I am a Marriage and Family Therapist licensed in North Carolina with 18 years of experience working in a variety of settings to include outpatient mental health settings, family medicine residencies, military installations, and inpatient behavioral health units providing individual therapy, group therapy, and couples therapy to children, adolescents, adults, and families. I have worked with clients with a wide range of concerns including depression, anxiety, relationship issues, parenting problems, career challenges, self-esteem, motivation, and life transitions.
My counseling style is warm and empathic. I believe in treating everyone with respect, sensitivity, and compassion. I don't believe in stigmatizing labels. My approach combines a narrative lens with solution focused, motivational interviewing, and mindfulness techniques. I will collaborate with you and tailor our dialog and goals to meet your unique and specific needs.
It takes courage to seek out a more fulfilling and happier life and to take the first steps towards a change. My goal is to help each person make big changes doing small things. I am here to support and empower you.
I look forward to working with you toward a happier, healthier life!

I just started working with Christy & she’s been very helpful. She’s provided helpful worksheets that I’ve done & can look back on for reference. She responds to me quickly & let’s me know when she’ll be available. So far it’s been a great experience & seems to be helping me out.
