I see teens, adults, couples, and families, and my focus areas include anxiety, eating disorders, trauma, PTSD, depression, life transitions, coping skills, marital and premarital issues, sex, infidelity, codependency, parenting, self-esteem, self-harm, and borderline personality disorder. Additionally, I dedicated three years to a research study focused on enhancing resiliency for military families after deployment, and find great fulfillment in working with veterans.

Life is full of uncertainties, difficult decisions, and dark moments. You don't have to navigate these issues alone. I want to provide you with a fresh perspective, give some feedback, and shine some light on those dark moments. My experience includes working with individuals and teens who have suffered trauma, learning disabilities, anxiety, depression, and substance abuse. I employ a person-centered, solution-focused, and cognitive-behavioral approach to the therapeutic relationship, using techniques that are based on the client's specific needs and goals. I also utilize EMDR for processing traumatic events.

Painful past experiences and current life stressors can tremendously impact our mental health, challenge our relationships with others, and affect our sense of self. We often have to find strategies to adapt and survive difficult circumstances of disconnection, criticism, invalidation, and trauma. Without realizing it, we may develop beliefs about ourselves that are limiting and self-defeating, and we continue to operate from old patterns long after they have stopped serving us. My goal is to provide a safe, supportive, empathic, and nonjudgmental space for you to share, learn, grow, and heal.

I enjoy working with clients to address various challenges including anxiety, infidelity, communication issues in relationships, boundaries, work issues, anger management, and other challenges. In my more than 20 years of practice, I have found that I especially love working with individuals with sexual behavior issues and couples at any stage of their relationship. I also enjoy doing Christian counseling with individuals and couples who are seeking it to overcome the challenges they are facing. While I primarily work with adults, I have also worked with teens.

A good clinical match would be those seeking clarity related to life decisions, transitions, or relationships, those trying to overcome anxiety or depression, improve their self-esteem, or come to a place of contentment with their lives. I really enjoy working with college students or other adults on the cusp, or in the midst, of life changes.

I am a licensed professional counselor in Virginia with 12 years of professional work experience. When I work with clients, listening to understand instead of hearing to respond is a priority. I believe it is imperative that I develop a sound understanding of my client's subjective worldview to meet them where they are and disrupt maladaptive thoughts and patterns of behavior. My objective is to collaborate with my clients in order to help them identify, address, and resolve matters that reinforce and/or contribute to their presenting concern(s).

Lately the stress of everyday life has become more overwhelming. Emotions are running high and have started to negatively impact your relationships with others. Maybe you just don’t feel quite like yourself. You have tried to cope on your own but find it frustrating that nothing seems to work, at least not for very long. The road to change can be a long process, but you do not have to make this journey alone. Therapy helps to identify patterns that can keep us feeling “stuck” and develops insight and skills that guides us on our paths forward.

The mind is the most powerful resource of the body. It is also, unfortunately, the least managed. It keeps a record of experiences and dictates emotions to us based on those experiences. What we think, feel, and believe impacts how we interact and perform. Often, more than we know. What I do is help facilitate mind and body realignment for the achievement of optimal performance in school, at work, and in personal lives. With an eclectic and flexible approach, I integrate mindfulness, motivational interviewing, cognitive-behavioral therapy, self-reflection, and different holistic approaches to address your overall well-being.

Relationships are the foundation of our identity. Our relational experiences shape our identity, worldview, choices, patterns of interaction, and purpose in life. They let us know what is loveable about us, what needs we can expect to be met, which emotions are acceptable, and what kind of security may or may not be available to us. I work with individuals, couples, families (age 2-18) and parents, helping them understand their experiences of connection and any patterns, protections, wounds, vulnerabilities, adaptations, or indirect strategies for getting their needs met that may have emerged. I look forward to being alongside you.
