    About Me

    I feel like I didn't really choose being a therapist as a career but rather it chose me!  I earned a Masters of Science Degree in Criminal Justice in 2009 from UNCC.  My original intention was to join the US Marshall's Service ( I always enjoy asking clients if they can see me doing this after they get to know me!)  I returned to UNCC and graduated in 2011 with a Masters of Arts Degree in Counseling.  I earned a professional Certificate in Substance Abuse Counseling as well.  I discovered my passion for counseling while exploring the impact substance abuse and mental health as seen in the criminal justice system. After completing school, I was able to spend almost eight years working at agencies in the Charlotte community.  I have had the honor to be the Director of Adult Treatment at a local agency where I managed outpatient, residential and detox programs.

    I have been fortunate to have diverse learning opportunities.  I have worked with mental health diagnosis ranging from schizophrenia, bipolar and borderline disorders to anxiety, depression and phobias.  I have experience with a full range of substance abuse disorders including working with clients in various MAT.  I have worked with opioid use disorders since the beginning of my career including clients in OMT, on suboxone and with chronic pain.  I typically work with adults aged 18 and over, however, I have experience working with teens 13 to 17 years old and will see these clients on a limited basis.

    I was born and raised in Charlotte which is why helping this community is very personal for me.  I enjoy working as a therapist and I try to find ways to incorporate not only clinical skills but humor and happiness into your therapy.  I love Charlotte and the Carolinas; I look forward to having the opportunity to work within my community.
