I am a couples specialist and work exclusively with marriage and marriage-type relationships. I'm a "marriage-friendly" counselor meaning your relationship is my client and I want it to succeed. I work hard for your relationship until one (or both) of you call me off. I utilize a variety of approaches but I do work most closely with attachment-based models...helping you explore your attachment, heal attachment injuries, and find ways to reach out for each other again. Affairs, "not-in-love-anymore," communication problems - I do it all.

I take a trauma-informed, attachment-based , and compassion-focused approach to guide you towards seeing yourself and your partner in a more clear, connected, and empathic way.
I believe we are wired to seek connection and security. Emotion is the language of connection so I work with individuals and couples to understand how their emotional world shapes their life. You may have learned to withdraw/numb feelings, deny or feel shame about them, or that your emotions are “too much”. Your feelings are valid, important, and resourceful, and designed to shine a light on what you are needing. Whether I am working with individuals or couples, I can support you to organize your emotions, understand their origins and functions, and utilize them to create secure, emotionally intimate, and responsive relationships.

I believe by exploring our past experiences and relationships we can find answers to better understand our own behaviors and thought processes. Our best healing happens throughout the context of a safe relationship and that is what I offer in therapy; a safe place where my client can explore their pain, trauma, hurt, and confusion in order to heal and live the most meaningful life possible. My clients know what their goals are and are excited to get to work but may need more accountability or support. Sometimes they aren't so clear and I can help with that, too!

As a systemic and attachment-based therapist, I believe we are all looking for connection, belonging, and acceptance. However old we are – infant, child, teen, or adult – we need to make sense of what happens to us, inside of us, and in our relationships. Our life experiences shape us in profound ways; our sense of self, and how we manage emotions, respond to stress, and connect with others. When life experiences are adverse, our body and brain can make meaning in ways that can cause distress. I help clients connect with their innate ability to change and heal difficult experiences so they can find peace and self-worth at any age.

I draw from EFT, CBT, Health At Every Size, and Attachment-Based therapies.
I work with adolescents and adults experiencing disordered eating and people seeking to make peace with food and their body. My work also includes people in relationships and individuals experiencing sexual problems, separation and divorce, infidelity, and co-parenting. I use a nonjudgemental, collaborative, person-centered approach to address the individual's needs. I work with individuals to help them recognize their own strengths and incorporate positive coping strategies as they move forward. I believe that creating trust and a little bit of humor go a long way in working through the struggles we face in life.

"Forgive yourself for not knowing what you didn't know until you lived through it. Honor your path. Trust your journey. Learn, Grow, Evolve, Become" That's not my quote but it's a good idea of what I believe therapy is all about. I work with clients to help them connect with their truth and to trust it. They learn how to practice self love and self care. These are important steps to finding solutions to your challenges. If our life or our self image is out of balance it wreaks havoc on our mental health. I support clients in finding balance which leads to peace and joy. If you are looking to heal or grow let's begin that journey!

Congratulations on taking the first step toward healing and change! You may have experienced a recent event that has immobilized you. Or perhaps you have been feeling this way for quite sometime. The emotions you are experiencing may be the result of the death of loved one, infertility experiences, pregnancy loss, adoption experiences, chronic or terminal illnesses, divorce, job loss or retirement, or other life transitions. You may be feeling as though others don't understand. Together we will create a meaningful therapeutic connection; together we will explore your feelings - in a non-judgmental, open and safe space.

Finding our way back to our whole self can be a difficult journey, one that asks us to connect with feelings not yet owned, wounds not yet processed, and longings not yet voiced. When our needs for comfort, validation, protection, and predictability are not met in our relationships, we can be vulnerable to feeling unworthy, unsafe, and that our needs are unimportant. The strategies we have for dealing with our unmet needs often show up in similar patterns for managing stress, distress, and disconnection. Some move towards others, hoping that if we fight loud, long, or hard enough, our pain and anger will eventually be acknowledged.

As an adoptee and a parent, I strive to bring to the counseling relationship the same empathy, understanding, and validation I desired as a child and young adult processing my own adoption and parenting experiences. Using a collaborative, client-centered, and trauma-informed approach, my goal is to cultivate a safe and trusting environment for exploration, introspection, empowerment, and autonomy. I believe that change comes when we can honor our past and experiences without judgment, acknowledge thoughts and beliefs that no longer align with our values, and take steps through values-aligned action towards our goals and healing.

I'll work with you to help you see how your story (i.e. your family and life experiences) informs your current life. Therapy is about identifying the parts of your story and the accompanying ways of coping that have an adverse effect on your life. In therapy you will get some clarity about: How your past is showing up in your present; Unhelpful coping strategies that you may be using; How you're operating in relationship to yourself and others; And healthy tools to use in place of unhealthy coping strategies.

My areas of expertise include working with parents of challenging children, trauma, sexual/physical/emotional abuse, mood, anxiety, emotional difficulties, behavioral problems, grief and loss, and children of divorced parents.

What type of Leesburg 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 Leesburg?
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.
