Sometimes life’s challenges can be overwhelming, and you may seek professional counseling to regain your life balance, energy, and happiness. Everyone’s situation is unique so together we will design the best plan to meet your needs and to find healthy solutions to life’s challenges.
I believe each person has the potential to lead a joyful and meaningful life. In a safe and supportive environment, I facilitate your exploration to promote wellness, personal growth, and positive life changes. I work together with the client to develop strengths, reach goals, and foster emotional healing. I offer insightful support to your growth in developing healthier coping strategies, identifying effective problem-solving skills, and improving communication skills.
I help families to cope more effectively and gain new perspectives on issues. In couples counseling, I focus on relationship repair, healing, and skill building for improved communication, emotional connection, and intimacy.
I earned my Master’s Degree in Counseling from Virginia Tech. In addition to being a Licensed Professional Counselor, I am a National Certified Counselor and a Certified Clinical Trauma Professional. My experience and training have been in private practice, community mental health agencies with adults and in school counseling with children and teens of all ages.
My style is warm and caring and down to earth. I integrate a combination of counseling approaches to best meet the client’s needs and to facilitate the client’s therapy wishes, including Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Solution-Focused, Dialectical Behavior Therapy, EMDR, Motivational Interviewing, Person-Centered, and Play Therapy for Children. I also utilize mindfulness meditation, relaxation exercises, and visualization.
I offer therapeutic services for issues addressing life’s challenges and transitions, including anxiety, depression, divorce/separation, stress management, trauma, PTSD, ADHD, self-esteem, body image, anger management, and grief and loss.
In my work with adolescents, I address teen issues including academic concerns, peer relationships, eating disorders, anxiety, depression, self-identity, self-esteem, and coping skills.
I look forward to supporting you on your journey to live a more authentic and fulfilled life, aligned with your highest potential.
