counseling, consulting & writing services

Being a counselor is a blessing and privilege, and I love it! Unfortunately, with my various responsibilities, I have very limited availability for private practice. Before emailing me to see if I am available, please consider these important factors:

I am licensed to practice in North Carolina and can only counsel with residents of North Carolina who are actually in the State at the time of our session.

I do not have an “in person” office space but do “distance counseling” by way of the internet. Distance counseling is a confidential and convenient option, but it’s not a good fit for every client.

As for my areas of expertise, I specialize in helping people with the following goals:

  • realizing your self-worth,
  • achieving personal growth goals, 
  • building and/or repairing relationships,
  • parenting more effectively,
  • determining career direction, and
  • managing mild to moderate symptoms of anxiety and depression.

Because I have limited availability, you may want to look into doing a free consultation through Focus on the Family. CLICK HERE for more information about that option. Or, you may want to research your area listings for professional counselors who match with your particular interests and needs. The main thing is, don’t give up on counseling as an option. Counseling helps!

My costs are as follows:

  • $80 for an individual session
  • $120 for a couple or family session
  • Variable rates for group counseling, retreats, and consulting

I accept cash, check, and debit/credit card payments. Sorry, I do not accept third-party/insurance reimbursement at this time.

Note: If you are experiencing a mental health crisis or are otherwise in danger, call 911 or go to your nearest area emergency room for immediate assistance. 

I counsel with adults and older teenagers (teenagers must have signed parental consent). I also provide clinical supervision for post-graduate counselors who are working toward licensure in North Carolina. I do not currently offer internships, but perhaps one day!

Master’s degree in Counseling from Wake Forest University (1998); PhD in Counseling and Counselor Education from UNC Greensboro (2009); Licensed Clinical Mental Health Counselor in North Carolina since 2000; and Licensed Supervisor since 2012.

I love consulting with individuals and groups to develop and improve programs and projects. I also partner with people on a wide range of writing projects. Among some of my collaborations are: co-authoring two books with NY Times bestselling author, Dr. Gary Chapman; writing some of the 5 Love Languages quizzes; writing the “RQ Assessment,” an online quiz in support of Dr. Dharius Daniels’ Relational Intelligence book; and consulting with author Tommy Brown on the development of his Seven Money Types Assessment.

I am very open about my Christian faith, and I work with people of all faiths. Sometimes we talk about faith, sometimes we don’t; but, no matter whether we’re counseling or working together on a project, I’m comfortable with me being me and you being you!
