I primarily incorporate cognitive-behavioral, person-centered, and family systems techniques in therapy.
I specialize in counseling children, adolescents, and young adults struggling with a range of issues--from managing the stress of everyday life to more serious difficulties, such as mood disorders, trauma, and anger management. I believe that developing a collaborative, yet change-oriented, relationship with my clients is key to promoting growth. As such, I am solution-focused and strive to help my clients learn new methods of solving their problems and managing emotions. I believe in practicing therapy that is translatable to the real world, as small changes can greatly improve a young person's experience and trajectory of life.

I blend a variety of approaches to meet each client’s needs but I frequently draw from a client-centered approach, a family systems approach and engage in emotion-focused processing and cognitive or cognitive-behavioral techniques.
It has been shown time and again the relationship between client and counselor is the most important part of a therapy experience. It is always on my mind to ensure that our relationship remains entirely focused on you, but as a part of the collaborative duo that will become client and therapist I’m happy to share a bit about myself. Relationally, I have been described as down-to-earth, authentic and sincere and I enjoy a bit of humorous banter in the therapy space as the situation calls for it. With humility and curiosity I am eager to hear about your life experiences. Licensed in TN (license 3396) & Virginia (license 0701010748)

It's hard for anyone to talk about personal issues. Anyone brave enough to do this launches themselves into a life giving process that increases the possibilities of their lives forever. It brings about unbelievable changes opening possibilities never thought of. It's hard work. It's scary. But it teaches one to live effectively with what life has brought and create changes that enhance the life that is. It's a journey into the good and the bad that takes a person to new heights. It's an exploration that creates love and light in a life.

You may have learned to withdraw/numb feelings, deny or feel shame about them, or that your emotions are “too much”.

Family Systems Therapists
Family Systems therapists in Charlottesville view problems within the family as the result not of particular members' behaviors, but of the family's group dynamic. The family is seen as a complex system having its own language, roles, rules, beliefs, needs and patterns. The therapist helps each individual member understand how their childhood family operated, their role in that system, and how that experience has shaped their role in the current family. Therapists with the MFT credential are usually trained in Family Systems therapy.
