Great to meet you!

I am a Licensed Professional Counselor in Virginia with over 15 years of experience working in counseling, crisis intervention, and conflict resolution. I have worked with various populations, targeting issues related to depression, anxiety, mood instability, ADHD, and grief. In addition to helping through life transitions while addressing relationship, parenting or military issues. While I have experience working with the adult population, I specialize in working with children and adolescence.

A bit about my approach to therapy

Using a person-centered approach and CBT techniques, I offer an interactive style of therapy to ensure healthy engagement and interaction. I understand that one size does not fit all, and I take pride in meeting clients where they are at so they are working at their own pace towards success.

What you can expect from our first session

We will work together to develop a treatment plan that is personalized to you. We will discuss challenges preventing you from reaching those goals and then address them collaboratively to help you reach success.
