Verified clinicians have had their licenses confirmed by our staff at the time they create their profile. We also require all verified therapists keep their licensing information up to date in order to maintain verified status.
Send your prospective therapist a brief message about why you’re seeking support, your preference for in-person or telehealth services, and how you’d like to be contacted moving forward. Note: Answers to many common questions can be found on the therapist’s profile page. If this is an emergency, please call 911 or go to your nearest hospital.
I am a licensed clinical social worker in North Carolina dedicated to supporting adults coping with grief, loss and other significant life transitions.
I was drawn to grief work after the death of my mother from cancer when I was seventeen, and the desire to more deeply understand and making meaning out of my experiences. Prior to beginning a private practice, my professional career has included work as a nursing home social worker, a hospice social worker and a hospice grief counselor. I approach grief not as a problem to be solved, but rather as a natural, human response to loss, and, as writer Jane Brody describes, "a process to be tended and lived through in whatever form and however long it may take."
I offer a safe, accepting and nurturing setting for exploring the complexity of changes, challenges and emotions that may accompany times of transition, loss and uncertainty in our lives. My counseling style is person-centered, deepening conversation to discover and honor one's inherent wisdom. Our work together may incorporate mindfulness and self compassion practices, expressive arts, as well as the use of writing and symbolic ritual as a means of expression, release and healing. I believe it is vital to make space for acknowledging and exploring the painful aspects of loss and change, while also inviting room for possibilities of healing, regrounding and reconnection to life that, although forever changed by loss, can still have meaning.
