You’re no stranger to achievement. You graduated near the top of your class, carved out a successful career for yourself, and continue to kill it in your professional life. Problem is, when you feel so anxious and unsure of yourself, it’s hard to enjoy the life you’ve worked so hard to create. You struggle to build meaningful relationships because you can never relax enough to be the real you around others. Your work suffers because you’re constantly worrying that others are secretly judging you. And though you’ve practically perfected the art of hiding your distress from others, it leaves you feeling utterly exhausted and alone.

Licensed Clinical Mental Health Counselor, LCMHC, NCC
My mission is to make therapy fun and interactive. I don't necessarily have an ideal client, just an ideal match. If the client feels connected and hopeful, change and progress can occur. I utilize a variety of modalities, catering each one to the individual client. I believe that clients need to feel supported in their family and social environment, and therefore combine family systems and family therapy into the goals of treatment. I myself am ADHD and can relate to children and adults who struggle academically and socially, incorporating a holistic approach to the therapeutic relationship.
Every now and then, we are faced with challenges that are difficult to handle on our own. Sometimes these can be very overwhelming and feelings of loneliness, confusion or depression enter into our lives. If this is you, and talking with your spouse, friend or family member isn't getting you where you'd like to be, it might be time to give therapy a try. I conduct therapy in a manner that enables you to understand present patterns, identify and remove constraints, and achieve better functioning and enhanced growth.
I earned my masters in counseling from the University of New Orleans in 1987. I earned my masters in social work from the University of South Carolina in 1994. I have worked for over 12 years as a clinical therapist/professional counselor. My clinical and counseling experiences have been in a variety of settings to include private practice, mental health agencies, foster care, department of social services and community outreach. I have had the opportunity to work with children 11+, teens and adults. I believe that therapy has the ability to promote hope, growth and change.
"The truth is that our finest moments are most likely to occur when we are feeling deeply uncomfortable, unhappy, or unfulfilled. For it is only in such moments, propelled by our discomfort, that we are likely to step out of our ruts and start searching for different ways and truer answers." (M. Scott Peck)
With over 20 years experience treating a variety of issues (depression, anxiety, grief/loss, relationship concerns, trauma from abuse or life events) I am committed to helping clients bring meaningful positive changes to their lives...to aid them in their search 'for different ways and truer answers'.

Board Certified in Clinical Social Work, I'm a psychotherapist in private practice, specializing and certified in two main methodologies: 1) EMDR THERAPY for adults with adverse life experiences, emotional trauma or P.T.S.D. (Post Traumatic Stress Disorder); and 2) IMAGO RELATIONSHIP THERAPY for couples. I've had lots of training in treating sexual abuse, as well as substance abuse. I'm also a Certified EMDRIA Consultant.
As a psychologist, I work collaboratively with individuals ages 18+ to help them explore what has led to current life difficulties and to work toward the changes they desire. I am a generalist in that I work with many different presenting issues from relationship difficulties to anxiety and depression. However, I have developed particular interest in working with trauma, adult survivors of childhood abuse, cancer issues, spiritual concerns, and with people with intuitive and empathic gifts. I take an integrative approach to my work drawing heavily on interpersonal, psychodynamic and mindfulness -based cognitive therapy models.

Feeling overwhelmed or dissatisfied with your life? If you have experienced trauma, whether recurring or as an isolated incident, sometimes the typical stresses of a normal day can provoke anxiety, fear, anger, or withdrawal. Therapy can give you the tools to deal with life's challenges and can enable you to minimize your stress levels while continuing your personal growth. I support you in exploring ways to increase happiness and well-being while you integrate lasting, positive changes in your relationships with others, and most importantly, with yourself.
I realize life sometimes seems disappointing, chaotic, and draining, causing people to feel as if they are completely losing control. However, in therapy they will find a place to slow down, process, and address issues to regain a sense of hope and peace. My hope is that your motivation, and our collaboration opens the door for us to work towards a greater you.
