Welcome

I am a Licensed Professional Counselor, National Certified Counselor and Art Therapist and have been working in mental health and social services since 2002. I see outpatient clients Mondays through Thursdays in my private office in downtown Pittsboro, North Carolina.

Areas of specialty and expertise:

  • Mild to severe anxiety
  • Panic attacks
  • Stress management
  • Self-injury
  • Psychosis
  • Loss or trauma
  • The challenges of adolescence
  • Relationship and family problems
  • Parenting challenges
  • LGBTQIA topics
  • Depression
  • Difficulties understanding and communicating about gender
  • Work-life balance

There are many areas with which I have experience and feel I can help you bring your life into balance. However, there are a few challenges, such as significant drug or alcohol problems, for which I will recommend either collaboration with another program or provider or will help you find a provider that is a better fit. Please feel free to contact me to discuss your needs in advance of scheduling an initial appointment. I am happy to help you find the resources that meet your needs, even if it is not within my practice.

 

I strive to create a safe place for all. You can expect openness, respect and collaboration.

I welcome diversity in my practice and stand against oppression and social injustice, while working to respect and understand the beliefs and values of all clients.  I am anti-racism, anti-sexism, and LGBTQIA-affirmative and work with people from diverse racial, ethnic, cultural, and religious backgrounds.
