I believe that your healing path should be just as unique as you are, and that you are the expert on your history and experience. In our work together, we will develop strategies to support your growth and goals based on your current patterns, life’s ups and downs and your vision of the future. On your healing journey we will also discover ways for you to learn to express yourself more freely and proudly, even when speaking about uncomfortable subjects. Over time, you will also learn and develop coping skills that will enable you to be the best version of yourself. My ultimate goal is to help you unlock your full potential with the personal integrity that you deserve. In our work together, we will define and cultivate the true YOU, mending the patterns of the past and building the frameworks of a stable, happy life. I can’t wait to work with you.
Born and raised here in Asheville, I am a true local (a rarity!). I grew up on a farm just outside of town, surrounded by nature. I have a bachelors in art with a focus in ceramics, and I love making functional objects. After completing my undergraduate degree, I decided to become a hairstylist, which was my career prior to following my dream of becoming a mental health therapist. I received my masters degree in social work from East Tennessee State University. I love spending time exploring nature, camping, hiking, sitting by any body of water, and spending time with family and friends.
I utilize an Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT) framework, and am Domestic Violence trained and informed. I incorporate mindfulness practices in my approach, and operate from a person-centered perspective.
