I work from the idea that all of our life experiences are opportunities to discover ourselves. The road to peace, health, healing, purpose, meaning, and happiness is learning how to allow and be more of YOU, and less of who you think you should/ need to be. You and I will process your story, get to know your patterns, see what is getting in the way, and ultimately help you feel empowered and inspired.

Life is hard enough under normal circumstances, but especially so when we experience emotional pain stemming from unresolved issues from our past. Profound sadness, loneliness, isolation, alienation, anger, shame, and feeling misunderstood, abused, or neglected are some of the common distress signals that bring people into therapy. It can make all the difference to talk about whatever difficult thoughts, feelings, and past experiences you bring to the table, in an environment that is safe, non-judgmental, exploratory, and confidential.

According to Mental Health America (AMA), before COVID-19, data shows that over the past 3 years there has been a steady increase in the number of youth and adults struggling with anxiety and depressive symptoms and there continues to be an unmet need for individuals to receive proper care. AMA states, since the onset of COVID-19, the number of people looking for mental health services has “skyrocketed.” This past year has been painful for so many on so many different levels. If you're seeking balance amidst a myriad of uncertainties, let's connect. Therapy is not just another obligation. It's a gift to yourself and you deserve it!

If you are having the same arguments over and over again, you are not alone. I will be with you every step of the way. I use Emotionally Focused Therapy for Couples to interrupt repetitive Cycles where one person reaches out in frustration, causing their partner to withdraw and hide out. Couple Therapy doesn't have to be torture, and there doesn't have to be a "bad guy". I have helped couples with a range of issues from Domestic Abuse to infidelity to communication issues. I even use humor sometimes, but we don't waste a moment! I welcome couples who have been in couple therapy before and have almost given up.

If you're overwhelmed, anxious, or feel you've lost your way, therapy can help. You can take your power back. I help people who have experienced trauma and/or stress regain control of their lives. Extreme stress (trauma) can make it hard to cope and move past the experience. Circumstances like personal crisis, injury/pain (physical and emotional), and helplessness make it feel difficult to move forward. You've survived the traumatic event; you can heal and improve your life! I can walk with you so you're not alone.

I am accepting new cIients. I believe we all have times in our lives when we can become overwhelmed and may need help from another person. If this is your first time seeking help, it can be intimidating to choose a therapist and begin the journey to healing. My goal is to help you explore challenging areas of your life, examine relationships, and support life transitions. I work with clients who are experiencing anxiety, depression, trauma, grief and loss, substance abuse and life transitions. No matter where you find yourself in your life journey, I promise you will be welcomed and provided with compassionate support.

There are a lot of new pressures in your world right now. Things are changing quickly and there's a lot of uncertainty. "What if I crumble under all of these pressures?" You appear calm on the outside but on the inside you're wondering if you're really cut out for this. Anxiety about all of the uncertainty and your ability to manage it is real. It makes it difficult to think clearly and perform effectively, let alone be present in your day to day life. What can you control during these times of sudden change? You're ready for a mindset change - to go from reacting to taking charge of your life in this new environment.

Finding the right therapist is an important and sometimes difficult process. I suggest an initial consultation for you to meet me, discuss your concerns and get a sense of who I am and our connection. My approach is nurturing, mindful and responsive to your unique situation. I emphasize self-reflection and understanding over pathology and believe that therapy works best as an active partnership. I will be doing my part well if you feel you can safely explore anything that comes up for you in our time together.

Through my 27 years of experience working with individuals of all ages and backgrounds in a variety of settings, I have realized that a one-size-fits all model of treatment is not the most effective method of providing support and assisting with change. My therapeutic approach is grounded in the latest research on human and brain development, trauma and attachment, as well as the power of unspoken words and actions. I specialize in working with women, going through transitions or relationship trauma, children, teens with emotional and behavior problems and their parents who struggle with divorce, co-parenting and parenting skills.

Does it feel like your body is on overdrive - tense, fearful, unsafe, unrested - like it sometimes has a mind of it's own and is totally out of your control? At times life feels paralyzing and pleasure feels out of reach? I believe that listening more deeply to the body and mind is a critical ingredient for lasting change and finding more control in your life. Through deep therapeutic work and sharing ones story we have the potential to feel less impacted by the past and create a greater capacity to experience joy.

Life is a funny thing. And often terribly complicated. During our journey in this world, we often face challenges that can feel too big or ongoing. Whether it’s with chronic feelings of anxiousness, depression, emptiness, issues about sexual orientation, gender, or ethnicity, relationship conflict, sleep disturbances, substance misuse, school or work issues, or any combination of those, many of us struggle silently. But you don't have to. It can help to work with a therapist with a deep understanding of what it’s like with some of those struggles and who is passionate about helping others learn to thrive despite these adversities.

The poet, Rumi, wrote: "Don't turn away. Keep your gaze on the bandaged place. That's where the light enters you."

An out-of-network Therapist in Asheville has not agreed to any set rate with your insurer. Your plan may require higher co-pays, deductibles and co-insurance for out-of-network care and you may need to pay the difference between your insurer's allowed amount and what the Therapist charges.

The costs for an Asheville out-of-network Therapist also depend on your type of plan:

In a Health Maintenance Organization, or HMO, or Exclusive Provider Network, or EPO, you generally have to pay the full cost of any out-of-network care.

In a Preferred Provider Organization (PPO) or Point-of-Service (POS) plan, you will usually have to pay a higher deductible and or a higher co-pay plus a higher percentage co-insurance plus, the difference between the allowed amount and your provider's actual rate.

How can I tell if a therapist is right for me?
Therapists in Asheville are able to work with a wide range of issues and communities, including the BIPOC community in Asheville. They offer in person sessions as well as Teletherapy in Asheville

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