About Me

My Education, Experience, and Credentials

I received my BA from Wake Forest University, and my MA in Counseling  from Gordon-Conwell Theological Seminary.   

I have been working in the mental health field since 2001, and have been a licensed
professional counselor in the state of North Carolina since August, 2005 (License
#5019).  I am also a Certified Anger Management Specialist-I (CAMS-I) through the National Anger Management Association (
www.namass.org).   In August of 2013, I became a Licensed Professional Counselor Supervisor (License #S5019).  My background includes working in the jail, a psychiatric emergency department, and as a therapist in the outpatient department at a community mental health center.

On a personal note, I am a mom of 3 young children and a wife, which keeps me busy when I am not meeting with clients!

What you can expect from me
I believe that all individuals are unique and valuable, and I treat all of my clients with
compassion, respect and acceptance.  I count it a privilege to walk alongside my clients during difficult seasons in their lives as they seek to grow and heal.  

My style is straight-forward, practical, validating and collaborative.  It is influenced by  elements of cognitive-behavioral therapy, existential therapy, systems theory, dialectical behavior therapy (DBT) and acceptance and commitment therapy (ACT).
