Talking about what’s troubling you can help.
UNDERSTANDING THROUGH COMMUNICATION
Helping people live a full and authentic life, filled with self-understanding and self-compassion, is why I do what I do. My private practice in Raleigh, NC provides individuals and couples a welcoming, intimate space to explore the nature of their feelings, fears, and desires. A deeper understanding of past experiences can give you the freedom to discover meaningful answers that make life’s challenges easier to manage. Being honest with ourselves takes courage. Opening the book of our lives, sharing our personal stories, examining traumatic chapters, and revisiting the twists and turns of relationships can lead to a healthier, happier life on the road ahead.
I hold a bachelor’s degree in Public Health from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill and a master’s degree in Clinical Psychology from East Carolina University.
I have been a Licensed Psychological Associate (LPA) in North Carolina since 1993. I’ve also received extensive training in trauma, anxiety disorders, grief work, and meditation and mindfulness practices. Before opening my private practice, I worked as a staff psychologist in a variety of inpatient and outpatient clinical settings, where I provided psychological testing and group and individual therapy. I have also taught college courses in Interpersonal Relations, Child Development, and Abnormal Psychology.
I spent my early days as a young professional in Public Health, teaching sexuality education and facilitating supportive group therapy for individuals with sexually transmitted infections.
