My work with abused and at-risk youth in residential and community programs has informed my healing since 1990. My medical degree is from Wake Forest University, and my child and adolescent fellowship is from the Medical College of Virginia. I studied psychology and music at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. I am a Diplomate of the American Board of Psychiatry and Neurology, and an active member of the Academy of Child and Adolescent Psychiatry.
Wrestling with God for many years over the stories my pediatric patients were telling, I began to create poems, songs, and paintings. Art led me on a new path for healing. God is never happier than when we are creating.
Since surviving a rare and aggressive cancer, I have become impassioned about healing prayer. Psychotherapy, medication management, as well as, somatic energy techniques continue to be tools in my practice. Now, I have added prayer and healing prayer. Join me on your journey to wholeness.
