It is a courageous first step to consider counseling and I am honored to walk alongside those willing to journey toward emotional healing. We are all sorting through trauma, anxiety, grief and what I like to call the "let downs of life." As your therapist, we will develop a trusting and safe relationship where you can identify the areas in your life you wish would heal, change, and grow. We will become a team, and I will utilize various therapy modalities that best fit your needs. When counseling adolescents, I make a diligent, creative, and age appropriate effort to connect with them on a relational level in order to help them feel comfortable to express their feelings and thoughts. As I counsel adults I cultivate an environment that fosters trust and respect so they can navigate their emotions and thoughts safely. I am committed to this process and I love seeing people experience lasting freedom and change from negative experiences, relationships, and past memories.

More Info About My Practice

I accept self-pay payments. I am in network BCBSNC, Untied Health Care, Healthscope, MHN, and Tricare insurance, and I take care of all the billing for these insurance companies. For out of network insurances, I am happy to provide you with an invoice to submit to your insurance for reimbursement. Many insurance companies may reimburse you a proportion of my fees.

Theoretical Influences that Guide My Work

I integrate Cognitive Behavioral and Internal Family Systems (IFS) therapies from a Christ- centered and faith based approach to help young people and adults heal from anxiety, trauma, perfectionism, depression, grief, and toxic family dynamics. My Christian counseling style allows Christians to experience true grace, love, and redemption from Jesus in a safe nurturing way. I never force spirituality or faith discussions with anyone and I respect each person's own spiritual make up.

I also am a trained Trauma Focused Cognitive Behavioral therapist. I can provide therapy to children and adolescent suffering emotionally and behaviorally from traumatic experiences (abuse, neglect, witnessing domestic violence etc).
