I take the stance that there is nothing too big or too small to bring up and therapy is the place to unravel hidden things that have been tucked away. I have a heart for individuals and couples having a difficult time managing stress, dealing with loss and grief, anxiety, depression, or struggling to figure out relational conflicts. I primarily utilize an eclectic approach depending on a client’s needs and preferences and approach it from multiple modalities such as Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Acceptance and Commitment Therapy, Relational Therapy and Solution Oriented Therapy. These are framed inside a person-centered approach where you are the expert on your life, and I am acting mainly as a guide and source of non-judgmental support helping you locate blind spots and equip you with tools for the journey.
I have been involved with my church in Southeastern North Carolina for over a decade and am currently on staff in a leadership position. I moved to Northern California for several years while finishing my Bachelor’s in Psychology at Simpson University while simultaneously attending ministry school. Afterward, I served internationally as a missionary for several years then returned home to intern at a Christian Counseling retreat center in the mountains of North Carolina. After moving back to North Carolina, I completed my Masters in Social Work at the University of North Carolina Wilmington and became a Licensed Clinical Social Worker Associate (LCSWA). I enjoy utilizing faith-based life experience and clinical skills acquired in my education to support individuals interested in working from the intersection of psychology and faith. I would be honored to help you navigate through the challenges you are facing, encourage self-growth, and trust that God has great things ahead.
