I work with folx from all walks of life who want change. Whether that change is a slowing down, speeding up, finding a new routine, learning how to set boundaries, drinking less, incorporating intuitive eating, or something else. I love helping my clients identify the places in their life that work, and the places that don’t, to make meaningful changes that matter. I enjoy working with the LGBTQIA+ population and am an affirming and understanding provider. 

In our space, we use your strengths and desires to tailor our process. We focus on goals that you set, and you want for your life. If you don’t know what you want, that’s okay – we can figure that out. I can share helpful books, workbooks, and worksheets that you can take with you in between sessions to help manage the day-to-day stress and practice change. 

“Therapy: weird, but good,” is stamped across a pillow I’m quite fond of (and you very well may see this pillow in my office). 

For people new to therapy, it can be awkward opening up to someone and sharing your shadows. My job is to make that process healing and enriching. I want to help you recognize your own light amidst the shadows. I want to help you design a life you’re proud of. 

I am a HAES (Health at Every Size) clinician, who values our body’s intuitive nature and does not place societal expectations on what a body should look like. I work with clients with disordered eating, eating disorders, OCD, trauma, anxiety, depression, and other topics as well. I am pursuing national certification in eating disorder and OCD work now. I am trained in EMDR (Eye Movement Densensitization and Reprocessing) for trauma and EXRP (Exposure and Response Prevention) for OCD. 

If you’re an adult who’s anxious, depressed, in substance use recovery, wanting to be in recovery, or experiencing suicidal thoughts or desires, we could be a great fit. 

I am a Licensed Clinical Mental Health Counselor (LCMHC) and a Licensed Clinical Addictions Specialist (LCAS) in North Carolina.
