Have current stressors in your life left you feeling stuck and defeated? Do you suffer from a lack of support in coping through your issues? Do you know that there are parts of you that you need to change but are struggling with the ‘how’?
While these difficulties are quite common, they may leave us feeling sad, lonely, angry, or confused. As your therapist, I will provide a safe and caring space for you to explore your life challenges free of judgment, and help you set realistic achievable goals towards a better you. I will work with you to help you gain insight into your problems and help motivate you to develop your own creative solutions catered to your own unique identities.
Over time I’ve found my passion for counseling to align well with my other love of reading and storytelling. Working alongside someone to become curious and invested in the stories of their lives, to examine how it’s been told and remembered over time, can at times be both an illuminating and empowering experience to watch throughout the therapeutic process. Helping people to discern and challenge entrenched core beliefs, and to entertain new ways of seeing themselves and their connection to their lives and their relationships is one of the most exciting parts of therapy for me as your therapist.
My approach to therapy is to hold space for you to tell your story, help you to affirm your life goals, obstacles, and related challenges, and to creatively collaborate in determining what will work best for you in overcoming roadblocks and setbacks in your life.
Throughout my time in the field of counseling, I have worked in various areas such as college counseling, child advocacy, and private practice. Common presenting issues I’ve found that I gravitate towards include depression, anxiety, trauma, self-esteem, life transitions, self-care, and work-life balance. I am a graduate of the College of Charleston and the Citadel, and after 2 years away spent working towards my licensure and riding out the beginning of the pandemic in Spartanburg, I am happy to be back home and starting a new chapter of my life in Charleston.
In my free time, I enjoy hanging out at the beach with a good book, swimming laps or biking, yoga, checking out new restaurants, catching up on my shows, being on or near the water in any form, and spending time with animals.
Nobody should have to suffer through life’s challenges alone. Asking for help is the first step to a new way of living.
