Making the decision to begin therapy can be intimidating and overwhelming. I am committed to providing a compassionate and safe environment where you can begin to explore your concerns and work toward the change you wish to make in your life. I would be honored to walk with you during this journey. Call me for a free phone consultation and to see if I am a good fit for your needs.
I am a psychotherapist (licensed clinical social worker in the Commonwealth of Virginia) with years of experience providing therapy to adults and adolescents. I have worked in a variety of settings, such as university counseling centers, VA hospitals, community mental health agencies, and school settings. In addition to providing individual, couples, and group therapy, I have held many different positions throughout my career. I have coordinated group therapy services for an agency, provided outreach and education on topics related to mental health and wellness, and supervised graduate students. I love the work that I do every day and I feel honored to sit with individuals during some of the most difficult and transformative times in their lives. Outside of practicing therapy, I enjoy spending time with my family, being outside, cooking, reading, and enjoying a great cup of coffee.
I take an integrative approach to practicing therapy. This means I draw on a variety of interventions and tailor my work to meet the unique needs of each client. I may explore past relationships and experiences to better understand how these may be continuing to impact the patterns in your life. I also believe it is important to look at the whole person and to understand how the many facets of your context and identity may be impacting your concerns. I will always provide space to focus on immediate needs and will check in with you throughout treatment to make sure you feel that your needs are being met. I believe it is essential that we have a strong therapeutic relationship so that you feel safe and comfortable exploring your concerns and beginning to make the changes you desire in your life.
