Making the choice to start therapy can be scary! I believe that this is your mental health journey and you made the first step (which is HUGE). Be proud of yourself! Now I would like to join you on your mental health journey. Maybe you are feeling anxious, depressed, worried about the future, grieving the loss of a loved one or life “before Covid” or even stressed about daily life. I work best with clients who are ready to “do the work” and regain control of their mental health. I strongly believe a person’s environment impacts their overall health. Therefore, I like to “see the bigger picture” when working with a client’s mental health needs. After all, you are more than a mental health diagnosis. I believe in a person-centered and trauma focused approach to care. In our work together, I will utilize interventions such as positive psychology, cognitive behavioral therapy, and other evidence-based therapeutic practices. In our work together, I utilize tools and resources such as work from Brene Brown, attachment quizzes, The Five Love Languages, The Enneagram, and other inventories to build on self and our work together.
I graduated with a Bachelors in Social Work from The University of North Carolina at Greensboro and earned my Masters of Social Work from The University of North Carolina at Charlotte. Through both experiences, I was able to work in a variety of settings including Community Mental Health and Integrated Behavioral Health through Atrium Health Care System.
I published two books validating those who have experienced Domestic Violence and align with my interest in Medical Trauma. Unstuck: The Reality of Healing and Living Through an Abusive Relationship and My Medical Appointment Notebook. This is part of my work in advocating for those who have lived experience and providing survivors and those who experience chronic illness a voice.
If you are ready to take the next step in your mental health journey, I would be honored to meet you!
Meet my co-therapist, Brody. You will usually find he sleeps in my lap during session or randomly peeks his head up to see what's going on. But no worries, he's a great support and can't wait to meet you!
