About me

Hello! I am a therapist and clinical social worker in North Carolina with 5 years of experience in the field. I have previously worked with individuals in an inpatient long-term setting and with children and families to maintain family preservation. I have worked with clients experiencing issues such as depression, anxiety, parenting problems, communication problems, and post-traumatic stress.

I place a high emphasis on the importance of maintaining unconditional positive regard towards clients, as maintaining a strong working relationship can be critical towards addressing issues and making therapeutic gains. All individuals deserve to be heard and feel validation. From there, we can explore these difficult issues together and address negative feelings that cause hardship. I believe that solutions to our problems lie within all individuals, as each individual in the expert in their own life. My background lies in motivational interviewing, and cognitive and solution-focused therapies.

Asking for help takes a lot of strength and vulnerability. If you decide to move forward, I will be happy to assist you in reaching your goals!

Kevin has helped me so much. My life has been hectic to say the least and he is helping me set healthy boundaries. My anxiety has always been extremely high but lately it has been a little less. I cannot thank him enough for listening to any and everything. Highly recommended!

So far, he has been fantastic. Patient, persistent without being overbearing, and he has considered everything I've sent him.
