About me

I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker in North Carolina. I have 35 years of agency experience working with adults in individual and group therapy. I practice client-centered therapy with a problem solving and skills training approach. I provide a very supportive and validating environment at all times with my clients. I like to begin by assessing and exploring along with you what you are experiencing as difficulty and what you feel you need or want in the counseling experience. This process continues as long as we work together.

I will also introduce skills training practices to help in coping with and responding to your areas of difficulty. These skills will help you gain strength in developing focus, relaxation, and interpersonal skills, and reducing anxiety, distress, and emotional upheaval. We will also focus on problem-solving skills and making plans or choices when needed.

Please call 911 for local emergency services. You can also call 1-800-273-TALK (8255) to talk to someone right away

A little about me- I received my first degree in Music as a Guitarist before going on to get a psychology major and then a Masters In Social Work Treatment from the University of Tennessee. My work experience has been in community mental health centers and community health centers in Raleigh/Durham, NC.

I look forward to working with you when you are ready to start exploring.
