I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker who has been providing therapeutic services since 2004. My experience includes working with children, adolescents, adults, families and groups in community-based as well as inpatient and outpatient treatment settings. My experience working with healthcare professionals, school systems and community agencies has helped me to establish strong relationships and provide comprehensive care for my clients. As a clinician, I embrace a strengths-based perspective, and I borrow from many different theory bases for psychotherapy. These theories include cognitive-behavioral, solution-focused, reality-based, mindfulness-based and family systems theories. Techniques that I utilize may include dialogue, psycho education, relaxation, reframing of negative thoughts, positive decision-making, role-play, mindfulness or writing/art exercises.
We will work together to establish realistic and attainable goals for you to achieve. These goals are flexible and we may modify them as your needs change. Active participation in and out of session is essential to your success. I will often assign tasks between appointments to help strengthen the skills you acquire during therapy and to empower you to resolve issues after the therapeutic relationship has ended.
Therapy is a unique process for each individual and duration and success of treatment will vary according to acuity of presenting issues. I am committed to providing a supportive and safe environment that promotes healing and will encourage personal growth, self-empowerment and self-fulfillment. It is my privilege to work alongside all of my clients to help them achieve their personal goals.
I have lived in Charlotte for the majority of my life and am a graduate of Providence Day School. I am happily married and the mother of three wonderful children. I enjoy spending my free time with family and friends. I also enjoy regular exercise, reading, and catching a movie when able.
