About me

As a Marriage/Family, Individual and Adolescent Therapist, I subscribe to trauma-informed strength based, Cognitive Behavioral and Gestalt models of therapies, believing in the importance and connection of choice, empowerment, thinking and feeling for creating long-lasting change within individuals and their varying "parts of self".

"Life without change is not living; To be uncomfortable means that change is right around the corner!" I believe these words wholeheartedly as every individual arrives at a crossroads that determine whether they move forward, backward or remain stagnant. I work alongside those who may be within a crossroad in life that has them questioning which direction to choose. In my work as a Therapist, my clinical training and experience encompasses depression, couples enrichment, grief/loss, separation/divorce, relationship issues, and other emotional/interpersonal disturbances. I specialize in trauma such as sexual abuse, domestic violence, and death/illness.

I work with clients who may be struggling with mental discomfort or trauma related to their relationships or family. At our initial sessions, we delve deeply into the presenting issues, and collaborately create plans for addressing them in a way that helps you get your "control" back. Most of my clients see a gradual lifting of symptoms within the first month and sustained improvement thereafter. I have over 14 years of experience helping adults, teens and families in crisis. I'm licensed in VA and reciprocity states! I provide therapy internationally as well, due to advances in teletherapy! I hold additional certification in both trauma & body therapies and modalities.

I often use Reality & Rational Emotive Behavioral Therapy in my practice. In your first session, we'll explore what brought you to therapy and then decide the most appropriate ways to help you make progress. These two approaches allow us to look at how your thoughts affect your emotions/experience, learning how to push back against them to truly change your feelings and choices for the better. Through exploring your sense of meaning and empowering your "choices", I can help you gain the ability to achieve personal growth, autonomy, improved relationships, regulated emotions, increased self-esteem, clarified self-identity, coping skills, increased communication and problem-solving skills, decreased anxiety and depression, improved lifestyle, and a deeper sense of self-worth.
