About Me

You strive to be the best, the best partner, the best parent, the best at the office, but you always feel like you fall short. Will life always be this chaotic and exhausting? Despite your best efforts, there never seems to be enough time in the day. After caring for so many others in your life, you struggle to care for yourself. You're constantly running on empty. Although you recognize the patterns in your life you don't want to repeat, you can't seem to stop the cycle. In the past, you've tried to make changes on your own, but nothing works long-term. You're stuck and not sure what to do next. You're ready to bring balance to your life and feel confident in your decisions. Imagine feeling capable even in moments of stress, knowing you are enough. Using primarily CBT and EMDR, I help adults with trauma, anxiety, and issues in pregnancy/postpartum. I also work with couples navigating their relationship as they expand their family. Let's work together to create a plan to accomplish your goals and find hope again. While I am based in downtown Charleston, online counseling gives us the flexibility to connect anywhere in South Carolina.

Education & Experience

I am a Licensed Professional Counselor, LPC (#9857), with a master's degree in clinical counseling psychology from The Citadel. Some of my most rewarding work has been working with new parents. I am certified in perinatal mental health (PMH-C) from Postpartum Support International which means I have received advanced training in helping clients navigate their way through parenthood. I am an EMDRIA EMDR Certified therapist.
