Clinical Psychologist in Charlotte, NC

About My Clients

My specialty areas include relationship difficulties, anxiety, depression, identity & sexual orientation issues, & all of the psychological issues that arise in adulthood. I also provide the testing and assessments that are often required in international adoptions. I have particular expertise in the area of the psychological needs of couples and families including a special focus on poly families, Queer families and adoptees and their families throughout the lifespan.

My Background and Approach

Psychotherapy is sometimes the most effective way to begin to blossom. The slow and comfortable establishment of mutual trust will come first as we work to fully understand your unique personality and situation. Together we will explore the the source(s) of pain or struggle in your life & identify practical, workable solutions. You & I will work as a team to ensure you have the support you need as you begin to feel better about yourself and your life.

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

My personal background as a lesbian, social justice activist, adoptive mom, member of an extended birth family, parent of four and all the other ups and downs of life and identity have informed my work as a licensed psychologist. I trained at Howard University Counseling Center for several years, Gallaudet University for my PhD, and have been in private practice for almost 20 years now. I work with every kind of folk but I do think it is particularly important for those of us with stigmatized identities to find helping professionals who don't need our oppression or basic struggles explained to them.
