About

Because no two clients are exactly the same, my treatment plans are tailored to each individual. I approach each client as I would a puzzle, where the end goal is to assemble all of the relevant pieces together for a consolidated picture. While I work with my clients to gain insight on what their past has brought to their present, I also tailor my approach by evaluating what is happening in the here and now. Having worked for the Victim Witness Program at the Commonwealth Attorney of Virginia’s office, I have experience in working with trauma/PTSD, as well as stress, family conflict, anxiety, depression, and self esteem.
My goal is to offer support and relief to a variety of individuals. My treatment approaches are tailored to the specific needs of each client. More specifically, I tend to favor a psychodynamic approach, in addition to Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT), and Motivational Interviewing.
Taking the first step in this process is oftentimes the most difficult. However, take comfort in the fact that you are not alone. When entering a new therapeutic relationship, I provide an open and accepting presence to my clients for facilitation of trust and communication.
