My Approach to Helping

I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker (LCSW) based in North Carolina with 15 years experience helping people to experience all that life has to offer. I have experience working with the geriatric population as well as their caregivers, depression, anxiety, trauma, abuse, dealing with change, and domestic violence. An area of interest that I specialize in is post-abortive therapy. I have a background in Christian counseling but offer non-judgmental, caring guidance to those individuals that I see. My approach is solution-focused, client-centered, and strengths-based relying heavily on Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT). I also focus on Reality Testing Therapy.

When working with clients, my desire is to provide a warm, welcoming environment where my clients feel comfortable discussing anything they need help with. My goal is to create an experience that is genuine, caring, and safe. I believe that you are the expert in your story and that your story is important. You have the ability to overcome life's challenges and I am just the vehicle to help you do so. It is my pleasure to meet you and start on the journey to better mental health.
