About this Service

Many of us know that life can come at you hard and fast. Crisis situations, unresolved pain from lived traumatic experiences, and loss can result in feelings that are overwhelming, hard to express and often hard to accept. Throughout my lived experiences, I have encountered and observed how the difficulties associated with transition, adjustment and change can negatively impact one’s emotional well-being. I was motivated to become a Social Worker to assist others as they navigate their path to find the peace, forgiveness, and acceptance needed to heal internal conflicts, to promote a new meaningful and fulfilling approach to life.

I received a Master Degree in Social Work from Appalachian State University. I have more than 7 years of experience working with various populations with ages ranging from 7-80 years of age. I provide both Individual, Group, and Couples Psychotherapy services. I also experience working with the Veteran population who struggle with PTSD and MST related issues. I utilize Evidence -Based Practices to help those I serve develop skills need to effectively symptoms associated with Depression, Anxiety, Physical and Sexual Abuse, Personality Disorders, Mood Disorders, Substance Abuse and Dependency, Suicidality, Low Self-Esteem, Impulse Control and Anger Management, Grief/Loss, and Spirituality related issues. I have worked in both the Government and Community Mental health agencies.

My Counseling style is Eclectic and designed to uniquely meet the needs of each induvial I serve within a secure, nonjudgmental, unbiased and supportive environment. My goal is to provide the techniques and skills needed during your new season of self-awareness, self-love ,self-discovery and wellness.

During my professional career , I have developed the skills to promote a healthy , trusting, and positive therapeutic alliance with those I work with. I look forward to the opportunity of helping you let go of things that hinders your ability to grow and to experience your life in a more positive way. If you are ready then so am I!
