Services

Counseling Services Offered

Growth can be accomplished in several different ways including individual counseling, group therapy and/or "walk & talk" therapy. I offer all of those and more including early morning appointments. These are some of the ways I can help:

Individual Counseling

I offer individual, couple or family sessions. We can sort out what's ailing you, create a sustainable treatment plan, and optimize your performance or restore work-life balance.


Group Therapy

This is a wonderful and often under-utilized tool in creating change in your life. I facilitate a number of groups depending on the time of the year and the needs of my clients. Topics might range from parenting the child with ADHD/LD, women's empowerment, or healing from sexual trauma.


EMDR

Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) is a powerful psychotherapy approach has helped over an estimated two million people of all ages relieve many types of psychological distress. It is an integrative psychotherapy approach that has been extensively researched and proven effective for the treatment of trauma. EMDR is a set of standardized protocols that incorporate elements from many different treatment approaches.

I have utilized EMDR in my counseling practice for many years with a high success rate of relieving the emotional distress trauma can often leave behind. We don’t erase the memories. We simply allow the brain to finish processing the traumatic events which relieves the body of holding on to those distressing emotions.

To read more about EMDR, I highly recommend the following:

Walk & Talk Therapy

This unique opportunity to engage in Cognitive Behavioral Therapy while walking the nearby Long Branch Trail is a benefit not only to the mind, but also to the body.

I will meet you at a mutually agreed point on the trail & away we go for a 1 hour session. I am an expert at discussing your needs in a discreet manner while walking the beautifully landscaped path downtown Winston-Salem. What a wonderful way to blend mental health with physical health wellness.


Online Video Therapy

I offer 45 minute video counseling sessions for clients located in NC. These sessions are designed to meet you where you are. They are completed via a secure and HIPAA compliant platform. Insurance does not cover online therapy at this time, but this is a great alternative for SOME individuals or couples that need solution-focused counseling services and are not located in the Winston-Salem area. Established clients can also benefit from utilizing this format if they are traveling but would still like to keep doing their therapy work.


Early Morning Appointments

We live in a busy world and a busy time. Additionally, often times busy-ness is rewarded financially.

In an effort to offer clients who work in the downtown area a more flexible approach to fitting in therapy during the workweek, I will offer appointments as early as 7am on selected days. This will be especially beneficial for those who work 3rd shift at the hospitals or professionals who need to dash in before diving in to their busy work days.

Other Services Offered

Integrated Listening Systems (iLs)

iLs is a multi-sensory program for increasing brain function. The activities are fun and can be customized for all ages and skill levels. Services provided in office or via supervised in-home use.

This approach can be extremely effective in creating new neural pathways and reducing anxiety and ADHD symptoms in a LONG-LASTING way. The sessions are painless, fun and engaging. Think of it as occupational therapy for the brain!  I've seen this approach create quiet miracles and is an amazing alternative to medicine.

The integrated Listening website is a wealth of information on this neurologically based approach to change.  Visit them here...

Retreat & Teach Events

I lead half day retreat events throughout the year at the beautiful and spacious Bermuda Run Country Club. Brunch is always included and the topics vary. In 2018, retreats will include a women's empowerment series and a “Calming the Mind” series.


Coaching & Consulting

This can be an invaluable tool for life transitions or moving through difficult decisions. It can also be a wonderful tool for clinicians who are stuck in building a practice or need encouragement in the field.
