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/ADHD/LD, I can help. I trained at Duke Child Guidance, Children's Psychiatric Institute, Dorothea Dix Child Psychiatry, and the NCSU Counseling Center, so I am experienced with developmental issues across the life span. I offer individual therapy (all ages), assessment/treatment of ADD/LD (all ages), and couples, marital and group therapy for adults.
My goal is to help you improve the quality of your life. My adult therapy groups learn and practice skills/tools to improve relationships in family, work, and social settings. I help adults, teens, and children identify, treat, and manage ADD/ADHD/LD issues that interfere with learning, performance, and productivity at work, school, or at home.
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.
