As your therapist, I will provide a safe, nonjudgmental, and empathic setting for you to share about your current situation; explore early life experiences; gain a helpful understanding of your emotional world; and why you think and act in particular, problematic patterns. Many, if not all, of our emotional burdens (anxiety, people-pleasing, lying, codependency, lack of coping skills, mistrust of authority, hypersensitivity, defensiveness, an underdeveloped sense of self, parenting struggles, relationship issues) are the result of earlier wounds that infuse within us lasting well into adulthood.

As a therapist and life coach, my goal is to help you feel both empowered and at peace with yourself and your life and to guide you on a positive path to growth and well-being. Through our work together, I seek to help you uncover your true self, find your voice, & align your values & life choices. While we can't change difficult situations of the past, we can work together to better understand and resolve challenges in your life. Simultaneously I will introduce you to tools and strategies that may help you better navigate the stress and anxiety of life and hopefully enable you to experience greater peace, joy, and well being.

My approach is relational. I see therapy as a chance to connect with another human in a protected relationship that allows for openness and honesty. In the safety of that relationship, I challenge my clients so we get beneath the surface, where they develop new insights, find greater meaning, and deeper connection with others. I specialize in work with men, those experiencing relationship issues and divorce, life transitions, and in recovery from substance use.

Sometimes life is hard and you need help coping. Sometimes you get angry and you're not sure why or how to control it. Sometimes bad things happen and you can't get over it the way your friends and family expect you to. Maybe you don't really know what's going on, but you recognize that something isn't right. I want to help you figure out what isn't working in your life and get you to where you want to be.

Inspiration is the key to successful change and growth. Although problems can have similar origins, we as unique human beings bring to our life a perspective that is different than anyone else. As such it is important that our uniqueness is valued and respected. In helping clients with their various issues, this is the cornerstone of my approach. I see my role as a mirror, helping you to craft a plan to get from where you are currently to where you want to be based on your value system. Remember, change starts from within.

I work with adolescents and adults who are struggling with anything from anxiety, depression, mood disorders, and addictions to stress management, relationships, boundary setting, difficult life events, and finding identity. I also work with people with co-occurring I/DD. Learning skillful ways to listen to, and cope with, emotions and the life events eliciting them is the first step toward healing and finding balance in life. Often that includes unlearning maladaptive coping skills, like alcohol and drug use, avoidance, or self harm. In therapy, my goal is to help develop coping skills, build confidence, and find balance.

I strive to make everyone I talk to feel heard, respected, and comfortable in sharing with me. I remain attentive to my clients' needs while using a little bit of humor and positivity along the way. I approach therapy as a team effort in which we both learn and work together on the client's goals of choice. I'm most skillful at helping people understand their emotions better, processing changes in their life, and seeing themselves in a more strengths-based way.

*Waitlist Only* Are you coping with stress, relationship difficulties, or loss? Feeling overwhelmed or consumed by intense emotions and thoughts? Distressed by memories of the past or worries about the future? We all need help navigating these understandable human struggles. Maybe you're aware of what isn't working and want help figuring out how to take steps toward change. Maybe you're confused about why you feel so stuck or unhappy. Maybe you have already invested time, money, and energy, with mixed results or limited success. It's common to feel uncertain about how to move forward or whether therapy is the right next step.

I offer clients a collaborative approach to address whatever may have brought them to my door. My relationally focused psychodynamic style supports the idea that healing occurs through our connection with others. By providing a safe and solid therapeutic relationship to a person, that person begins to experience a greater range of perspective regarding their own life and the lives around them. With increased self-awareness, individuals are able to recognize that they have more choices in their lives. I have found this to be true regardless of what obstacles a person may be facing.

It can be hard to know which therapist will meet your needs. If you are anxious, stressed, tired, down, struggling with relationships, or just feel like something is 'off', I might be the right fit for you. People often work with me on issues within their relationships, feeling comfortable with their emotions, and overcoming obstacles to success. People might have trouble with body image, maintaining meaningful friendships, managing conflict, setting boundaries, coping with fear, and reconnecting with themselves after traumatic experiences. If this resonates with you, I'm so glad you found my page.

What type of Durham 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 Durham?
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.
