I am currently seeing clients in person (wearing masks and social distancing) and by telehealth. I ask that clients be within driving distance of my office in case in person visits are preferred in the future.
I am a Psychotherapist for women in Franklin Square which is conveniently located between Trader Joe’s and I-40 in Chapel Hill. I would like to help you be the woman you want and live the life you choose. We work together to manage anger, anxiety, and depression and improve relationships with partners, family and friends. Therapy provides a safe and supportive place for you to explore your emotions and needs so you can feel more confident and at peace in your life. I specialize in working with women over 25 until 80.
Some of the issues I address in Psychotherapy:
- Stress/ Anxiety
- Relationship/ Family Issues
- Physical Health Problems/Aging
- Low Self-Esteem/Low Self-Worth
- Parenting Issues
- LGBTQ+ Issues
Therapy takes courage.
Being vulnerable and sharing your story with a therapist takes courage. Many women feel shame and confusion because of their past, sadness or anxiety about their present life, or negatively judge themselves or their bodies. By sharing these stories and feelings in therapy, shame “can’t survive”. * Through this sharing and learning self-compassion, you move from self-criticism towards self-acceptance.
Therapy is personal.
I want you to feel comfortable with the way we approach your therapy. I have a practical approach that blends elements of Psychodynamic Therapy, Compassion-Focused Therapy, some elements of DBT and a Solution-Focused approach. You can personalize your therapy by guiding me in how you would like to approach therapy. When you begin therapy, you may feel overwhelmed by emotions and see no end to pain, anxiety, anger or grief. I will listen and be there as you explore your life and goals, and help you develop ways to feel better and improve your life.
Women are exhausted/stressed by multiple roles we play in relationships, as caretakers of children or our parents, as family members and friends. Therapy helps you examine how negative patterns that bring you fear, sadness and loneliness may have developed and find your way through difficult times and life changes.
You can take charge and change your life as you can gain insight into yourself.
