Hello! I’ve been working with adolescents and young adults for over 7 years in a relationship-centered capacity. I’m here to support young people develop coping skills and challenge negative beliefs to better understand their feelings and behaviors. I work with adolescents and young adults who experience depression, anxiety, suicidal ideation, self-harm behaviors, ADHD, oppositional behaviors, anger, and developmental trauma. I especially enjoy partnering with young people who identify as LGBTIQA+ and those that are experiencing a lack of belonging, increased anger or agitation, or those seeking to heal from trauma.

Over the years I've worked with adults (including parents), adolescents and children with problems ranging from anxiety, panic, anger, depression, relationship difficulties, work/school related issues, to children with behavioral issues. It has been my privilege to help people work through their problems and overcome or rise above them. With children I often find it helpful to assist parents in addressing inattention, distractibility, disobedience, disrespect,, social difficulties and underachievement. Adolescents may have similar issues or may just need someone they feel comfortable to talk to about their concerns.

It’s been my lifelong desire and a source of deep personal satisfaction to be able to assist people who are in distress to find ways to resolve the struggles and challenges they are having, and have enjoyed helping others as I've been helped. From an early age I have known, and have come increasingly to understand, how key psychology – our understandings and attitudes - is to happiness and success, a sense of well-being, and good functioning in all areas of life. If you want that, or just want to stop hurting and feeling bad and to have better relations with the people who are important to you, I would be happy to help!

One’s experience in therapy should be as unique as they are as a person. In working with my clients, I do not use a one-size-fits-all approach because it assumes that one treatment or modality can meet the various needs of different clients. I work with children, adolescents, adults, and families on a variety of issues, including anxiety, depression, autism, trauma, behavioral concerns, intellectual disabilities, life-transitions, self-esteem, disordered eating, parenting, and family dynamics. At the core, I work to create a warm, authentic, and non-judgmental space for my clients as they go through the counseling process.

I use evidence-based treatments that are informed by cognitive-behavioral, developmental, and relational/attachment theories. I work to build open and warm relationships with my clients and I honor the ways in which one's background and culture inform our work. Therapy is a collaborative process meant to foster positive change as my clients and families develop more compassion for themselves and one another.

What type of McLean 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 McLean?
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.
