Life is not easy and we can encounter things in our journey that bring about pain, grief and confusion and then make it difficult to experience the joys and pleasures that life also brings. I am experienced with assisting others in exploring what they have experienced and developing healthy ways to handle the feelings that surface. I truly am honored to work with those that invite me on their journeys!

During 10+ years as a therapist, I have helped clients find healing and understanding in challenging times. “I am not what happened to me, I am what I chose to become” this quote by Carl Jung exemplifies my philosophy working with clients. Together we can sort out what you have experienced and how it has impacted your core self and your relationships with others. We will work to develop a healthier view of you and the world around you so that life does not feel so heavy and bogged down with the past. You do not have to do this alone. It can be intimidating to reach out to a therapist but I hope you will reach out to see how I can help.

I hold licenses in North Carolina and Indiana and am accepting insurance in North Carolina only. Insurances are pending in Indiana so I am offering self-pay only at this time. I can provide clients with a superbill so they can work with their insurance to get reimbursed.
