As a transpersonal somatic psychotherapist, biodynamic craniosacral therapist, SoulCollage facilitator and holistic nurse, mother, wife, daughter, empty nester and fellow traveler, I help people develop the tools and skills for inner awareness and embodiment so they can live in this world with joy and an increasing capacity for love.
My joy is supporting others in coming back to themselves and ultimately to their connection with others and with the divine. Whether exploring the patterns developed during our conception, birth or early life, or connecting with the body’s wisdom, there is a way we can be with what is happening that allows us to integrate what is most essential. Slowing down, finding your rhythm, tuning in to what you are needing and wanting for yourself, being curious…some sessions are deeply restorative, some profound or surprising, some simply provide the necessary structure for living fully in this 3-D world.

This may include traditional therapeutic techniques as well as experiential therapies, equine-assisted psychotherapy, mindfulness, yoga therapy, somatic approaches, and expressive arts.
Therapy is a healing and transformative process, and it takes courage to seek help with the issues often brought to counseling. I believe healing involves looking at the whole person, and it is important to me to provide a safe environment for my clients where they can explore their challenges without judgment, and share with honesty and openness. I work with children, adolescents, teens & adults who want to become their best selves! Many are seeking greater self-awareness & guidance on their path, & many struggle with anxiety, depression, self-esteem, trauma, body image, relationships, family stress & life transitions.

I use mindfulness, self-compassion, reparenting, and somatic techniques to help you connect better with yourself so you can start connecting better with others.
Childhood trauma sucks. When you're raised in a shaming, blaming, or abusive family, you grow up doubting your self-worth, questioning your lovability, and always waiting for the other shoe to drop. As a grownup, you get stressed out, needy or blow up in your relationships. It can be hard to feel secure with the people who matter to you the most. If you want to be less reactive with your loved ones and handle family of origin better, I’m your person. And I truly can’t wait to meet you.

CBT, somatic , etc.
Each client is the expert of their own experience. My job as a therapist is to help you realize your own power to reach your goals. I believe the goal of therapy is for a client to work on self-healing as they find healing within community, so that they no longer need therapy. I work with clients with all types of trauma, including religious trauma, intimate partner violence, etc. I help clients deconstruct all oppressive ideologies, whether we are directly harmed by them or were indoctrinated to believe them. As a queer person, I also specialize in working with LGBTQIA+ clients, including asexual, aromantic, and bisexual clients.

When we experience trauma, we are often left feeling alone, misunderstood, invisible, and unsafe, even within ourselves. Through the process of therapy, we can regain hope, connection, safety, and understanding of ourselves and others. I use wide-range of evidenced-based modalities, from psychodynamic and CBT to EMDR and somatic therapies to decrease the emotional reactivity, tension, and isolation that trauma can create. Regardless of our trauma histories, our modern world can contribute to feelings of disconnection, dissatisfaction, and uncertainty about our worth and our purpose.

I am a Licensed Clinical Mental Health Counselor, a Licensed Clinical Addictions Specialist and a Certified Clinical Supervisor. I have also completed three years of training in Somatic Experiencing (SE) which is a body-awareness approach to trauma. Dr. Peter Levine realized that human beings have an innate ability to overcome the effects of trauma. SE supports our bodies to access our body's innate wisdom and apply it to healing and resolving the effects of trauma. What I love most about my work is being allowed on the journey with individuals and families as they grow and heal emotionally and spiritually.

Somatic Experiencing is a body based approach to healing and the cornerstone of all my sessions, assisting you in soothing, settling, quieting, and balancing your nervous system. This approach reconnects to your inner wisdom and utilizes the body’s innate capacity to heal to help you live more fully and harmoniously.

Our sessions are more than just talking but also incorporating your mind & body to encourage deep healing and feel re-connected to yourself with somatic and talk therapy.
Often our hurtful experiences are out of our control. You didn’t choose to live with pain. You are tired of feeling alone and misunderstood. The reality is our experiences and memories can shape our beliefs and worldviews, creating guilt, anxiety, shame, anger, and isolation. Living with chronic pain, illness, trauma, anxiety, and grief – does impact us. Even if you don’t feel like it at this very moment, there is part of you that knows they deserve something more, whether it’s self-compassion, healthy connections, pleasure, joy, or the chance to move from surviving to thriving. Let's get curious.

My modalities include: Internal Family Systems, Somatic Experiencing, Jungian/Depth Psychology, Yogic Philosophy, Mindfulness and Meditation.
Do you feel stuck or lost much of the time, but also have an innate ability to recognize that you want and deserve more out of life, out of your relationships, perhaps more out of yourself? Do you want to participate in a deep dive of possible unconscious material that may be holding you back? Being able to open up about these vulnerabilities is challenging and involves deep exploration into the psyche. My intention is to create a safe, accepting container so you are able to explore all parts of yourself, welcome them and integrate them into your life.

These methods include dream inquiry, mindfulness techniques, and somatic practices to guide individual learning during the self-development process.
Learn in a nurturing therapeutic environment, discover tools for self-development and gain pragmatic skills to enhance the fullness of your life. While the old age adage asks "glass half full or half empty?" my personal mantra is "why not change the size of the container so your glass is always full!" Perhaps you are experiencing a time when you are unable to move beyond your current level of awareness and/or seeing limited growth? It is with your full potential in mind that I choose to incorporate not only "talk therapy", but also integrative depth psychological practices such as dream work into the clinical setting.

What type of 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, it might be useful to first learn more about therapy types and modalities.
How to find a therapist in Charlotte?
When looking to find a therapist, it is certainly important to consider training and credentials. Studies also indicate that the therapeutic alliance, or the relationship the client develops with the therapist, is an important factor in their ability to work together to achieve the client’s goals.

What method of therapy is right for me?
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.

How to use my insurance?
Understanding cost and insurance coverage is an important concern for many people. With some basic research and conversations with prospective therapists, you should be able to have a good understanding of the best way to afford therapy.
