I am now accepting new patients with expanded office hours. I am passionate about helping people move forward in their lives and from feeling stuck to being more aware of what is holding them back. I provide my clients with the tools to move forward and to face their fears and lack of belief in themselves. I use a non-judgmental space, allowing you to share concerns, set up goals and to find solutions. Are you feeling that you are not the person that you really can be? Are you anxious? Feeling limited? Are you unable to move past disappointing events or relationships? You no longer need to struggle alone.

Shame and guilt often get confused. Guilt is the feeling that “You DID something wrong.” Shame essentially says, “YOU are wrong.” Shame is the voice that tells you are “Wrong”, “Not good enough” or “Inadequate.” All. The. Time. One of the reasons people don't go to therapy is because of shame. And, as painful it is to feel this way it often feels harder to work through it. This is where I can help.

Through therapy, we can heal pain and enjoy a sense of aliveness and wholeness. It takes alot of courage to choose to go into therapy and I applaud those who do. We release negative thoughts and beliefs about ourselves that we have carried and learn to replace them with positive and affirming ones.

As a therapist I feel honored to support and be with others in their evolution through emotional and relational challenges to a place of greater wisdom and connection with themselves and others. All humans deserve and need a safe place to explore our inner worlds, identifying areas for growth, learning new skills to approach challenges, and receiving support on our unique healing journeys. I believe deep transformation and liberation are possible when people feel supported by a caring and grounded therapist who is not only experienced and skilled but also genuine and committed to their own growth as a person.

Life is full of change and the unexpected. Have you been blindsided by one of the many curveballs life can throw at you? Do you feel overwhelmed, lost, or directionless? Realigning after a huge change- be it the loss of a loved one, separation/divorce, job change, health shift, or even college graduation- can be a challenging process. I love to help people adjust, grow, and transform though these shifts, seeing the forest through the trees to come to a fuller, more centered perspective on all that life still has to offer. Finding our way back to peace can be demanding and we could all use some support in this process.

I have always gained great satisfaction from helping people feel happier and in learning more effective ways to achieve more fulfilling lives. Those clients who are eager and open to learning more about themselves in order to achieve these goals benefit most from my approach as a therapist. I often focus, therefore, on insight, meaning, and symbols (including dream interpretation)in order to help clients establish a more positive and accepting perspective of themselves and others. In therapy, I work with obstacles against achieving these goals that include anxiety, depression, addictions, anger, and interpersonal and relationship issues.

Psychodynamic Therapists
Psychodynamic therapy in Durham, also known as insight-oriented therapy, evolved from Freudian psychoanalysis. Like adherents of psychoanalysis, psychodynamic therapists believe that bringing the unconscious into conscious awareness promotes insight and resolves conflict. But psychodynamic therapy is briefer and less intensive than psychoanalysis and also focuses on the relationship between the therapist and the client, as a way to learn about how the client relates to everyone in their life.

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

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