I am a licensed clinical social worker and an art therapist.  While earning my undergraduate degree at Wake Forest I volunteered at Hospice of Winston-Salem.  There I witnessed first-hand the incredible benefits of using art as a vehicle for therapeutic discussions in children’s therapy.  The experience encouraged me to pursue and achieve a Master in Art Therapy as well as a Master of Social Work.  Today, I continue to enjoy the unique benefits of incorporating art therapy exercises in my therapeutic work with infants, children, and families.  I’ve practiced social work in various mental health provider settings which include: residential facilities, partial hospitalized programs, school-based mental health programs, outpatient programs, after-school programs, and home based settings.  By incorporating play and/or art into our therapy sessions I create a relaxed, fun, and engaging environment that promotes growth and change.  I believe that a positive parent/child relationship is the core foundational element for a successful and healthy family.  Trust, empathy, humor, and active listening are the building blocks I utilize in my interactions with children and their parents.  My goal is to help you adopt these same communication techniques; enabling you to deal with your unique family situation without continued assistance. 

I grew up in Gastonia, North Carolina and have practiced in New Haven, Conn; Prince Georges County, Maryland; Washington, D.C.; Fairfax, VA; and now, Charlotte, N.C.  I currently reside in Charlotte with my husband, our son and a crazy dogs.
