Welcome and thank you for considering me as your counselor. I provide individual, couples and family counseling to adults and adolescents in the Charleston area. I have a Masters in Clinical Mental Health Counseling from Georgian Court University. My approach is generally cognitive behavioral from a strengths perspective however, I employ a variety of evidenced-based treatments to best assist clients in meeting their individual goals.
I have extensive training in resilience work and PTSD/Trauma recovery and am able to provide two evidence-based PTSD treatments: Eye Movement Desensitization Reprocessing (EMDR) and Cognitive Processing Therapy (CPT). Being certified in Relaxation Based Pain Relief (RBPR) is helpful to clients that experience pain and are looking for an alternative to opiate treatments. As a Star Behavioral Health provider I have experience working with both military and civilian populations. Additionally, I am a certified PREPARE/ENRICH Facilitator and enjoy working with pre-marital and married couples examining the unique strengths of their partnerships.
I strive to be genuine, non-judgmental and dedicated to working alongside clients throughout this journey. Therapy involves change and provides an opportunity for emotional, physical, spiritual, and intellectual growth. I am committed to helping clients achieve greater resilience, openness, wellness and overall growth. Feel free to contact me for an initial consultation. I would be honored to work with you!
