TELETHERAPY AVAILABLE: Many times we navigate through the world feeling lost, alone, and even scared. We may tell ourselves that "nobody understands me," "nobody loves me," or "people have it much worst than I do, so why do I deserve to be kind to myself." Many of us tell ourselves some sort of variation of these things from time to time. Some of us may tell ourselves these statements on the daily basis. Come join me as we explore your relationship with yourself as well as your relationship with others.

Are you ready to take ownership over your healing from past hurts? Feel willing to work towards change to create the life you want? I enjoy working with teens and adults who are ready and willing to work towards change, who take the lead in the healing process and recognize that I, as a therapist, can provide tools, but they must do the hard work of using these tools if they want to grow and to heal. It is rewarding to teach clients skills to help them manage their emotions in difficult times, and to help clients figure out which skills are most effective for them. I work with individual clients as well as families and couples.

You may be looking for help with a life problem, feel conflicted in your relationship, or are overwhelmed by a major life change. Perhaps you are depressed, anxious, or simply want to learn more about yourself, and why you made certain choices in life. People enter psychotherapy for many reasons, and through this work come to discover strengths, insights, and methods to change behavior and solve problems. You discover a lot about yourself—which can lead you to move from surviving to thriving in life. I would like to help you in this process.

Then, I engage my client(s) in the creative process. As an Art Therapy, I provide support, encouragement, and a safe space for the creative process to take place. After the artmaking, I encourage my clients to share their experiences and artwork, while I guide them in the process of self-discovery.

I am here to help children, teens and their parents develop well-being during these very stressful times. Raising children is hard; raising children who have ADHD, relationship difficulties, anxiety, learning issues, and/or depression is even harder. Parents need help and so do their kids. Therapy and coaching offer a venue to express feelings, practice new skills, and establish new ways of connecting with one another. I have also traveled extensively and completed my doctoral research on acculturation, academic stress, and burnout and have a unique interest and skill set in serving families returning to the US from abroad.

What type of Fairfax mental health professional is right for me?
While most types of therapy have a lot in common, they also fall into clusters that share core features, such as cognitive therapies or psychodynamic approaches. It is important to seek someone who practices evidence-based therapy, meaning one or more forms of treatment that have been scientifically evaluated and tested, and demonstrate consistent improvement for a majority of patients.

If you are unsure about choosing the right therapist, it might be useful to first learn more about therapy types and modalities.
How to find a therapist in Fairfax?
When looking to find a therapist, it is certainly important to consider training and credentials. Studies also indicate that the therapeutic alliance, or the relationship the client develops with the therapist, is an important factor in their ability to work together to achieve the client’s goals.

What method of therapy is right for me?
When it comes to treatment methods, there's no 'right way.’ Each method of therapy can be beneficial for a variety of issues. Finding a psychologist or therapist who is a good fit for you is the most important step to discovering what type of therapy, or combination of therapeutic approaches, will meet your individual needs. Learn what to expect from different types of therapy and how they work.

How to use my insurance?
Understanding cost and insurance coverage is an important concern for many people. With some basic research and conversations with prospective therapists, you should be able to have a good understanding of the best way to afford therapy.
