I provide psychotherapy for young adults and adults who have mental health concerns like anxiety, social anxiety and depression, as well as more general life issues like relationship difficulties, grief and loss and changes in circumstance(s). I hold a certificate in addictions and work with people with substance use disorders or behavioral addictions, whether they are in recovery or not. I also work with individuals who have experienced trauma and/or difficult upbringings and may or may not have a diagnosis of PTSD. Offering Attachment Focused and IFS-informed EMDR, I am able to assist clients with complex trauma histories.
I use evidence-based approaches that have a proven record in helping people change, heal and become more psychologically flexible:

Choosing to engage in psychotherapy is an important decision, one that can be the gateway to change, insight and greater freedom in life. Choosing the right therapist is equally important. If you've never been to therapy, it can be a little daunting at first. There are so many questions, so many therapists and so many unknowns... Not every therapist is right for every person.
Give me a call, text or email me. Let me know what you're looking for and we can decide whether or not I'm a good fit for you at this time. If I'm not, I'll provide you referrals to trusted clinicians and/or resources that may be better suited for you.
I currently accept NC BlueCross BlueShield, United Healthcare, Tricare and Medicare. My sessions are typically 60-90 minutes in length. I do offer EMDR intensive sessions (half day), when appropriate. My self-pay rate for individual therapy is $120. I do offer a needs-based sliding scale. Contact me to learn more.
I was born and raised in Wilmington, NC and am drawn to serve in my home town. I attended UNC-Chapel Hill School of Social Work in 2014 with a clinical focus, earning my MSW and a certificate in Substance Abuse Studies. I completed my clinical internship at Duke University Counseling and Psychological Services and went on to work for over three years at Hoy Recovery Program, Inc., a residential treatment program in rural Northern New Mexico. There I came to see quite clearly how trauma, unmet needs, socio-economic forces and historical traumas often reside under the outer layers of mental illness and addiction.
I have been involved in self-inquiry work for over 15 years and have experience with mindfulness and meditation practices. In my spare time I hang out with my partner and my chihuahua-mix, make music and forage for wild foods. I have a passion for healing work, transformation and discovery.
