I provide individual, couples, family, and group therapy sessions. I have experience working with children and adults with mental health issues in various therapeutic settings. I am creative, dependable, and adaptable, and am dedicated to providing a supportive, safe, non-judgmental and empathetic environment to allow for the processing needed for people to move forward in the most productive and effective way.

My therapeutic approach includes helping clients identify and highlight their strengths as a way to process through trauma and life events, which also allows opportunity to focus on future needs and outcomes. I primarily use ACT (Acceptance and Commitment therapy), which is effective in treating a variety of symptoms including, but not limited to, anxiety and depression. It is a form of behavior and cognitive therapy aimed at assisting people in living a more rich and meaningful life by working toward acceptance of that which is out of personal control and committing to actions that improve and enrich the quality of life that person wants to lead.

I use interventions focused on teaching, guiding, and increasing flexibility to deal with painful thoughts and feelings effectively. By learning to step back or detach from unhelpful thoughts, worries, and memories, they can have much less impact and influence in an individual?s life. ACT also focuses on helping individuals clarify what is truly important and meaningful to them - i.e values ? and then using that knowledge to guide, inspire and motivate in order to facilitate change/growth in service of what is important to that individual.

I recently moved to North Carolina from Colorado in order to be closer to my family, and am excited to re explore that which North Carolina has to offer. I am a returned Peace Corps Volunteer, serving in St. Vincent and the Grenadines (2006-2008), which has contributed to my therapeutic style by expanding my social awareness. Knowing that each individual comes from varying backgrounds and experiences, I encourage people to bring in anything they feel is relevant about their background/upbringing that may be clinically relevant in our work together. Recognizing that each individual is an expert in their own life/experiences, I invite individuals to explore what has led them up to this point, and what direction they would like their life to go. It can be a difficult step to come in to therapy, and I appreciate your vulnerability in taking the first step. I look forward to meeting you and learning more about how we can use our time to work toward and empower change/growth in your life.
