Whether you are considering getting help because of your mood, a sense of dissatisfaction with your life, or a specific problem or relationship, therapy provides an opportunity to talk in a confidential, non-judgmental setting. You may feel alone with your distress regardless of friends or family. This is especially true if you are depressed or dealing with either personal or a loved one's substance abuse, as these issues are not always readily understood by others. If you are feeling discouraged, unmotivated, or even hopeless, be aware that a part of the process of therapy can be to borrow the hope and more positive perspective of your therapist.

In my experience, therapy improves one's ability to connect with internal resources and express feelings that may be unacknowledged, seem unacceptable, or even be overwhelming. Particularly if you grew up with an alcoholic or an abusive parent, therapy can help you identify how the coping that helped you survive then is interfering with your life now. The skills that can be learned in therapy can make the difference between someone who is struggling and someone who is better able to cope with relationships and other areas of life. I encourage clients to practice strategies to address negative thinking patterns and problems with anxiety and communication. I also challenge clients to take risks, operating with the belief that no change is too small. I regularly connect clients to resources in the community, including twelve-step programs.

I am a NC Licensed Clinical Social Worker and have been in private practice since 1987. I also worked for nineteen years at the Wake County Alcoholism Treatment Center which provided the opportunity to work with a diverse group of people. I have experience and interest in working with gay, lesbian, and bisexual clients.
