I am a license clinical social worker and a license clinical addiction professional in North Carolina and Florida with over 25 years of experience working as a psychotherapist. I have worked with clients with a wide range of concerns including depression, anxiety, relationship issues, parenting problems, co-occurring disorders , career challenges and substance abuse issues. I also helped many people who have experienced physical trauma or emotional and verbal abuse.
My therapy style is warm and interactive. I believe in treating anyone with respect, sensitivity, dignity, and compassion. My approach combines cognitive-behavioral, person center, and rational-emotive therapy. I will tailor our dialog and treatment plan to meet your unique and specific needs.
It takes courage to seek a more fulfilling and happier life and to take the first steps towards change. If you are ready to take that step, I am here to support and empower you.
I look forward to working with you!
