Your pain is real, even if you can’t explain it. You are not invisible! You have an invisible chronic illness . Are you suffering in silence with stress, anxiety, grief, self-esteem issues, exhaustion and so much more? Is your relationship impacted by chronic illness or grief and loss? You need a safe space to express your thoughts and feelings without feeling judged. Maybe you've lost a loved one to death, life circumstances, chronic illness or a life you planned, but that never manifested? You're angry, hurt, feel lost and struggling to get through a day. You don't have to. This is not the end. There is hope on the other side.

It may be difficult to find a therapist who is well versed in being sex positive, kink friendly, non-monogamous allied, and informed on chronic illnesses. These unique relationships require experience from someone who is passionate about them! You may need help with your multiple relationships, your relationship structure, or just someone to talk to who will not wince when your sex life is brought up. You may be struggling with a recent diagnosis of a chronic illness and want to talk with someone about it who understands the gravity a chronic illness diagnosis can bring. I love for clients to educate me on their lived experiences!

I've been in the endometriosis, infertility, pregnancy loss and chronic illness communities for over a decade.
Endometriosis, infertility, and other reproductive and chronic health challenges, are not only physically taxing, but they also can impact an individual's emotional, vocational and social wellbeing. Those struggling need a place where they can share their stressors and anxiety, where they can grieve the losses they have experienced, and where they can gain more tools to manage what they are juggling and start to find a way to thrive.

Who do I work with? I’m glad you asked, I work with people ages 17+, suffering from chronic illness /pain, depression, anxiety, mood disorders, and school/work/life/family stressors.
Hi all! Thanks for stopping by! What is therapy? Therapy is the process of having conversations with someone who is removed from your "inner circle," so you don't have to worry about a therapist "sharing your business" with others, or judging you. My goal is to make you feel seen, heard, supported, and validated. Together we will process through different emotions and find ways to help manage them, learn how to practice self care/love, and work on your own personal goals for growth! I strive to create a very open, comfortable, non judgmental, compassionate, and honest working relationship with everyone.

What so many of us are craving lately is peace. Our hearts, bodies and souls are carrying so much. We’re worried and weary. Maybe that’s what brought you here. You need help navigating uncertainty and change in your life--whether it's trauma, chronic illness , loss or anxiety. Sometimes we need someone to help guide us through these seasons of life and discover our inner wisdom to grow, heal and thrive again--not just survive. I’m here to help you find your way. To move through and heal from our pain, we need tools to feel grounded, to feel our feelings instead of run from them, and to develop a deeper relationship with ourselves.

My practice focuses on supporting individuals who are dealing with transition, life evaluation, chronic illness , loss and change. I have had the privilege of working with individuals who are dealing with caring for both children and aging parents, caring for a spouse or loved one or grieving the loss of an individual or relationship. I have also found that families benefit from dialogue regarding changes in roles within the family system as members get older and more/less dependent. Additionally, some of my clients come to counseling to work through the age old question of "What am I doing with my life?".

Every child yearns to be seen, heard, and understood. My goal with our time is that your child feels more connected with their inner world and more confident in speaking for their needs. My style of counseling is particularly effective with children experiencing worries and having a hard time self-regulating and/or listening to their body. I want to support you (the care-taker) and your little one. Through our relationship, communication will improve, self-esteem will boost, we will practice mindfulness and autonomy, and problem solving. I have a specialty in building emotional intelligence in children with autoimmune disorders.

Sapphire Health Psychology is for people who are experiencing chronic pain (including medically unexplained pain), serious illness, or weight management challenges who have exhausted traditional avenues for healing with little or no success. We explore these challenges from an angle that challenges the status quo. We see symptoms as signals for change, recognize patterns that are hindering healing, and believe that healing is possible.

I am trained as a medical family therapist and enjoy working with individuals, couples, and families. Clients dealing with relationship issues, current and/or past family conflict, chronic / invisible illness, immune / autoimmune / sleep disorders, adjusting to new diagnoses, caregiver fatigue, and having to work when you are ill or grieving tend to find my approach both different and helpful. I have experienced these issues myself and am familiar with the challenges they create in our personal and professional lives. I focus on helping clients cope with these difficulties in the context of our most valued relationships.

What type of Downtown, Charlotte 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 Downtown, Charlotte?

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.
