After receiving my Bachelor's Degree in Psychology, with a concentration in Community Psychology, from Georgia State University, I relocated to Charlotte in 2004. I completed my Master's Degree in Clinical-Community Psychology from The University of North Carolina at Charlotte and have been working in the mental health field for over fifteen years. While my training was based in Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, I found that I was drawn to a more relational approach when working with individuals. This means that I find the therapeutic relationship highly important and work to establish a corrective emotional experience when working with clients. I often describe therapy as an iceberg. Many therapists only work with what's on the surface--the symptoms, the observable, the obvious, but therapy is so much more than this. The REAL work is what lies below the surface. It's the deeper work that takes time, patience and a profound understanding of the human condition. If you are ready to trust the process, I am here.
