I am glad you decided to take the first step towards improving your mental well-being. We all go through unique life experiences that can be difficult to navigate alone. I’m dedicated to helping individuals learn to cope with day-to-day challenges to improve their quality of life. I utilize an eclectic therapy model which allows the most effective practices available to address each client’s individual needs.
I spent 40 years living on the coast of South Carolina in the beautiful town of Beaufort; a wonderful employment opportunity brought me to Greenville, SC in 2015. During my free time, I love to travel and spend quality time with family and friends.
