What's your cancellation policy?

Please remember to cancel or reschedule 24 hours in advance. There will be a $75 fee if cancellation is less than 24 hours.

Cancellations and rescheduled sessions will be subject to a full charge if not received at least 24 hours in advance. This is necessary because a time commitment is made to you and is held exclusively for you.

If you are late for a session, you may lose some of that session time.

What is a free initial phone consultation?
During the free 15-minute phone consultation, we will determine if we will be a good fit. You will have the opportunity to ask any questions and learn more about me as a therapist.
What can I expect in the first session?
You can expect to review your developmental background, mental health history, and your primary concerns. We will set goals and create a treatment plan to work together in your healing.
Does anyone cry in front of you?
Yes, I welcome tears. Your therapy session is a safe place to release all pent-up emotions, frustrations, fears, and especially tears.
Do I have to tell you everything?
No, you can tell me as much or as little information as you want. Our time together is focused on you showing up as your full, whole, and honest self.
Who benefits from therapy?

Therapy is a great place to process your emotions, heal from traumas and have a safe space to vent. The benefits of mental health therapy include gaining insight into one’s emotions, thoughts, and behaviors and developing coping strategies and skills to manage mental health challenges effectively.

Therapy provides a supportive and nonjudgmental space for individuals to explore their concerns, work toward personal growth, and improve overall well-being.

How do you work with clients?
I use CBT (Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy) to work with clients through talk therapy. I challenge you to be your best self through asking insightful questions and offering a unique perspective.
What else can I try to help myself?
Other forms of therapy and self-care practices can help you continue to care for yourself, including having a healthy exercise routine, eating healthy foods, and attending other support groups in your area.
How do I know if you are the right therapist for me?
During our first session, if you feel confident and comfortable working with me, I may be a good fit for you.
Is our work confidential?
Our work is confidential unless you state that you will harm yourself or others. I am a mandated reporter, and I will have to reach out to other supporters if you state that you are in danger or will be causing harm to someone else.
How long have you been in practice?
I have been a licensed therapist for seven years.
What are your strengths as a therapist?
As a therapist, my strengths include being open, authentic, and genuine with my clients. I meet you where you are and offer continued support throughout our time together. I challenge you to be your best self and hold space for you to heal.
Have you been in therapy yourself?
Yes! I love therapy. It’s one of many great tools to help yourself heal through various life struggles.
What is your educational background?
I have a Bachelor’s in Business Administration from the University of South Carolina. I also have two master’s degrees from North Carolina Central University, majoring in Career Counseling and Clinical Mental Health Counseling.
