I have 25 years of experience working with individuals, families and children. We all have struggles in life. I personally believe that everyone can benefit from therapy. Every person's struggle presents an opportunity to make life changes. Sometimes it's hard to determine which road to take or even how to carry on in life. Good support and a therapist who accepts you with respect and dignity, presents as non-judgmental and objective, can help you clarify your needs, goals, and wants. You will move forward and figure out how to become your best self. Then, you can learn to use some of these techniques yourself!

I am not afraid of hearing the hard truths that you don't share with others. I find it an honor and a privilege to come along side someone who trusts me enough to share their life, the good and the bad. I have supported people who have experienced things that they believe others think to be unreal, people who believe there is no reason to keep living, people who partake in activities they know are not good for them, people who struggle to have healthy relationships, and people that have been living in darkness. I want to help you break away from that darkness. I want to provide a space that fosters security, hope, and healing.

If you're at this juncture or simply have questions, know that I offer a free 15-minute phone call to talk about your or your teen 's needs, answer questions and determine goodness of fit.
Hey! I'm glad you are here looking for support. People find themselves working with me when they're feeling "stuck" and anxious, wanting to work on understanding their inner emotional world and how to believe in their inner badass. Maybe you're a parent of a teenager , young adult, new parent, or in a transitional part of life, starting therapy feels scary and you're finding you are putting it off. Just know that making the first reach is where you start, the rest we figure out together. I believe you can’t do therapy right or wrong as a client, it’s all about showing up and letting yourself be human.

I have particularly enjoyed conducting adolescent and adult intensive out patient substance abuse and personal growth groups.
Hearing from the heart and seeking help with paralyzing personal challenges can be a daunting experience. Finding someone to connect with in the process of personal healing is half the battle to a solution. Keeping the person at the center of the therapeutic process is a goal for me. I have employed this approach for over 16 years of practice in Western NC. While this majestic mountain setting is a place of unique beauty it is not free of personal challenges that may need a calm and skilled approach to navigating life' s challenges.

Stress, anxiety, uncertainty, and fear can feel overwhelming. You may find yourself turning to drugs or alcohol, harmful eating patterns, self-harm, or fall back on other old habits to cope with your emotions. You may be struggling with anxiety, stress, depression, or fear. Maybe you are in recovery from addiction or an eating disorder, and are having trouble maintaining your progress. You may be navigating your gender and sexual identify. Or perhaps you are concerned that your teenager is dealing with some of these issues. Whatever you are facing, you are not alone! I am here to provide support, guidance, and encouragement.

Adolescence and young adulthood are challenging times, full of growth and transition for individuals and families. I love supporting adolescents and emerging adults as they explore their identities and light their paths into adulthood. I am skilled at working with families through these transitional times, and also enjoy supporting couples in achieving healthy communication and partnership. My clinical experience runs the gamut from in-home work with court mandated youth, residential work with adolescent girls, and community-based outpatient therapy with high school students and kids in foster care.

Being a teen -ager is SUPER hard. Being their parent can be even harder. There are times when you struggle to comprehend where your child is coming from and have no idea what they are dealing with. Perhaps you tried communicating with your child and all you receive is 'I don't want to talk about it' or 'I'm fine.' Maybe you feel you are living with a stranger and worry that your child's behavior is hard to understand, secretive or dangerous? Technology hasn't even been mentioned yet! Living in an environment like this can challenge the family system.

You are an adolescent or adult who wants to better understand and manage the challenges and barriers of ADHD. You likely know that this neurodevelopmental condition comes with immense strengths AND often many burdens, seen and unseen. You need a collaborator in making sense of where to begin (if looking for a diagnosis or recently diagnosed), what to expect, and to help you persist toward your desired and valued life. You may be a parent/s who wants to better support a struggling child, or you may be experiencing other developmental and/or executive function challenges like autism.

I have extensive experience working with adolescent and adult clients with eating disorders and other emotional disorders.
Do you constantly reminisce back to a time in your life when things just “felt better?” We as humans tend to avoid things that make us uncomfortable, whether it be conversations, places, or even emotions. My goal as your therapist is to support you while you explore what is presently keeping you from feeling better as we identify and address what's keeping you stuck.

Adolescence to early adulthood can be a confusing and overwhelming time in a person’s development, but it’s a time with potential for powerful growth and healing. Your teen or young adult may be navigating sexual and gender preferences, peer relationships, and school responsibilities. They may be suffering from discrimination or bullying. Often these experiences can erupt in an array of struggles– anxiety, depression, gender dysphoria, anger, isolation, body image issues, or lack of focus. You want your kid to feel comfortable in their own skin; to learn ways to accept themselves and to thrive on whatever path they choose.

Teen Therapists
Adolescence can be a time of both disorientation and discovery. The transitional period can raise questions of independence and identity; as adolescents cultivate their sense of self, they may face difficult choices about academics, friendship, sexuality, gender identity, drugs, and alcohol.

Most teens have a relatively egocentric perspective on life; a state of mind that usually abates with age. They often focus on themselves and believe that everyone else—from a best friend to a distant crush—is focused on them too. They may grapple with insecurities and feelings of being judged. Relationships with family members often take a backseat to peer groups, romantic interests, and appearance, which teens perceive as increasingly important during this time.

The transition can naturally lead to anxiety about physical development, evolving relationships with others, and one's place in the larger world. Mild anxiety and other challenges are typical, but serious mental health conditions also emerge during adolescence. Finding a teen therapist in Murphy and addressing a disorder early on can help ensure the best possible outcome.
