Over the years, my practice has become more and more focused on individuals who do not fit into societal norms. A large percentage of my clients are on the Autism Spectrum. I also work with people who experience non-traditional gender identification and/or sexuality, and those who simply want to explore their personal development in an open-minded, inclusive setting. If you decide to enter into a counseling relationship with me, I will help you gain the skills to identify and address the dysfunctional or disruptive rather than what is simply different from others. I will support you as you discover the best of who you are without changing the essence of your personality.
Prior to opening my practice in 2006, I had counseling jobs in public middle school, public separate school, therapeutic foster care, and with children 0-5 at Bringing Out the Best. In 2008, I returned to graduate school at Appalachian State University to obtain my Post Graduate Certificate in Expressive Art Therapy. I have spent many hours in training and observation at NC TEACCH and in myriad workshops to develop my expertise in Autism Spectrum Disorders. I am currently a Licensed Professional Counselor and National Certified Counselor.
When you turn onto Revolution Mill Drive, please park at the 1050 entrance. My office is the first on the left, but the door is on the hallway next to the bathrooms. It opens into a lobby, so come on in and make yourself at home.
Prior to your first visit, print out and complete the insurance and intake forms. Bring the completed forms to your appointment so your time with me can be spent on therapy, not paperwork.

I accept these insurance providers, along with a variety of self-pay options. Be sure to bring your insurance card to the first appointment and your copayment to each visit.
