My belief is that people seek counseling when they have
tried all the changes they can think of and now need to
talk with an objective counselor for guidance. Therapy is
more than supportive, empathetic listening. I actively
engage in helping my clients understand how their
problems developed and what changes are needed to
resolve the problem. My goal is to help all my clients
make steady progress toward their therapy goals in a
secure, confidential, and pleasant environment.
Experience from my first career as a Registered Nurse,
returning to college as an adult for my counseling
education, having my own major health problem, raising
two children, and working diligently to make my long and
happy marriage thrive and grow has helped me understand
the many situations that clients present in counseling.
When I returned to college I specifically sought training in Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy
because past experience and research demonstrate that this approach is highly
effective and can produce good results in a shorter time. Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy
focuses on helping to change behaviors, attitudes, and thoughts which can lead to
dramatic changes in how you feel, your relationships, and your happiness. My
association with a large, long established group practice, Eastern Psychiatric &
Behavioral Specialists, that employs adult and child psychiatrists, a developmental
pediatrician, family nurse practitioners, and child therapists gives you and your family
the opportunity to have comprehensive mental health care within one practice.
I received my Bachelor of Arts degree, magna cum laude, in sociology and my Master of
Arts degree from East Carolina University, majoring in marriage and family counseling.
After graduation I trained extensively with a counselor who was an American
Association of Marriage and Family Therapy approved expert.
I have held a Marriage and Family Therapist license (#440) from the state of North
Carolina since 1983. And, I have been a clinical member of the American Association of
Marriage and Family Therapists and the North Carolina Association of Marriage and
Family Therapists since 1987.
