People who seek help through the stresses and traumas of life instead of succumbing to them are the bravest people I know. Although therapy may not feel courageous, at some point, we all need the presence and compassionate care of someone committed to our healing process. This is my passion. I work with courageous people who choose to move toward wholeness while continuing to live and care for the responsibilities of their lives. A large part of my work is devoted to helping men and women work through traumatic experiences in the present and those remembered from the past.

Our focus is family preservation, however, we do handle more specific needs such as depression, anxiety, extensive trauma care, ADHD, systems work, behavioral concerns, women and men's health.
I have been working in Mental Health for more than 15 years, initially starting my journey at the Department of Social Services. I realized very early in my career that I wanted to be apart of the change that kept families together. I pride myself on true social work values; which includes integrity, ethical practices, and quality services. I have specialized certification and training in trauma and a long work history of family systems therapy.

Counseling is a collaborative process where I strive to create a safe and open environment for you to share your experiences. Areas that can be addressed through counseling include, but are not limited to grief and loss, depression, anxiety, traumatic experiences, life transitions, interpersonal conflicts, and problems with self-confidence. As we work together through the therapeutic process, we create and work toward goals that you want to achieve. We will adjust these goals to ensure that your needs are met quickly, so that you can get back to the best version of yourself.

Depression, anxiety, or trauma can stop you from enjoying your day-to-day life! It is not easy dealing with all the thoughts and emotions that are always stirred up. My hope is that together we can work to find balance and peace in your life. We cannot change the past but we can change how we think, cope and manage it today! Many struggle alone unable to truly move forward and find that freedom of internal happiness. Give me a call and together we can find your happy place!

What type of Gastonia 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 Gastonia?
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.
