11 years of experience

Hey there! I'm a licensed mental health counselor in North Carolina and certified in South Carolina. Helping people navigate through anxiety, adjustment issues, and depression is more than just a job for me—it's a passion. I genuinely want to see you live a happier, more fulfilling life and achieve the goals you've set for yourself. With over a decade of experience working with adults facing mental health and substance use challenges, I've seen firsthand how resilient people can be. I firmly believe that you're the expert of your own life. My role? To highlight your inherent strengths and help you build on them. My approach is all about focusing on what you're good at, rather than what you're struggling with. Together, we'll create a warm, supportive space where you can truly flourish and take control of your life. I'm currently open to new clients and accept a range of insurance plans including Blue Cross Blue Shield, Aetna, Cigna, and United Health Care. I also offer self-pay options. Plus, I provide online therapy sessions for added convenience.

What can clients expect to take away from sessions with you?

Your first therapy session is a foundational step where we create a safe and confidential space for you to share your concerns and goals. We'll go over some initial paperwork and discuss the therapy approach best suited for you. Think of this session as a two-way street: you'll get to know your therapist, and we'll begin to explore the challenges you want to address. It's a time for you to ask questions, clarify doubts, and set the stage for our therapeutic journey together. We'll wrap up by discussing next steps and maybe some immediate coping strategies. I'm looking forward to partnering with you on this meaningful journey toward well-being.

Explain to clients what areas you feel are your biggest strengths.

With over a decade of experience in the field, my greatest strength as a therapist lies in my empathetic and holistic approach to mental health. I've had the privilege of working with individuals navigating complex emotional landscapes, from anxiety and depression to grief, self-esteem issues, and anger management. But beyond the techniques and the years, what really fuels my practice is the genuine care and concern I have for each person who walks through my door. I believe in the power of the therapeutic relationship as a transformative force. I'm not just a passive listener; I'm an active partner in your journey towards emotional well-being. Through a blend of evidence-based methods and compassionate engagement, I strive to create a sanctuary where clients can explore, heal, and grow.

My treatment methods

Cognitive Behavioral (CBT)

Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) is a go-to approach for tackling issues like anxiety, depression, and anger. What's great about CBT is that it's backed by solid research and usually doesn't take years to see results. It equips you with handy skills to navigate life's ups and downs, pinpointing specific issues you're facing and helping you tackle them head-on. Plus, these are skills you'll keep for life, reducing the chance of old issues creeping back in. It's a versatile and empowering way to take charge of your mental health.
