About me

I am a Licensed Clinical Mental Health Counselor (LCMHC) in North Carolina with 10 years of professional work experience. I have experience in helping clients with sex and intimacy related issues, stress and anxiety, work/performance stress, relationship issues, MK/expat issues, family relationships, sex and sexuality concerns, faith deconstruction, postpartum concerns, self-esteem issues, & parenting issues.

I have my Master's of Science in Clinical Mental Health Counseling from UNC-Greensboro, and have since pursued further training and education in several areas, including sex therapy, couples counseling, and postpartum issues. 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!
