I am a proud member of the Charlotte Transgender Healthcare Group and I am committed to providing affirming, inclusive, and compassionate care to folx of all backgrounds and intersectionalities. I have nearly 20 years of professional experience in the fields of law and mental health, and have specialized in serving the LGBTQ+ community for the past decade. I specialize in mood and anxiety disorders, eating disorders, identity exploration, career concerns, and relationships. I take a client-centered, strengths-based approach integrating skills and strategies backed by science. It is important to me to provide a warm, welcoming, and non-judgmental space for my clients. I enjoy bringing humor into the work with my clients and find this connection helpful in the therapeutic relationship, along with empathy, active listening, and insight-oriented work. I am trained in Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT), Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT), Exposure Therapy for anxiety, and Mindfulness and Compassion. We may find it effective to incorporate skills work into your individualized plan. If you have the willingness to begin your journey towards growth and change, you will find a partner in me.
