I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker working with adults age 18 and over, families, couples and groups.  I have spent more than 30 years practicing in the areas of family services, mental health and long-term care services for elders.  My specialities include helping persons experiencing PTSD, anxiety, depression, mid-life, aging and other transitions, grief and loss, compassion fatigue, and working with couples and families wanting help with relationship and parenting issues.  My offerings include individual/couple/family therapy, therapy groups focusing on a variety of issues including groups for women and men in transition and persons in care taking roles experiencing secondary and vicarious trauma.

I use a variety of clinical, therapeutic, supportive and psycho-educational approaches and can include the use of scientifically  researched EFT (Emotional Freedom Technique/Certified Practitioner Candidate), specialized trauma/compassion fatigue intervention (IATP Compassion Fatigue Certification pending), as well as meditation and mindfulness practices for those interested in learning and using these mental and physical health tools.  Energy medicine techniques, calming the mind and following the breath through mindfulness and contemplative  practices have been scientifically proven to be extremely useful and effective methods in the relief of anxiety, tension, physical pain, stress, and depression.
I received a Master’s Degree in Social Work from the University of Vermont in 1996 and a Certificate of Training in Mindfulness & Psychotherapy from the Institute for Meditation & Psychotherapy, Boston, MA in 2010.  I hold clinical licenses in both North Carolina and Vermont.
