About My Clients

I am most experienced in supporting women of all ages in achieving wellness. I enjoy working with people of all genders and sexualities as they navigate life transitions and explore identity. I also offer therapy for trauma, anxiety, and depression. I am trained in Perinatal Mental Health and work with women in prenatal, pregnancy and postpartum stages as well as supporting new parents in building systems and growing their relationship to accommodate the changes a baby can bring.

My Background and Approach

I hold a Bachelor's degree in Psychology and Master's degrees in Social Work and Public Health. I have been a Licensed Clinical Social Worker in North Carolina for 7 years. Throughout my education, trainings and career experiences, I have worked with adults, adolescents and children in treatment of trauma, depression and anxiety as well as on issues in relationships and family dynamics. I have tailored my education and training around women's and gender issues and appreciate the anti-oppressive nature of feminist theory. In therapy I take a holistic, collaborative approach to encourage balance and overall health as much as possible. I often use techniques rooted in Cognitive Behavior Therapy, Cognitive Processing Therapy, Trauma-Focused Therapy, Dialectical Behavior Therapy, and Mindfulness among others.

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

I believe every human life has value and deserves to be lived authentically with pleasure and purpose. I recognize and acknowledge my many privileges as an educated middle-class white woman and work hard to maintain that awareness in all parts of my life. In my work, I provide nonjudgemental, safe and supportive space for people to confront issues before them, explore who they are, who they want to be and take steps toward achieving a life that feels authentic and fulfilling to them.
