In-person and online therapy services for the Charleston area and all over South Carolina



(and more...)


You're a millennial woman who has her shit together. You're ambitious with your career, education, and/or life goals. You have big ideas. You try to do some self-care every once in a while. You really are pretty well put together.


You're pretty badass.


And yet, you don't feel like it. You're not very nice to yourself when you make a mistake. You often want to say more or stand up for yourself, but hold back. You worry about everything. EVERYTHING. You look at social media and immediately compare. You don't feel like you're keeping up with people. You've been called a people-pleaser before and you don't disagree. You'd like to put yourself higher on your priority list, but that feels really fucking uncomfortable. Your high-achieving nature has had mixed results... some feel good and some don't.


Your goal is to be successful and happy, but you can't seem to get there. 

Therapy has maybe crossed your mind, but you felt it was too drastic.


It's not. It's just what you need. 

If you don't feel you fit the mold of what I've described, but you still think I'd be a good fit for you, reach out!! I'd love to chat and see how I can assist you! 

This means men are allowed!

LGBTQIA welcome!

I'm not your typical therapist. 

I'm real. I'm approachable. I have a potty mouth. And I don't think therapy should be some stale, clinical, sterile experience. That sounds like a real shitty therapy experience to me! 

I don't just put "approachable, nonjudgmental, transformative" at the top of my page to be showy. I truly practice with those things in mind. I may have gone through lengthy and specific education/training to be in the role I'm in, but that doesn't make me any better than you or the "expert" of your life. You're the expert of your life... I am just trained and skilled at using naturally flowing conversation to elicit the change you're seeking. 

Judgement has no place in therapy. Period. I am honored you choose to trust me, so no way am I going to tarnish that and ruin the therapeutic relationship with judging you. 

Finally, if you put in the time, the effort, and the work during the therapy process, you will absolutely be transformed. 

I'm willing to invest in you... are you ready to invest in yourself? 

You can continue getting an idea of my style by visiting my Blog or my Instagram page!

(If you care about the more clinical stuff like my treatment modality, I practice from a generally Rogerian standpoint and I pull primarily from Acceptance and Commitment Therapy as well as Cognitive Behavioral Therapy with some Motivational Interviewing thrown in there. Feel free to ask more questions about this if you'd like!)

Individual Therapy Sessions

I provide 60-minute individual therapy sessions to adults ages 18 and up. Typically, I meet with clients on a weekly basis, though due to scheduling needs and other factors, this may vary. Expecting weekly sessions is a good start, but we can discuss what works best for you.  

Online Therapy

This means you get all therapy services (ya know, the approachable, nonjudgmental, transformative stuff) all online while you sit on your own couch rather than mine! You have access to live video sessions on a secure platform. This means my services are offered STATEWIDE and for those of you who may have difficulty accessing services or may have physical limitations that make office visits a struggle... I've got therapy for you!

**I do not write Emotional Support Animal letters.**
