In a maze it’s “Which way do I go?” You want to get lost. But with a labyrinth, there’s a pattern. You think you’re constantly getting close, then going farther away. But you know you’re going to get there in the end. – Jeff Bridges At one time or another, we all doubt that we will “get there in the end.” We doubt that we or our children will overcome the challenges in our lives, have fulfilling relationships or careers, find the parts of ourselves that have gone missing, or see our dreams realized. On a basic level, therapy is about finding or rediscovering your path, restoring faith in your abilities, and developing new skills to make your journey a successful one.

As a psychologist with extensive clinical training in research-supported therapy and assessment for clients of all ages, I can help you or your loved ones navigate a wide range of difficulties. My services include the following:

  • Individual therapy for children, teenagers, and adults
  • Evaluations to assess for autism, ADHD, learning differences, and other diagnoses across the lifespan
  • Behavior management and parent consultation for kids of all ages
  • Cognitive-behavioral coaching for teens and adults with ADHD
  • Career assessment and counseling for teenagers and adults
  • Parent-focused treatment for childhood anxiety (SPACE)

I approach my work with warmth, humor, empathy, and creativity, and I will collaborate with you to tailor treatment to your needs. Conveniently located in Durham near Duke’s east campus, I serve individuals and families throughout the state of North Carolina. I offer both in-person appointments and telehealth services.

I was born in central Kentucky, grew up in northern Alabama, and earned my undergraduate degree in psychology from Mississippi State University. I earned my Ph.D. in counseling psychology from Colorado State University in 2013, after completing an APA-accredited doctoral internship at Duke University Counseling and Psychological Services.

I provide care to kids and adults with a wide range of issues, but I especially enjoy working with people with anxiety problems, autism, and ADHD. I have specialized training in cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT), acceptance and commitment therapy (ACT), comprehensive psychological assessment, and career assessment and counseling. I am also trained in SPACE (Supportive Parenting for Anxious Childhood Emotions), a parent-focused treatment for anxiety and OCD in children and teenagers. I have provided therapy, consultation, and assessment to children, adults, and families in many different settings, including university counseling centers, a university career center, community colleges, a community mental health clinic, a public school district, and independent schools. I am an LGBTQ-affirming therapist and often work with clients who identify as part of the LGBTQIA+ community.

I am licensed in the state of North Carolina (NC license #4772) and am a member of the American Psychological Association. I am also a member of the North Carolina Psychological Association and serve on the NCPA Continuing Education Committee.

I live in Raleigh with my family, a big cheerful dog, two ridiculous cats, and a Japanese fire-bellied newt. I love reading, baking, craft projects, doodling on everything, and spending the afternoon in my favorite hidden-gem park.

Fees & Insurance

As of September 1, 2023, my fees are as follows:

Individual therapy (adult, teen, or child) or parent consultation:

  • Initial intake session (50-60 minutes): $250
  • Subsequent therapy sessions (45-50 min.): $165
  • Subsequent therapy sessions (55-60 min.): $185

Evaluations (for ADHD, learning disorders, autism, etc.):

The fee for an evaluation is $250 per hour. This includes the initial intake session, clinical interview time, testing, scoring, communication with collateral contacts, record review, any observation sessions, writing, feedback session, and report.

Most evaluations require between 8 and 16 hours total, depending on the complexity of the referral question and the age of the client. I will be able to provide you with an estimate at our initial meeting. I charge as I go for evaluations, meaning that a portion of the fee will be due at each point of contact (the intake session, the testing session, and the feedback session).

Sometimes an evaluation with a child may require a school observation. Travel time for school observations is not included in the overall evaluation estimate. Travel times are one-way trips, estimated through Google Maps. Travel time of less than 15 minutes carries a $50 charge. 16-30 minutes carries a $100 charge. 31-60 minutes carries a $200 charge.

Other Fees:

Clients can access information about other fees (e.g., legal fees, document fees) in the policies form shared in my client portal.


My services are covered by Duke Student Health Insurance (Student Blue). While my services are considered out-of-network for all other insurance companies, many PPOs include out-of-network reimbursement benefits. Because submitting for reimbursement can be a time-consuming process, my office will handle out-of-network reimbursement paperwork as a courtesy for clients. If you provide your insurance information, we will submit claims on your behalf so that you may be reimbursed directly according to your out-of-network benefits.

While we will do our best to communicate with your insurance company in order to facilitate reimbursement, please be aware that your policy determines the amount of reimbursement and the speed at which you are reimbursed.

Clients with out-of-network benefits typically receive reimbursement from their insurance companies within 6-8 weeks of the time of service. If you have a deductible, your reimbursement may be applied toward your deductible. If you do not have a deductible or your deductible has been met, your insurance company is likely to mail you a check.

To determine how much you can expect to be reimbursed by your insurance company, you can call the number on the back of your insurance card and ask about reimbursement rates for an initial assessment and therapy with an out-of-network psychologist. If you are asked for CPT codes, the CPT code for an initial assessment is 90791, and the CPT code for a standard therapy session is 90834. My NPI, which may also be requested by your insurance agent, is 1164855011.

Please note that career assessments, career counseling, and certain educational evaluations are generally not covered by insurance policies.
