About Me

How I support you in your recovery
I support you in finding your community. I believe it is important to find a healthy support network so we can continue to practice vulnerability, grow and have a support system to hold us when things are challenging. I support you in trying new things, by walking alongside you and taking steps, whether large or small. I believe it is important for you to know we don’t have to do this alone; we are worthy of connection and love. 

How I support you in building a relationship with self
Relationship with self looks different for every person. I love supporting my clients during different adjustments in life. One thing that can stay constant during those adjustments is relationship with self. I support my clients by getting connected and learning to read their body to identify their needs as well as their wants. I teach you self regulation strategies, understanding their tolerance for stress responses, as well as learning to give permission to rest. Our body holds onto so many memories and negative life experiences that sometimes it numbs our body. As a parent, it is tough for me to put my needs first. I teach parents how to support their needs while being a parent. 

My Personal Recovery Journey
I am in recovery for perfectionism and people pleasing. I am constantly working on finding balance within myself and my environment. I continue to work the program of ACOA (Adult Children of Alcoholics and Dysfunctional Families) through connecting with my inner child work. 

My Experience
I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker and a Licensed Clinical Addiction Specialist in North Carolina, a Licensed Independent Social Worker, Clinical Practice, in South Carolina, an International Board Certified Lactation Consultant, and Perinatal Mental Health Certified. I am also a Clinical Social Work Supervisor. I have 10 years experience in the field, including experience in a treatment center, schools, as a lactation consultant, and in outpatient therapy. I obtained my master’s degree in Social Work from Winthrop University in 2016 and completed my internship and first clinical experiences with The HC. I joined The HC team again in 2023. I obtained my Bachelor of Arts degree in Psychology from Clemson University in 2014. I am an experiential therapy resident with a special interest in maternal mental health. 

More About Me
I am a mom of two boys. The way I connect with myself is I enjoy connecting with the earth either by walking barefoot outside in the grass, snow skiing or walking on the beach. I love to travel, workout and run.

— What Element Do You Resonate With —


“I feel refreshed and grounded when I am outside connecting to the earth. The grass, snow, sand, or water allows me to feel safe with my inner child. The earth gives me shape, stability, and allows me to feel replenished and renewed. I enjoy being one with nature.”
