General Counseling Practice
The development of my passion for counseling stems from early life experiences including grief, loss, life transitions and trauma. My experiences have driven me to be knowledgeable of various healing approaches that focus on therapeutic relationships. My goal is to support you in the realization that you are your greatest untapped resource. You are capable of achieving creative capacities through hidden potentials. The idea of brokenness does not discount your ability to experience healing. I want to have ears to listen and a heart to receive your story as we embark on the journey to hope and healing.
Appalachian State University is where I attained my Master's degree in Clinical Social Work. I currently am fully licensed as a clinical social worker in the state of North Carolina. My professional experience and past internships have given me the opportunity to work with many families, individuals, as well a spending time at Caldwell High School engaging in school social work. In my spare time I enjoy hiking, running, camping, reading, playing and coaching soccer and spending time with my dog, Aspen. I also have a great appreciation for music and the connection it holds between mind, body and spirit.
In approaching counseling I feel no single approach can treat all clients in all situations. Therefore, I practice an integrated approach that encompasses a more diverse approach to fit your individual needs. I promote person centered therapy, as well as a strengths-based perspective that emphasizes the positives in life. My goal is to practice holistically, connecting elements of mind, body and spirit. I also practice elements of Cognitive Behavioral Therapy to challenge you and help you through a hard time, shift to a better place, or accomplish new goals.
The therapeutic relationship combined with a collaborative approach is a key component in the process of change. I realize that the therapeutic relationship includes trust and I will ensure to practice patience and persistence in pursuing this process. I strive to be inclusive of all individuals regardless of race, culture, spiritual beliefs, or sexual orientation. I believe that mental health is systematic and it is important to support those living with mental illness as well as friends and families of those enduring mental illness. By utilizing family systems therapy, conflicts can be resolved by exploring the dynamics if each family unit. You are worthy of support regardless of if you are experiencing mental illness or you are affected by mental illness.
My focus areas include simple and complex trauma, depression, anxiety, grief and loss, ADHD, relationships, time management, stress management, behavioral problems, school and social problems, as well as low self-esteem.
