Therapist for women and mothers, dually licensed in North Carolina and South Carolina.
I am passionate about supporting women and mothers along their life’s journey. Expectations do not always align with the reality of a woman’s experience leaving many with feelings of guilt, anger, sadness, and loneliness that may further alienate them from feeling safe to express themselves to others openly and honestly. I have had countless conversations with women in the hospital setting about how alone they felt at times during their motherhood journeys. Having a safe, warm, unconditionally accepting space where you can express yourself openly and honestly is the space that I strive to create for my clients within our counseling relationship.
From both my personal experience as a mother of three, and my professional experiences, I have found that not enough of these safe accepting spaces exist for women to heal in the ways in which they deserve. Taking care of ourselves as women and mothers has a rippling impact on everyone around us. When we learn to show up for ourselves, we can then better show up for those closest to us. Making yourself a priority may be a new and uncomfortable concept, but one that is beyond well worth it.
Professionally I have dedicated my career to helping those around me. I earned my first degree from Penn State University in Human Development and Family Studies. I used this foundation to help children and their families struggling with learning and behavioral disorders. Looking to further my development and make larger impacts, I earned my second degree in Nursing from Mount Aloysius College.
As a registered nurse I specialized in labor and delivery and postpartum nursing. It was in my more than 10 years of nursing that I found my passion for helping support women, their partners, and family members through the multitude of emotions that accompany entering into parenthood.
Knowing that I had more to offer, in 2023, I earned my master’s degree from Lindsey Wilson College in Counseling and Human Development to become a Provisionally Licensed Mental Health Counselor in both North and South Carolina. I look forward to meeting with you and walking alongside you at whatever point you are on your life’s journey.
