What to Expect in a Session
I understand firsthand how trusting a new person and opening up can be challenging. Because of that, I take a person-centered approach that emphasizes you as the expert of your own experiences.
I aim to help you reach your goals — whatever they may be.
Sometimes the goal is to problem solve, build new skills, tighten up on existing skills, or just be heard. We all have tools in our toolbox that help us manage day to day challenges, but sometimes those tools stop working and we need to add new ones. I hope to help you achieve that.
I utilize a variety of techniques in session that include visual aids, in session practice, educational handouts, at home practice, videos, music, narrative writing and more. I encourage you to bring any content to session you may find helpful as well. I recognize there is no “one size fits all approach” and I believe in meeting you where you are and walking with you on your journey.

My Therapy Approach
Since my approach is individual and person centered, I pull from a variety of mental health treatment approaches. Some that I use more commonly are Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Dialectical Behavioral Therapy, Motivational Interviewing, Illness Management and Recovery, Interpersonal Therapy, Cognitive Processing Therapy, and Prolonged Exposure Therapy.
If you have any questions about our work together, I encourage you to ask so we can openly discuss them and collaborate toward meeting your goals.
My Professional Background
I am a UNC Chapel Hill Masters of Social Work 2020 graduate with clinical experience in domestic violence, sexual trauma, depression, anxiety, life transitions, and identity concerns. I received a Bachelor’s Degree in Sociology in 2018 with a Minor in Women and Gender Studies, African American Studies.
My Philosophy: I believe that our experiences are shaped by our intersecting identities, our social environment, and cultural norms; I understand the need for a comfortable space to process your thoughts and feelings about your own unique experiences.
Outside of my role as a clinical therapist, I enjoy exercising, trying new food, or binge watching my favorite show on Netflix or Hulu. I’ve recently added some new plant babies to my family, so I enjoy caring for them in my free time.
