Licensed Clinical Mental Health Counselor, LCMHC, ATR-BC, SEP
It's time to get up, but the day ahead feels too overwhelming. You've missed out on so much, and you worry what will happen next and what everyone will think. You feel powerless to change, and you’re so tired of trying things that don’t work. No one understands why you can’t just move forward, and you may feel completely alone. I want you to know that you’re not crazy, and things don't have to be like this forever. My clients report a deeper level of healing as they feel more connected to their bodies, experience more ease in their daily lives, and re-discover their strength and resilience.
My ideal client is willing to rethink what therapy looks and feels like - being open to a variety of techniques; collaborating; and engaging body, mind, and emotions, particularly in the outdoors. I conduct experiential outdoor sessions (when weather permits), helping clients in connecting with themselves by grounding in the supportive power of nature. Walking and talking in an outdoor space allows us to engage in an informal environment, while still providing therapeutic benefits.

As a therapist with over 20 years experience, I believe in straight forward, compassionate, nonjudgemental therapy. I am currently licensed in three states (NC, SC, MI) and trained in a variety of treatment modalities. My history includes 10 years of private practice working with clients, who struggle with their moods, addictive behaviors, impulse control, grief & loss, trauma, mental health challenges, and family conflict. As a referral source for District and Circuit Courts, I facilitated Drug Court and Domestic Violence Court programs.
I am a Licensed Clinical Mental Health Counselor and I have worked with children and families for nearly 16 years. I have worked primarily in the public school setting and specialize in working with children and families who struggle with social skills, ODD behavior, conduct disorder, self-esteem, trauma, and emotional regulation. I work with children and families that may exhibit some adjustment difficulties including but not limited to divorce, grief, gender identity, sexual orientation, gender expression, and other issues facing the LGBTQ+ community. I believe relationship building is the key to healing and growth.
I enjoy working with children, adolescents, and adults as they navigate their way through challenging life experiences. I am committed to creating a safe and welcoming environment where clients are able to develop a better understanding of themselves and their world. I feel it is imperative to form relationships built on trust, and believe that real progress can only be achieved when such a relationship exists.
My aspiration is to attract the couples that I can help the most to my practice of Imago Relationship Therapy. These may be couples who are in a basically sound relationship that they would like to deepen and invigorate, couples who are stuck in unfulfilling patterns that they would like to transform, and couples who are wondering whether it is too late to recover the feelings of closeness and vitality that they once had. What all of these couples share is a mutual willingness and perseverance to do the work required, and to put in the time needed, to discover the full potential in their relationships.

Do you find yourself struggling with day to day life or perhaps a dependance on a substance that you know no longer serves you? If so, I am here to help support you through whatever life goals you feel would add to your feeling of fulfillment in life through deeper self-exploration and self-compassion. I have experience working with adults of all ages struggling with substance use, trauma, grief and loss, anxiety, depression, and disordered eating. My belief is that you already know what you need in order to heal, but that it may just not be aware to you quite yet.

Life is full, complicated, amazing and sometimes we get a curve ball thrown our way. Though each of us possess the tools and wisdom of healing, it is during those curve balls that we need someone to point out our strength and resilience. As a counselor, I am that someone with a bag of tools to help. You decide where we go, what you want out of counseling, and choose what tools you will use. Those times may come from parenting, substance use, hurting those we love, burn out, anxiety, transition, the world around us, not being able to be who we fully are, and questioning life.

I work with men and women who are tired of struggling with painful emotions. People I help often arrive with the feeling that something is missing. Maybe years of trying to cope have led to a sense of despair.
Many have a sense that today's struggle comes from yesterday's traumas. The question remains: how to break free?
Patients want to get on with living a values driven life, free from the effort to battle painful emotions. I help people discover a direction and a connection with their own values to get on with living the life they choose.

Do you believe there is something terribly wrong with you and you don't understand where it is coming from? Transactional Analysis shows us our personality is formed by age six where the combination of the messages we receive from our parents and how we learned to adapt to those messages form our life script, or pattern of behavior we repeat to get our needs met. The problem occurs when we grow up and the scripted behaviors no longer meet our adult needs, limiting our experiences in life. The script can be changed in order to adjust to our adult needs and desires. Redecision Therapy facilitates this process.

In my experience, I am a good fit for client's who are interested in exploring their own internal processes, are at least mildly self-driven, and are able to contend with existential truths. I've been helpful to those who deal with depression, anxiety, self-image issues/negative self beliefs, trauma, grief, and other needs.
For any relationship to work you must be able to communicate. Marriage can be tough. I help people communicate and manage their conflict. I am a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist, serving North Carolina since 2003. I provide marriage, premarital, individual counseling for adults. I see people with a variety of therapeutic concerns including, but not limited to, trauma, depression, anxiety, & non-supportive spouse.
People often enter therapy during times of emotional pain, uncertainty or at a time when they are seeking more meaning in their lives. Each person has within them a powerful impulse toward growth and healing. I trust that impulse and trust the therapeutic relationship to reveal your strengths, wisdom, and the next steps to your growth and healing. There is something of value in even the most difficult circumstances. When these circumstances are approached with an openness to learning, major transformations can take place. I find that the willingness to look inside yourself is a key factor in your healing.

Therapy can be a powerful way to make changes in your life. Having a therapist that you can rely on, should offer consistent support for those changes. My approach is motivational to help you identify ways to positively meet your needs by shifting your thoughts and behaviors. I often include a somatic approach to connect sensations in the body to the mind for healing. I will not expect you to relive any past trauma, but will support your readiness to explore areas of resiliency.
