About me

I am an seasoned therapist offering my clients assistance on a variety of issues including anxiety, depression, life transitions, grief and loss, and relationship concerns. My approach is collaborative and I work to create a supportive, accepting space where people feel heard, valued, and empowered. I use a range of therapeutic techniques and strive to offer a highly personalized approach tailored to individual needs.

I am married and the mother of 2 adult children. I have 3 dogs and enjoy nature and good company.
I am passionate about social justice, my work and making the world a better place. I am an anti-racist, anti-sexist, and LGBTQIA+ affirming clinician.
Education: MSW, Simmons School of Social Work, Mental Health specialization.
License: North Carolina Licensed Clinical Social Worker (LCSW) #C003042
I am currently a provider with Blue Cross Blue Shield of North Carolina.
I am also a fee for service (private pay). If you have another insurance and would like to use your out of network benefit, I can provide you with a Super Bill to submit to your insurance provider.
