The results of therapy can be beautiful and life changing--I enjoy the privilege in assisting each client to navigate their struggles & symptoms and reach the peace they desire. I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker in Virginia and a Licensed Certified Social Worker-Clinical in Maryland who specializes in Anxiety Disorders, Substance-Use and Addiction Disorders, Supportive Spouses or Loved One of Someone with an Addiction, PTSD, complex trauma, and other trauma, Mood Disorders, Relationship Issues, Life Transitions, Women's Issues, and some Couple/Martial issues.

My belief for therapy is that everyone has a life in mind, a way they want to be, a way they want to live. Sometimes there are barriers or difficulties along the journey to becoming our ideal self. My goal is to create a safe place for you to be open, explore yourself, learn, grow, and, most importantly, heal. I believe therapeutic work should be collaborative, with you as the expert about you, and I welcome feedback as to how I can serve you better. By applying a variety of techniques, together we will uncover behavior patterns or perceptions that are holding you back from thriving and shining!
