How can I be helpful to you? The main approach I use in my work is one of collaboration, with a deep respect for the unique qualities of each individual client. The kind of psychotherapy I do is often called "Relational" and it is grounded in contemporary psychodynamic principles and research. A basic premise is that our relationships with others have a profound and enduring influence on our feelings, thoughts, and behaviors. How this is playing out in the here and now is often what brings people to therapy.
As a psychotherapist, I believe that each of us holds the capacity to utilize our personal creativity to resolve life's challenges. I seek to assist the folks I work with to find their strengths. I utilize a number of therapeutic modalities, including Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Solution Focused, Interactive Guided Imagery, and Ericksonian Hypnosis, play therapy, including work with sand tray. Upon the initial therapy session, we will work together to determine the most beneficial modality for you, your family, or your child. In addition, I may suggest expressive arts as a vehicle to create life changes.
I am a professional counselor licensed in Virginia with over 7 years of experience working in various settings including schools, in home, and Outpatient. I have worked with clients with a wide range of concerns including grief, depression, anxiety, relationship issues, parenting problems, career challenges, OCD and ADHD, Bipolar Disorder, substance use issues and the LGBTQ population. I have also helped many people who have experienced trauma and emotional abuse. I consider myself a very spiritual person and like to incorporate spiritual practices into my work!

I provide a holistic approach that will address the physical, mental, spiritual, and emotional person as a whole. My theoretical approach is a combination of cognitive-behavioral, person centered, and solution focused therapies. I work with my clients to understand their worldview and underlying concerns and provide a safe and supportive environment where they can understand the underlying patterns of their difficulties, learn to empower themselves, and take steps to improve their current situation.
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.
Are you suffering from anxiety, depression, or unresolved grief? Do you find old traumas are getting in the way of relationships or the life you desire? Wounds from the past can build upon one another until all feels like a tangled mess. Whether you are seeking relief from traumatic memories or simply someone to help guide you in the direction of healthy coping strategies, I would be honored to be a part of your journey. My intention is to create an environment of compassion, connection, and healing. How would life be different if you experienced freedom from your anxiety or depression? Let’s work together to get you there!

You are a high achieving individual in many ways, but seem to come up short when it comes to having meaningful, successful relationships with others and struggle with self confidence. You have been defined by others in your life as “successful” but are still left feeling unfilled and unhappy. Maybe negative thoughts swirl around your head when you are trying to get work done or fall asleep at night. Or maybe you experience difficulty concentrating because you are so worried if the person next to you is upset with you and constantly worry if you can make the people around you happy.

Are you struggling with sexually problematic behavior? Do you think you may be addicted to pornography? Has your spouse betrayed trust by crossing emotional boundaries with someone else?
