MSW, LCSW, GC-C
Your struggle is real.
Look, I get it. I have endured my own share of trauma and grief. I can teach you what I have learned from my own experiences, as well as the long term solutions that work for my past clients.
I supplement all that experience with the latest in neuroscience research to put together the very best program for your current issues.
I have worked in health care settings for nearly 30 years, with a focus on midlife and older adults, cancer patients, women’s health, and hospice families. As a matter of fact, everyone in my extended family works in the medical or public safety field.
I earned a Master of Social Work degree from North Carolina State University, and completed the extensive training and board examination required to become a Licensed Clinical Social Worker in the state of North Carolina (License #C012358).
I am also licensed as an out-of-state telehealth provider in the the state of Florida: #TPSW314.
My Certified Grief Counselor designation was achieved after a rigorous 100 hour post-grad program and examination through the American Academy of Grief Counseling. I also serve my community as a registered yoga teacher (RYT-200) and meditation teacher, specializing in restorative and senior yoga for all abilities.

Our adorable dog, Molly, at Lake Benson.
Everyone loves a puppy pic, right?
My family has lived in rural Johnston County for 16 years. My husband and I enjoy camping and exploring local hiking trails with our little dog, Molly. Our two young adult children live nearby.
