My Training and Credentials
I hold a BA from Duke University in Religious studies, a M.S./Ed.S from The University of North Carolina-Greensboro in Marriage and Family Counseling and I am a Certified Integrative Health Coach (CIHC). As a Licensed Professional Counselor and National Certified Counselor, I have been providing mental health and family counseling services for 20 years. Recognizing the importance of using a holistic model to focus broadly on health and wellness, I chose training at Duke's Center for Integrative Medicine to offer new services to clients. Now, as a Certified Integrative Health Coach, I provide both coaching and counseling through my private practice as well as offering group work and presentations in business and community settings.

Integrative Health Coaching & Counseling
I have a strong commitment to working with individuals and families to bring out the best in themselves. With my background as a family therapist, I understand that many factors contribute to one's ability to succeed. I believe that each person has a unique set of strengths and an inner determination to live wisely. Through my coaching experiences with clients, I find that people who take persistent steps build better lives. Working with your positive expectations, my goal is to facilitate those changes that align with your highest hopes.
