During my time in practice, I have primarily worked with child/ adolescent population, but additionally have experience working with young adults.
At times, life comes at you fast, and as the old saying goes, "when it rains, it pours". During times of high stress and transition we often forget our ability to strive and thrive through the difficulties. Are you currently feeling stuck on your journey? Dealing with grief and/or loss? Struggling academically? Anxious about day to day uncertainties? You have come to the right place. With encouragement, I believe individuals have the ability to take control, channel their strengths into progress, grow their resiliency, and reconstruct their life trajectory.

Finding the right therapist for you or your teen is critical.
Autism/Asperger's means existing in a sometimes perplexing and frustrating world that largely caters much more to the neurotypical brain. Over time this can manifest in a host of issues, ranging from depression and anxiety to social isolation and loneliness. The good news is that your brain possesses hidden strengths and abilities that can more than make up for these supposed deficits. To this end, I use creative approaches to draw these skills out and teach my clients how to apply their strengths in the areas where they are struggling.

I struggled with my own mental health as a teenager and I would not have gotten through those years without the help of compassionate professionals.
I work with clients ages 16-40. I enjoy working with older adolescents and young adults to explore questions of identity, navigate periods of transition, and improve relationships with peers and family. I also enjoy helping people improve their conflict, communication, and decision-making skills. Please note that I am currently only seeing clients via telehealth.

I specialize in working with clients with eating disorders, trauma and PTSD, and anxiety disorders. My approach is integrative, drawing from effective treatments (DBT, CBT, attachment-based) to meet your particular needs. I provide short-term and long-term services to individuals and families.

Life with children is full of new, constantly changing chapters. Some beautiful and joyous, others challenging and overwhelming. Challenging chapters may include learning your child has specific learning or behavioral needs, feeling concerned for a withdrawn teen , navigating your child’s adoption narrative with them, or providing a safe space for your child to process trauma. In the midst of trying to understand your child, you, the parent, have your own needs as well. As a clinical psychologist, I partner with children AND caregivers to provide holistic and culturally sensitive care to navigate new seasons of life, together.

I work evenings (M, Tu, Th, and occasional weekends) with primarily adolescent and adult populations ranging from anxiety/depression, addiction and my personal special interest of working with people of color and racial/medical anxiety/trauma.
Are you barely making it through your day? Through your life? You feel like something is missing? Or you cannot let go of something pulling you to the past? A lot of individuals feel this way. People walk around feeling empty, not knowing if they can make it to tomorrow, keeping in trauma and trying to forget the past. What do they all have in common? They keep it in. Depression, anxiety, trauma, addiction, etc. All the labels that get thrown around but are real life realities to a lot of people. How do you work through it? Is holding it in working? Are you able to actually cope? Are you able to function? What do you need? Therapy?

With over 30 years of experience, I subscribe to a solution-focus philosophy, in which I strive to address the problem as quickly as possible, but with enough depth to avoid relapse. I set goals early in treatment with adults and couples, or with children/teenagers and their families, so we can find successful solutions and change behavior problems, emotional difficulties, academic difficulties, or family problems as soon as possible. I love people and people's stories, and am always truly and deeply interested in the story of every child, teen , and adult I meet. I also think laughter is therapeutic and therapy can be fun.

Individual (child, teen , adult, seniors), couples and family counseling.
My practice is currently full. Please check back. --For decades, I've helped people of all kinds in a variety of life challenges. Through relational therapy, applying complementary therapeutic approaches such as CBT, my goal is to help YOU uncover your true potential and power to live a life you enjoy. Do you doubt that is possible? Therapy may consist of practicing skills related to social and emotional learning; learning how your thoughts effect everything, uncovering and navigating the life stories and perhaps telling those stories over and over, of depression, trauma, anxiety, loss, and stress. Want to try?

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. Finding a teen therapist in Durham and addressing a disorder early on can help ensure the best possible outcome.
