Clinical Social Worker in Fayetteville, NC


About My Clients

My clients are often asking themselves: Will it ever get better? What's wrong with me? Who am I? Is what happened to me violence? Will I ever make peace with my body? Why did my family keep this secret? Why can't I get over 'it'? They might be recovering from intimate partner violence, narcissistic abuse, disordered eating, emotionally immature parents, leaving high demand groups, DNA discoveries, adoption search/reunion, childhood trauma, perfectionism and shame. You don't have to do it alone.

My Background and Approach

As a Social Worker, my style is eclectic. I'm less worried about which modality we're using and more worried about connecting with you, learning what your lived experience is like, and providing insight. Techniques used vary session to session, based on your needs, in the moment. To me, our work together is not about what’s “wrong” with you – it’s about what happened to you, and how you can move forward in a new way. I bring a broad range of experience to our relationship - hospital, hospice, child abuse prevention, sexual violence, domestic violence, anti-oppression community work, adoption search and reunion, legislative advocacy, and more. My style has been called refreshingly honest, direct, and I've been told I have a good "BS detector". I enjoy helping people learn to become better at trusting their own intuition. I like helping people who feel like their "life is a mess", and want to start living differently by making big changes. There is a lot of laughter in my office.

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

Regardless of family structure, gender identity, sexual orientation, religion, race, or other minority identity, you are welcome. Though it’s up to you to determine whether I meet the definition of ‘ally’, I will always do my best to provide a welcoming, inclusive, safe space for all, and view therapy through a social justice lens. I’m also someone who’s experienced burnout and body image issues, and someone who’s gotten through it with deep and extensive self-care, reflection, and big life transitions. I get it – change is hard, but you already have what you need within you to make it happen. If you're telling yourself you should be able to get better on your own, that's really not true. It's a made up rule you're telling yourself and it's rooted in stigma. Everybody needs some help sometimes!
