Hello! Let me start by saying I am so excited you are considering taking the step of finding a therapist!  There can be a great deal of stigma when it comes to seeking treatment, and I value the courage it takes even to begin the process.

Here's a little about me.  I am a highly motivated individual who is very organized and loves her to-do lists!  I love to laugh and use humor as a way to connect with my clients.  I was born in Florida, but I've lived in North Carolina almost half my life now and consider it home.  I really love spending time with my partner, my friends, and my family.  I enjoy cooking, going to concerts, swimming, reading (check out what's on my bookshelf below!), and hiking.  I can't wait to get to know you!

Professionally, I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker and a Licensed Clinical Addictions Specialist Associate.  I have my Bachelor of Arts in Psychology and my Master of Social Work from North Carolina State University.  I am on the board of the North Carolina Society for Clinical Social Work and am actively involved in my community.  I believe that therapy is for everyone and do not view therapy solely as "problem-centered", but more "person-centered".  I value working with clients who want to better themselves and their relationships in order to lead more fulfilled lives.

I have always had a passion for helping people and one of my favorite phrases that I use in therapy is "Start Where You Are" (I even have a sign in my office!)  Everyone comes into therapy with different needs, different histories, and different desires - my goal is to work with you and figure out together where you are and where you would like to be.  Therapy is based on trust and I believe that trust is built through relationships.  My style is down-to-earth, practical, and kind.  Building a relationship is one of my core values as a therapist.  I want therapy to be a safe space and nonjudgmental environment that allows us to build a meaningful, respectful relationship.  

Thank you for reading.  I look forward to building a relationship with you and walking alongside you in your journey to a more fulfilling life!
