Given my work schedule, it is often easiest to reach me via email. If you call and leave a voicemail, please indicate some days and times I might be able to reach you back. Unless I am out of town or otherwise unavailable, I will reply to your message in 2 business days. If this is an emergency, call mobile crisis (1-800-510-9132) or 911 if you feel safe doing so, or go to your local emergency room (UNC CH recommended for psychiatric emergencies).
Your first appointment
In order to schedule your first therapy appointment, please reach out to me via the email address or phone number provided above. I will likely request we have a brief phone consultation to learn more about what you are looking for. If it seems like we’re a good fit, we will schedule an appointment at that time. In the event that another practitioner may best be able to help you, I will provide you with referrals. Once we schedule an appointment, I will send you electronic intake paperwork for you to complete before we meet. For information on the cost of therapy, please see the “Fees” section under the “Therapy” tab.
My main office is located directly across from Duke’s East Campus. There is ample parking in the back, and both street parking and the ADF lot can be used for overflow if needed. You can also get to the office using the Bull City Connector, as well as the 1A/1B and 11 GoDurham bus lines.
Our offices are in the lower floor of Method. Once you arrive, there are two different ways to access the building. You may enter the back door from the parking lot stairs and then walk down the hallway to the waiting room. You may also enter through the front door and go down the stairs immediately to your left, where you will find our waiting room.
There are several accessibility considerations for our building. Please note that the ground level floor of our building is a personal training gym. For people for whom seeing this facility may be upsetting or triggering, you may come in through the door directly adjacent to the parking lot. Additionally, I am in the bottom floor of an older building, and the space is regrettably not wheelchair accessible. I am working to address this in the longer term. If, in the interim, you need a space you can access without using stairs, please let me know and I will arrange to see you at an alternate location. Depending on the way you enter the building, there are between 11 and 14 steps to access our space. In the waiting room, there are 4 sturdy, cushioned chairs, 3 of which have arms and 1 of which does not. Finally, there are two single stall gender-neutral restrooms located en suite.
If there is anything else I can do to make the space more accessible for you, please let me know in advance of your visit.
My office occupies unceded land of the Occaneechi Band of the Saponi Nation, as well as land of other people whose names we may never know. I acknowledge their community, elders past and present, and future generations. I distribute a portion of my income generated on this land each month back to the people of the Saponi Nation, in keeping with my commitment to address the legacies of settler colonialism and its erasure of native people.
