I work with children on the autism spectrum and have special interest in working with clients in foster care or adoption.
I enjoy helping children and adolescents discover their potential and better understand and reduce the symptoms that brought them to therapy. We work collaboratively to learn new skills to apply to all areas of their lives as well as discovering a sense of peace. I work with parents to help find more effective parenting skills that lead to less anxiety, frustration, and anger about their children or their children's choices. Together, we can develop strategies to reduce household stress and work to implement these strategies in multiple personal areas.

A drowning amount of stress settles in while you hope your kid with Autism can just get through one day of school without a call home about their behaviors. Your kid’s anxiety shoots through the roof when overstimulated and it takes forever to calm down. Your frustration builds because nothing is working. You want your kid to be able to make friends, tolerate the word "no," build skills, or not have a meltdown when you serve dinner and the peas touch the fish. Typical parenting strategies aren’t working and it’s all just too much. People start blaming you as the parent and “I wouldn’t allow that in my house” becomes all too common.

I have broad experience working with family reunification as well as parents and children in foster care, LGBTQ+ children, those with learning disabilities, those on the autism spectrum, and those with anxiety and depression.
I absolutely love working with families. Whether your child is 3 or 18, I am here to help your family learn how to communicate in an effective and loving way, identify opportunities for growth, and walk with you as a team to help heal and strengthen bonds that seem disjointed in your family system. I do this through individual therapy with your child, family therapy with you and your child, and sometimes family therapy with just you and me. I use many different modalities such as Parent-Child Interaction Therapy (PCIT), Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT), Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Trauma-Focused CBT, and Play Therapy.

I specialize in anxiety and stress management, adjustment, Autism Spectrum Disorder, behavioral challenges, and depression.
Do you find yourself or your child worrying all the time about a variety of different things or feeling completely overwhelmed? What about feeling sad and being unable to carry on with the usual routine? Do you feel like something is "wrong" and like there is nothing you can do? Although it can be a hard step, counseling can help. Through counseling, we gain not only perspective but also the ability to call upon our own strengths in times of need. It requires vulnerability, openness, and determination, but I will be there to help you along the way.

What type of Greenville 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, it might be useful to first learn more about therapy types and modalities.
How to find a therapist in Greenville?
When looking to find a therapist, it is certainly important to consider 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.
