Hello! I am a Licensed Professional Counselor and a Licensed Clinical Addiction Specialist. I have a master's degree in Christian counseling from Gordon-Conwell Theological Seminary. I have been working as a therapist since 2012, helping couples, individuals, and groups with relationship, substance abuse, and mental health problems, including anxiety and depression, grief and loss, dual diagnosis (co-occurring mental health and substance use disorders), and personality disorders. My clinical graduate experience also includes working at a long-term care facility with Carolinas Healthcare System and Forest Hill Church, where I worked extensively with pre-marital and married couples.

I feel comfortable working with people from a variety of ministry contexts, as well as people with no spiritual training or background. I take a respectful, holistic approach to my work, which values each person as a unique individual, created by God with a purpose for their life.

I utilize multiple therapeutic modalities in my counseling, including but not limited to cognitive-behavioral, dialectical behavioral, emotionally-focused, solution-focused, and rational-emotive behavior therapies while emphasizing a spiritual perspective that treats the entire person.
