With degrees from Duke University (PhD) and UNC-Chapel Hill (B.A.), I have 25 years of experience working with adults, college students, adolescents, and children. If you struggle with anxiety, depression, mood swings, obsessive-compulsive behavior, relationship problems, and/or ADD/LD, I can help. I trained at Duke Child Guidance, the Children's Psychiatric Institute, Dix Child Psychiatry, and the NCSU Counseling Center, so I am experienced with developmental issues from childhood through adulthood. I offer individual & group therapy; couples & marital therapy, and psychological evaluations (ADD/LD assessments).

My goal is to help you improve the quality of your life. I work with adults, couples, adolescents, & children, and I offer 3 evening groups for adults to learn skills/tools to improve your relationships in social, family, and work settings. I can help you identify and resolve academic issues (ADD/LD) that compromise your academic and/or work performance.

As your psychologist, I want to help you heal the part that is hurting, and rediscover the part of you that is well. Whether you come to me with workplace challenges, family concerns, relationship problems, or social/personal issues, I am your partner in the healing process.
