I specialize in Christian counseling and strive to help everyone find purpose in their experiences, create a vision for healing and truly embrace their full potential. My approach for clinical work has always been to be present with each person and encourage them to use whatever trials they have experienced to become stronger and enhance their overall story. I genuinely believe none of us have to be defined by what has happened to us in life, but rather can use those experiences, good and bad alike, to become better versions of ourselves.

Life can sometimes be overwhelming and we just don’t know how to move forward. Therapy provides a safe, supportive place to regroup, experience nonjudgmental support, and take back the control you have been searching for. While talking to someone can be uncomfortable and sometimes daunting, finding the right therapist that can guide and encourage you will help make lasting transformation in your life.

I prefer email & text over voice call. I hope to provide a sense of safety, trust, and acceptance. I tend to work with clients who were once like myself, unsure why they never really "fit" into different settings throughout childhood and now adulthood. It can come as feeling a tiny bit different than those around you. Maybe you did well in school and had a couple close friends, but you don't understand why you feel overwhelmed by certain large environments, sounds, or even foods. You may know the word autism, but only think of it as Sheldon Cooper or Rain Man. It could be that you identify as queer and feel there is something else.

I do not have openings at this time. To me, the most important things I do as a psychologist are to listen to you carefully and attentively; and to respond in such a way that you feel heard and understood on a deep level. Many people come to psychotherapy feeling their problems or symptoms don't make sense, leaving them feeling worried or discouraged. In our meetings, we will discuss your feelings and experiences, so you can learn more about what you do feel, and how your feelings do in fact make sense, given what you've been through in your life.

On the surface; you seem fine, but inside, you have a self-critical voice that won’t let up. You have a lot of feelings that you feel deeply. This can be a strength but it can also leave you feeling confused about why others don't see what you see. Others may have told you that you are too sensitive but you also may be the person that they come to for advice or support. Maybe you have been hesitant to try counseling because you feel that you should be able to figure this out yourself.

I have many years of experience helping adolescents, young adults, adults, families and parents function more effectively in their relationships and in the world. Rather than focus on diagnoses or symptoms, I prefer to see a client as whole person and to help them unearth the roots of their issues or problems. It takes bravery, commitment, compassion and sometimes a supportive guide, to face our pain and transform our relationship to it. By letting go of past emotional burdens, we can then more easily work to change the behaviors that result from them.

Don’t let the stigma of mental illness and therapy get in the way of being the best version of yourself.

I partner with you to provide a safe space to be authentically you. Therapy is about being honest with yourself about things that you may not want to face. I specialize in working with individuals who live with depression, anxiety, suicidal and self-harming thoughts.

Do you feel stuck? Reaching out for help may seem frightening, but is a sign of strength. My role as a therapist is to help you rediscover yourself or the parts of you that you've lost. The therapy room is a good place to sift through negative thoughts and disturbing emotions. I believe in the interpersonal process of therapy, the value of the therapeutic relationship, and in working with an individual on a holistic basis, to help him or her alleviate stress and regain a sense of personal freedom.

Teletherapy (Online Therapy, Virtual Therapists) Therapists
Teletherapy and Online counseling have grown enormously as a medium for therapy since the advent of social distancing. Most therapists are happy to provide sessions by video or phone.

All professionals are licensed to provide video therapy to clients within the State in which they hold their license. Cross State licensing exists, but is rare.

So if you're a client in Sylva, this list of Teletherapyists are licensed to provide therapy to you online (by phone, video or text based chat) because they are within your state. They are sorted nearest to furthest, with professionals in Sylva listed first.

Teletherapy via phone or video can be very similar to conventional in person sessions. The message is the same, even if the medium is different. There are some advantages in the form of convenience, lack of travel and being in comfort of your own home. Set against those, professionals find it more difficult to read non-verbal signals of their clients, and you may find you yourself can be more easily distracted.

Please discuss with the professional the app you'd like to use e.g. Zoom, Skype, FaceTime, Facebook Messenger or WhatsApp. Professionals sometimes prefer HIPAA tailored apps such as Zoom, VSee or Doxy.me.

How can I tell if a therapist is right for me?
Therapists in Sylva are able to work with a wide range of issues. They offer in person sessions as well as Teletherapy in Sylva

For example, if you're seeking a marriage counselor in Sylva you'll find that most therapists are trained in marriage counseling or couples counseling in Sylva and couples therapy. And they welcome families for family counseling in Sylva or family therapy in Sylva.
