What is your style/approach to therapy?

I believe that therapy is a collaborative process starting with the the client and their strengths. My approach is empathetic and compassionate along with a good dose of humor when appropriate. I start where the client is and help them move towards their goals.

What does success look like in therapy? How will a client know that they are making progress?

Success is determined by the client. Self-awareness, positive gains and utilization of healthy coping skills and increased life satisfaction are key. A client feeling more hopeful, reporting more positive experiences and thanking me is a sign. A baseline assessment can be developed to help monitor progress.

If there was one thing you wish people knew about the therapy experience who might be hesitant to try it, what would that be?

Therapy doesn't have to be this big deal or scary. It is relating to someone in a safe space who is there to help you get what you want and need. This is a no judgement zone. Where else can you find that?

Work History

Don't just settle for surviving. You can learn to thrive! I moved from Michigan to NC in 2002 after realizing that sunshine and warmer climates were essential to my quality of life. I believe I have a unique trifecta of 33 years combining my clinical, clinical educator and Yoga Teacher hats to work with the whole person. I have been providing therapeutic services for adults with mental health challenges who want a better quality of life for themselves and their loved ones. I teach coping skills to benefit the client and to model for those they care about. I also help students and adults: Relax, breathe and be mindful, empower themselves, learn emotional regulation, increase mental, physical and emotional well-being, develop confidence and increase motivation for success.
