Licensed Marriage & Family Therapist in Charlotte, NC
I have been thoroughly steeped in relationship therapy training, both receiving and giving it. I think very systemically, which essentially means that I see and work with patterns and interactions. No one exists on their own. I specialize in communication, relational identity, and conflict management. I do relational work with individuals, partners, families, and polycules. I can provide premarital counseling as well as discernment therapy.
Marriage and Family Therapy is perfect for the poly community, because it is all about relationships. As a poly-friendly therapist, I know that being poly isn't the only thing poly people seek therapy for, but rather I can work with and integrate the complications and often additional connections being some form of consensual non-monogamy calls brings. My work is sex positive and non judgmental.
Spirituality is a dimension of being human. Having training from an interfaith perspective, I am well-positioned to provide spiritually integrated psychotherapy or spiritual direction to practically all faiths. My dissertation was on whether or not family therapists around the US met the spiritual needs of their clients. One of the ways I do this is by recognizing the meaning-making processes around values clients have. This allows the sacred to be discussed alongside or within the secular.
