Hi, my name is Cameron. I’m looking forward to helping you work through the things that bring you to therapy. I approach the work that I do with the belief that the relationship we create is a critical component in helping you succeed in therapy. I believe we all have the ability to work through challenging things in our life. I create an environment that is open, caring, and accepting so you are able to do just that.
I believe in guiding and encouraging people to become their true selves. Healing and growth that promotes a healthy and productive lifestyle is crucial. I have over 30 years of experience as a therapist. I earned my Bachelor of Arts from East Carolina University in Psychology and my Master of Science degree at Virginia Commonwealth University. Licensed in the State of Virginia, I have a work history in several outpatient, inpatient, and residential treatment settings.
Feeling stuck is a part of life, but that doesn’t mean you have to figure it out by yourself. There are many pieces that play a part in being in a tough place that make each situation different. I am experienced in working with many issues including depression, relationship issues, anxiety, and traumatic stress. I am passionate about women’s issues, cultural diversity, and am LGBTQ+ affirmative. Life gets really difficult sometimes - you are stronger and more resilient than you think.

I believe in a compassionate approach to therapy, working collaboratively to see inner and outer challenges in new ways so that you can have new choices in how you wish to them. Sometimes, it's useful to look to the past in therapy so as to change old patterns of thought, emotion and behavior in order to discover more liberating ways of being in the present and the future. Therapy also focuses on developing new skills to handle one's emotions and relationships so as to decrease suffering and work more effectively towards the goals that you care deeply about.

Thank you for visiting my site. I have been working in the field of human service for over 13 years. During my childhood and adolescence and into my adult years, I have always wanted to help others. Individuals have always found it easy to share their most inner and private thoughts with me without fear of being judged. I never considered myself to be different when it comes to loss and struggles of everyday life, yet I learned to embrace challenges with my fullest potential.
