My Approach

​My belief in resiliency and a person’s innate capacity to “right” what has felt off or wrong in their life is the healing hallmark of my work.

I hold LCSW licensure in North Carolina, and am an NC Licensed Clinical Addictions Specialist. I earned my MSW from The University of Hawai’i in 2010. I received the Heart Based Therapeutics Practitioner Certification from the Heart Based Institute in 2015, which is the foundation of how I relate as a therapist, ie., being here and now, attuned to the field of the spiritual/ energetic heart, both to my own, and to the heart of my clients.

My other modalities include The Trauma Resiliency Model (a Somatic Therapeutic Model), EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing), Bioenergetics (another Body-Oriented Somatic approach), and AEDP,  which is a Relational attachment-based, healing-oriented model. We will work collaboratively and find the most optimal method(s) for you; this is your journey we are on as a team, where mutual respect and sincerity are the essential building blocks to healing.
