Hi, I'm Kayce. Nice to meet you.
I have always been a patient and interested listener. Often criticized as a child for being "too quiet," instructed to "smile more," and asked, "why the worried look?," I kept my chin up, trying very hard to stay determined in my hope that these personality traits might actually be useful. Turns out, being comfortable with silence, thinking carefully before speaking, listening closely, and being empathic all come in pretty handy in the helping profession.
I am a Licensed Professional Counselor and National Certified Counselor with a Master of Education in Counseling from Winthrop University in Rock Hill, South Carolina. I grew up not far from there in Chester, SC, and moved around quite a bit, from the Washington, DC, area to New York City to Richmond, VA, before settling down in beautiful Wake Forest, NC, where I now live with my husband, son, and puppy dog.
In my spare time, you will find me traveling, hiking with my family, reading, enjoying one of the Triangle's many wonderful restaurants, or simply enjoying a fine cup of coffee on my screened in porch, one of my absolute favorite places in the world to relax.
