Announcement icon Most of my clients currently are using one of the FaceTime video sessions. In person we practice Social Distancing
I am here to help you heal the distress you are feeling coming from anxiety, depression addiction, trauma, PTSD or family problems. It can be hard to connect with a therapist at first. You don't know this person and how are you going to feel trusting and secure with a stranger? Yet you are in pain and need help. It is just a first step, one that does not have to lead to commitment. You are in charge and are simply "auditioning" to see if this connection feels good and helpful.
I have over 30 years of private practice experience in West Virginia and Virginia as a counselor licensed by those states. I specialize in Trauma and family issues often when there is addiction in the family. I use supportive techniques including Guided Imagery, EMDR, and Gestalt. Once I know you, I use just the right specialties to heal you.
I invite you into a warm environment. I work with you to build trust and connectivity. I respect my clients, and I see their pain. It is real. As I get to know you I get to know that pain and what it is trying to say; what it needs. We work together to relieve the pain and open new self confidence and joy.

More about this group

Road to Peace

In this group we hear the difficulties each member is facing today. We come through sharing, listening and learning, to identify some of the hooks that keep us struggling and unable to achieve our goals. We come to see a new perspective each of us can use to grow into a balanced approach to out own and others lives. We can practice using these new views to begin to enjoy our own lives while living a new perspective with those we love and feel responsible for. Ultimately we share our joy and peace with everyone we touch.
