Licensed Mental Health Counselor in Cleveland, NC


About My Clients

My ideal clients are women in their 20-40's that care deeply & often give too much of themselves, have frequent anxiety, some burn out or depressed mood, difficulties with boundaries & work/life balance. I also enjoy helping veterinarians/animal care professionals, teachers, & college students with burnout, compassion fatigue, & chronic stress. All sessions are offered online & getting started is introvert friendly!

My Background and Approach

I have found that it works best to provide tangible skills to help change behavior, thought, & relational patterns that are no longer serving us, so although sessions are always conversational & focused on your needs, I also incorporate a variety of evidence-based approaches tailored to you, including Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT), Cognitive Behavior Therapy (CBT), existential counseling, & mindfulness skills - all from a secular (not faith based) perspective. As soon as we begin working together you will start learning skills you can apply immediately to improve your interactions with others, boundary setting, self-advocacy, management of emotions/ anxiety, &creating a life you love. I also provide ample support & nonjudgmental listening to explore & process anything important to you.

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

I care about providing a safe, inclusive space for everyone. I enjoy providing support in navigating day to day & existential frustrations that come along with animal & environmental advocacy, particularly for those of us living in more rural, small town areas. Veterinarians & animal care professionals give so much to their careers, often dealing with staffing shortages, long hours, poor boundaries, poor pay, heartbreaking cases – I’m happy to provide a safe space for these professionals to learn to manage their anxiety, burnout, & compassion fatigue. I'm a member of the Secular Therapy Project & provide therapy from a secular perspective. You deserve therapy that is safe, evidence-based, & won’t result in the therapist pushing their beliefs. I enjoy helping people build skills to cope w/ the isolation & stigma that can come along with not being part of the dominant religion in your area, questioning/deconstructing/leaving religion, and/or healing from religious trauma.
