My education includes a B.S. from Duke University and a M.S. and Ph.D. from the University of Georgia. After my doctoral program, I participated in a post-doctoral fellowship in family therapy in Washington, D.C. during which I also participated in the formation of an ADHD clinic. After my postdoctoral fellowship, I moved to NC where I first worked in Fayetteville, NC before moving my practice to Raleigh, NC. In addition to my private practice with clients, I have conducted the learning disability testing for The Exploris School for over 10 years to help identify and respond to children's needs in the school environment.
I work with children, teenagers, and adults with a variety of behavioral, mood, and relationship challenges. Through cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT), we work to change thoughts, behaviors, and emotions that interfere with life satisfaction, happiness, day-to-day functioning and relationships. My therapeutic style also incorporates supportive therapy, parent therapy, and stress management. I strive to develop a collaborative and respectful relationship with my clients in a safe environment to decrease anxiety, improve mood and relationships, and help create a stronger sense of self-competency and self-worth. Specific areas of interest include anxiety, OCD, depression, ADHD, psychological testing, assessment of learning disabilities, life stress and relationship difficulties.
