Don't let your struggle become your identity. I can help you find quality of life and feel better about yourself by working together on mental health concerns such as anxiety, depression, substance use, anger management, healthy relationships, and more.

AREAS OF EXPTERTISE: counseling for individuals and couples, anger management, domestic violence, substance use. Available services include consultation, clinical supervision, psychoeducation/training, selected types of evaluations and supervised visitation. My approach emphasizes healthy relationships--within ourselves, and with others.

Since 2015, I have assisted clients with improving their quality of life through my counseling and mental health services. I work with individuals ages 13 and up, and offer services in person in my office in downtown Spartanburg or via telehealth. I am credentialed and paneled with several different insurances. 

I am a Certified Group Psychotherapist, which is an international certification. I am a Diplomate of the National Anger Management Association and certified in Anger Management. I work in conjunction with the 7th Judicial Circuit Solicitor's Office as an approved provider for domestic violence, anger management, and alcohol substance use group services. I am the sole clinician on the 7th Judicial Circuit Solicitor's Drug Court team, and I hold certifications for working with child and adolescent anxiety, autism, ADHD, and personality disorders. 

I am a Diplomate of the American Board of Sexology and a Board Certified Sexologist. I am a professional member of the American Association of Sexuality Educators, Counselors and Therapists.

Good Faith Estimate

If you do not have insurance, or do not wish to pay for services without accessing insurance coverage, Section 2799B-6 of the Public Health Service Act requires me to inform you verbally and in writing  to provide you with a “Good Faith Estimate” of expected charges.

Under the law, health care providers need to give patients who don’t have insurance or who are not using insurance an estimate of the bill for medical items and services.

You have the right to receive a Good Faith Estimate for the total expected cost of any non-emergency items or services. 

Make sure your health care provider gives you a Good Faith Estimate in writing at least 1 business day before your medical service or item. You can also ask your health care provider, and any other provider you choose, for a Good Faith Estimate before you schedule an item or service.

The good faith estimate shows the list of expected charges for items or services from your provider. Because the good faith estimate is based on information known at the time your provider the estimate is created, it won’t include any unknown or unexpected costs that may be added during your treatment.

Your provider must give you the good faith estimate:

  • After you schedule a health care item or service. If you schedule an item or service at least 3 business days before the date you’ll get the item or service, the provider must give you a good faith estimate no later than 1 business day after scheduling. If you schedule the item or service OR ask for cost information about it at least 10 business days before the date you get the item or service, the provider or facility must give you a good faith estimate no later than 3 business days after you schedule or ask for the estimate.

  • That includes a list of each item or service (with the provider), and specific details, like the health care service code.

  • In a way that’s accessible to you, like in large print, Braille, audio files, or other forms of communication.

I will explain the good faith estimate to you over the phone or in person if you ask, then follow up with a written (paper or electronic) estimate, per your preferred form of communication. Keep the estimate in a safe place so you can compare it to any bills you get later. After you get a bill for the items or services, if the billed amount is $400 or more above the good faith estimate, you may be eligible to dispute the bill.
