My approach to therapy is collaborative, as I believe a solid therapeutic relationship is essential in helping you gain insight and thrive in your life. I want you to feel as though you are in control. My aim is to support each person through their own personal journey. I focus on concepts of trust and creating a safe environment, so you feel free to process thoughts, develop healthy coping skills, and focus on reducing, managing and eliminating symptoms. Therapy is individualized and determined by each person’s needs and goals. I emphasize open and honest communication while maintaining a non-judgmental approach throughout treatment.

My experience ranges from working in a community-based mental health and substance use agency in Eastern North Carolina to private practice here in Raleigh. I am comfortable working with adolescents, young adults, and adults. I use therapeutic modalities such as motivational interviewing, cognitive behavioral therapy and person-centered therapy, while also having intensive training in Acceptance & Commitment Therapy and Dialectical Behavior Therapy. I have experience working with individuals experiencing depression and/or anxiety symptoms, low self-esteem, mood disorders, addiction, and emotion regulation.
