We are the experts in our own stories, yet we can all benefit from compassion, genuine connection, and fresh perspectives as we navigate life’s challenges and move toward more inspired and meaningful lives. As a therapist, I work collaboratively with my clients to create a safe space that fosters authenticity, mindfulness, and personal growth. My practice incorporates an integrative, client-centered approach, and a philosophy of acute self-awareness and acceptance. I also wholeheartedly believe that a little humor and creativity can go a long way!
My journey toward becoming a counselor began during my five-year enlistment in the US Navy, where I worked as a military career counselor and volunteered as a sexual assault victim intervention advocate. After my enlistment, I earned my bachelor’s degree in psychology from the University of North Carolina at Wilmington, and I am now pursuing my master’s degree in clinical mental health counseling. I have additional training in crisis intervention, play therapy, cognitive behavioral therapy for weight loss, and counseling for sexual trauma. I enjoy working with adults and adolescents, using a variety of evidence-based theories and techniques that include Attachment Theory, Acceptance and Commitment Therapy, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, and Person-Centered Therapy. In my free time, I enjoy gardening, painting, paddle boarding, and hiking with my family.
