I assist men and women as individuals or couples who want to improve their marriage.
Another day of arguments, misunderstandings, and frustration. Feeling overwhelmed and underappreciated. It feels like you are just going through the motions in your marriage and not finding true fulfillment. You are finding that your time at work is more enjoyable than your time at home. These experiences lead you to ask yourself questions like, “Do I still want this relationship? Did I choose the wrong person?” Just thinking about spending the rest of your life in a horrible or mediocre marriage makes you sick to your stomach and causes dread. All you want is to feel loved, heard, and appreciated.

I have a background in crisis services. I have treated numerous clients, both women and men , with a history of sexual, physical, and emotional abuse. For as long as I can remember I have been told that I help others feel  better about themselves or difficult situations in their lives. This has not been through offering some "grand solution" to their problems but through a willingness to listen and offer kindness to people in need at anytime. I strive to bring this quality into the way I practice counseling. I truly see helping others as a privilege and my being in the counseling field as a calling from God.

ONLINE SCHEDULING AVAILABLE. I have a deep passion to serve people who have struggled with anxiety, panic, and anything trauma related. In my field, I am the region's first Neuro Emotional Technique practitioner(NET). What this means for my patients is that NET is the fastest and easiest way to identify stressors and trauma within the body's nervous system, and eliminate them in as little as one session. As a patient of NET myself, I am a true believer in what it can do in changing lives. NET has changed the lives of my patients so quickly, that they only need a couple of sessions before returning to their normal lives.

I enjoy working with individuals who want to find out who they are and where they want to go. I specialize in working with people going through major life transitions, desire to have a stronger sense of identity, and asking serious questions about their view of life. Because of this, I specialize in working with those who are in the LGBTQ+ community, Gen Z and Millennials, and those impacted by major changes such as moving away from home, divorce, job changes, and more. Further, I work closely with those going through spiritual questioning, no matter their faith.

It is my belief that within each of us, the mind, body, and spirit work in unison to maintain a sense of balance and wellness. However, there are times when we may encounter challenges and unanticipated events that may cause a disturbance in these areas, which may be evidenced by undesirable thoughts, feelings or behaviors. I have the required training, licensure and experience to practice individual, group, and marriage/family counseling with all age groups encompassing a general range of presenting problems/concerns.

My ideal client is anyone who is in distress. I was struck recently by the assertion that all manner of psychological disturbance has its roots in trauma. With that in mind, their issues condense to navigating their life challenges in a relaxed body with intentions focused on where they would like to be, rather than where they are.

I love being a biblical counselor because I love seeing God bring hope and change into the tender and difficult places of our relationships, emotions, and pains of life. It is such a privilege to be invited into the lives of my clients. I see clients with marital, parenting, and other relationship struggles. I see them as they are coping with trauma, grief, and the usual transitions and struggles of life. I see them as they engage with anxiety, depression, or the weight of guilt and shame. I would be thrilled to join you, for a time, along your path.

Experience, experience, experience. As a psychologist with over 35 years serving adults, children, adolescents, couples, and families, I understand that "well begun is half done" which means that respecting each individual's unique starting point in therapy is essential. I have a distinct health orientation based in science which has repeatedly proven that most emotional distress is ultimately stress-related. Therefore, emotional balance and well-being is inherently available to almost anyone. Ultimately, experience has shown that quality emotional work pays off.

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.
