About Me

I hold a Masters Level Degree in Social Work from University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill.  I am also currently a Licensed Clinical Social Worker (#C007529) in the state of North Carolina.  My work settings include in home private practice and I have been providing therapy services since 2009. 

I often work with children ages 3-18 who have been struggling with trauma related concerns/issues and behavioral support associated with developmental delays.  I am nationally rostered in Trauma Focused Cognitive Behavioral Therapy as well as training in Child Parent Psychotherapy.  I have provided therapy services for children ranging 3-18; however I have a specific interest in working with the 3-5 population in the area of trauma and behavioral services as well as working with ages 10 and under in the areas of adjustment, anxiety and trauma. I also feel that you go where the behavior is and am willing to support

children in their childcare setting to help support strategies that may benefit the child in their environment.  

I believe that therapy can be effective for you; and both you and I must be actively involved in assisting with the development of goals and assessing progress.  Efforts to change self-perception, emotions, and behaviors require work both in and out of the session.  An important aspect of this process is that it can assist with persons seeking services to gain insight and tools that will facilitate continued growth and development after counseling has ended.  I cannot guarantee any specific outcomes but we will continue to discuss you or your child’s progress as we go along and make changes in our goals and treatment as needed.  You should be aware that while therapy services can offer potential benefits, they also present possible risks such as uncovering painful or uncomfortable feelings including sadness, guilt, anxiety or frustration as you discuss aspects of your life.  I generally follow the client-centered orientation, emphasizing individual strength and resources of my client; please consider weighing the risks against the benefits, which may include such assets as gaining insights into your problems, developing coping skills and resources and increasing your ability to participate in general activities of daily living.
