I have been practicing counseling in NC for the last 13 years and have experience with couples, adolescents, and adults. My goal in counseling is to help you discover your ability to self-regulate your emotions in a safe and nurturing atmosphere. I invite people to look inward to integrate their own individual values in order to become whole in body, mind, and spirit. Along life's journey, we all need occasional assistance to help deal with the stressors of life and to reclaim the fullness that life can offer. I am committed to assisting you to find that place.

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.

The events that happen are not intended to be permanent, but instead are part of our journey. It is our story being written and we have the ability to choose the next chapter. The path of life can have difficult times, often with unexpected twists and turns. When this occurs, it can be beneficial to have someone walk with you through the challenging times. My clients are motivated to write their own story, to have someone support them but to work towards empowerment, self-confidence, internal peace, and ultimate healing. My clients know their past does not define them but instead empower them to be the best they can be!

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.

Everyone faces challenges in life that can feel overwhelming and can impact us in very significant and unique ways. Has depression, anxiety, anger, or stress become seemingly insurmountable to the point that it impacts your daily functioning? Have you noticed a change in your eating or sleeping habits, in your relationships or desire to interact with others? If this is how life feels to you right now, its time to seek help and guidance. You don't have to face this on your own and assistance begins with a phone call or email.

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.

I am honored to be of service to you. I know that trauma and substance abuse and addiction can wreak havoc in one's life. Many of client's find themselves faced with challenges of having to restart their lives during mental challenges and addiction; some may have to fight to regain custody of their children; many of them have co-occurring mental illness that has lead to substance abuse and/or addiction. For some, addiction comes by way of biological, environmental, and social influences, but from my experience, I have learned that mental illness was present before addiction became a factor.

I am passionate about working with children, adolescents, and their families. I specialize in play therapy and solution focused therapy. I look forward to helping you or your child work through the every day struggles and sometimes overwhelming struggles of everyday life. I approach counseling from a holistic perspective and feel the child will benefit more from counseling if the family unit is healthy. This is why I invite the family to be a part of therapy and work to make the family a healthy place for the child/teen to grow and mature.

Obsessive-Compulsive (OCD) Therapists
Obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD) is an anxiety disorder in which people have unwanted and repeated thoughts, feelings, ideas, sensations (obsessions), or behaviors that make them feel driven to do something (compulsions). It affects children, kids, teens and adults. Often the person carries out the behaviors to get rid of the obsessive thoughts, but this only provides temporary relief. Not performing the obsessive rituals can cause great anxiety. A person's level of OCD can be anywhere from mild to severe, but if severe and left untreated, it can destroy a person's capacity to function at work, at school or even to lead a comfortable existence in the home.
