Blue hair, don’t care!

An avid Duke fan, once I added the blue streak to my hair in 2015 during the NCAA tournament, there was no turning back! Plus, it has earned me a lot of cred with my adolescent clients 😉 While I grew up a Blue Devil and still bleed blue, I earned my undergraduate degree from Wake Forest University (Go Deacs!) and my Masters degree in Clinical Mental Health Counseling from UNC-Greensboro

I hold the following licensures/credentials:

  • National Board Certified Counselor
  • Licensed Clinical Mental Health Counselor and Licensed Clinical Mental Health Counselor Supervisor in North Carolina
  • Licensed Mental Health Counselor in New York
  • Professional Counselor Telehealth Provider in South Carolina
  • Board Certified TeleMental Health Provider

First of all, I am incredibly proud of our consortium of providers here at SCW. I trust each clinician 1000% and believe each provider is such an asset and brings incredible gifts to the community and to each client they serve.

I am committed to building a relationship with you in order to navigate your story. My counseling style is conversational and direct, balanced with genuine care in order to collaborate with you and assist you in getting closer to your goals. We tend to laugh a lot in session:)  Counseling goals may include changing your thinking, improving your mood, achieving balance, restoring relationships, reaching recovery, developing new skills, healing traumas, or finding ways to live wholly and genuinely. 

I have over twelve years of experience working with individuals (adolescents, teens, and adults), couples, families, and groups. My hope is for you to experience authentic connection and laughter in your life and for you to realize your worth and reach your potential individually and within your relationships! Amongst other modalities and counseling theories, I use EMDR as a primary intervention as appropriate. Along with using it in individual sessions, I also offer EMDR intensives (1/2 day // 3 hours).

I am one of a handful of providers in NC trained in Supportive Parenting for Anxious Childhood Emotions (SPACE). It is a parent-only therapy for parents of children and teens with anxiety, obsessive-compulsive disorder, sleep issues, and phobias. I received my training through Yale University. (NOTE:*I am not currently taking any SPACE clients*)

My dedication to serving shows up in frequent contributions as a mental health expert. You’ll find my freelance writing with my bylines in Southpark Magazine and Lux Lifestyle Magazine. I also frequently appear on WCNC and WBTV. I have also been featured on Global News and in Newsweek, Cosmopolitan, Insider, Parade, PsychCentralAxios, Medium/Elemental, &  Shondaland. I also just published my first book entitled Who You Callin’ Crazy?!: The Journey From Stigma To Therapy. I am passionate about showing up wherever I can to help normalize and elevate the dialogue around mental health!

I have an awesome husband who loves corny dad jokes and triathlons. We have two super fun and spunky daughters, ages 9 & 11. I love to sing (especially a cappella!), play the piano, cycle, go to plays and new restaurants, support organizations that fight social injustice and systemic racism, and watch sports (college basketball and golf — a given, since I’m from Pinehurst!)

I’m surrounded by amazing friends, including Joe Martinez (of Joe Martinez Photography) who is ridiculously talented and so graciously allowed me to use his work throughout this site!
