My first job out of grad school was working in community mental health, where I remained from 2001 to 2017. Working in North Carolina's odd, hybrid-public/private non-profit mental health sector with some incredible mentors shaped me into a passionate advocate for people struggling with mental health and substance use issues, and has allowed me the opportunity to hone my craft as a teacher and trainer, as well. Through all of that, however, I struggled to find voice for my faith, and I longed for a venue where I could incorporate that faith into my practice. So, in March of 2014, InSight Counseling & Consultation Services was born as a part-time venture in the back of a small, rural primary care office. In April 0f 2017, that part-time endeavor became my full-time passion. I am blessed to work down the hall from several gifted healers who share my belief that each of us is a whole person—body, mind and spirit—and recognize the value of truly integrated care.
