My Approach to Helping
I am a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist licensed in North Carolina with years of experience working with children, teens, adults, couples and families. I have worked with clients with a wide range of concerns including marital problems, depression, anxiety, relationship issues, parenting problems, career challenges, ODD and ADHD. I also have helped many people who have experienced physical trauma or emotional abuse.
My counseling style is warm and interactive. I believe in treating anyone with respect, sensitivity, and compassion, and I don't believe in stigmatizing labels. My approach combines cognitive-behavioral, solution-focused and narrative therapy principles and techniques. I will work collaboratively with you to ensure our dialog and treatment plan will meet your unique and specific needs.
It takes courage to seek for a more fulfilling and happier life and to take the first steps towards a change. If you are ready to take that step I am here to support and empower you.
I look forward to working with you!
