Pronouns: she, her, hers

Blue hair, don’t care!

An avid Duke fan, once I added the blue streak to my hair several years ago during the NCAA tournament, there was no turning back! Plus, it’s 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 am a National Board Certified Counselor and Licensed Clinical Mental Health Counselor and Licensed Clinical Mental Health Counselor Supervisor. 

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 ten years of experience working with individuals (adolescents, teens, and adults), couples, families, and groups. In my work with adolescents, I firmly believe in incorporating family members/parents to promote continued growth and empowerment within the family system. 

My hope is for you to experience authentic connection and laughter so that you can 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.

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 at Yale University

I have an awesome husband who loves corny dad jokes and triathlons. We have two super fun and spunky daughters, ages 7 & 9. I love to sing (especially a cappella!), play the piano, cycle, go to plays and concerts, 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!
