These are coaching sessions as opposed to counseling. I won’t be asking about your mom or dad and relating anything psychological to current functioning. Rather, we set action steps and goals, like an accountability coach. Small, attainable action steps to reach an overall goal. If at any time you state that there is trauma history or psychological issues that need attention, I will immediately refer you to a social worker, counselor, or other mental health professional to suit those needs. If you need further clarification on the distinction between a life coach and counseling, please do not hesitate to ask.

I believe that making time for therapy is giving yourself and those around you a gift. A nonjudgmental curiosity about the self will allow you to understand with greater clarity what you want your life to look like. . . and to make that intention your reality.

I look at your concerns in the context of your childhood experiences, your current family and your life environments. These patterns repeat themselves. People pick up on cues that communicate what you expect out of them and what they expect out of you. These patterns are no accident, you create them! The good news is you can change them! You are like a magnet, and I help you identify what you're attracting and we change your patterns of attraction to healthy ones. It takes practice, but it can be done, and it will affect the rest of your life!

As a spiritually-integrated psychotherapist, my role is to help you nurture the conditions where you can reconnect with this wisdom. The primary condition for this reconnection is an authentic relationship with another person. At its best, therapy can help deepen self-awareness, awaken self-compassion, and broaden your capacity for meaningful relationships.

My clients want to connect to others but are afraid. They've learned in childhood that even those that are supposed to love you don't always treat you well. Yet, their deepest desires are to be seen, heard, and accepted. My clients often carry shame or guilt, and also know deep down they have immense strength and resiliency. They have the desire to move forward and live a fulfilled life, but feel stunted, stuck, or frustrated. Does any of this sound or feel familiar? Great news: it doesn't have to be this way!

Evidence-based practices such as cognitive-behavioral and solution focused therapies are examples of the theoretical orientations from which I work. I believe wholeheartedly that change comes from a blend of internal and external factors with a team approach between the therapist and client(s). My philosophy is not to "fix" people, but rather serve as a partner to support my clients toward defining and reaching their expressed personal values and goals.

What type of mental health professional is right for me?
Some of the most common types of mental health providers in North Carolina are psychologists, licensed counselors, therapists, psychotherapists, and licensed clinical social workers, all of whom diagnose mental health conditions and provide individualized treatment.

Services offered, education and credentials vary by type of mental health professional. Each professional in North Carolina then may specialize in certain areas, such as depression, marriage counseling, or anxiety. Although many mental health providers are not licensed to prescribe medication, they may coordinate with a provider who can.

Both in-person and online therapy sessions are available from most psychologists.

How to find a specialist?
You can refine your search using the filters on this page. There are several categories you can filter by to find mental health professionals with the experience you are looking for. You may want to filter for CBT Psychologists in North Carolina, or Child Psychologists in North Carolina.

Many find it useful to use filters to view only psychologists that have experience working with certain issues, like North Carolina psychologists specializing in EMDR.

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. Psychologists in North Carolina specialize in therapeutic approaches such as CBT, EMDR, and Interpersonal Therapy (IPT), among others. 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?
Many therapists accept health insurance. Check to see if your insurance is covered. Feel free to discuss this when you contact the therapist.
