Are you lost? In need of support?

I offer individual therapy, couples counseling, pre-marital counseling, family therapy, and individual/couples distance coaching. My work is informed by depth psychology, strategic and family systems therapy, emotionally focused and attachment science, positive psychology, and mindfulness-based cognitive therapy approaches.
My approach provides you the support to help you to establish goals and actions for positive outcomes for your life and your relationships. I use the most effective, research-based methods available.

With 25 years in private practice, I have a solid base of experience and advanced professional education to provide well regarded psychotherapy, consultation, coaching, and training services to individuals, couples, families. I also offer professional supervision.

If you travel extensively, live, or work outside of the Charlotte area, I am available for remote individual and couples coaching services worldwide.
