I am, as my website suggests, a gentle therapist with many years of experience as an educator in both public and private schools, over 25 years as a teacher and later school counselor. In 2003, I earned licensure in the state of NC as a clinician and worked part time in this capacity. In 2010, I retired from the school system and have practiced as a clinician from my home. I not only have professional experience, but more many years in life experience to share with my clients as a fellow journey mate as they navigate life’s challenges.
I believe that to every problem, there is at least one good solution, usually more than one. I use person centered approaches and reality therapy to seek and plan for forward steps to the presenting issue during each session together. Life is a series of transitions, often, my clients come to seek couple’s counseling.
