Present Practice Counseling

Counseling. Yoga. Meditation.


Mindful Living




There are times in life where we all feel exposed... vulnerable... and unsure.  Life can seem scary, frustrating, hopeless, and chaotic.  We forget who we are or admit we don't know where we are going.  Life experiences and our mindset can stop us from living.  


My job as a mental health counselor is to serve as a guide during these difficult times.  The support of another could be the key in unlocking a door you once thought was closed forever.  


I hold a graduate degree in Counseling Psychology and I am licensed through the North Carolina Board of Professional Counselors.  I combine my personal interest in art, music, and yoga with counseling interventions to integrate all aspects of human experiences: mind, body, and spirit. I offer counseling services using expressive, cognitive behavioral, multiculturally aware, and skill based interventions to create stability for things we can change and yielding with flexibility to things we can not.


Learn to let go.  Start to live the life you were born to live.
