I am a licensed clinical mental health counselor (LCMHC) in North Carolina. I have been been counseling for over 30 years. My counseling experiences include career, lifestyle development, anxiety and coping issues. My focus on positive psychology guides to practical options to feeling better. It is my belief that we search for meaning in our lives. This is why we feel or do the things we do. I believe the intrinsic value of avoidance, suffering, and shame are symbols of hidden issues unresolved. The present conditions we face most often, are a result of our choices, as we search for meaning in our lives. I utilize an eclectic approach to assisting those seeking my assistance. Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Brief Solution Focused Therapy, and Existential Therapy counseling has been methods helpful to my clients.
As a LCMHC In the state of North Carolina, my goal is to offer healthy coping thru motivational techniques that inspire personal growth. I hold a Master of Arts in Counseling from Webster University, with Post Master training in doctoral course work in Psychology.
I look forward in working with you to achieve your goals.
