I am a Licensed Professional Counselor, Associate (LPCA) working in private practice. I serve the Mount Pleasant and Charleston areas and have over 6 years of experience counseling in school counseling and mental health counseling. I specialize in the treatment of trauma, anxiety, depression, grief, and life transitions.
Are you ready to regain control over your feelings and behavior, rather than being controlled by them?
Through the use of mind-body therapy, we explore your conscious and subconscious thoughts through the use of a variety of specific techniques such the trauma-focused therapy called Brainspotting, and positive-focused therapies known as Motivational Interviewing and Mindfulness. My goal is to create a treatment plan that is unique to your needs.
I present a more informal and relaxed environment in my sessions, in order to give you the freedom to revisit your past and/or explore your future on your own terms; all while remaining in the present and continuously reevaluating your current needs, values, and belief system. It’s time to get comfortable in the uncomfortable.
By promoting balance and harmony, you will establish a stronger mind-body connection, and as a result, you will achieve more optimal levels of self-awareness, focused energy, and healing.

Why should I go to therapy?
Feelings are sometimes hard to explain and even harder to deal with. Gaining an understanding of why you feel a certain way can help you regain control over yourself and how you respond to these feelings.
Support. You’re not alone and sometimes you need to hear that from somebody else.
Self-Care. Your story and your emotions are yours. Have a place where you can explore just how you truly feel about your anxiety, fears, and insecurities.
Authenticity. Give yourself the freedom to be you. The real you. Readjust your perspective, improve your mental health, and gain the confidence you need to make everyday decisions easier.
Happiness. Yes, it is a choice, and sometimes getting a little extra guidance from a professional can help you get back on track.
