I will incorporate strategies like CBT and DBT and customize them to you! In our work together, you will learn to be more present and new ways to express your emotions.
Do you get caught up in negative or irrational thoughts? Are your reactions exaggerated and ruin your relationships? Do you get overwhelmed easily and feel stuck in life? Do you self-blame and be critical of yourself? Together we will identify and explore your intense emotions and experiences that keep you feeling like you're in a hamster well. I provide an empathic space that is judgment-free. My experience includes working with children, adolescents, and adults who struggle with intense emotions, mood disorders, trauma, self-harm, anxiety, and depression.

I pull from several evidence-based therapeutic modalities, such as CBT and DBT , in order to individualize your treatment based on your needs and goals.
Navigating life as a young adult is a challenge. Some of us seek stability among life's chaos, while others seek excitement among life's mundanity. I am here to help you identify your needs and desires during both transitional and stagnant periods of your life. I firmly believe the therapeutic relationship provides the groundwork for healing and I prioritize building rapport and mutual trust. Together, we will dive beneath surface issues, discover the underlying reasons for distress, and build strategies to take control of your life.

I am trained in and utilize many different therapeutic models and techniques (primarily CBT, DBT , Intergenerational family therapy, and EMDR).
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.

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.

In my clinical experience, that both Dialectical Behavior Therapy ( DBT ) and IFS has been most effective at providing clients an opportunity for positive change.
I primarily support adolescents and adults who present with a variety of mental health issues including depression, anxiety, personality disorders, trauma and those who struggle with emotion regulation and tolerating discomfort. Typically, my clients have a history of unsuccessful treatments and often present with a history of prior hospitalizations. Many of my clients struggle with self-harming behaviors, substance use and/or suicidal ideation. I also support couples and families seeking a more balanced family dynamic. I work as part of a team at In Step, collaboratively working to support teens, their parents, and adults.

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 or psychologist, it might be useful to first learn more about therapy types and modalities.

How to find a therapist or counselor in Fairfax?
When looking to find a therapist, start by considering 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.
