I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker (LCSW) and an EMDR trained therapist providing trauma, relationship and grief counseling in Asheville, NC. I work with both adults and elders (65+) offering individual therapy.
My approach to therapy is drawn from both systems and attachment theories, with a significant emphasis on the family of origin of each client and their relationships with
primary attachment figures. I believe that our expectations of the world and others in it are significantly impacted by our early-life experiences. I frequently observe how patterns of interpersonal interaction are passed down through the generations and play out in our adult relationships. I offer treatment to identify those patterns and find solutions to break the cycles that negatively impact your life.
I am trained in EMDR - a life-changing treatment for clients struggling with traumatic memories, reactivity and anxiety - and frequently uses the EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization Resprossessing) model to organize my therapy.
I would describe myself as an interactive, solution-focused therapist. My therapeutic approach is to provide support and practical feedback to help clients effectively address personal life challenges. I integrate complementary methodologies and techniques, such as EMDR and relaxation training to offer a highly personalized approach tailored to each client. Using compassion and understanding, I work with each individual to help them build on their strengths and attain the personal growth they are committed to accomplishing.
I am known for my patience in allowing clients to move at their own pace while giving feedback when appropriate. I offer a warm, caring presence and a safe place to step out of your comfort zone and move on your own individual path toward healing and resolution. I look forward to working with you!
