About me

Damn Life is hard! We all need help navigating it sometimes. I am licensed in North Carolina and South Carolina with 4 years of professional work experience. I have experience in helping clients with stress and anxiety, lgbtq+ related issues, trauma and abuse, & motivation, self esteem, and confidence. I believe that you are the expert of your story and that you have many strengths that will assist you in overcoming things that challenge you. It takes courage to seek out a more fulfilling and happier life and to take the first steps towards a change. I am here to support & empower you in that journey. I'm not your average therapist and my methods can be strange but, isn't it time for something new?
