This is a scary time, but I am here for you.  Please give me a call.

 I know that these may be scary times for you and your loved ones with new reports about health risks surfacing daily. During these extraordinary times, we are all facing unprecedented circumstances surrounding the COVID-19 pandemi,c.  You may be experiencing fear, anxiety and even grief as plans are canceled and daily routines are completely shifted. 

Behavioral Healthcare professionals have been advised to follow social/physical distancing recommendations, limiting our contact with others as much as possible, in order to limit our risk of spreading the virus. A lot of therapists are not seeing clients in the office.  You still have the option to get the help that you need to reduce your stress, anxiety, and fear via online or telephone counseling.

I recognize that most people's lives have changed dramatically over the past several months. Some are balancing childcare or care of loved ones with the demands of working from home. Some of you may not be working and are struggling financially.  With social distancing or "physical distancing" in place, you may share a home with people who are adding to your stress or anxiety  Boy do I feel you!!!. 

If your place of employment or source of income has been affected and you will struggle to pay my full fee, please do not hesitate to talk with me about your financial situation and we will negotiate a reduced rate if needed. Most major insurance companies that would otherwise not allow teletherapy or telephonic counseling, have agreed to cover online therapy and phone therapy, so that's one less thing that you have to worry about.

I want to be as flexible as possible as I know this is a crucial time for all of us to maintain some sense of normalcy, to get support when we are isolated, and to continue to enhance our strengths that impact our resiliency. 

Please try to reduce your time watching or listening to all the news on COVID-19.  I would suggest getting your updates from the CDC or your state government website.  You can easily access the CDC's website by clicking on this link

If you are seeking therapy services and have limited funds to pay for it, there is a solution.  Go to for more information.

If you are Anxious or Depressed.  I'm the therapist for you.

I specialize in the treatment of Depression, Bipolar Disorder, and other Mood Disorders.  I also treat all Anxiety Disorders to include Panic Disorder, Social Anxiety, Generalized Anxiety Disorder, and other Anxiety issues. 

If you feel like you are in a constant state of stress, panic,or worry and consumed with sadness or despair then therapy can help you to identify underlying patterns that keep ​you stuck and give you the tools that you need to fight back-now and forever.  

I offer 100% Online Therapy services.

Contact me at (336) 443-5535 or securely e-mail me at [email protected] to schedule an appointment

Why do I only offer Online Therapy?


You can engage in services from a private location of your choosing (home, work, etc.). You also don’t have to worry about getting dressed and driving across town for an appointment. No more spending time in a waiting room when you can be done in an hour and back to your life. You don't have to find a babysitter, just put the kids to bed and take care of your needs.


Online psychotherapy is just as effective as meeting with a therapist in an office. It is not a substitute for face-to-face therapy.


You are not restricted to having to meet during traditional office hours (i.e. 8-5) or Monday through Friday only. I have evening and weekend hours available for sessions which will make it more convenient for you and your family.

Accessible To All

Those of you who may have physical limitations and are home-bound can now engage in therapy services. Therapy services can also be provided to persons living in other countries. All you need is reliable internet connection and a computer, laptop, or tablet!

How Does It Work?

After your appointment is scheduled with me, I'll e-mail you a link to set up your client portal. You will be able to complete the intake paperwork prior to your first session, make payments, schedule and cancel your appointments. You can also send me secure messages. Your client portal can be accessed from any device at anytime you choose. A few minutes before your session, you'll simply click on a link to begin the session. We will have our therapy sessions on a secure connection to ensure your privacy.

I  provide Emotional Support Animal Evaluations & Letters

Important Information

The primary pur​pose of an Emotional Support Animal (ESA)  is to help his/her owner by decreasing symptoms associated with a mental/emotional disability and aid in coping, thereby improving overall functioning and well being. The animal is not required to undergo any special training or be certified in any way. An Emotional Support Animal is different from a therapy or service animal as federal law only applies when it concerns housing restrictions and/or airline travel. The Emotional Support Animal may not be brought into public places (with the exception of an airport). Should the animal in question be in poor health, not current on its vaccinations, a nuisance to others, or aggressive in any way, federal law does not apply. 

Please note that I will not provide Emotional Support Animal Letters of Prescription for just anyone who requests one simply because he/she want to keep a pet in what would otherwise be animal-restricted housing or wishes to travel with their pet only for convenience purposes. This issue is taken very seriously, as many people try to take advantage of labeling their pet as an Emotional Support Animal to get around certain restrictions and laws. I conduct a comprehensive biological-psychological-social evaluation.  There has to be a legitimate medical and/or mental/emotional reason (disability) why an individual is in true need of an Emotional Support Animal.  This need must be a documented psychological disorder (e.g., panic attacks, depression, PTSD, etc.) and/or physical disorder (this needs to be verified by a medical professional). The individual must have a functional impairment in one or more of the following major life activities: walking, concentrating, hearing, self-care, performing manual tasks, social interaction, sleeping, seeing, hearing, speaking, breathing, learning, working, etc.
