I have always been drawn to the inner journey. It is a thrill and honor to be able to share that journey with another.

A healing modality I have discovered is Emotional Freedom Techniques, sometimes known as tapping. EFT brings together science, ancient healing methods (acupressure), language, and mindfulness into a simple, gentle technique for clearing obstacles to natural self-expression. It has been used to treat anxiety, trauma, to clarify and actualize goals, and to remove obstacles to personal growth, among other things. It is easy to learn and can be used independently or with the help of a practitioner.

Art has been a soul salve for me for as long as I can remember. I’ve made art for others, and myself, and used it therapeutically in our community. Twice a month I bring an art project to the Hospitality House. I have often heard people say, “This is so good for me,” and a sigh of letting go as they melt into the creative process. I believe the art making process helps us speak an inner language that we don’t always give voice to. The arts allow us to hear that still, small voice inside ourselves, eager to share its wisdom and insight.

As a Licensed Professional Counselor Associate, I am able to more comprehensively serve the needs of my clients. While we may include art or tapping in a therapeutic protocol, we will always seek the process that best meets your needs.

I received a Master of Arts in Professional School Counseling from Appalachian State University in 2011. I hold two professional certificates: a certificate in Expressive Arts Therapies and an EFT Intermediate Practitioner 1 Certificate in Emotional Freedom Techniques. I am currently operating as a Licensed Professional Counselor Associate (LPCA license #A12987).

My personal path has included community building through art, expressive arts therapies, meditation, tapping, yoga, gardening, and quilting. I’ve shared my passions with others in our community through such organizations as Blackburn Community Outreach, Mountain Peacemakers, Creative Peacemaker Center, and Elkland Art Center.
