Transforming Issues Such as Anxiety, Depression, and Trauma with EMDR and Mindfulness-Based Somatic Therapy.
I specialize in EMDR (highly effective for healing trauma), Mindfulness-Based Somatic Therapy (emotions/sensations in the body in the present moment), and Parts Work influenced by Internal Family Systems (exploring the feelings/needs of the many parts within us). My approach to counseling is compassionate and non-judgmental, and I provide a safe space for you to turn toward your experience rather than away. A whole body-mind approach is much more effective than talk therapy alone.
I also use a variety of other forms of therapy including Hakomi, Contemplative Therapy, Person-Centered (Rogerian) Therapy, Gestalt Therapy, Existential Therapy, Non-Violent Communication, Relational Life Therapy, and Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy. I have a Master’s Degree in Counseling, I am a Board Certified Counselor with the NBCC, and I am Licensed with the North Carolina Board for Licensed Clinical Mental Health Counselors.
Insurance accepted. I accept Blue Cross and Blue Shield (including the State Health Plan), Friday Health Plans, and self-pay. Sessions are available by secure Telehealth online video anywhere in North Carolina. Most insurance plans cover therapy sessions, often for free or for as little as a $5 copay per session! Feel free to book an appointment online and I will send you an intake packet. I look forward to meeting you.
