About Me

I am a Licensed professional Counselor licensed in North Carolina and South Carolina. I have over 30 years of experience working as a psychotherapist in mental health facilities and private practice. I am Eagala certified and have been providing Equine Assisted Psychotherapy for 11 years. I have worked with adolescents, adults and couples and families with a wide range of concerns including depression, anxiety, grief, relationship issues, domestic violence, trauma and sexual trauma, self esteem and confidence issues and addictions.

My counseling style is direct, warm, and interactive. I meet clients where they are in their process and believe that clients have the best answers for themselves and need help in finding those answers. I have an eclectic approach which includes, Cognitive Behavioral, Client Centered, and Solution Focused modalities.

My hope is to assist others in working towards finding their best and authentic self.

Bobbie is a wealth of knowledge and experience. She has so many different ways of approaching the challenges that I present to her. She listens intently and I always feel seen and heard after our sessions. She has a compassionate and yet no nonsense way of delivering her messages that make me feel like I’m not being babied, but respected. I really enjoy my sessions with her.

I would like to thank Bobby for being super supportive and understanding. Spending time with her helps me to understand more about myself, and she provides me a great safe space to share my deepest thoughts :)

Bobbie is brilliant. She is kind, patient understanding and incredibly empathetic. I was a bit cagy about starting counseling and Bobbie helped me feel comfortable enough to be honest with her. I really value her perspective and insight. Since starting with her 2 weeks ago I have already changed my perspective on things and am less critical of myself because of the advice I have received.

Bobbie is the best. She is down to earth, real, and relatable. She empowers you, tells you what you need to hear, and gives you actionable tips and take always to work on.
