Sometimes, life can throw a lot at you. It can be overwhelming and seem impossible to work through a myriad of complex feelings. Therapy can be the place for you to explore your feelings in a safe, nonjudgmental, productive way. From stress management to anxiety- from complex trauma to coping skills development, I am committed to partnering with you and reaching your personal goals.
I earned my Master’s Degree in Clinical Mental Health and School Counseling from Wake Forest University and am a Licensed Clinical Mental Health Counselor- Associate in North Carolina. I have five and half years of experience working with children and adolescents and their caregivers. My work at KKJ revolves around providing counseling services for children, adolescents, couples, and families. I also offer these services for Spanish speaking families.
My role is to come alongside you and provide a welcoming space for you to process whatever is going on in your life. As a counselor, I believe that everyone has the tools to heal themselves from within and our work together will unearth those tools and use them in a way that enhances your life. I empower my clients to confidently navigate the world, and I consider it a privilege to be a part of your journey!
I am also the practice's Multi-Media Manager, so contact me if you would like to be added to our newsletter list!

"One of my favorite quotes is by Maya Angelou- 'My mission in life is not merely to survive, but to thrive; and to do so with some passion, some compassion, some humor, and some style.' These words serve as a reminder that life is a gift and reiterate the importance of self-care. Life can be draining sometimes, so when I feel myself shifting into survival mode, I try to find activities that ground me and bring me relief- even if just for a moment. I have learned that taking even five minutes during my day to be mindful and show myself grace make can make all the difference. I take care of myself by cuddling with my pets, listening to audiobooks, and spending time in nature."
