My approach is strengths-based and collaborative, and I pull from a variety of therapy models including CBT, DBT, attachment-based, family systems, and narrative therapy.
I believe that everyone deserves a space to feel heard as they navigate in a new direction, away from feeling disconnected, stuck, and isolated. I will collaborate with you by helping you identify and shift negative or limiting perceptions, in order to create room instead for empowering perspectives that can better serve you going forward. I provide a safe, supportive, and warm environment as you begin to face whatever obstacles that initially brought you to therapy, and help you manage the conflicting feelings that often accompany this process.

My work includes the belief that everything we do, think, and feel makes sense in context - our relationships. Relationships are where we learn what is ‘acceptable’ and ‘loveable’ about us, how to trust, manage emotions, ask for what we need, and where our boundaries lie. For many, this context may not have offered clear maps for self-worth, healthy relationships, or emotion regulation. When we experience anxiety, depression, or distress we are often responding to unresolved pain, faulty beliefs about our worth, or relationship patterns that no longer serve. I help individuals create a new narrative and authentic sense of self.

Curiosity in therapy will acquaint you with your narrative that forms your relationship to your mind, body, and soul.
Living through a pandemic redefines normal. The last 13 months of job changes, losses of family time, or perhaps the death of a loved one due to COVID, or illnesses related have increased anxiety and depression to 1 out of 3 people suffering from these changes in reality. The cracks in society due to racial and social inequities have heightened the awareness of everyone in the world. This is also an opportunity to redefine goals in the 8 areas of your life, Physical, Vocational, Spiritual, Creative, Rejuvenation, Financial, Mentally, Relational. Clarifying purpose in each of these areas supports a new vision in this new world.

Together, we will rewrite the narrative.
Anxiety spins in your mind. It’s like a car on a racetrack of thoughts where the only way off seems to be a brief pit stop during the few high points of your day. Your mind turns to familiar scenarios, images, and disasters over and over again. It’s not just stress from work or the responsibility of parenting. The worry and fear get so bad sometimes that they might boil over into panic. Then the same circular pattern starts all over again. Maybe you have become avoidant of the people or places that trigger these feelings but in the back of your mind you know they are still there. You know deep down that you can't go on like this.

I am a Licensed Professional Counselor (LPC) with experience working with clients in their early 20s to late 50s. Clients often come to our first session feeling stuck and uncertain about how to attain the life they want to live. Relationships and career stressors contribute to self-doubt and anxiety, leaving them confused about how to move forward. In therapy, I work with clients to begin valuing themselves, tuning into their desires and dreams, and moving in that direction. The first step toward change is often learning to treat ourselves with the same love and care we would show to a valued friend.

Narrative Therapists
Narrative Therapy uses the client's storytelling to indicate the way they construct meaning in their lives, rather than focusing on how they communicate their problem behaviors. Fairfax Narrative Therapy embraces the idea that stories actually shape our behaviors and our lives and that we become the stories we tell about ourselves. There are helpful narratives we can choose to embrace as well as unhelpful ones. Although it may sound obvious, the power of storytelling is to elevate the client--who is the authority of their narrative--rather than the therapist, as expert. Check these therapists for find Narrative Therapy in Fairfax.
