My approach to therapy is collaborative and supportive, based on the idea that providing a safe, nurturing environment within the context of a meaningful therapeutic relationship is key to promoting positive change and healing. I have experience working with children, adolescents, adults and families in both outpatient and inpatient settings, and my time as a public school teacher has allowed me to develop a richer understanding of the needs of children and families. Whether you are a child, adolescent, college student, or adult struggling with anxiety, depression, self-control issues, stress, anger, grief and loss, communication difficulties, parenting challenges or life adjustment issues, consider if psychotherapy may help you to better understand and resolve these challenges.

I earned my Master of Social Work from UNC Chapel Hill and have completed training through the UNC Department of Psychiatry Child and Adolescent Outpatient Program with a focus on child and adolescent psychodynamic psychotherapy as well as parent supportive therapy. I am a member of the National Association of Social Workers (NASW) and an associate member of the American Psychological Association (APA).
