How does online therapy work?
Live-Video Counseling is the primary tool I use when working with you in therapy.
I offer Telehealth Services to anyone residing in the state of North Carolina.
The services I provide are also a mix of text-messaging and phone calls to make your therapeutic experience more productive. However, live-video counseling is the primary tool for most sessions because I am able to see and hear you. Allowing for a truer, more valid, view of how you are feeling, sounding, and thinking at that moment. Through live-video, it’s much like being in the same room together, except we can’t shake hands or hug at the end.
High Definition Clear · HIPAA Secure
I use a live-video platform that is HIPAA secure with ** high-quality HD video technology so that I can see and hear you clearly. I can see you, and you see me – without the traveling excursion. It’s a win-win!
**Connectivity depends largely on your internet provider.

I look forward to working with you soon!
I’ve never talked to anyone. I’m used to handling things on my own.
People who ask for help know when they need it and have the ability to reach out. Everyone needs help now and then.You already have some strengths that you’ve used before, and for whatever reason, they aren’t working right now. Perhaps this problem feels overwhelming and is making it difficult to access your past strengths. In our work together, I’ll help you identify what those strengths are and how to implement them again in what is happening now.
What’s the difference between talking to you or my best friend or family?
The difference is between someone who can do something, and someone who has the training and experience to do that same thing professionally. A mental health professional can help you approach your situation in a new way– teach you new skills, gain different perspectives, listen to you without judgment or expectations, and help you listen to yourself. Furthermore, therapy is completely confidential. You won’t have to worry about others “knowing my business.” Lastly, if your situation provokes a great deal of negative emotion, if you’ve been confiding in a friend or family member, there is the risk that once you are feeling better you could start avoiding that person so you aren’t reminded of this difficult time in your life.
How does it work? What do I have to do in sessions?
Because each person has different issues and goals for therapy, therapy will be different depending on the individual. I tailor my therapeutic approach to your specific needs.
I want to get the most out of therapy. What can I do to help?
I am so glad you are dedicated to getting the most out of your sessions. Your active participation and dedication is crucial to your success. After all, we only see each other for a session a week. It’s the work you do outside of our sessions that will really help you see your personal growth and development.
My partner and I are having problems. Should we be in individual counseling or come together?
If you are concerned about your relationship, and you would both like to work with me, I would initially work with both of you together. After this work, if one of you would like to continue in individual sessions, I could work with only one of you. It is not helpful to move from individual into couple’s work with the same therapist because of potential trust issues.
