Iris is a licensed clinical mental health therapist who has experience with individual and group counseling since 2022 through her graduate program at UNC Charlotte. Iris has training in comprehensive dialectical behavior therapy (DBT)and she is also a member of Counselors for Social Justice, the National Board for Certified Counselors, and the American Counseling Association. Iris chose Ellie – Charlotte because of Ellie’s emphasis on showing up as one’s authentic self, and having acceptance for ourselves, others, and life’s challenges. Iris also really appreciates our mission of creating more accessibility to wellness and mental health care. While there are so many ways to take care of one’s mental health and well-being, Iris’s favorites are making crafts, spending time with people who fill her cup, traveling to new places, and giving her mind, body, and soul permission to rest!
