Child, Adolescent and Adult Psychological Services

Contact Me


I am a Licensed Psychologist who offers psychological services in Greensboro NC. I have a general practice helping individuals and couples overcome mood disorders, anxiety orders, eating disorders and relationship difficulties to help them live more full and productive lives.


I have over 15 years of experience in counseling and psychotherapy. My training has enabled me to find the right therapeutic approaches that can help my clients overcome their problems. I strive to create a safe and confidential environment in which the client feels comfortable. I am also an Adjunct Faculty member and executive coach at the Center for Creative Leadership in Greensboro where I coach executives from all over the world, and also teach conflict resolution classes.

My Approach

My approach is positive, affirming, and nurturing, yet, at times, confrontational if need be. I also incorporate humor in my therapy sessions when appropriate. Since I strive to give my clients access to the best therapies available, I am constantly reading new research studies and attending seminars for my own knowledge. Being on the cutting edge of research and treatment approaches enables me to provide customized care and clients report that I am genuinely attuned to their needs. I do not believe in a "one size fits all" model for my patient care.
