I grew up all over and then went to school in the lively, charming, & historical Boston area. I loved my time at Holy Cross and Boston College but when I had enough of the winters, the high rent, and 5th floor walk up apartment, I moved south to be closer to my family. I've loved living in Charlotte since 2000. I'm a Licensed Clinical Social Worker specializing in individual therapy for adults and have maintained a private practice in the Elizabeth neighborhood since 2009.
With over 20 years experience as a therapist, I serve as private practitioner working with a broad spectrum of clients. Among my areas of expertise are depression, anxiety, and substance use disorders.
I have presented at national conferences and to general audiences speaking on the topics of humor for stress management.
I am an interactive, solution-focused therapist. My therapeutic approach is to provide support and practical feedback to help clients effectively address personal life challenges. I integrates complementary methodologies and techniques to offer a highly personalized approach tailored to each client. With compassion and understanding, I works with each individual to help them build on their strengths and attain the personal growth they are committed to accomplishing.
I had a fear of public speaking until I joined Toastmasters in 2010. I went from being terrified every time I went to speak to entering speech contests and competing at the state level! Let me help you overcome your fears and challenge yourself too.
