Everyone has times in life where they feel disconnected, unsure, or unsatisfied. At times like these it can be difficult to reach out for support and to feel heard. I hope to offer a safe, nonjudgmental space to allow my clients to reach their goals and to live a healthier, more fulfilling life. I specialize in working with individuals, couples and families facing problems related to depression, anxiety, addictions, parenting concerns, relational distress, and life transitions. I primarily use Cognitive Behavioral Therapy in my practice, but draw from mindfulness-based therapies, Dialectical Behavioral Therapy, and the Gottman Method when working with my clients. I offer individual and family psychotherapy and counseling and provide primarily evening appointments to assist with offering appointment times that fit into busy lifestyles.

I have had the privilege throughout my career to work in both outpatient community mental health and private counseling practice settings. I began my career working for a small community mental health agency which was focused on providing individual, group, and family therapy for families affected by substance abuse issues. During my time with that agency, I was also able to work closely with adults and adolescents dealing with depression and anxiety. Upon my move back home to Raleigh, NC I began working with a nonprofit private practice dedicated to providing accessible low cost mental health services for adults, children, and adolescents. In that environment, I was able to focus on family and couple’s therapy and was able to provide evidence-based treatment to assist those families with building better communication and behavioral patterns for improved relational satisfaction.

Keeping a Routine When Life is Not Routine
