About Me

I am a clinical social worker, addiction specialist and a certified supervisor.

I support healing by fostering healthy relationship. I found that clients that value a biopsychosocial (relations between mind and body) approach in therapy tend to be drawn to me. I can help your body to connect with feelings and emotions. I work with individuals and couples who don't want to settle in unhappiness and worry. I support my clients through transitions and change. My greatest passion is to restore balance and bring relief. My work with clients revolves around supporting them to prioritize their needs, as well as to identify coping mechanisms and resources available to them.

My speciality centers around anxiety, depression, trauma and addiction. I support people as they face a range of experiences including multicultural concerns, racism, oppression, identity exploration, relationship concerns, transitions, loss and grief. I take great pride in successes of my clients. I receive regular supervision with emphasis on psychodynamic and Gestalt therapy perspectives from Vann Joines from Southeast Institute for Individuals and Couples. My knowledge, world view and lived experiences make my approach unique and powerfully effective. 

I have my undergraduate degree in English Philology, Master's degree in Cultural Anthropology and my second Master's Degree in Social Work from UNC - Chapel Hill. I have worked in hospitals and treatment centers, in public and private settings.

My Approach

There is, of course, no single therapeutic counseling approach that could possibly ‘fit’ every person that walks into my office. Despite the fact that many issues being addressed in therapy may sound the same, individuals’ experiences – and most importantly, their interpretation of those experiences – are often very different. The following are some common principles that underlie my approach to counseling with all of my clients:
