I am a provisionally licensed clinical social worker (LCSWA), and I offer mental health support services (sometimes called therapy, psychotherapy, or counseling). I work in the Gender and Sexual Diversity Initiative at Carolina Partners in Mental Healthcare, PLLC, where I can see clients with all BCBS plans, Cigna, Aetna, United Healthcare/ UBH, as well as self-pay clients. For more on this project, please go to gsdiversity.com. I can also now see clients remotely, via a HIPAA-compliant platform called Direct Care.
I can see clients who communicate in Spanish and/or English. I have clinical competence in supporting folks from LGBTQQIA+ communities, as well as people who are survivors of trauma, people who struggle with emotional regulation, and people who need support with recovery from addictive and self-destructive behaviors, among other competence areas.
My life and work experiences also make me uniquely positioned to provide culturally competent support to individuals who work in social justice and social movement spaces, as I understand first-hand many of the dynamics which are present in revolutionary and radical spaces. Further, my work is informed by an anti-racist, anti-oppression, and anti-patriarchal ethos.
If you are interested in pursuing mental health support services from me, please contact me here to schedule a free, 15 minute phone session to explore options and next steps. It may take you time to find a therapist who is a good fit for you, and even if you discover that working with me is not the right choice for you, I will strive to help connect you with the appropriate resources.
