You're here, welcome! I am not sure what your needs are yet, but I am eager to hear, learn and embrace. Thank you for taking the first step in considering the option of therapy. I believe that it takes bravery to realize that help is needed and even more courage to take that first step in receiving it.
I want to help. Helping others discover their best selves is my lifelong dream and passion. I specialize in assessing psychological and emotional issues in adolescents, young adults and families. I believe that healing is a collaborative effort that requires caring for the whole person without judgment and I strive to support and guide my clients in that manner. My treatment methods, whether in-person or virtual, are dynamic and intentional. I create tailored treatment options for each of my clients’ individualistic needs and circumstances while producing unmatched results.
I have over 10 years of clinical experience in individual child and adolescent therapy, individual adult therapy, and family therapy. I have been fortunate enough to work with a range of populations within the mental health community. I am rostered through the North Carolina Child Treatment Program, a partnership between the Duke-UCLA National Center for Child Traumatic Stress; the Center for Child and Family Health; and the School of Medicine at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. I am currently qualified and trained to practice EMDR based therapy with adults, adolescents, and children.
