I am passionate and experienced in working with teens, young adults, and women who are self-aware, know what they want, and aren’t afraid of a challenge. Often my clients are high achieving and successful. Yet, many feel stressed, unfulfilled, overwhelmed, anxious, or depressed. I see our work as a partnership-- one where I am able bring evidence-based approaches to the table to help my clients get unstuck and create lasting change.


I value authenticity and connection. I strive to cultivate relationships- including those with my clients- that are based on trust and openness. I strive to keep it real in session and to create an environment where my clients are emboldened to take risks and be vulnerable themselves. I find that clients who do tend to gain momentum towards their goals more quickly, leading them to feeling more fulfilled and satisfied with their lives.


I earned a Bachelor of Arts from Sweet Briar College and a Master of Science in Rehabilitation Counseling and Psychology from UNC- Chapel Hill. I am a Licensed Clinical Mental Health Counselor and a NCBLCMHC board approved Clinical Supervisor. Throughout my career I have worked in a variety of both public and private sector settings but spent the bulk working in higher education working in college counseling centers, with individuals with disabilities, as well as in private practice.

licensed clinical mental health    counselor associate

Therapy is a personal journey fostered in a non-judgemental and supportive environment; this journey offers insight to each person’s inner world. As such, therapy is a collaborative process in which I encourage and support my clients to gain insight and foster personal growth as they work towards achieving their goals. I am passionate about supporting women and teens as they work towards being the self they deserve to be. 


It is my belief that the creative process combined with compassion-focused techniques and evidence-based coping skills allows individuals to transform and heal matters of the mind and body. I aim to create a unique and non-judgmental space to help women and teens explore and express themselves authentically and safely. I will work with you to understand your needs and be your guide towards self-improvement and well being. I use an integrated approach to healing; you can expect traditional talk therapy integrated with art-making, mindfulness practices, and evidence-based dialectical behavioral techniques to support you.


I earned my Bachelor of Arts from Converse College in South Carolina and my Masters degree in Clinical Art Therapy & Mental Health Counseling from Long Island University in New York. I am a Licensed Clinical Mental Health Counselor Associate and a Board Certified Art Therapist. I have experience working with college students, children, teens, and adults processing trauma, those with acute mental illness, those undergoing transitions in their lives.
