I provide individual, group, and family therapy to children, adolescents, and adults. I have gained experience in private practices, school systems, DC pretrial services, and an adolescent residential program. I have experience with treating depression, anxiety, ADHD, autism, oppositionality, social skills deficits, anger control issues, self harming concerns, suicidality, adjustment disorders, trauma, and family discord. I predominantly utilize a CBT approach, I integrate other techniques such as play therapy, person-centered techniques, self-esteem building, mindfulness, DBT concepts, EMDR, and expressive therapies.

I also conduct psychological evaluations aimed at assessing learning problems, attention deficits, mood disorders, personality functioning, and emotional dysregulation. I take a special interest in children, adolescent, young adult, and family issues. I have been formally trained in EMDR and Exposure with Response Prevention (ERP) for OCD.

I obtained my Bachelors of Science in Psychology at Virginia Tech. I went on to complete my Masters and Doctorate in Clinical Psychology at the American School of Professional Psychology at Argosy University in Washington DC. I'm licensed in the Commonwealth of Virginia as a Clinical Psychologist.
