Hello! I am licensed in North Carolina, Iowa, North Dakota, and Florida. I have experience in helping clients with stress and anxiety, depression, coping with grief and loss, motivation, self-esteem, and confidence. I work with my clients to create an open and safe environment where thoughts and feelings can be shared without fear of judgment. It takes courage to seek out a more fulfilling and happier life and to take the first steps towards a change. Congratulations on getting to this very important step! I am excited to support & empower you in that journey.

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

In our first session I will ask some basic questions to get an overview of what brought you to therapy, some current symptoms, and any goals you may have for therapy. I will allow time for you to shared whatever you would like for me to know and allow time for you to ask any questions you may have. My goal is always to provide a relaxed environment, to destress not add ANY stress:)

What treatment methods and tools do you utilize?

I utilize several methods including motivational interviewing, solution-focused, Interpersonal, mindfullness, CBT, DBT, Psychoanalysis, Supportive, and Psychodynamic.

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

I enjoy working with all ages, diagnoses, and life struggles. I have extensive experience with adults and older adults and enjoy assisting in any challenges that may arise. No matter the age or symptoms we can work together so that you receive the quality of life that you deserve!
