Therapy should be a collaborative process where you are guiding your healing process as I walk alongside you, providing interventions, strategies, and new skills to assist you in achieving your goals. One of the biggest lessons I have learned is that we do not exist in a bubble, there is a cause and effect that occurs in every relationship big and small which can have a ripple response at home, work, friendships, church, and school. When trauma occurs, it becomes a profound development not only on the individual but also their loved ones and can affect every aspect of their lives. I specialize in working with adolescents, families, and couples to communicate and relate in a more effective, harmonious manner. I am trained in the use of many different models including EMDR, TF-Cogntitive Behavioral Therapy, Emotionally Focused Therapy, Gottman Couples Therapy, and Dialectical Behavior Therapy, utilizing each depending on the need of the unique client system.
Hi! Thanks for taking the time to invest in yourself and learn more about me. I am a North Carolinian, born and raised. I graduated from Abilene Christian University with a Masters of Marriage and Family Therapy with a concentration in trauma therapy in 2019 and my Bachelors in Family and Community Services from East Carolina University in 2002. Prior to obtaining my masters, I enjoyed a career in retail management and as the Director of Children and Youth for an area church. When not seeing clients I love spending time with family, friends, and traveling to see this beautiful world.
Feel free to contact me to explore if we are a good fit to work together towards your healing!
