I am a Licensed Clinical Mental Health Counselor (LCMHC), National Certified Counselor (NCC) in North Carolina with certification in Grief and Loss as well as Trauma and Crisis. With over 20 years of professional clinical experience providing direct behavioral health services as well as educational/career counseling and parenting skills in private practice, educational institutions, and in the community, I have worked with children as young as 5, teens, adults and families to build healthy relationships, improve communication, reduce stress, anxiety and depression, build self-efficacy, process trauma/grief/loss, clarify educational/career goals, and build effective and loving parenting skills.
My approach to therapy is grounded in Adlerian theory with an emphasis on encouragement and improving relationships in our lives and with ourselves. We cannot control or change others, but can shape the life we desire for ourselves by our choices and ability to take responsibility for our actions. As we explore and process our own beliefs, motivation, and choices, we have the power to change our attitudes and behaviors for the purpose of improving relationships in all areas of our lives. As we move toward change, others in our lives may be encouraged to change.
I believe I can help you improve the quality of your life and your relationships if you’re willing to put in the work. Together, we can move toward your goals, at your pace, as you are ready. I believe in treating everyone with respect, sensitivity, and compassion. I will tailor our dialog and treatment plan to meet your unique and specific needs. Taking the first step to sign up for therapy can take courage, and I am proud of you for getting started!
Additional areas of focus: Family conflicts, Trauma and abuse, Parenting issues, Anger management, Self esteem, Career difficulties, Bipolar disorder, Coping with life changes, Coaching
Clinical approaches: Client-Centered Therapy, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Solution-Focused Therapy
