I am a Licensed Professional Counselor in North Carolina and also a Nationally Certified Counselor. I have my Bachelor's in Psychology from Appalachian State University and my Master's degree in Marriage and Family Therapy from Richmont Graduate University in Atlanta, Georgia.
My clinical experience includes counseling adolescents, adults, couples and families. I have expertise in the areas of depression, anxiety, grief and relationship issues. I currently provide individual counseling to adults and teenagers age 16 and older, couples therapy, and family counseling with older teens and adults. I also offer expertise in Christian Counseling.
I began my professional counseling experience in June 2005 where I counseled as an individual and group therapist in Georgia at a Community Mental Health Center. I worked with adults experiencing a wide range of DSM diagnoses alongside psychiatrists, nurses, social workers, community support professionals and other counselors.
I moved to Raleigh in April of 2007 and counseled for 2 years at a Residential Group Home for teenage girls. There I was an individual therapist, marriage and family counselor as well as group therapist for teenagers and their families.
I was a counselor at a local Counseling Center for 2 years starting December 2008. I worked as an individual counselor as well as a marriage and family counselor. In August 2010, I ventured into my own Private Practice! I live in downtown Raleigh with my husband Ryan. We love taking advantage of the great food, art, culture, retail and events that Downtown Raleigh has to offer!
