About Me

I am a licensed clinical social worker in North Carolina who has worked with many couples over the past 10 years, addressing issues of trust, stress, grief, and communication patterns. I believe in being strength based, creating a safe environment for both individuals to express their concerns and establishing ground rules to be heard. I work collaboratively with couples in developing goals. My therapeutic approach includes various modalities of solution-focused, mindfulness of self and other, cognitive behavioral, family systems and psychodynamic. Each person brings their past history into the relationship which can create challenges in the relationship dynamics. I encourage a deeper understanding and respect for each other as we work to understand and resolve the challenges in the relationship.
