Sylva, NC 28779
I specialize in Christian counseling and strive to help everyone find purpose in their experiences, create a vision for healing and truly embrace their full potential. My approach for clinical work has always been to be present with each person and encourage them to use whatever trials they have experienced to become stronger and enhance their overall story. I genuinely believe none of us have to be defined by what has happened to us in life, but rather can use those experiences, good and bad alike, to become better versions of ourselves.

I am currently offering Teletherapy and limited in-person sessions. I enjoy working with all ages of clients and believe that anyone is capable of positive change. I view my clients as equal collaborators in the therapeutic process and therefore, take cue from their needs, strengths, and stated desired outcome during their time in therapy. Areas of focus include: trauma, PTSD, anxiety, personality disorders, gender and sexual identity, living with an intellectual or physical disability, social skills acquisition (particularly in cases of individuals with autism), addictions, pain management and strengthening family relationships.

Founded on a person-centered approach, I believe that the professional relationship is a large part of the therapeutic work. Although I integrate several evidence-based modalities including cognitive-behavioral, mindfulness, somatic, psycho-dynamic, & motivational interviewing interventions, I welcome any presentation for both adults as well as youth.

Talking about personal struggles is never fun; finding the right therapist to support and guide you can make the process successful. I focus on going at the client's pace building the therapeutic relationship that is essential to reducing barriers and accessing the individuals own strengths to heal. My training and experience enable me to support those with significant trauma, anxiety, depression, substance use, chronic pain and other mental health struggles that often feel hopeless. I work to empower my clients with knowledge and skills they feel comfortable with using outside of the office in various settings to reduce disturbance

You are doing life--going to work, to school--but it's not easy! And it's exhausting presenting as if all's OK all the time: to put on the smile, to muster the energy. But that little voice still whispers negativity in the back of your head: All. The. Damn. Time. You don't know how to take appreciation, much less see it in yourself. You don't know how to say no. And you just want some peace and the sense that you exist outside the needs of others.

I prefer email & text over voice call. I hope to provide a sense of safety, trust, and acceptance. I tend to work with clients who were once like myself, unsure why they never really "fit" into different settings throughout childhood and now adulthood. It can come as feeling a tiny bit different than those around you. Maybe you did well in school and had a couple close friends, but you don't understand why you feel overwhelmed by certain large environments, sounds, or even foods. You may know the word autism, but only think of it as Sheldon Cooper or Rain Man. It could be that you identify as queer and feel there is something else.

Partnering with others during their journey of healing through anxiety, trauma, substance use, and other issues is one of the fundamental beliefs I hold. Healing is a journey as a person navigates challenges from both within themselves and outside of themselves. Helping people integrate their faith into their healing is one of my specialties.

I enjoy working with clients who actively participate in their therapy. It is important to be ready to enter into therapy. The focus of therapy is on you not the others in your life - for after all you cannot change other people but rather the only person you can change is yourself. I can help you make the changes you want to make. Want to survive a trauma, stay sober, lose weight, interact better with others, recover from a loss, examine a troubled intimacy? This is what I do.
