I hold a Master of Arts Degree in Counseling and Theological Studies from Gordon-Conwell Theological Seminary and am a Licensed Professional Counselor in the state of North Carolina (#6633). I also hold a lifetime membership with Psy-Chi, an International Honor Society in Psychology. My clinical experience began at the College of Charleston where I received a Bachelor’s Degree in Psychology and did research on behavior motivation.
I have specialized in various areas of psychology, beginning with art and play therapy with children in which I frequently lead group therapy sessions for children and pre-teens dealing with boundaries, self-esteem, communication and anger management. I also have a therapeutic skill set in premarital counseling, couples therapy, individual psychotherapy and family therapy, with a specialization in the area of intimate partner abuse and domestic violence. Throughout my schooling, I completed an internship with Dr. Lawrence Le Shan treating cancer patients and their caregivers, as well as Psychosocial immunology and social oncology with the Simonton Cancer Center specializing in cognitive behavioral psycho-therapy.
My most recent occupational experience has been the completion of comprehensive clinical assessments and treatment recommendations to assist in care coordination with medical and legal referrals for various agencies and providers involved in a client’s care. I am a contract therapist with New Beginnings serving as a licensed mental health clinician offering comprehensive clinical assessments and therapy for psychiatric patients who are federally mandated with the United States Department of Justice.
In all, I have over 20 years of clinical counseling experience and I continue to strive to improve in my chosen field by offering the best standards of care and by contributing to the field of psychology through ethical practices, clinical research, and patient focused care.
