Closing North Carolina practice

As of 6-30-2024 Courage Counseling Services will be closing its doors in North Carolina.

It has been my privilege to work as an LPC/LCMHC in North Carolina since 2003 and in private practice as Courage Counseling Services (CCS) since 2006. CCS originated in Waxhaw, expanded to include Concord from 2013-2015, and moved to Salisbury in 2016. Since 2021 I have been working remotely from Wisconsin while maintaining my Salisbury office and my North Carolina credentials. For the last year, I have been slowly decreasing my client load as I head toward retirement.

Along the way, I have gotten to know so many amazing people—women and men, individuals, couples, and families—ranging in age from six to 96. While I met you in North Carolina, you hailed from many states, several countries, multiple ethnicities, varied professions, and walks of life.

Needless to say, I have not been bored!

I have learned so much from you all and it has been my honor to hear your stories and share in your journeys of healing and growth. I appreciate the courage it takes to start on such a journey and to stick with it over time. My prayer for each of you is that your life will flourish in the days ahead. I welcome updates from you via text, phone, or email as I come to mind.

If you find yourself in need of a therapist, a good place to start is You can enter your zip code, area of interest, or type of counseling you are looking for and it will take you to a list of local practitioners.

You can still find me on this website, which now reflects my location in Wisconsin. I will be seeing a few Wisconsin-based clients for the next year or so, but North Carolina will always be in my heart.
