MA, NCC, LPCA

Most people come to counseling as a last resort. You feel like you're at your wits’ end and have no idea what to do next. The good news is that you're not alone! I am here to help. Navigating the difficulties of parenting, adolescence, and day-to-day stresses of our modern world can be made easier by working collaboratively. 

I came to counseling as a second career. My undergraduate degree is a Bachelor’s of Science with a double major in Math and Computer Science from Appalachian State University. I spent 16 years in IT with the investment banks and human resources in Charlotte before getting my Master’s from the University of North Carolina at Charlotte in Clinical Mental Health Counseling.  I am a Nationally Board Certified Certified Clinician (NCC).


I am one of the few clinicians in Lake Norman that have advanced and specialized training to work with children under the age of 10. In addition to my Master's in Clinical Mental Health, I also obtained a Graduate Certificate in Play Therapy. This advanced training enables me to better help families with children and adolescents. I believe in a collaborative approach to counseling, so that counselor, client, and parent (or caregiver) are all working together to meet goals that we deem important.


I accept Blue Cross Blue ShieldAetna, & Cigna and will also bill out of network for you. We work to make counseling affordable for all of our clients. My appointment times are flexible and include late evening times. I look forward to working with you!
