Matthews Therapist Helping You
with Depression and Anxiety, Trauma and Abuse,

Gay and Lesbian Issues, Chronic Pain, Illness
and much more....

I am an individual therapist in Matthews, NC, seasoned in working with adults. My approach to therapy is simple – I treat people the way I want to be treated – with respect, honesty, and warmth. I bring to each session my maturity, advanced skills, compassion and a sense of humor.

I am especially enthusiastic about using EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization Reprocessing). This is a psychotherapeutic approach which is helpful for trauma, chronic pain, anxiety, grief, stress, abuse, etc. I use this approach for people who request it and for whom it is clinically appropriate.

The thought manifests as
the word

The word
manifests as
the deed

The deed develops into habit

And the habit
hardens into character.

So watch the
thought and its
ways with care.

And let it spring
from love

For each of us, life is about learning to know ourselves and what will make us feel successful and happy. Emerson articulates thoughts about success beautifully:



To laugh often and much;
to win the respect of intelligent people
and affection of children; to earn the
appreciation of honest critics and
endure the betrayal of false friends;
to appreciate beauty, to find the best
in others; to leave the world a bit
better, whether by a healthy child, a
garden patch or a redeemed social
condition; to know even one life has
breathed easier because you have
lived. This is to have succeeded.
Ralph Waldo Emerson



Conquer anger
by love.
Conquer evil
by good.
Conquer the stingy
by giving.
Conquer the liar
by truth.
– From the
”Dhammapada “
of Buddhism
