Do you want to make changes but find it difficult to do on your own? Are you ready to improve yourself and your life?

Reaching out for help is always challenging, but it can also be very rewarding. Together we will embark on a journey that will alleviate your suffering and help you let go of past patterns and hurts. I consider it a privilege to witness your healing emotional journey. In our work together, I will use tools and techniques that are proven to work, including cognitive behavioral strategies and brief solution-focused approaches. These interventions will help you improve your problem-solving skills, resilience and sense of peace and well-being.

In my work with teens, I understand how tumultuous these years can be and how alone and worried parents feel. I will engage with your adolescent about what matters while supporting you through this journey.

I work with the following types of clients: couples, parents and teens, and families who are dealing with conflict, depression, anxiety, separation/divorce, grief, stress and anger management. I also frequently work with female clients on women’s issues.

I am in the process of being credentialed with the following insurance plans:

  • Tricare
  • Medicaid (First Choice, Absolute Total Care)

I am credentialed with the following plans:

  • Medicaid, Healthy Connections
  • Blue Cross Blue Shield, all out of state  plans as well as PAI, Thomas Cooper, Federal and SC state plans)
  • First Choice Medicaid
  • Absolute Total Care Medicaid
  • Molina Medicaid

I can currently accept self pay clients and our staff can bill the sessions using your out-of-network benefits. Our administrative staff will clarify what your insurance covers and let you know what the cost of our sessions will be.
