Devon’s therapeutic approach combines multiple empirically-supported theories including Emotionally Focused Therapy, Mindfulness, and Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy. She works to tailor each session to the needs and preferences of her clients. Her sessions cultivate a calming environment with a healthy dose of humor. Devon is trained to work with a diverse clientele with a background in chronic illness, couples sexual issues, LGBTQ, and sex therapy as well as clients with different philosophies of intimate relationships.
While Devon grew up in Southern California, her heart truly belongs in North Carolina. She appreciates southern charm, hospitality, and food and even likes the humidity! In her spare time, Devon enjoys being crafty with crochet, embroidery, and painting. Dogs and guinea pigs are her favorite animals. She and her fiancé have an extensive comic book collection and have not missed a Wednesday trip to the comic shop in over seven years!
