Are you tired and overwhelmed with life's challenges? Do you feel "stuck" in a pattern or are you living with the devastating effects of a trauma, depression, anxiety, an affair, divorce or is your family experiencing a crisis? As a counselor specialized in Marriage and Family Therapy I work with individuals, couples and families. I offer a caring, confidential and nonjudgmental environment, where you can explore the factors that so greatly impact your life and your relationships with others. In a supportive environment we posses the ability to heal, grow and explore our dreams.
I specialize in working with individuals/couples/families focusing on issues such as marital conflict due to affairs, intimacy, co-parenting, divorce, addiction and grief. Traumatic experiences can significantly impact the way you relate to the world, however your past does not have to determine your future.
I am an associate at Asheville Psychotherapy Associates along with Trip Woodard, LMFT, LCSW. We serve working families and therefore offer some evening hours. My approach is based on Cognitive Behavioral and Family Systems therapy and EMDR. In case of a crisis due to infidelity, initial coaching can be offered over the phone.
