I help address the root causes of behavioral disorders and mental health issues, whether that be stress in the home, work related stressors, physical, relational, etc.. I use an array of psychotherapy modalities including play therapy (sand, art, dance, music), cognitive behavioral therapy, mindfulness, family counseling (and more) as well as industrial organizational psychology modalities for work related stressors. The goal is to decrease the behavioral disorders and / or mental health symptoms to restore optimal functioning in the home and work environment.

I tailor my counseling approaches to the unique needs of each client and rely on structural, multigenerational, cognitive behavioral, narrative, and solution-focused approaches to guide my counseling efforts.

Therapy is one accessible avenue of healing and growth in our mental, emotional, spiritual, and physical lives. You don’t have to be going through a crisis or challenging time to benefit from all therapy has to offer. In a space that offers objectivity, authenticity, non-judgement, along with knowledge, therapy is an opportunity to examine oneself and cultivate new skills, leading to greater personal responsibility, and healthier relationships with self and others. Relationships are central to humanity; we flourish when we are living in authentic, deep, life-giving relationships and community with self and others.

Throughout our lives, we all experience periods of darkness and struggle. It's only natural that sometimes we want to give up -- whether it's on our relationships, our passions, or even ourselves. For those experiencing difficulty with their intimate relationships, communication with significant others, exploring gender or sexual identity, depression, or traumatic experiences, psychotherapy with me may be a route to better health and wellness.

Even strong, smart successful people know when to utilize the help of experts. Maybe you’re not in crisis, just a couple in a “good enough” relationship, but some of the time things get painfully off track. Or an individual whose life seems to be going pretty well on the outside – but privately, you’re hurting. Sometimes, your ways of “getting by” turn into habits that need to be amended. It’s not always clear how to go about initiating change and it helps to have an objective perspective. Counseling is a great way to improve your life. Together we will explore, identify, and rebuild habits and patterns to provide lasting change.

What type of Williamsburg 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 Williamsburg?
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.
