Hey You! Are you in a season of your life, where you feel stuck? Life challenges seem to have you in a holding pattern; a cycle of anxiety, emotional instability, overwhelming stress, unhealthy relationships, grief, and/or low self-esteem. You are not alone; everyone experiences seasons in life when they lose momentum. However, you don’t have to remain there. You have the right to live a fulfilled life, and this is your first step. I would love nothing more than to hold space for you to better understand your emotional strengths, learn healthy tools to manage your mood, and build confidence to walk in your wholeness.

In my experience, I have learned that “hitting rock bottom” does not mean the end of your life, but rather a chance to rebuild your life the way you want it. Life can get stressful and often leave one “suffocating” from the pressure. It is in those moments that you may need someone to stand in the chaos with you and help you rebuild. Life involves learning and "unlearning" ideals, habits, and ways of thinking. I have an eclectic theoretical approach to meet the needs of my clients, however my primary approach is Cognitive Behavioral.

I'm a Licensed Clinical Social Worker, Clinical Substance Abuse Counselor, and Certified Parent Coach. I work with clients to improve their overall quality of life. I strive to provide clients with a respectful, comfortable, and safe environment to promote positive therapeutic outcomes. I’m an empathetic listener and recognize that reaching out takes courage and strength and can be uncomfortable.
Our society today can be described as overstimulating, at best. Many of us are always ten steps ahead in the future or we are checking our rearview mirror constantly for our past. One thing I have come to realize is that we spend very little time in the present. Anxiety and depression can keep us from living and fulfilling our purpose, fulfilling our dreams, and living our life at our GOD-Given capacity. When you are lacking motivation, experiencing unexplained sadness, or being weighed down by the cares of the world, therapy can serve as a liaison between where you are and where you are trying to go. Let's release it today!
I am passionate about equipping each client with the tools and strategies needed to thrive in life. I meet my clients on their worst day to remind them they have a reason to live every day. I believe the therapeutic process is a collaborative effort with the client and therapist. I have always had a heart for people, a helping spirit and being passionate about helping individuals find their purpose. I believe people have the ability to overcome every issue of life as long as they have an ounce of hope.
I have had the privilege of working with clients for over 30 years. Educated and trained in Florida I moved to Hampton Roads to work in residential care. This gave me the opportunity to work with adolescents and families and develop additional skills in the area of substance abuse and treatment of mood, anxiety, grief, trauma, and Cognitive Disorders. Eight years ago I opened an office in Churchland; I had been in VB for almost 20 years. In July, 2013 I relocated to Northern Suffolk. The practice is a small one where confidentiality and privacy are fostered. At this time I am working with adults, providing individual therapy.
Are you feeling overwhelmed by your problems? Are you tired of having the same arguments with your loved ones? Do you feel as no one is listening to you? Do you feel unappreciated and exhausted? I can help you find peace and relaxation. I can help you and your loved one listen to one another and find a deeper connection with one another. I can help you access the change that will propel your life into new and promising directions.
I am a Licensed Professional Counselor with nearly 20 years of experience helping others understand their feelings, change unwanted behavior, repair relationships, and work through challenging situations. I believe the challenges we experience in life often stem from our reactions to day-to-day stressors, significant life events, or changes we encounter as we progress through life stages. Therefore, I aim to empower my clients with the ability to self-regulate, which with practice, helps to better navigate challenging situations as they arise.

"You find peace not by rearranging the circumstances of your life, but by realizing who you are at the deepest level." -Eckhart Tolle. My passion is to advocate for all of my clients, until they are able to do it themselves. I embrace every unique client and tailor all treatment goals to their individual needs. It's important to know a diagnosis is just that and it does not define the client. I strive to have my clients remove all labels and focus on awareness of self. As a military spouse I know first hand the struggles and stressors that affect military members and their families. I can be a guide for those difficult transitions.
