When life becomes difficult to manage, reaching out for professional support is a sign of strength. As a licensed clinical social worker for the past 30 years and a certified school social worker for the past 18, I would love to assist you and/or your family to provide that support. I provide individual, family, group counseling and parent consultation/coaching.
My expertise includes working with children, adolescents and adults. I am currently working with clients aged 13 up to those who are in middle age. I practice from a trauma-informed lens while utilizing Mindfulness, Person-Centered and Cognitive Behavioral Therapy strategies. My specialties include anxiety and depression, relationships issues, grief and loss, divorce, anger management, ADD, school-related difficulties, and low self-worth.
On a personal note, I’m a mom to two grown children and two adorable grand puppies. I received my Master’s Degree in Social Work (MSW) from East Carolina University in 1992. I have personal experience with military families and divorce. I recently moved to the beautiful state of NC from Illinois, and I enjoy hiking with my Australian shepherd.
My approach to therapy is highly collaborative and relational. I believe providing a safe and nonjudgmental therapeutic relationship is central to helping create change. I have a passion for helping clients discover their authentic selves in both mind and body. I am honored that you are considering working with me on your road to healing. If you have any questions, please feel free to reach out to me directly at firstname.lastname@example.org or 704-288-0316.
I am currently in network with BCBS and Medcost and am seeing all other clients using their out of network benefits. I will soon accept insurance with CBHA and Cigna/Evernorth.
