In what ways does your personality influence your approach to therapy?
I have a lot of energy that I bring with me into my sessions. I encourage my clients to dig deep while still being careful to meet them where they are without pushing them entirely out of their comfort zone.
What do you think is the biggest barrier today for people seeking care?
There are several barriers that have significant impacts on people seeking help. There is a lack of awareness and knowledge on mental health and emotional intelligence, misinformation on what therapy is and what it costs, a distrust of the system from decades of bias and harm done to marginalized communities, feelings of shame or embarrassment, cultural barriers, financial barriers, etc,. All of these things can influence when or if a person seeks therapy.
If there was one thing you wish people knew about the therapy experience who might be hesitant to try it, what would that be?
That therapy is for anyone that is going through any phase of life. It can be for those who are grieving, it can be for those who are happy, and it can be for those who are lonely. Therapy, I believe, is about being heard and feeling connected to the human experience. There will always be something that we feel we are unable to talk about to our loved ones. A therapist is there to listen, to provide space for you to feel safe about saying what is on your mind without judgment.

East Carolina University’s Department of Addictions and Rehabilitation (DARS) recognizes the unique cultural differences between providing community mental health versus military mental health counseling services. In response to the emerging military culture in North Carolina, on January 2014, ECU approved the all-online 12 semester- hour Military and Trauma Counseling (MTC) certificate program.
