Make time for yourself.
Welcome! Do you sometimes feel that you not only have a full plate but rather a full platter? I strive to provide clients with a supportive environment to navigate life’s ups and downs and develop effective coping skills to manage it all.
I am a Licensed Professional Counselor Supervisor and have been in private practice since 2006.
I use a client- centered approach to therapy which focuses on the client's strengths and resources to achieve their goals in a non judgmental and accepting environment. I also utilize Cognitive Behavioral Therapy interventions when needed to achieve client goals.
In 2001, I earned my Master of Arts degree in Counselor Education from Wake Forest University. I have held certification as a National Certified Counselor (NCC) since 2001. I am a Licensed Professional Counselor in the state of North Carolina, and have held my license since March 4, 2005.
In July 2012, I completed a course to earn my credential as a Licensed Professional Counselor Supervisor which I received in December 2012. As a clinical supervisor, my role is to help you develop skills to become a competent clinician while completing the hours necessary for licensure. I view the supervision process as developmental in nature believing that supervisees gain competence as they move through the supervision process. If you are interested in Clinical Supervision, please contact me!
I have a strong interest in working with mothers through their journey from pregnancy to motherhood. I hope to help clients with navigating the transitions that occur with becoming a parent, the impact it has on relationships, and the importance of self care along the way. I have completed certification courses in Perinatal Mood Disorders and Maternal Mental Health with focus on Postpartum Depression and Anxiety. I am a Certified Perinatal Mental Health Professional (PMH-C) through Postpartum Support International.
Prior to staring my private practice, I worked for agencies and nonprofit organizations providing grief and loss therapy as well as working with clients coping with general anxiety and depression.
In 2018 I completed training to become a Board Certified - TeleMental Health Provider. Contact me for more information about TeleMental Health services!
I was thankful for the opportunity to record a two podcast series on postpartum depression and anxiety for SAS Work/Life Department.
The podcasts discuss how to identify signs and symptoms of postpartum depression and anxiety as well as treatment options and how relationships can be impacted by perinatal mood disorders.
This two part podcast, recorded with SAS Work/Life Department and Dr. Hilary Mandzik, discusses the different types of pregnancy loss, the impact pregnancy loss has on relationships and future pregnancies, and how therapy can help.
