Clients describe my style as calm, holistic, and compassionate. I have a background as a yoga and mindfulness instructor and offer a wide range of grounding, integrating and mindfulness practices. My work integrates research from divergent fields including neuroscience, attachment theory, epigenetics and trauma. I use a body-based approach when appropriate, helping clients explore how various bodily sensations are linked to their emotional experience
My practice is inclusive of LGBTQ+ identifying people. I welcome individuals and couples of diverse identities, sexual orientations, and relationship structures.

WHAT I'M READING RIGHT NOW
Letting Go: The Pathway of Surrender
- David Hawkins
My approach to therapy is relational, experiential and systemic. This means I believe that:
We all possess the resources for growth, transformation and coping with life’s challenges. Problems arise when we lose sight of this.
We learn and grow primarily through experience. Simply talking about a problem is not enough to make real change.
Change is always possible. Even if external change is limited, internal change is still possible.
Human beings are relational, meaning relationships are central to our health and well-being.
In order to understand people and problems, it is important to understand the impact of wider systems and social contexts on people’s lives. Context is of paramount significance for an individual’s psychological development and emotional well-being.
To feel whole and alive we need to be able to settle, trust, and listen to our bodies.
I am currently accepting new individual and couples clients located anywhere in North Carolina for teletherapy. Please send a message for more information.
