|My Education, Experience, and Credentials
I received my BA in Communication and French from Wake Forest University, and my MA
in Counseling from Gordon-Conwell Theological Seminary in South Hamilton,
I have been working in the mental health field since 2002, and have been a licensed
professional counselor in the state of North Carolina since August 26, 2005 (License
#5019). I am also a Certified Anger Management Specialist-I (CAMS-I) through the
National Anger Management Association (www.namass.org). In August of 2013, I became a
Licensed Professional Counselor Supervisor (License #S5019). Prior to starting my own
private practice, I worked at the Mecklenburg County Jail, and in both the outpatient
department and emergency department of CMC-Randolph.
On a personal note, I am a mom of 3 children and a wife, which keeps me busy when I am not
meeting with clients!
What you can expect from me
I believe that all individuals are unique and valuable, and I treat all of my clients with
compassion, respect and acceptance. I count it a privilege to walk alongside my clients
during difficult seasons in their lives as they seek to grow and heal.
My style is straight-forward, practical, validating and collaborative. It is influenced by
elements of cognitive-behavioral therapy, existential therapy, systems theory, dialectical
behavior therapy (DBT) and acceptance and commitment therapy (ACT).
My approach to counseling is grounded in the beliefs that:
