Using a holistic approach, I work with individuals who want to achieve lasting change. I earned a master’s degree in Social Work from the University of North Carolina at Charlotte, and a graduate certificate in Gerontology.
I have over 10 years of experience and the way I view/practice therapy is heavily informed by Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Mindfulness Based Therapy, and the understanding of a person centered environment. Using a systems approach to resolve life issues, I help you to facilitate the changes in your life that you wish to occur.
Counseling is provided in a confidential, caring atmosphere with attention to each client's culture and values. I see myself as a collaborator and believe clients are the experts on their own lives. I help them explore their inner world and discover their authentic, peaceful, happy selves.
