  • "Your healing journey begins with finding the midwife of your soul"

    Welcome to The HSP Psychotherapist for unique, customized therapy with the Highly Sensitive Person in mind.

    I have been an HSP my entire life.  It hasn’t been easy but I have learned how to emotionally regulate my hypersensitivity and navigate some fairly rough terrain as a wife and mother of seven children (now grown).  My sole mission as a clinical therapist is to serve my clients as a “midwife of the soul”.  By being present with each of my clients, helping them to develop insight, alchemize their suffering, transmute their trauma into triumph, heal unhealthy relationship patterns, connect to their Higher Self, highlight their inner strengths, and engage in positive behaviors such as unconditional self love and self-compassion, I have seen my clients transform their lives as they participate in the joyful process of birthing the very best of their own soul.

    “You either walk inside your story and own it or you stand outside your story and hustle for your worthiness.”

    My specialties include helping ALL clients to access the Divine Light within and supporting HSPs and other neruo-atypical clients to lead successful, self-actualized lives.

    My holistic clinical approach is evidenced-based.  I implement  trauma care by utilizing EMDR, expressive arts therapy. and many holistic integrative modalities, such as spiritual psychotherapy, mindfulness meditation, selected breathing practices, barefoot grounding exercises and eco-therapy for stress reduction.

    If you’re interested in becoming a better, happier, more fulfilled you,

    Let's work together

    Thank you for considering starting therapy with me in my private practice, Taproot Integrative Counseling, PLLC.

    I understand that good therapy is also a financial investment.  Many people who need it are not able to afford private practice fees, sliding scale fees, or have insurance with a provider that I am not credentialed to accept.   

    In an effort to reach a wider population, I hold professional clinical licenses in both North Carolina and South Carolina.  I am also available on the following Telehealth platforms:

    If you do not have insurance and are in urgent need of talk therapy, please find me on Better Help:

    If you have health insurance with Cigna, Optum, or Aetna, please find me on Talkspace:

    If you are interested in having me contact you for a free 15-minute phone consultation, please contact Alma, a therapy referral service that accepts almost every health insurance provider in the United States (and maybe even on the planet), please go here:
