I am a Licensed Clinical Mental Health Clinician in North Carolina with over 10 years of experience working as a professional counselor. I have served children, couples, and families in a variety of settings. I focus on families coping with life’s challenges that arise from the challenges of balancing personal and career achievements. My goal is to foster health communication and problem solve issues that have weakened the bond between couples.
My counseling style is kind and compassionate. I believe in taking time to learn about each couple and fully understand what brings them into counseling. Marriage is a life choice that comes with its own challenges involving both people making it a unique process. I have years of experience in working with couples to solve problems for long term solutions.
It can be difficult and overwhelming to try and solve problems that have caused heartache. You and your partner are not alone in the journey to try again and live a happier life. I am here to help overcome these challenges and work towards a healthier life. I am available for live messaging therapy Monday-Wednesday (NOT video or phone sessions) and Saturday for requested video and phone on a case by case basis. Lets chat soon and make progress!
