Being able to be your true self is one of the strongest components of good mental health. “We have overstretched our personal boundaries and forgotten that true happiness comes from living an authentic life fueled with a sense of purpose and balance.”-Dr. K. Hall I recognize that feeling ambivalent or unsure about making changes is a natural part of the process of therapy. I utilize multiple approaches that are customized to your individual needs. There is not one path for everyone. Flexibility and choice are the cornerstones of my therapeutic approach. Using a combination of different strategies often yields the best results.

I see adults who are suffering from depression and/or anxiety. I assist them in making better life choices to overcome the depression and anxiety. I also work with women who are escaping an abusive relationship and assist them in relearning who they are as an individual, not just an abused spouse. These women typically have self-esteem issues and it can be difficult to believe that they can survive on their own. Helping them through this struggle is difficult, but rewarding.

*ONLINE COUNSELING ANYWHERE IN VIRGINIA* Do you feel unsettled or that you're not where you want to be in life? Maybe you’re wondering if you’ll ever be a “good enough” partner, wife, mother, friend, or just good enough, in general. Or you’re faced with an important life decision like marriage, a new job, or whether or not to have a baby. You can’t really put your finger on why these decisions are so hard for you and that keeps you stuck and feeling anxious all the time. You have a hard time trusting your gut or listening to that quiet voice inside you that’s telling you something’s not right.

You've probably already tried to figure out how to feel better. Sick of being told that you're "too sensitive" or "overreacting," you're exhausted by how emotions and memories reach out and grab you, ripping you from your best efforts at stability. The effects of trauma, including high levels of anxiety, may make you wish you could simply just get rid of your emotions. It doesn't seem to matter how smart you are or how great a problem-solver you are in other areas of your life. The end result is that you're discouraged. I offer a collaborative approach with interventions that work. Come work with me and find hope and change.

I strive to provide effective clinical experiences focused on mental health or substance misuse issues. Relationship dynamics can promote problems. Including partners or dependents can quicken the healing process. According to (Relationship, Health, & Marriage: 2005) less than half the participants actually benefit. My job is to understand your problems, see potential solutions, and search for ways to help. Transferred learning from the therapy experience to "real life" means we were successful. "Clients often report the benefits of treatment endure and may continue to improve after therapy" (Am. Psych. Association 2013).

I'm glad you are here. Life is hard enough with out beating yourself up and telling yourself you suck as a person, friend, partner, parent, child, employee, and on, and on. It's important to find space to give your mind a break from the negative chatter you use to push yourself forward but only holds you back. You have worth. All those to do lists can wait. Start finding moments of peace and connection to others. Take some time to be in the moment and enjoy the right now.

Are you experiencing feelings of extreme sadness, loneliness, or anxiety? Do you feel emotionally disconnected from your loved ones? Do you feel like life’s challenges are stealing joy from the relationships you hold so dear? Our behaviors are largely dictated by what we think and by the way we feel. Our thoughts and feelings have a lot to do with our experiences within ourselves, in our relationships, and with the world around us. These experiences often cause feelings such as loneliness, depression, helplessness, anxiety, worthlessness, confusion, and isolation. If this is you, you can overcome and begin to live again.

Being human is hard, and we don't get an instruction manual. At times, we get stuck in patterns that prevent us from moving toward our best life. Whether those patterns are thoughts, relationships, past hurts, or habits, therapy provides a safe place to examine those things which are no longer serving us, and the tools to approach these challenges in new ways.
