Clear, Resolve, Transform. I help clients discover and resolve subconscious causes for emotionaI and behavioral difficulties. The Subconscious controls emotions, desires, memory, habits, thoughts, dreams, and automatic responses. One may consciously understand the value of eliminating problematic emotions, thoughts or behaviors but unless the Subconscious Mind is reached, enduring change is unlikely. I address the underlying subconscious blocks to living a clear and free life. I have effectively treated sexual abuse, trauma, grief, anxiety, depression, phobias, addictions and more. Issues are cleared, clients report being able to function with more energy and clarity. Relationships thrive and lives are transformed.

If you have been affected by stressors related to the current pandemic, help is available. Many people are feeling helpless and overwhelmed or are experiencing stress, anxiety or depression. The fact that you are here means that you are searching for relief from troubling thoughts or feelings or are looking for solutions to improve your life and increase coping skills in some way. Life has become much more chaotic, uncertain and stressful in recent months and many people need support in adapting to these major life changes. You are not alone in this struggle.

Hearing from the heart and seeking help with paralyzing personal challenges can be a daunting experience. Finding someone to connect with in the process of personal healing is half the battle to a solution. Keeping the person at the center of the therapeutic process is a goal for me. I have employed this approach for over 16 years of practice in Western NC. While this majestic mountain setting is a place of unique beauty it is not free of personal challenges that may need a calm and skilled approach to navigating life' s challenges.

*Accepting new clients* I view clients as whole people in the context of their lives - You are more than just a diagnosis. It's important to me to collaborate in setting goals, selecting an approach to therapy, and checking in along the way. I've worked with people from a broad range of backgrounds on anxiety, stress, relationships, life transition, depression, time management, and LGBTQ+ issues. I also provide relationship counseling for high-functioning couples who want to improve communication, feel more loved, work as a team instead of against each other, or just get unstuck from an old issue or pattern.

Do you dread going to pick up your kiddo from childcare? Are you worried that your child doesn't fit in or might even be asked to leave their center entirely? Young children use behaviors to communicate needs and many of us adults just don't understand their language. I am here to help you, your child's teachers and whomever else is an important person in your child's life work together to figure out what your child is asking for and how we can get them what they need. Humor and empathy (I have a spirited five year old myself!) go a long way in creating trusting relationships that will foster growth and change.

On the outside people see you as "put together" because you're gritty and tough even when you don't feel it. Yet inside its impossible to narrow down your symptoms to one category because you feel ALL of the things, maybe even all at the same time. Confusion, stress, pain, heartbreak, fear, loneliness, sadness and anger are your normal. Because when you've experienced hard, difficult things in your life, those feelings ARE normal. You're tired of "faking" being ok as life has become overwhelming. When was the last time you felt confident and present, able to be ENOUGH for yourself and others? Maybe its time to feel that again.

I strongly believe it's possible to realize your natural tendency toward balance and wholeness. Together we'll address roadblocks to your healing, accessing parts of you which may be sleeping, hiding, working less efficiently or effectively than they might. Our work combines practical strategies for immediate situations, and bringing acceptance and compassion to parts that carry old wounds, allowing relief and space for joy and greater life satisfaction to emerge.
