I am a Certified Clinical Telemental Health Provider offering telehealth virtual counseling sessions to residents of North Carolina (NC) and South Carolina (SC). I understand that making a decision to begin counseling can be an intimidating undertaking, so the option of being able to do so from your own personal space can make counseling more viable and comfortable. I strive to create a safe, supportive, non-judgmental virtual space, and I value the relationship we will develop as an important element to the exploration, growth and/or healing that you desire.
Being among a limited number of therapists certified in Emotionally Focused Couples Therapy (EFT) within the Carolinas, I use the EFT approach to help you reconnect with your partner to create a safer, more secure bond, such that you can get the kind of comfort and understanding you desire within the relationship. As a Certified Prepare/Enrich Facilitator, I also provide premarital counseling. In addition, I have experience working with individuals struggling with diverse challenges, ranging from temporarily overwhelming stressors to life-altering losses or circumstances. Prior experience gives me distinct insight into the demands and stressors of working in corporate culture.
I am a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist (NC), Licensed Clinical Mental Health Counselor (NC), Licensed Professional Counselor (SC) and National Certified Counselor with advanced training in Internal Family Systems. With a Master of Arts in Christian Counseling degree from Gordon-Conwell Theological Seminary, I am uniquely trained as a Christian counselor and committed to do all I can to make you feel welcome and free from judgment regardless of where you are in your faith walk.
