“Three things are hard….steel, a diamond, and to know oneself”

Benjamin Franklin

The therapeutic process is unique in all the world. It can be painful and exhilarating, incredibly challenging and unbelievably rewarding. It takes courage to begin the inward journey of asking hard questions, exploring and listening well to the answers that emerge.

Life is difficult and although much joy is present, pain is also inevitable. It is often the motivation of pain that brings people into the office of a psychotherapist. My desire is to meet people where they are, assist them in achieving the goals they set and help them become more of the person they want to be.

For over twenty years, I have been a Nationally Certified Counselor (#24966) and Licensed Professional Counselor (License #533) in Raleigh, NC. I am also a Certified Smoking Cessation Facilitator by the American Lung Association. I hold a Masters Degree of Education in Counseling from the University of Virginia, which l received in 1984. My experience includes working extensively with adolescents and adults and conducting individual, couples, family and group counseling. I’ve also led workshops on a variety of topics.
