"THE FIRST STEP IS THE HARDEST - MAKING A COMMITMENT TO YOURSELF, FOR YOURSELF."

ABOUT ME

I'm a therapist in Charlotte, North Carolina. I believe that every individual is capable of cultivating change in their own life. I am passionate about helping others along this path. I use a variety of methods and theories in a mixed approach that best meets the needs of my client. 

From personal experience, I know that it can be extremely intimidating to make that first step to reach out for help and contact a therapist.  I honor your bravery to make that first step and I encourage you to be relentless in your pursuit to find a counselor that is a good fit for where you are now.  Finding a good fit with a therapist can be life-changing, and it is my goal to encourage you in that process.

EXPERIENCE

I bring myriad life experiences to the table when helping clients. I have lived in various parts of the world, including Guam, Hawaii, Louisiana, France, Texas, Virginia, Massachusetts and North Carolina.  I served my country as an officer in the United States Air Force. I taught for a non-profit agency serving high-risk adolescents and I was a preschool teacher. I have worked as a legal marketing assistant. I currently work as a therapist at a local detox and psychiatric hospital.

 

I am a mom of three and an avid outdoors-person. I love reading, gardening, backpacking, playing soccer and running. I believe that life experiences have broadened my empathy and ability to connect to clients in a unique way.
