About

I have been a licensed therapist since 1994. You will find that I am a down-to-earth person who understands the issues that face people in the current day and age. In treatment, I am comfortable giving the feedback and direction you need to help you make the changes you want in your life. While therapy can be difficult, I believe it also can be enjoyable. To that end, I use humor, playfulness, and creativity, along with psychoeducation and traditional psychotherapy practices. You will find that I will do all I can to support guide you as you go through this process.
I specialize in treating anxiety, mood disorders, and trauma. I utilize research-driven therapy techniques and I make every effort to tailor my approach to fit each client's needs and preferences. I am trained in EMDR, Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT), and trauma-informed practices. I also incorporate mindfulness and happiness psychology practices.
I enjoy helping people understand how thoughts, feelings, and the past interfere with healthy growth and overall happiness. I offer a casual and relaxed atmosphere in which to work on growth. It is an honor for me to help people achieve their personal goals. My office is located in downtown Leesburg, VA. I am now offering telehealth sessions via iCouch.
