I am a licensed clinical social worker (LCSW) and licensed clinical addictions specialist (LCAS). I provide counseling in a very safe, open minded, and nurturing environment which gives my clients the support they need in order to heal and grow. I am affirming of all people including transgender and gender non conforming/ non-binary individuals.  My Durham office is convenient to locations around the Triangle. I am in network with Blue Cross Blue Shield and Medicare. I also offer a sliding scale for those who need or want to pay out of pocket.

Heal and grow

Therapy is a wonderful opportunity to discover new insights and heal from past hurts and disappointments, loss, or trauma (including physical abuse, sexual abuse or emotional abuse).  I can help you learn ways to regulate emotions, tolerate distress, manage bereavement, or grief, and to be more at peace in your body and in the world. If you are recovering from an alcohol or drug addiction, an eating disorder or another behavioral or process addiction, I can help you maintain sobriety and begin or continue to live a balanced, healthy life.   

 

manage stress

Learn new ways to cope with stress and anxiety that decrease your anxiety level and increase your ability to relax and enjoy life. Discover techniques to reduce obsessive or unwanted negative thoughts, whether they stem from OCD, PTSD, or generalized anxiety. Learn to increase self esteem and let go of guilt and shame.  I am skilled at teaching relaxation and breathing training, as well as helping to identify and replace negative thoughts to reduce anxiety and tension, decrease panic attacks, and increase quality of sleep.
