I am dually licensed by the state of North Carolina to offer services as a Licensed Clinical Mental Health Counselor (LCMHC) and a Licensed Clinical Addictions Specialist (LCAS). I am also a Certified EMDR therapist.  I graduated with a Master's Degree in Clinical Mental Health Counseling from the University of North Carolina in Charlotte in 2012.  I also have an MBA from Clemson University and worked for nearly a decade in corporate banking.  

In my practice, I use evidenced-based treatments that are backed by extensive research.  I believe this gives clients the best opportunities for healing and growth in the most efficient manner possible.
