I've been fascinated by the human experience for as long as I can recall—always curious and ready to learn more about the layers of who we are and how we perceive the world. Twenty years ago, I began a career in massage and structural therapy and spent ten years working one-on-one with clients to help them feel better in their bodies. My background in structural therapy, yoga, and dance informs the somatic approach I bring to counseling—for although we may struggle with our thoughts, we often do so while turning away from feelings in the body. I've also been a student of meditation for over ten years, which influences both my attitudes about wellness and my presence in session.
My intention as a counselor is to create an environment full of care and attention that supports the dignity of each person in the room. I find it the highest honor to collaborate with clients as they heal and grow. I'm LGBTQIA affirmative and social justice oriented. I specialize in working with trauma, grief and loss, relationships, life transitions, spirituality, and those who've experienced abuse of any kind.
I graduated from Appalachian State University with a Master's in Clinical Mental Health Counseling and post-graduate certificates in Expressive Arts Therapy and Systemic Multicultural Counseling. In 2017, I served as clinical intern at Our VOICE, where I provided individual and group counseling to survivors of sexual violence. I currently practice as a Licensed Professional Counselor Associate (LPCA) in North Carolina (#A14167) under the clinical supervision of Heather Schnoebelen, LPCS.
