I am a Mooresville native, growing up in the Shepherds community. I attended the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. After graduation, I worked at Connie Maxwell Baptist Children’s Home in Greenwood, SC. I enjoy working with children and helping them develop strong, healthy spirits.
I am a Licensed Professional Counselor (#8916). I received my Master’s degree in Agency Counseling from Lenoir-Rhyne University in 2011. During my internships, I worked in the Delta Unit at Davis Regional Medical Center and at New River Behavioral Healthcare, which are both located in Statesville, NC. I enjoy working with men and women of all ages as well as couples.
“I have been crucified with Christ and I no longer live, but Christ lives in me. The life I live in the body, I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave himself for me.” Galatians 2:20
Life is difficult. It is easy to get bogged down by its complexities and lose focus. I feel that my greatest strength is being an encourager. As your counselor, I will encourage you and help you view your issues in a new, fresh light.
I am a very visual person. We will work together as a team to diagram, list, or draw out the issues at hand. At your pace, we will set realistic, achievable goals. I will utilize Reality, Cognitive-Behavioral, and Gestalt therapies.
I enjoy meeting new people. I look forward to helping you obtain the freedom and zest for life that you have always desired.
I relax by reading dense historical biographies, playing recreational tennis and basketball, petting my dogs, playing with my son, and cooking with my wife. I also paint in watercolors and design stained glass windows.
