About Me


I am a native of Western North Carolina so I have a unique perspective of our beautiful part of the county. I am also welcoming to those who have transplanted and chosen to make this your home this typically means you love it as much as I do.


I am an adjunct instructor at Mars Hill University for the Social Work Department & I teach yoga in my psychotherapy practice. I love introducing busy minds to Meditation which helps quite the anxious mind and boost the depressed mind.  


I have deep professional roots in the community around human and animal welfare. I have dogs who are true family members. I can talk about them for hours but promise not too. Pictured here with me are Claire, under my arm & Steve standing front and center. Jack (not pictured)
