I am a part of and specialize in working with the transgender community, but I am happy to work with people from all walks of life.
Accepting New Clients - Some things in life can feel really big and overwhelming. Working with a therapist can help you develop skills to make those 'big' things feel much less daunting. Taking a person-centered, humanistic approach to therapy is important because everybody has a unique story, identity, culture, and goal. As your therapist, my role is to help you discover what works for YOU, in the context of your own life. I am here to help you unpack, understand, heal, grow, and ultimately build your own 'life toolbox' to use when things feel really big again.

In all areas of life, we get a lot of messages from the people around us and from society in general about what is right and wrong. I encourage my clients to question those messages and decide on the narrative that fits best for their lives.

Kiddos and teens can enjoy art, tactile session and mindfulness breathing and body work as we figure out together how to navigate through life's bumps and rainy days. Specializing in self-esteem, anxiety, anger issues, self-harm and family conflict, I know much these emotions can impact how we feel about ourselves, how we feel about our friends how a family functions . With some help, you can take the control back and begin to feel better. The last two years have been tough on everyone, parents and kinds alike. As an ally of the LBGTQ+ community, I embrace all clients with a warm heart and an open ear, and with hot chocolate :)

Things aren't going as you had hoped or planned. You are strong, doing your best, and holding it together. But things are starting to fall apart. Maybe it feels like you are starting to fall apart at times. You feel stressed. Disconnected. Overwhelmed. Uncertain. Perhaps you're at a transition point in life and wondering how exactly you ended up here. Maybe it is due to a loss of a relationship, the loss of hope of what could or should be, or the death of a loved one.

You work hard to do the right thing, put in extra hours to meet deadlines at work, and show up for other people. But showing up for yourself is harder. Some of the people who look up to you probably think your life is easy: "You make it seem effortless." But they don't see how much work goes into holding it all together. You take pride in how well you tolerate stress, and caring for others can certainly be a wonderful thing. But everyone deserves support, including you.

What type of North, Raleigh mental health professional is right for me?

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 or psychologist, it might be useful to first learn more about therapy types and modalities.

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.
