I am a North Carolina licensed clinical mental health counselor (LCMHCA), graduating from NC State with a master's in clinical mental health and hold National Counselor Certification (NCC). I also hold a master's degree in public administration and have been in executive healthcare management roles for over 25 years.
My passion is to help individuals deal with grief and loss in a way that restores them to a place of healing as they navigate into a whole new life. There is no one way, nor right way, to grieve. As unique as we are, our emotional needs and healing processes are also very unique. I support every client through a multicultural and holistic frame of reference, accepting all faiths and paths and working with each individual to heal mind, body and spirit.
The thing about loss, and the grief that it brings to us, is that we are often times not expecting it. And, even when we know a loved one may be passing, as prepared as we think we are, the power of grief can be daunting.
In addition to being Board Certified by the National Board for Certified Counselors, I am also a Certified Grief Counseling Specialist, and currently hold a Level 2 Certification as a Complicated Grief Specialist through the University of Columbia, Center for Complicated Grief.
If you are standing in new loss, battling a loss from long ago, or anticipating a loss of your own, know there is hope. There are ways to walk with grief, and integrate it into your life in ways that allow you to again find meaning and purpose for yourself. Let's take the journey, together.
