As a trauma specialist, I work with survivors of sexual abuse , rape, clergy sexual misconduct.
No two therapeutic journeys are alike. They reflect the unique interactions of the individuals involved in the process. Therapist and patient enter into a relationship through which, when things go well, "more" becomes possible: more life, more love, more play, more feelings, more thought, more choice, more reflection. Specializing in work with adult survivors of childhood & adolescent sexual abuse , I combine psychodynamic, developmental, and trauma perspectives. The past can truly become past and the present freed to become reflective of the genuine talents, hopes, yearnings of the person with whom I journey.

My specialities include Trauma Informed Counseling, Sexual Abuse , Military Counseling, LGBTQIA concerns, Anxiety, Depression, ADHD, as well as, every day stressors.
I can provide a safe space where clients can explore thoughts, emotions, and behaviors freely. Regardless of cultural background or personal lifestyles, all are welcomed to explore themselves, their needs, their goals, and any concerns they may have, through a relaxed and nonjudgmental therapeutic experience. I aim to encourage, highlight, and empower those who seek clarity through difficult situations or when life appears most murky.

Trauma; Sexual Abuse ; Grief; Anxiety.
Every one has come face to face with the fear of failure, or defeat. The fear that says we aren't good enough. We have been trained either we win or we lose, there are no other options. I challenge you to see the line between and give yourself permission to stand there, learn there, grow there. You only lose when you don't give yourself permission to take in the whole experience and receive from it.

My clinical experience includes, but is not limited to working with complex trauma, eating disorders, identity issues, infidelity, mood disorders, post-abortion recovery, pre-marital stress, grief, addiction, LGBTQ+ populations, inter-cultural couples, and sexual abuse .
I believe in the healing power of relationships. Often, what leads people to therapy is feeling disconnected from the world around them. Humans are relational creatures with a primal need to feel accepted, so disconnection in relationships can leave one feeling hopeless. You can expect me to help you through relational healing. Together, we will look at the relationship you have to yourself and how this impacts the way you navigate relationships with others. I often ask clients to look at how emotions are felt in their body and teach them ways to recognize and cope in the here and now.

As a Licensed Clinical Social Worker (LCSW) in the state of North Carolina, I have worked with domestic violence and sexual assault survivors.
You already have the answers you need. You do. All you really need is someone to listen to you as you figure out what you already know, or someone to encourage you to make the changes you know you need to make. Sometimes you are waiting for permission to take a step, set a boundary, leave an unhealthy relationship, etc. Other times, you may know you need to change, but just don’t know how. Counseling is a place to let down your walls, process pain, and gain insight from a trusted, neutral person without fear of judgment.

Certain events in our lives can alter the way we view ourselves, others, and the world around us. Maybe you're blaming yourself for something that happened to you. Maybe you're angry at yourself for not being able to move past it. Maybe it's so distressing that you are struggling with daily functioning. You may be starting to notice the ways that these events are impacting your relationships, education, or work life. You may have tried to express yourself to someone and they told you to "just move on" or "look on the bright side". I am here to tell you: your feelings are valid. As humans, we were not made to carry our burdens alone.

I have advanced training and experience in interpersonal trauma, focusing on child sexual abuse , childhood sexual behavior problems, and parenting children with these experiences.
You are searching for some help and I'm glad you are here. There are times when we need to reach out. Sometimes people we love hurt us. Intentionally, or unintentionally, we hurt them. We let each other down. Our children who are meant to be our greatest joy sometimes are a source of unimagined worry or pain. At times it feels that our life has not turned out how we believed it should have. This realization can feel lonely, be confusing and cause us tremendous pain. Having a safe person and a healthy, trusting relationship with an experienced therapist can help.
