How I Help
For many of life’s issues, it is helpful to understand what the underlying origin of the problem is in order to facilitate healing. I use the psychodynamic approach to counseling as a means to assist clients with understanding themselves more deeply. I collaborate with the client to address patterns and behaviors that disrupt wellbeing.
Anxiety: Everyone, at some point, has concerns about one thing or another. For some, concern may be more intense, leading to symptoms such as worrying thoughts that won’t go away on their own. I integrate techniques that provide relief from the symptoms while investigating, with the client, what the underlying root causes are for the anxiety.
Grief: It can be painful to experience the loss of someone we hold dear or grapple with the loss associated with aging or an unrealized dream. Whether it’s the loss of a job or the loss of a family member, moving through the stages of grief can be a challenge. I create a safe place to discuss your grief and assist with journeying through the process of expressing the pain and uncovering barriers to healing.
Women’s Issues: With all of the challenges and demands women face today, life can be overwhelming. I provide an environment that is free from judgement that allows women to explore their issues and uncover ways that their childhood experiences and relationships have influenced their adult understanding of who they are in the many roles they shoulder.
More About Me
Having served populations in Isiolo, Kenya during short-term mission journeys, I have a heart for serving marginalized people groups, in all of their forms. As an associate minister at a local church, I enjoy serving in a married couples ministry. I also enjoy reading and playing with my two dogs. Prior to entering the mental health field, I enjoyed a successful career in the banking industry.
I am a Licensed Clinical Mental Health Counselor Associate and National Certified Counselor. I am a graduate of Gordon-Conwell Theological Seminary, having earned a Master of Arts in Christian Counseling. While at Gordon-Conwell, I completed two clinical rotations in Mecklenburg County correctional facilities, providing counseling services to incarcerated women and adolescents. As a result, I gained experience with working with a variety of issues including personality disorders, schizophrenia, sexual abuse, domestic violence and depression.
