Something has changed and you feel ready to face what is holding you back. You are done living a life to make others happy. You are constantly on edge & irritable. You feel trapped in old habits & narratives. You've said: "Enough. I'm ready to face my pain and trauma". If you relate, I can help. As a trauma therapist who specializes in EMDR and Brainspotting, I offer you a safe space to heal. Imagine a future where you make choices that are aligned with your true self. Imagine it's possible that you are thriving instead of surviving. Send me a message if you live in Virginia or Washington DC and let's begin your journey today!
I ask you to bring your whole self to therapy, and I do the same. As a lesbian, divorced, ex-christian therapist, I understand the struggles and triumphs of embracing your authentic self in the face of societal expectations. Together, we can face your fears and find the life path that is right for you. Want to learn more? Visit my website: therapyhelps.org
Clients describe me as warm and safe. They are often surprised by their tears in session and describe feeling lighter and noticing different thought patterns after therapy. I trust you as the expert of yourself and see my role as a curious and compassionate facilitator. Are you ready to work together? Schedule your free 15 minute consultation with me today!

Your treatment plan is a collaboration. One size does not fit all! We start by setting small and achievable goals while simultaneously working on building your coping skills and confidence to tackle the bigger goals. You can expect from me: trauma informed treatment, an open dialogue about what is working (and not working!), & teaching you the skills that will help you thrive, not just survive.
