I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker and a Licensed Clinical Addiction Specialist – Associate in North Carolina, where I have worked since completing my education. As a therapist, I have worked in both outpatient mental health/substance use treatment clinics and inpatient settings. Over the years, I have worked with individuals who experience challenges with symptoms related to depression, anxiety, trauma, and substance use. In working with clients, I utilize an eclectic range of skills and tools, but typically find that solution focused skills, cognitive behavioral techniques, and motivation interviewing are useful to a wide range of individuals. Whether we are addressing the thoughts that might be enforcing anxiety, working on a wellness action plan, or creating a relapse prevention plan for substance use, I practice from a recovery-model prospective, which offers that everyone has the ability to recover and achieve wellness. In working with clients, I have utilized Dialectical Behavioral Therapy, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Seeking Safety modality, and Wellness Recovery Action Plans.
Regardless of what area we might focus our attention on or what techniques we might use, I always believe in being compassionate and empathetic, honest and warm. As someone who will walk alongside you on your journey to wellness, I believe that therapy is a collaborative process. My goal is to provide you with support that is specifically tailored to your strengths and needs. Moving towards wellness can feel like a daunting task, but I am here to offer my support as you begin your journey.
