My Approach

When living in a culture that praises self-reliance, it can be a difficult challenge to admit when outside help is needed. During these vulnerable moments, we may feel lost in our ability to navigate challenges or we may struggle to cope with emotional experiences. We all need guidance at times to move towards living authentically. I believe that therapy is a place where you can explore challenges, process experiences, reflect on deeper meaning, and identify solutions. I welcome individuals who are taking the step to seek out support and guidance through therapy. My approach to counseling is a collaborative effort between therapist and client, while placing focus on creating a safe, supportive environment. In this collaboration, I firmly hold onto the idea that you are the expert of your own situation and that therapy is a vessel that can guide and empower the experts to take control of their own lives. I use an integrative approach combining Dialectical Behavior Therapy, Mindfulness, and Cognitive Behavioral Therapy to build resiliency, highlight your strengths, identify effective coping strategies, and cultivate personal growth and life balance.

    During my time as a clinician, I have had the privilege of working with a diverse range of individuals, families, and groups from various walks of life. During my graduate work, I worked with survivors of domestic violence and sexual assault at the Interact agency in Raleigh as well as provided therapy services to the college student population at UNC Counseling and Psychological Services. In more recent years, I have devoted my time and passion to working with adolescents and adults struggling with eating disorders across multiple levels of care including, inpatient, residential, partial hospitalization, and intensive outpatient. As eating disorders are often accompanied with other mental health challenges, I have also worked with individuals managing anxiety, depression, personality disorders, adjustment, stress, relational issues, and life transitions.
