I specialize in working with young adults, adolescents, and their families in individual, couple, and family therapy. Sometimes we worry that coming to therapy means something is wrong. I believe it means something is right. Often, my clients find themselves facing more decisions and questions about who they are and what they want out of their lives and relationships than ever before. This is an important time in life when many people ask themselves: How can I feel like what I do matters?

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.

MY PRACTICE IS FULL AT THE MOMENT - NOT ACCEPTING NEW CLIENTS. I believe that in order to make changes in our lives we need to start by looking at our relationship to ourselves, to the world and to people in it. Some of our patterns of relating were set in motion long before we had any awareness of or language for our emotions. In my practice I have found that a compassionate, respectful and mutually trusting approach can lead to meaningful change and ultimately a more authentic and fulfilling life.

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.

Chances are your work-life balance isn't at all balanced. Maybe you are a perfectionist always trying to do more. Maybe you are a people pleaser who struggles to say "No". Meaningful pursuits such as fulfilling relationships, personal interests and staying healthy are harder to navigate because now you have to stay home.
