My Approach to Helping
Are you feeling emotionally worn out and frustrated with your marriage or your relationships? I recognize how hard it is to be in this place right now. Maybe you have tried everything you know to do, and it's still not working. When you’re in the hard places of life it can feel hopeless, but just you being here means that there is still a part you that believes things can be different. I would love the chance the work WITH you.
I want to help you change the direction of your story. I want to help you create a lasting, authentic, and fulfilling connection with others. I want to help you overcome the weight of shame and grow in self-compassion. I want to help you overcome the emotional and communication challenges that keep you from creating and maintaining healthy relationships. As your therapist, I will journey with you, believe with you, hope with you, laugh with you, be still with you, and encourage you.
I received my BA in Psychology from the University of North Carolina at Greensboro and my MA in Christian Counseling at Gordon Conwell Theological Seminary. I am trained in the Gottman Method for couples and marriage counseling. Email or call me today for a free 15 minute consultation.

Why Going to Therapy Does Not Mean You are Weak or Flawed
One question I see often is "How do I know if I need therapy?" My answer is that everyone should go therapy and at anytime. Therapy is not just for those times when you at rock bottom. Therapy can be used for preventative measures or to help you gain clarity about a specific direction in your life. No matter your reason for coming to therapy there is no shame in that decision. It take courage to be vulnerable and ask for help, and way to invest in you self love and self care.
