Specifically, I'm trained in LGBTQ + affirming CBT, Person Centered, Gestalt and Narrative Therapies.
Accepting Telehealth/Virtual Clients Only - Are some of your past coping skills not having the same effect? In our sessions, we will focus on being present with our mind and body. Through this gained awareness, we will co-construct meaningful experiences. Sometimes we may need the space or support to tune into our needs, body and its reactions. Therapy can be a place to learn and cultivate that.

I am pro LGBTQ , anti-racist and serve all religions.
As a therapist, I have much to offer. My many varied years of professional experience as a clinical social worker, my excellent education, combined with my personal life experience serves me well. Together, we collaborate on a new trusted relationship built on safety that has the potential to aid your growth with whatever issue you choose to work on. I work especially well with children and adolescents and have a good foundation in play therapy, yet adults are often surprised that I can work equally well with their concerns. We can design an approach that works for you.

I also have significant experience working with magnetized populations military, DV, and LGBTQ communities.
No matter who you are, life is always changing, filled with challenges, transitions, doubts, and sometimes successes. This is the human experience, and you do not have to go it alone. Counseling is an available resource to help hone your natural talents and skills to find vision, motivation, meaning, and resolve through your choices and experiences. With the support of a professional counselor there are no dead-end scenarios. I thoroughly believe in meeting clients where they are at, treating individuals with dignity and respect no matter who they are or where they come from, celebrating differences and individuality.

Imagine: it seems like no matter what we do, we feel 'trapped' or helpless in a stressful situation.

I also work with concerns including LGBTQ + specific issues, substance use, life transitions, grief and loss, family issues, racial stressors, and issues or trauma related to religion or spirituality.

I also work with caretakers of those living with Alzheimer's and other dementias, and am LGBTQ + allied.
Do you find yourself feeling stressed, overwhelmed, or anxious? Is your child experiencing behavioral issues? Everyone needs additional support from time to time to deal with life's challenges. I view clients as experts of their own experiences and take a collaborative approach to counseling. Working together, we can develop the tools and insights needed to achieve your therapeutic goals. In addition to this person-centered approach, I utilize solutions-focused, acceptance and commitment (ACT), cognitive behavioral (CBT), and dialectical behavioral (DBT) therapeutic modalities and mindfulness tools based on clients' needs.

I specialize in working affirmatively with men and trans men/masculine individuals living with compulsive behaviors and anxiety to gain and maintain recovery, break painful patterns, and find trustworthy relationships.
If you've said many times, over periods of time, "I can't keep living like this. Something has to change," then now is the time to make that change. If you’re feeling overwhelmed and stuck, anxious and worried, curious about or ready to quit drinking/using, overly critical of yourself and others, sick of putting others before you, paralyzed by perfectionism, and losing yourself while people-pleasing the world, then notice the voice inside saying, "Something has to change.” The courage -is- inside you to make that call or send that email to make changes now. If you answer "yes" to any of these, reach out below to get help.

Welcome! Sometimes we decide that we need a change in our lives. Maybe anxiety, depression, or a past experience has limited our views of ourselves and what we think we are able to do. Or we’re struggling with who we are and what feels most meaningful to us. Or we want to improve the way we perform. Taking a step toward change—especially the first step—can feel like standing still. But notice what happens when you can string a few steps together: suddenly you're a little bit further than you were before, and before you realize it, you're a lot further. That's the power of MOMENTUM.

My mission in life is to assist others in developing their “Best-Self” to get as much pleasure from living their lives as they desire, which will be learned from their newfound insight through their own process and reflection work with me. This includes loving themselves, understanding their purpose in life, and developing a reflective self-care routine. Understanding that at certain points in our lives we all may "hit a wall" whether it be emotionally, financially, or physically; but too understanding that walls are put in place to for us to  lean on, rest upon, and reset our plan to achieve our prospective goals.

By the time most people are seeking a therapist, they have been struggling with significant challenges that have not gotten better with time, effort, or the help of family and friends. As a clinical psychologist, I am passionate about connecting with people in that stuck place for which there are no easy answers and working together to find solutions. The key ingredient in my work is my capacity to establish a trusting, cooperative, confidential, safe, and non-judgmental partnership with you in which you can better understand what is going on and learn more effective ways of meeting your life's challenges.

What type of Woodbridge 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 Woodbridge?
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.
