I have over 20 years experience in helping adults/healthcare practitioners with addictions/relapse/ feeling "stuck" in their recovery, depression, anxiety, grief, compassion fatigue, shame, trauma, codependency, forgiveness and self acceptance .
We live in stressful, rapidly changing, disconnected times. People are feeling exhausted, lonely and isolated. Many are filled with negative self talk. I help people realize what has kept them stuck and unfulfilled. Together we will develop a plan to remove those barriers so they can become the person they were intended to be, that they WANT to be. So if you are tired of promising yourself that tomorrow will be different, let's begin your journey now. As Ernest Hemingway said, " Today is the only day in all the days that will ever be. But what will happen in all the other days that ever come will depend on what you do today."

My approach integrates various modalities such as cognitive-behavioral therapy, motivational interviewing, acceptance and commitment therapy, and supportive therapy.
I enjoy working with adults who are experiencing problems related to anxiety, depression, problematic substance use, adjustment and life transitions, interpersonal strain, and self-esteem. I might be a good fit for you if your substance use isn't working for you any longer and you're considering making some changes, you're in the middle of a tough life transition and feel lost, or your negative self-talk has taken over and is robbing you of satisfaction and joy.

With adults, I primarily use ACT ( Acceptance and Commitment Therapy) to help clients realize their passions and find emotional freedom.
Life is complicated. Often the difficulties and stress we face create conflict and struggles that need to be shared with others. Through counseling, I believe that clients can find relief from the stress and pain of broken relationships, addiction, past traumas and unidentified emotional and spiritual wounds. I enjoy working with adoptees, adoptive parents, adolescents, and young adults and people in transition. I work collaboratively with clients to help them find peace and rest in the midst of daily life.

I use a strengths-based, solution-focused approach through a multicultural framework while incorporating Acceptance and Commitment therapy ( ACT ) and Cognitive Behavioral therapy (CBT).
Adjusting to young adulthood can present many with new challenges; "Adulting" represents freedom at best; and overwhelming at worst. My role as a therapist is to walk with you along this pebbled path, and provide a safe space to build resiliency so you can move towards what you truly value. As a Licensed Master's level Psychologist (LPA), I specialize in therapy for anxiety, eating disorders, self-esteem, body-image concerns as well as those dealing with adjustment to college and/or life transitions, finding work/life balance, and support for enhancing communication/interpersonal skills.

CBT with ACT , along with Adlerian, some DBT, and Reality Therapy.
Psychology is a science and an art. I see therapy through the same lens. As specific as the brain can be there also has to be some flexibility to really understand how someone thinks. I worked in psychology research for 10 years and have been a therapist for 6 years. I am a National Certified Counselor and will be finishing my PhD in 2023. Most of my research and focus in therapy is centered around women’s issues and the ups and downs that can come with being a female.

My intent is to foster acceptance , values and mindful awareness for a diverse clientele.
My passion is to work with those who have struggled with the challenges of life; trauma, addiction, relationship issues, mood disorders, grief, attachment, career issues or any stress contributing to anxiety. They may have sought therapy in the past and have become discouraged, for whatever reason. The foundation of therapy is the therapeutic alliance. When one suffers various disorders, life becomes dull and motivation to live according to one's values instead of one's fears is threatened. It is critical that the therapist be attuned to the worldview of the client to facilitate healing, self acceptance and self compassion.

Greetings! I like to tell new clients "I could be sitting where you are". Respect and acceptance are vital to a successful counseling experience. Once any crisis has been managed, I work with clients to explore the various elements that effect their personal well-being: physical health, work/life experiences, family history, and belief systems. We can feel overwhelmed and helpless, and it takes courage to look inward at a time when we're feeling so vulnerable. But I believe that hope and strength grow from a compassionate understanding of the self. I invite you to make sense of how you got here and what may be next.

You come to therapy to face hard truths in your life and learn better ways to handle them. Maybe you find yourself repeating the same patterns, having the same interactions, or feeling a certain way about yourself. I balance truth and tact, giving genuine feedback. I have over 20 years of experience helping adults overcome depression, anxiety, and life stress. Sometimes you're depressed & sometimes your life is depressing-usually it's some of both. I address both, helping you change the way you think, act , & feel, while also looking at your whole life situation, environment, lifestyle, friends & stressors.

Acceptance and Commitment (ACT) Therapists
Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT) is a type of psychotherapy that helps you accept the difficulties that come with life. ACT is a form of mindfulness based therapy, theorizing that greater well-being can be attained by overcoming negative thoughts and feelings. Essentially, ACT looks at your character traits and behaviors to assist you in reducing avoidant coping styles. ACT also addresses your commitment to making changes, and what to do about it when you can't stick to your goals.

If you're looking for ACT therapy in Charlotte or for a Charlotte ACT therapist these professionals provide acceptance and commitment therapy, ACT group therapy, ACT therapy, and acceptance commitment therapy. They include ACT therapists, ACT psychologists, ACT psychotherapists and ACT counselors.
