My Approach to Helping

Seeking a therapist is probably not what you felt like doing when you woke up this morning. And yet, who wants to feel stuck, overwhelmed, confused or in some form of "pain" for longer than is necessary? Fortunately, it is most definitely possible to partner with a respectful and competent therapist to sort out and work through difficult situations or complex problems. It is okay if you do not know exactly where to start. The therapy process can be structured in such a way that you get a chance to review all the areas of your life that may be affecting your situation, while we develop a mutually agreed upon plan for addressing your concerns. All throughout, you get to decide which processes - and what pace - works best for you. I have been a counselor for over 31 years now and have worked in a variety of settings. I find it most effective to integrate different strategies in a way that "fits" with your personal style and unique needs. These approaches include working with thoughts, feelings, physical body sensations, actions, and the connections between these areas. We can work very "practically" or we can blend in creativeexpressive techniques as well. Whatever is most comfortable or useful to you!

More Info About My Practice

I am an in-network provider with various insurance and EAP panels or can accept private pay if you are not able to utilize insurance benefits. Currently I am in-network with BCBSNC, Cigna, Aetna, Optum, Crescent Health Solutions, MHN and Tricare.

Specific Issue(s) I'm Skilled at Helping With

In addition to working with anxiety, depression, dealing with life adjustments and losses, serious mental illness, managing strong emotions, relationship concerns, addictions, changing habitual patterns, and various life challenges that require careful sorting and working through, I am also specifically trained to work with those who may be struggling with issues that are manifesting on a physical level - especially in relation to vocal expression.

How Psychotherapy Can Help

No matter how smart and capable we are, sometimes sharing with another caring person -who is able to listen deeply and intelligently - can make all the difference. Sometimes we just need a space to sort our minds without fear of judgement; sometimes we need guidance or techniques to assist us in moving forward.
