Are you struggling in your relationship, separation, divorce, or with a co-parent? Has the forced proximity from COVID-19 or some other major life event negatively impacted your relationships? Are you concerned about how the strain involved might be affecting your children? Such concerns are all too common in these situations, and many otherwise effective and more-than-competent people are left wondering if they're doing everything possible, or even just enough, to meet the needs of everyone in their family. Being a parent is difficult for everyone, and problems in relationships between parents and loved ones make it even harder.

It is my pleasure to be able to offer phone or video counseling for convenience and access to Christian Counseling. I am interested in working with those who have broken hearts, anyone affected by divorce, infidelity, boundary issues, overwhelm, stress, narcissist victim, anxiety, OCD, perfectionism, codependency, childhood abuse, mother/father wounding, family dysfunction and those seeking spiritual growth. I enjoy identifying underlying causes of what keeps us stuck. Uncovering why we do the things we do can help assist in the goal of freedom. It is my personal view that we look at the roots, not the symptoms to make a difference.

I work with children age 2-adolescent, parents, and adults, and have served a large population, including adoptive and foster families, children with behavioral and emotional challenges, families managing issues of trauma, emotional disregulation, attachment, grief and loss, divorce, and life transitions.
I believe that children have the natural ability to heal. Through expressive therapy I find that children are given a voice to express what they often times cannot through words. I am a Virginia State Licensed Clinical Social Worker with over 10 years of experience working in the field, and have specialized training in working with children and their families, play therapy, and the expressive therapies. My areas of expertise include working with parents of challenging children, trauma, sexual/physical/emotional abuse, mood, anxiety, emotional difficulties, behavioral problems, grief and loss, and children of divorced parents.

After any stressful or distressing event such as being diagnosed with a chronic illness, losing a loved one, or going through a divorce, life as we know it changes instantly. The life we once knew, or dreamed about, is suddenly shattered, which can leave us feeling anxious, depressed, angry, or downright hopeless. Although we may find ourselves on a new life journey, one we didn’t ask for by the way, who says this new path can’t be a path worth walking down? If we can accept this possibility then we open the door for hope and a new reality that can hold space for both pain and happiness, sorrow and joy, anxiety and peace.

Problems causing pain in the present are addressed as well as developing an understanding of each person's history in a way that allows the person to keep the positives but "unlearn" the lessons that interfere with current life satisfaction.Being understood and understanding oneself can bring comfort.
