- Family heirloom, Unknown Artist


Hello and Welcome! There are many roads that may have led you here, to seek human guidance and support for your very personal, inward journey. My hope is that anyone brave enough to seek and reach out for help may be met with fellow-humanity, humility, humor and optimism. My wish is that through some alchemy of interactions, experiences, and experiments in our work, you will know deeper wholeness and at-home-ness in yourself. And, in time, your naturally gifted strengths will become clear and available to you to make meaningful change for yourself and those around you.   


The Hats I Wear
  • Psychotherapist: I offer virtual therapy exclusive to North Carolina and Illinois clients.

  • Somatic Coach: I use Somatic Experiencing (SE) and the Safe and Sound Protocol (SSP) to address chronic emotional and physiological distress

  • Life Coach: I am certified to practice coaching internationally, supporting individuals in finding their purpose. I offer SSP and Life Purpose Coaching, focusing on parts integration and safe embodiment, among other approaches

  • Artist: I enjoy drawing, painting, and incorporating art into healing


My Locations
  • Office location is 310 E. Main Street, Carrboro, NC 27516

  • Licensed to practice psychotherapy in NC & IL

  • Available for somatic & life purpose coaching services worldwide


My Background
  • I've been working in private practice for over fifteen years.

  • My background is as a Licensed Clinical Social Worker (LCSW)

  • I'm always learning and evolving my work as new methods or old buried approaches catch my attention.

  • I'm creative and draw and paint to fill my bucket

  • I hold a BA from Columbia University and and an MSW from San Diego State University

  • Somatic Experiencing Practitioner (SEP) and Safe and Sound Protocol (SSP) Practitioner


The Way It Works
I like to keep it simple. I charge one flat rate whether I'm doing coaching or psychotherapy. You are paying for my time and I'm bringing everything I know to bare in our work.
Do I need Coaching or Therapy? The way I see it, there is a lot of crossover between coaching and therapy.  With therapy, I'm available in Illinois and North Carolina, there is a mental health diagnosis and I can accept some insurance plans. With coaching, I can work with you anywhere in the world.
Through a different lense, therapy is to help stabilize mental health conditions deriving from biology and trauma. Coaching is to create the conditions for an open and effective experience on Earth, unblocking the heart and spirit and organizing their potential into a coherent purpose. By first addressing mental health conditions and then contending with and optimizing what it is to be human, you can access your personal gifts and share them with the world.
I'm pumped! Let's get started!
