I look forward to meeting clients who seek a calm, home-like environment in which to safely explore the various ways their lives may be improved. I can help anyone who is inspired to engage in self-exploration and insight-building in order to release what is old and not working and develop new habits that increase function and improve quality of life. My goal is to meet you where you are and help you to get where you would like to go.

I have had good success with working with the resolution of depression and anxiety with clients for over 35 years. I work with people who are trying to improve their marriage or reluctantly must decide another direction. Sometimes men are ambivalent about trusting therapy. While the national norm is that therapist caseloads are 70/30 % women more than men, my norm is an even split between men and women. Men do find they can make headway on stubborn relational or emotional issues. I also see adolescent boys as they make their transition into young manhood.

I believe every person has the desire to be happy and content in their world, as well as the ability to achieve this ideal. However, the way a person learned to view and operate in the world as a child can make it difficult to reach this potential. By addressing a person's core beliefs & values along with their attitudes and behaviors together we can unlock the potential that's been there from the beginning. As your therapist, I will provide a safe place for you to allow the answers that are within you to emerge so we can work with them.

Feeling broken or overwhelmed? I understand. I've done much research on addiction, codependency & adult children from dysfunctional families. It is possible to overcome barriers to intimacy and learn why we repeat the same relationship mistakes over and over again in new relationships or why we choose unhealthy people. We can change and think differently. It takes effort and accountability, but there is help and hope. Learn from your past. Don't continue to be its victim and let the past determine your future. I work with mental health and all kinds of addictions (substances and behavioral). Let's talk. Live life!

I can see the potential for true "health" in every individual and am positive and excited about each client. I hold a Doctorate in Clinical Psychology, an MFT license, an MA in Counseling Psychology, an MS in Secondary Ed/Business, & a BS in Fash Merch/Sciences. I was always led to the power of the mind and the cause/effect of family & other relationships on mental health. Psychology is my true calling, gift, and passion. Everyone needs to briefly uncover perceptions from the past and recognize how these perceptions can block us from living a balanced life in the present.

This is your journey and we can make it more relevant together! Being human is intrinsically connected to the need to adapt and evolve. To survive in ancestral environments, we had to develop ways to cope with external demands, but what happens when modern civilization no longer poses a threat to your survival? Perhaps the answer to many of your questions is found on this theory. During your treatment, we will explore the causes and mechanisms that make your problems what they are today, identify a plan to confront and resolve those issues, and develop better coping skills to protect you from intrusive thoughts - Welcome to therapy!

Sometimes the human experience, known as life, presents us with challenges that we do not feel prepared to handle. These challenges may take the form of relationship difficulties, job uncertainties, parenting issues, grief and loss, feelings of depression, anxiety, or simply life transitions. I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker and have worked in a myriad of settings including a public mental health clinic, university campus, military installations, as well as private practice. In my 20 years of experience, I have learned that people are more alike than they are different, in that, we just want to experience happiness more fully.

After receiving my Doctorate degree from the University of Virginia in 1973, my family and I relocated to Wilmington, NC. I have been in full time private practice since 1981 and an integral part of the psychology community. My personality traits include sensitivity, compassion, and an active sense of humor. Nevertheless, no therapist is right for everyone, and I encourage new patients to have 3-4 sessions with any counselor before judging whether there is a connection. If we connect, great. If not, I am happy to assist patients in finding healthy and appropriate therapists suitable for them.

I use the specialist rather than the generalist model of care. I am board certified in Dialectical Behavior Therapy and certified in Prolonged Exposure for PTSD and maintain up to date continuing education, seek any needed supervision, and keep up with relevant research findings in those areas. As such, I am particularly qualified to work with clients who seek treatment for issues related to Borderline Personality Disorder, Mood Disorders, Anxiety Disorders, Substance Use Disorders and PTSD.. I believe that if you are suffering from a specific issue, you deserve to receive the appropriate care for that issue.

Bridging the potential within, along with opening our hearts and minds to all of life's possibilities is the underlying focus of my practice. I believe that therapy is a collaborative one with the client in which strengths within are identified, and assistance is given to help the person find their own inner solutions. Optimal growth and change is achieved by identifying and breaking down those obstacles that stand in the way of a persons true happiness and potential.

My approach to the collaborative effort of psychotherapy is influenced by structural/strategic family systems theory, informing the process of joining with clients to clarify their roles in relationship, family, and community. Creative engagement in experiential learning assists individuals, couples, and families in gaining a fresh perspective through focused work that brings lasting results. I endeavor, in every client relationship, to de-mystify the daunting prospect of change, empowering personal choice in difficult circumstances through guided self-exploration.

What type of Wilmington mental health professional is right for me?
While most types of therapy have a lot in common, they also fall into clusters that share core features, such as cognitive therapies or psychodynamic approaches. 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.

How to find a therapist or counselor in Wilmington?
When looking to find a therapist, start by considering training and credentials. Studies also indicate that the therapeutic alliance, or the relationship the client develops with the therapist, is an important factor in their ability to work together to achieve the client’s goals.

What method of therapy is right for me?
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.

How to use my insurance?
Understanding cost and insurance coverage is an important concern for many people. With some basic research and conversations with prospective therapists, you should be able to have a good understanding of the best way to afford therapy.
