My approach to therapy is "integrative," meaning that I draw from several different types of therapy (psychodynamic, interpersonal, cognitive behavioral, client-centered, family systems) to find what will best meet your needs.
If you are thinking about counseling or therapy, chances are you are in distress, feeling not like yourself, or are looking for help in dealing with a difficult situation. You also probably want to find a therapist who is going to understand you and who has experience dealing with the problems and concerns that you are facing. I am available for in-person or telehealth sessions in North Carolina. I also offer telehealth appointments for patients located in New York or Florida.

**Free 30-min Video Consultation** Being in the circus taught me that juggling too many balls in the air can lead to feeling like you're always picking up the pieces rather than enjoying the show. While our emotions float up and down, we start applying binary labels of "good" (happy) and "bad" (anger, sadness, anxiety) that our systems (e.g., US Society, Family , Culture) has assigned. Improve self-awareness of our emotions, thoughts, and the stories we tell ourselves about our worth internally, with others, and in the world. Change the Narrative you've internalized through identifying, observing, respecting, and accepting emotions.

Are you struggling to move beyond unresolved, painful experiences from your past? Did you have a difficult and/or unhappy childhood? Growing up in a dysfunctional family system can often leave you feeling broken, depressed and lonely. You may have difficulty trusting yourself and others, have problematic relationships, chronic health problems and suffer with low self-esteem, shame and guilt. You may feel stuck repeating the same old patterns that ultimately sabotage you from experiencing joy in your life. You are not alone and there IS HOPE.

It can be difficult to work on yourself while trying to maintain a job, family , school, and numerous other factors that can get in the way of you getting the support you need.
Today you may not feel strong or capable. Your relationships are failing, you have lost sight of who you are, and your life is in chaos. You feel completely broken, lost, and incapable of finding your way back to the light. When you look in the mirror you don’t even recognize the person staring back at you. You look at your partner and feel like you are staring at a stranger. How did it get to this point? This is not what you had in mind. You have struggled, you have been hurt, you have faced the scary things in life and just want to feel alive and strong again.

When you are overwhelmed and not sure that you are giving your best to your work, relationships and family , the self doubt can be overwhelming. Maybe you feel misunderstood. Through, the "Gentle Listening" of therapy I provide, you can feel cared for and decrease your anxiety, as you face difficult decisions. In time, you can again find joy in the little things, feel love in your relationships, satisfaction in your career and peace with your children. I believe we all have our own answers, but sometimes we need to have someone help us find them. I am always honored when I am that person.

Systems Therapy concentrates on family dynamics because none of us lives in a vacuum.
Life can be daunting and stressful. For every difficulty there is a solution. I believe it is within us all to become energized to lead happy, productive lives. Sometimes we just need some extra support to reach our goals. My favorite part about being a psychotherapist is helping people realize their strengths and become empowered to lead healthy lives. This power is within all of us. We just need to tap into it. I can help you learn how to do that. I have a very broad background in the mental health field for the past 30 years. I enjoy working with adolescents, families, couples, and people who are addicted to anything.

My patients seek healing from inner pain. Their issues often include grief, anxiety, depression, panic attacks, relationship issues, life transitions, burnout, and financial stress. Exploring their concerns in a safe space, we address who they are, what they care about, and how they can cope more effectively. We also discuss how personality preferences influence their behaviors and conflict styles. Working with their family stories, we find traits and relationship patterns that affect their lives and find strategies to manage them. Discussions about faith, spirituality, and ethics are welcomed and invited.

Family Therapy

What do family therapists do?

A family therapist facilitates the process of understanding and improving how a family functions. The therapist will help family members develop empathy for one another. They’ll seek to understand existing patterns, misunderstandings, and conflicts that arise, in order to help the family arrive at a realistic, unified understanding and develop the coping skills they need to build stronger relationships.

How long does therapy for families take to work?

Therapy manifests differently in every family; a common time frame is 12 weekly sessions, but some families may see improvement after just a few weeks. Families should discuss their goals with the therapist at the beginning of the process and periodically revisit those goals to assess their progress together.

How can you encourage a family member to attend family therapy?

You can encourage family members to attend therapy by expressing with both love and concern the challenges you see and explaining how a therapist could help the family navigate those challenges together. An outside perspective can help everyone feel heard, get on the same page, and develop new skills. If family members are still hesitant, it may be helpful to emphasize that family therapy is short-term—it won’t last forever.

Is therapy for families effective?

Family therapy can significantly improve family dynamics and relationships. Research suggests that family therapy can help individuals understand their role in the family, communicate and solve problems together, reduce conflict and draw boundaries when necessary, and develop coping skills for stressors, major life changes, and mental or physical illnesses within the family.
