About Me

Board-certified professional counselor and addictions specialist in north Carolina.

I’ve spent the past 20 years helping people achieve goals. Along the way, I’ve developed a unique perspective on the nature of change that informs everything I do as a therapist, educator, and writer.

I’ve held a number of professional roles as an Educator turned Counselor, though it is my own personal experience with recovery from mental illness and substance abuse that makes me most effective as a catalyst for change.   

I believe that recovery from anything requires brutally honest self-reflection, dogged tenacity, and an unrestrained willingness to devour new information and alternative points of view. In my role as a Professional Counselor, I aspire to live up to this notion by providing insight, direction, and accountability.

I am a graduate of Florida State University and Lenoir-Rhyne University with master’s degrees in Education and Clinical Mental Health Counseling, respectively. I am licensed to practice mental health and addictions counseling in the State of North Carolina. I live in Hickory, North Carolina.

On a lighter note, I’m a Floridian by birth, an unapologetic Seminoles fan, a political and history buff, and an accomplished pop culture aficionado. I enjoy traveling, hiking, comic book conventions, and a well-prepared steak.
