I began Padma Counseling and Consciousness out of my passion for treating people with a history of trauma. “Padma” is the Sanskrit word for “lotus flower.” In Buddhist parables, the lotus flower blooms out of the mire and mud, and represents rebirth and enlightenment out of the suffering in life.
I believe that every person, regardless of life circumstances, has the potential to grow and bloom from within to become a content, renewed individual.
Therapy should be easy to navigate, and convenient. We offer both in person and telehealth services to fit your needs and lifestyle, making it easy to schedule sessions, check balances, and contact me.
Warm & Inviting
Coming to therapy can seem intimidating at first. I am here to guide you through this process in a space of safety and comfort. I offer a free 15-minute phone consultation with any questions or concerns that you might have.
Therapy is a collaborative process, where YOU make the decisions about your care. We look at the person as a whole, beyond just a diagnosis.
I provide online and in person mental health and substance use services to adults in the state of North Carolina.
Have you experienced a traumatic event in your life? Does stress disrupt your daily activities? Do you have a hard time with body image? We offer therapy services for a variety of issues.
I charge $165 per session and typically last about 50-60 minutes. Sliding fee scales can be discussed upon request.
