Licensed Mental Health Counselor in Cleveland, NC

About My Clients

I provide a comfortable, nonjudgmental, & supportive space for womxn to learn skills to manage anxiety and depression by building self-worth, practicing new habits and boundaries, and creating a life they love. I also enjoy helping animal care professionals (veterinarians, vet techs, vetmed students, wildlife rehabilitators, etc.)cope with burnout, compassion fatigue, chronic stress, and depression while building work/life balance or integration.

My Background and Approach

Using evidenced-based techniques of Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT), Cognitive Behavior Therapy (CBT), existential counseling, and mindfulness skills from a secular perspective I can help you increase connection & intention in your life, identify & challenge unhelpful narratives & behaviors that aren't working, & create a life you love. Online sessions available statewide for North Carolina. Equine-Assisted sessions available in Mooresville. I accept private pay/self pay, most BCBS plans including State Health Plan, and Cigna. Superbills can also be provided to those with out of network insurance benefits. No calls please - Visit my website & complete the scheduling inquiry form for more information!

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

Animal advocacy, climate/environmental concerns, & ethical veganism/vegetarianism are near & dear to my heart. I understand the day to day & systemic frustrations that can come along with caring about these issues, especially when you live in an area that is not progressive or environmentally conscious. I'm a member of the Secular Therapy Project & provide evidence-based interventions from a secular, humanistic perspective.
