I specialize in helping people cope with invisible stressors, like chronic illness , substance use, mood and anxiety issues, self-esteem, and parenting and family dynamics.
The demands of work, parenting, and life in general have become overwhelming and you feel like nobody "gets you." Let's talk about this! To the outside world, you look "fine," but inside, you feel downright exhausted, and you no longer want to pretend everything is okay. Your stress level has reached an all time high. Maybe you're experiencing "Superwomen Syndrome", prioritizing others but rarely finding time for yourself. Maybe you're feeling invisible and misunderstood. You're ready for change. Whatever curveball life has thrown you, you want relief!

ADHD is more than distraction or being unable to sit still. It affects every aspect of our lives. Maybe you're struggling with procrastination, time blindness, feeling "edgy," forgetting things, missing deadlines. You call yourself lazy but you just can't get moving to get things done. Maybe you've been told you're too sensitive- feeling easily hurt or angry. Those of us w/ADHD often feel shame and embarrassment from our actions- like saying things we regret or acting impulsively. We constantly feel like failures, always trying to hide our embarrassment. We'll often pretend we're fine and push through, but life feels overwhelming.

Part of being human is experiencing a range of emotions... and they're not all rainbows and sparkles. Going through difficult times is a part of life. For most of us, we need or at least benefit from gaining support through those times. And, while it may be helpful to talk to a trusted friend or family member, therapy offers something different. Therapy gives you a totally safe place where you can explore your thoughts and behaviors with a trained professional who is non-biased. It is also a place where you can learn strategies to help you better deal with your challenges, set goals, and gain new perspectives. How great is that!?

I believe that everyone deserves to be heard and respected especially during difficult times. Although family and friends can provide love and support, sometimes we need someone who can be totally objective. I strive to provide a safe, supportive, and nonjudgmental environment where you can express needs and leave feeling heard and empowered to make positive changes in your life. Each person enters therapy with a unique set of issues and needs. Together we will develop a treatment plan that is right for you. My goal is to help you heal, grow and discover strengths you didn’t even know you had.

What type of Myrtle Beach 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 Myrtle Beach?
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.
