Why work with me?

Wondering if I can help?

Let's talk!

My clients have taught me that authenticity (being real) is essential to create the safety needed for growth and change. I am grateful that life and my mountain heritage that have instilled that authenticity in me.

I grew up in rural Western North Carolina, the first in my family to attend college. I began my professional life as a teacher. Since I was so good at school and loved learning, I went on to earn two graduate degrees—a Master of Divinity and a Master of Social Work with a Certification in Substance Abuse.

I am dually licensed as a Clinical Social Worker (LCSW) and  a Clinical Addiction Specialist (LCAS). My passion for treating eating disorders and my belief in full recovery is rooted in my family’s experience and eventual triumph over this devastating disease.

I enjoy working with families, individuals, and couples, whether heterosexual or LGBTQ. I use Family Based Treatment for eating disorders in children and adolescents, and Sensorimotor Psychotherapy-based body awareness techniques for trauma and anxiety. My areas of practice include:

  • Disordered Eating in Children, Teens, and Adults
  • Trauma and Anxiety
  • Compulsive Spending and Money Issues
  • Family and Couples Therapy

Helping people grow and heal requires skill, knowledge, intuition, curiosity, humor, and humility. I have the best job in the world, accompanying amazing people on their journeys to more abundant, satisfying lives!

DOG LOVERS: Oreo, my sweet old  lab/hound mix is a natural therapy dog. Just hearing him sigh with contentment can take your anxiety down a notch. If you’d like him to attend your sessions, he is always happy to do so.  It is always your choice. Just let us know!
