Practice Types: Mental Health Therapists

I'm a Licensed Clinical Social Worker serving adults living through transitions and grief. The main populations I work with are young professionals, anyone living with serious or life-limiting illness and caregivers.

I received my BSW from NCSU (2010) and MSW from UNC (2011) where I focused on topics of aging and end of life. I began my career working for several years as a hospice social worker. Most recently I worked for a private company, offering consultations and education on topics of stress, young professional transitions, mental health, grief, caregiving and serious illness.

Finding the right fit of therapist is so important and I welcome your questions to determine if we will work well together. I am LGBTQ affirming. I utilize a systems approach that fosters a greater understanding of how any concern is intertwined with personal, cultural and institutional factors. I primarily draw from Internal Family Systems (IFS) and ACT Therapy (pronounced like the word “act”) which are non-pathologizing and evidence based. I am a Certified Grief Informed Professional through Evergreen Certifications.

Feelings like grief, overwhelm and worry are all perfectly reasonable responses to certain life experiences and environments. You may feel suffering or seek a new direction, but this doesn't mean there is anything inherently wrong with you. Loss, change and other life disruptions can impact our sense of self and engagement with the connections around us. I believe in a collaborative approach, partnering with you to find new ways to connect internally with parts that need to heal and be heard as well externally to the people and communities around you. I look forward to working with you.
