I’ve dedicated my work to supporting children, adolescents, adults experiencing depression, anxiety, PTSD, adjustment disorders, Autism Spectrum Disorder, family conflict, parenting challenges, teen difficulties, and general life stressors.
**PLEASE USE EMAIL FOR MOST EFFICIENT RESPONSE** Life is full of transitions and changes; some are welcome, and some are life shattering. What do you do when the aftermath of these changes is too much to manage? While it is common to feel anxious, overwhelmed, defeated, confused, and uncertain; you don’t have to stay in that place. Defining your new normal after these moments can require support and guidance.

There is hope, acceptance, compassion and healing in therapy. I create a non-judgmental, nurturing, safe space for clients to explore their struggles, process their pain and acquire skills to accomplish set goals. I walk alongside each client to help them regain their power, happiness, peace, confidence and ability to live the life they deserve.

I specialize in working with BIPOC women and teen girls dealing with trauma, anxiety, depression, self-esteem, shame, and relationship issues.
Have you been living at the heartbreak hotel? Do you feel like you are constantly reminded of the pain and burdens life has thrown at you? Yes, I know. I see you. I empathize with you, and I recognize your strength. Throughout life, we sometimes lose our sense of self due to the different hardships we have encountered. And through therapy, we can explore and process your pain, moving you out of the heartbreak hotel and into a safe place full of restoration and healing.

I am a contracted therapist in an Adolescent Intensive Outpatient Program.
Life can be hard for all of us at times. Adolescents and young adults (ages 10-22) are bombarded with negative messages that challenge their core beliefs, self-worth, and mental wellness. Therapy is a safe and supportive place to discover inner strength, learn skills to use when faced with challenges or intense emotions, and understand the connections between emotions, thoughts, and behaviors. Additionally, I work with parents on understanding their stress, developing supportive communication styles and setting realistic boundaries. Lastly, I work with fellow educators who are feeling burnout from stressful work expectations.

*Accepting new clients..I have worked in the Charlotte area since 1997 completing evaluations and providing counseling. I specialize in assessing and diagnosing children, adolescents, and young adults. Psychological evaluations provide information necessary to help individuals achieve success in their lives. Parents often question: under-achievement, inattention/distractibility, executive skills, proper interventions, and/or strengths and weaknesses of their child. I assess for learning disabilities, attention disorders, autism spectrum disorders, anxiety, giftedness, kindergarten readiness, and private school admissions (CAIS).

I specialize in treating school-based behavioral issues, adolescent depression and anxiety, LGBT+ identity, adoptive/blended families, and trauma; and provide parent guidance to caregivers.
I have been working with adolescents and young adults for 15 years. I am passionate about connecting teens and their families with resources to ensure they receive holistic care. I believe that even young teenagers can learn important skills that will support them in living healthy adult lives, and I consider the whole family unit as part of the treatment team. I am also passionate about providing clinical services to women (and those who identify as women). I use a strength-based approach to empower women to find their power and their voice to assert themselves at home, in the workplace, and in their relationships.

Chances are, if you're reading this, you are already noticing there are behaviors or patterns in your life you think could be better, and think it could be helpful to talk to someone about them. Someone who's not a friend, parent, teacher, or co-worker; someone who is impartial, someone with nothing to gain from you going one way or another. Engaging in counseling is a brave choice, and I am here to give space to your burdens so that you can continue on your journey that much lighter.

Avoid phone tag go to to my "website" link, schedule your individual 15-20 minute phone or video consult. Thank you for your time. As a person and a therapist, I understand how real life demands can create barriers to getting help. Maybe you have known that you needed help and just never had time or permission to get it. Of the myriads of things that can impact our mental health, trauma is by far one of the things that can interfere with our ability to move with ease in life. Sometimes feeling emotionally overwhelmed and unable to focus or on overdrive, or alternately shut down, trauma can leave us feeling blocked from our dreams.

It’s hard to know how to start an introduction like this. It can quickly feel like I am trying to “sell” myself to you, which is not the point. It's for you to get to know me. I have found therapy to be most beneficial under two conditions: first and foremost, a person HAS to be ready. Ready to make changes; ready to dig deep. I think we have all been guilty of continuing the same patterns of behavior, hoping things will magically change one day. I advise a healthy mix of tangible change along with exploration to identify how core beliefs, negative thoughts and family dynamics impact present behaviors and relationships.

Is something keeping your peace? Do you struggle daily/weekly with anxiety and/or depression. Are you ready to move forward and be full of life? Often times we get stuck in our past or stuck in the negatives because it's comfortable and known. It's your choice to stay stuck or to take a chance and move forward. The unknown can be a very scary place but with positive coping skills, my support and encouragement, I can show you how to step back, reevaluate your scenario and prepare yourself to move forward.

Teen Therapists
Adolescence can be a time of both disorientation and discovery. The transitional period can raise questions of independence and identity; as adolescents cultivate their sense of self, they may face difficult choices about academics, friendship, sexuality, gender identity, drugs, and alcohol.

Most teens have a relatively egocentric perspective on life; a state of mind that usually abates with age. They often focus on themselves and believe that everyone else—from a best friend to a distant crush—is focused on them too. They may grapple with insecurities and feelings of being judged. Relationships with family members often take a backseat to peer groups, romantic interests, and appearance, which teens perceive as increasingly important during this time.

The transition can naturally lead to anxiety about physical development, evolving relationships with others, and one's place in the larger world. Mild anxiety and other challenges are typical, but serious mental health conditions also emerge during adolescence.
