MEd, LPC-A, NCC
If you are ready for relief, allow me to help you take the next step.
I specialize in treating anxiety, depression, and reproductive related mood disorders. I have a particular interest in counseling individuals as they navigate life transitions and difficulties that can come with chronic stress.
I view therapy as another form of self care, just like diet and exercise. I have faith in the therapeutic process and have seen lives truly transformed. I work with clients to navigate the ebbs and flows of life in a way that celebrates individuality and encourages growth. I practice an approach to therapy that considers all aspects of the human experience — including mind, body, spirit, and community — and provide a partnership with my clients that is authentic and honest. I help clients develop the tools needed to experience the range of human emotions with a kind and accepting perspective. I utilize a collaborative approach tailored to meet each client's unique needs. At the root of my approach is a safe and non judgmental space for clients to be truly understood.
I graduated from the Citadel Graduate College with an MEd in Counselor Education and College of Charleston with a BS in Psychology. I am passionate about ending the stigma around mental health issues, and normalizing the thoughts and emotions that can come with life’s challenging seasons.
I live in the Charleston area with my husband and young daughter. I love animals, especially our rescue pup, Gunner. In my free time I enjoy cooking for wellness, yoga, live music, and the outdoors.
