict-resolution, communication skills). I have an active, direct counseling style that combines genuine empathic listening with therapeutic challenges.

I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker and Registered Play Therapist and have been providing therapy services to children and families in the Asheville area since 2005. My work with children is an integration of person-centered and strengths based perspectives. I use both non-directive and Cognitive Behavioral based play therapy as well as expressive arts to offer children a voice in their struggle to express themselves and identify and process their feelings in a safe space. I believe that "radical acceptance" and a strong trusting relationship are key in helping children and heal and grow.

To navigate between locations within the same country, enter a new city or zip code into the search bar.

Learn more about how to find a therapist.

Is online therapy a good option?

Therapy conducted online can be just as effective as in-person therapy, as long as there is a strong alliance between the client and the therapist. To find a therapist who provides telehealth services to clients in your area, click “Online Therapy” on the directory homepage and search by your city or town or your zip code.

What’s the difference between a psychologist, a therapist, and a counselor?

Therapists, psychologists, and counselors are all licensed mental health professionals. In the US, psychologists have earned a doctoral degree. The terms “therapist” and “counselor” are used somewhat interchangeably, but generally therapists offer longer-term, mental health care, while counselors offer shorter-term care that may focus on one domain, such as marriage, career, or academic challenges.

What type of therapist is right for me?

Clients should consider factors such as insurance coverage and their primary reason(s) for seeking therapy to determine the type of professional best suited to their needs. Someone struggling with mental health challenges such as depression or anxiety, for example, may wish to seek out a clinical psychologist or therapist, while someone navigating career obstacles or marital upheaval may benefit from seeing a counselor who can offer short-term, targeted support.

Is everyone in the Psychology Today Therapy Directory a licensed therapist?

The Psychology Today directory lists providers who offer legitimate mental health services to the public, including psychologists, psychiatrists, social workers, and counselors. Many have been licensed by the country or state where they practice; providers whose license or primary credential has been verified by Psychology Today are signified by a “Verified” symbol. Some clinicians or organizations provide services for which their state or country does not offer licenses, such as pastoral counseling. They may be selectively included without the “Verified” seal.

What type of therapy is right for me?

The type of therapy best suited to a particular individual depends on several factors, including their primary reason for seeking therapy, their preferred timeline (some therapy types last for a set number of sessions, while others are open-ended), and their personality and preferences—some may prefer a more structured approach. For many individuals, multiple types of therapy could provide a good fit.

Is online therapy cheaper than in-person therapy?

Many therapists charge the same amount for online therapy as they do for in-person therapy—though clients may still find this cost-effective if it cuts down on their transportation costs. Health insurance plans often offer equivalent coverage for online and in-person therapy; indeed, in many places, they are legally required to do so. Text-based or on-demand therapy apps may be cheaper than traditional one-on-one psychotherapy; however, the practice may be less effective and is not likely to be covered by insurance.
