Areas of Focus
I enjoy working with children of all ages, as well as couples, families, and adult individuals. I work from a strengths perspective under the belief that clients come to us with many protective factors and strengths that, once uncovered, can assist them in working through life’s difficulties.
Why I love what I do
I love helping clients discover the best version of themselves. I believe that clients are self-determined and are the best experts in what they need and want. The experience of pain and stress often creates a mental block in clients being able to access their inner strengths. I love to hold a mirror for clients and show them all the ways that they have already learned how to thrive in life and help them regain that inner confidence to achieve their goals.
I have a master’s degree from the University of Maryland, School of Social Work. I hold a full social work license (LCSW) in the state of North Carolina. Prior to joining private practice, I spent many years in community mental health, substance abuse treatment, and the school system.
What i do
I enjoy exercise and fitness. I have been a runner for many years competing in multiple marathons and half marathons. I believe physical fitness is a key ingredient in mental fitness. I also enjoy spending time with my family, being outside as often as I can, and reading inspirational and self discovery books.
