About My Clients
Those I work with all have one thing in common—pain. Regardless of its form, nervousness, sadness, substance misuse, difficult thoughts and/or traumatic memories, attempting to cope with this pain has led to more suffering. There now exists a gap between the life they are living and the one they desire. Rather than living a rich meaningful life, life has become about avoiding, numbing or distracting the pain away. Does this should like you? If so, know this— you are not broken, you are stuck.
My Background and Approach
My approach to stuckness involves working together to cultivate new methods for interacting with pain, ones that don’t result in more suffering. We will work to cultivate clarity around where you have been and where you’d like to go; giving you a deeper understanding of how to create a rich and meaningful life despite the pain. I utilize humor and metaphors along with hands on practice to create an experience that is both informative and transformational. I offer virtual appointments for individuals located throughout the state of North Carolina. The approach I use draws from a foundation of empathy, unconditional positive regard, and congruence. Utilizing various treatment modalities (ACT, CBT, DBT and CPT) your therapy experience will be tailored to meet your unique circumstances and needs.
