More Info
  • I began my professional career in North Carolina State Government, with the Department of Juvenile Justice and Delinquency Prevention in 1996 for eight years. In 2004, I transitioned to the mental health/substance abuse field where I held various positions within public mental health agencies. I have been a Licensed Professional Counselor and a Licensed Clinical Addiction Specialist since 2015. I became intensively trained in Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT) through Behavioral Tech, the company started by the founder of DBT, Dr. Marsha Linehan, in 2015. In the same year, I became a Certified Hypnotherapist. These experiences, licenses and certifications has laid the foundation of me dedicating my professional life in helping people reveal the best versions of themselves.

    My ideal client is an adult person that may be struggling with anxiety and worry, sadness, relationship difficulty, irritability and frustration, work dissatisfaction, low self-worth, and/or addictions. I believe that addiction and mental illnesses are diseases similar to medical diseases. According to the Journal of Psychiatry & Neuroscience (May, 2015), mental illness is like any other medical illness; this statement implies that mental illness has a biological basis just like other medical illnesses and should be treated in a similar manner. My treatment approaches to mental illness and substance use disorders are Evidenced-Based.

    I believe therapy is most powerful when at least two knowledgeable individuals are working together towards a common goal. You are the expert on you, you know yourself better than anyone else, and I. Together, we can help you overcome barriers that is getting in the way of you becoming the best, most positive, most successful, happiest and healthiest version of you. I am looking forward to working with you and I am honored to chose to work with me!
