My approach to therapy is collaborative and supportive, based on the idea that providing a safe, nurturing environment within the context of a meaningful relationship is key to promoting positive change and growth. My experience working with adults, adolescents, and children in outpatient and inpatient settings, plus my time as a public school teacher, informs my work, and has allowed me to develop a richer understanding of the various needs of individuals and families.  I’m currently completing my Supervision toward Clinical Licensure.

Whether you are struggling with anxiety, depression, stress, life changes, relationship issues, parenting concerns, or other emotional difficulties, consider if psychotherapy may help you to better understand and overcome these challenges. Don’t hesitate to reach out. We can talk and help make sure that you feel comfortable with my style and approach.

I offer both short-term and long-term psychotherapy in order to best address the areas of concern, healing, and growth that bring you to therapy in the first place. I value working with clients diverse in cultural and ethnic background, sexual orientation, and religious affiliation.

I earned my Master of Social Work (MSW) from UNC Chapel Hill and completed training at the UNC Psychiatry Child and Adolescent Outpatient Clinic in addition to the UNC Psychiatry Wake Pediatric Behavior Clinic.
