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.

I am experienced in issues of anger management, anxiety/depression, impulse control, relational issues, trauma / PTSD , and ongoing life adjustments.
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.

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!

I hope that this message found you ready to let go of the patterns that ail you and prepared to embrace something new. You do not have to suffer not one day longer, we can navigate it together and I can be with you sitting in your closet or in sweat pants petting your dog healing. If you are feeling stuck, uncertain of how or if therapy can even help, like the last man standing, judged or alienated, this is your place to be celebrated and accepted for all of who you are. A good therapy session realigns your inner compass and enhances the things that make you EXTRAordinary. Lets connect, big personality, and complex trauma welcomed.

I work with individuals, couples, and families with a variety of situations such as grief, anxiety, depression, relational issues and trauma .
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 aim to help you cultivate a positive sense of self so that generational patterns, trauma , and self-sabotage will no longer hold your authentic self hostage.

Do you feel like your gloomy days outweigh your good days, or are you so overwhelmed with worry and stress that you no longer experience pleasure? I’ve been there, and I know how it feels to be stuck. Whether you are a teen or an adult, we all face obstacles that require someone to help us get “unstuck”. I am that person - if you need guidance, support, or a listening ear, I am here to provide a nonjudgemental and therapeutic atmosphere that will aid you on your healing journey. It's time to get UNSTUCK and embark on a transformational journey to self-discovery.

I practice Person-Centered Therapy with inclusive elements of Trauma Focused Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Narrative, Gestalt, and Experiential Family Therapies.
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.

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 specialties are post traumatic stress issues, chronic pain, and enhancing sports performance. I work primarily with adults. My past experience as a world ranked professional tennis player gives me insight to work with high school, collegiate and professional athletes. I work from a depth model, which encourages self-exploration in service of healing. The exploration helps clients become conscious of long standing coping mechanisms that may no longer be as valuable as they once were. Learning what you do that blocks happiness empowers you to make choices that lead to a satisfying life.

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.

Trauma and PTSD Therapists
Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) is a psychological reaction that occurs after an extremely stressful event, such as physical violence or military combat. Those suffering from PTSD have recurring memories of the stressful event and are anxious or scared even in the absence of danger. Flashbacks and nightmares are common symptoms as well.
