Grief is a natural response to a bereavement or a loss of any kind, but the distress you understandably feel today need not be incapacitating or unnecessarily prolonged. My approach will help you come to terms with your new reality, while retaining a healthy and positive psychological relationship with the loved ones you have cherished, but who are now no longer physically present. We will work together to establish new strategies for living a fulfilling and joyful life - a life that can be continually enriched by the happy memories of times gone by. A life of gratitude, rather than regret.

Navigating transition or change can be HARD; I partner with you to help make it easier. Together we will uncover and explore patterns of thinking, feeling, and acting to help you feel better and live the life you want for yourself. In my office, I hope you feel heard, understood, and cared for. I acknowledge societal inequities in our work together, such as racism, sexism, and ageism. I hope to do all this while maintaining a sense of humor and not taking myself too seriously.

One of the keys to successfully managing stress is to participate in a stress-management group. This can be a powerful modality in the process of addressing issues that trigger stress. Group members will participate in an intimate group format that is ongoing and topic-driven. This design facilitates education, open discussion and connection with others. This is a great group for people who are interested in managing stress from a Bio-psychosocial spiritual perspective.******* I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker and a Certified Substance Abuse Counselor in the state of Virginia. My clinical population includes both adults and adolescents. I specialize in the following clinical areas: addictive disorders, co-dependency, depression, anxiety, stress management, grief issues, gay and lesbian issues, relationship conflicts, and overall wellness. I have over 25 years of experience as a therapist and have utilized my clinical expertise in outpatient, inpatient, detoxification, EAP, and Emergency Services settings. Feel free to contact me for Substance Abuse Evaluations, DOT/SAP Evaluations, individual and group needs.

When I see a new patient for the first time, I try to assess what he or she wants from life or from what each person is struggling. I do this with individuals or parents so together so we can determine what is best for him or her or their child at the current time. Sometimes people want to work on one problem and then develop a curiosity about how their minds work. Often in those situations, I work more intensely and more frequency to search for what is meaning to people and how they wants to navigate in the world in a freer way.

*****Very limited availability for new clients; wait list spots available***** I aim to cultivate an atmosphere in therapy that is real and honest - where my clients feel the freedom to cut the crap, not worry about saying the "right" thing, and speak candidly about their thoughts, feelings, and experiences, without fear of judgment. The things that we hash through in counseling can be messy, and I deeply appreciate the vulnerability this process requires. I find that a therapeutic relationship like this - one that's safe, comfortable, authentic, and honest - is where so much growth happens.

I work with clients who are distressed or confused by why they engage in the behaviors they do, whether it's addiction, anger, illegal or anti-social behavior, or relationship difficulties and challenges. I believe this is because my stance is non-judgmental and I genuinely believe that all behavior is rational given past experience, even if it is not helpful or healthy in the present. I work to help clients navigate how these behaviors may have arisen, to develop self-compassion, and then to provide support and strategies to do the hard work of adopting new, more helpful behaviors.

Dual Diagnosis Therapists
Dual diagnosis (also called co-occurring disorders, COD) occurs when clients suffer from a mental illness while also experiencing a substance abuse problem. Diagnosing a psychiatric disorder in someone with a substance abuse issue is challenging as the drug abuse itself can often produce psychiatric symptoms. These dual diagnosis therapists in Washington may provide dual diagnosis programs, dual diagnosis facilities or Washington dual diagnosis treatment - dual diagnosis rehab may be relevant. A therapist can help provide support or connect you to a Washington COD network or support group.
