I provide both in person and online couples counseling and adult, individual psychotherapy. The majority of my clients are ready to continue to grow, both as individuals and in their relationships, but are finding that old patterns might be getting in the way. My goal as a clinician is to balance emotional validation and safety with action-oriented approaches.

I am a health at every size, body positive, and sex positive therapist.
I help couples at an impasse move to a place of clarity. The love is there, but the issues between them feel insurmountable. My approach is systemic to ensure that the individuals in every relationship I work with feel heard while working toward a resolution.

I offer a genuine connection to my patients, which I believe to be the heart of psychotherapy. Each individual is unique, and so is their purpose in seeking therapy. I prioritize the relationship with individuals above any tool, or technique. As a result, I have seen my patients change and have witnessed their transformation.

Hello! Thank you for visiting my profile and congratulations on taking this step to practice self-care. I love therapy because it is the perfect problem-solving option for people searching for a confidential and effective support system outside of family and friends. I provide short term and long term talk therapy for anxiety, depression, trauma, and grief. I earned my bachelor’s degree from The University of Virginia, my master’s degree in Social Work from Columbia University, and my training certificates from Harvard Medical School in meditation and mindfulness and New York State Psychiatric Institute.

I have explored the mind-body connection since 1980. I use healing and recovery models of therapy that respect my clients' strength and potential. I specialize in gentle and supportive methods of assisting clients to overcome the recurrent effects of trauma. I have advanced training and experience with mind/body modalities including EMDR to facilitate healing and foster posttraumatic growth. This generally involves helping a client learn to manage the recurrent symptoms of trauma and concurrently address and heal from the cause.

Currently accepting new clients! I am a Resident in Counseling at Full Life PC (under supervision of Hunter Teets, MA LPC, VA license 0701005525). I believe that all people have the capacity to change when in a safe, encouraging environment. By attending to the whole You instead of just symptoms, we can help you find a greater sense of purpose and peace. My style of counseling emphasizes the therapeutic relationship, and often utilizes humor, perspective-taking, and focus on connecting authentically and non-judgmentally. Sometimes being a person is hard, especially these days, and we just need somewhere to talk about it!

Now accepting clients for couple therapy: Clients tend to come into therapy with feelings like anxiety, sadness, resentment, or disappointment. Couples may have unresolved relationship conflicts, needing reconnection and healing. They may also be seeking help with infertility, birth loss or trauma, postpartum depression or anxiety, parenting issues, divorce, grief, or complicated childhood experiences that impact the current relationship. We work together to close the gaps of disconnection and bring you closer, repairing the ruptures you have with less pain and more vulnerability and safety.

As a counselor, I understand that trauma occurs at any age, in many different forms. It can be overt, in the case of physical abuse and death; ambiguous, in the form of divorce, break-ups, peer pressure, bullying and the impact of social media. It can also be entirely hidden from our consciousness. Counseling is a way to approach and connect with trauma in a safe place. It is a way to help yourself heal.

Do you "overthink"? Are you constantly criticizing yourself? Are you often fearing the worst-case scenario? Do you find it difficult to get through the day without worry, stress, or even panic? Do you feel like you're not good enough? Do you struggle with your emotions? Do you often feel overwhelmed? Do you feel sad, down, or numb? Are you having difficulty functioning in a less structured environment due to ADHD? Are you having trouble with a life transition, such as a new job, or stress in your relationship? Do you sometimes feel like giving up? It’s often difficult to imagine things changing. However, change IS possible!

Do you feel chronically disconnected or stuck in unhelpful patterns despite "knowing better"? This misalignment might be affecting your physical health, your relationships, your sense of self, and your visions for the future. While many of the strategies you relied upon in early life were both necessary and adaptive, they can also become what hold you back later in life. What if we explore some of your origin stories and update those defaults to better reflect who you are, instead of who you believed you had to be? What if we deepen your self-belonging, thereby strengthening your capacity to connect more effortlessly with others?

I’m so glad you’re here. We all pursue therapy for different reasons. Sometimes we need an objective person to talk through our problems with, sometimes we are experiencing depression and anxiety and need help developing ways to manage and cope with symptoms, and other times we just need a safe space to be ourselves; but whatever brought you here I’m glad you are taking the first steps in seeking help. I know how scary and overwhelming life can feel sometimes. I am a big believer in the power of our thoughts. If we can learn to change or challenge our thoughts, we change how we feel and how we act.

NOTE: Currently OPEN for enrollment in group; waitlist only for individual therapy. People who benefit from therapy with me have often felt misunderstood or even harmed by the mental health system. Whether because of sexuality, gender identity, spirituality, neurodivergence, or non-mainstream relationships, they have found therapy to be unwelcoming or unsafe. This means I try never to take your trust for granted. I engage as fully as possible with your values, needs, and preferences, and I adapt my approach based on your response and feedback. You're always steering the ship in your therapy—I am only a guide.

I am passionate about the connection with one's core self. I have found that trauma and transitions can result in a disconnect with the core self and that peace and healing can be achieved by repairing this connection. Pre-adolescence, adolescence, and early adulthood are times marked by a myriad of major transitions. This process of transitioning between life stages continues across the lifespan. Additionally, a disconnect with the core self may be rooted in trauma or transition that happened many years ago. To this end, I provide services to preteens, teens, and adults.
