Welcome to my practice in Professional Counseling and Coaching, with offices in Charlotte (SouthPark) and Columbia (Downtown/USC). I am a Licensed Professional Counselor with specialized training and experience in Cognitive Behavior Therapy (CBT), University Counseling, Gottman Couples Therapy, LGBTQ Issues, Pastoral Counseling, and Exercise & Sport Psychology. I see adults, college students, and adolescents (Age 15 and over) for individual psychotherapy, couples counseling, and life/career coaching.


  • Anxiety, Panic, Social Anxiety, Stress, and Related Issues
  • Relationship & Sexual Issues
  • Men
  • College & Young Adults
  • Bi/Pansexual, Gay, and Lesbian
  • Exercise & Sport Psychology
  • Depression, Grief, and Related Issues
  • Spirituality—especially, but not limited to, Christian

My approach is empathetic, straightforward, nonjudgmental, and primarily talk-based. I emphasize client strengths from a positive, wellness perspective. As a Ph.D.-level practitioner, I bring an additional four years of rigorous study, research, and supervision in the nationally recognized counseling program of the University of North Carolina at Greensboro. I have additional professional experience as a Professor of Counseling & College Student Affairs, and in pastoral ministry, with a Master of Divinity degree from Duke University.

I take pride in offering my clients a quality therapeutic relationship with personal service. The longer I work with you, the better I understand your unique self—and the more effective I can be in helping you reach your goals. Yes, quality Counseling and Coaching can be a financial investment. It's an investment I made in myself as a client years ago and I can attest to the value of that experience. I hope you'll value yourself enough to Invest in You—whether in my practice or another.

Let me know how I might help.
