If you would like support with parenting, burnout at your job, or complex PTSD and trauma then these are my specialties. Highly sensitive people (HSPs), college students, therapists and teachers, teens, parents, and adults tend to work with me best. I also love focusing on any business and financial goals through therapy, to help work towards work-life balance. I love to help helpers maintain longevity in their careers, heal from stress, and childhood trauma or grief. Ideal clients are motivated for therapy, enjoy reading and doing homework. Prolonged Exposure trauma therapy and parent coaching for therapists and professionals is also an option.
I am trained in using therapy that has been highly researched, such as Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Dialectical Behavior Therapy, Acceptance and Commitment Therapy, and Prolonged Exposure for trauma therapy. I was a former professor and researcher prior to creating my private practice and I love working with new therapists and people searching for purpose and their life. I am a firm believer in "You are never too old to set another goal or dream a new dream." -C.S. Lewis
I am a graduate of the University of Miami and completed my doctorate at Louisiana Tech University. I have lived in Miami, Louisiana, New Jersey, Central Florida, Brooklyn, and I am proud to call Asheville my home. I often spend time with my family, and enjoy reading new books, cooking, and trying to balance it all. I am an advocate for suicide prevention, grief and loss, mom-work-life balance, and underprivileged communities especially LGBTQIAA and BIPOC individuals.
