I am a (licensed) professional mental health counselor in the state of Virginia and Florida with over a decade of experience working in the school, community, non-profit, and private practice settings with teens and families. I have worked with clients who report various concerns, including anxiety, depression, anger, ADHD, social/familial concerns, or recent loss. I specialize in person-centered and strengths-based approaches to therapy. I enjoy inviting expressive arts, creativity, mindfulness, movement, and narrative techniques into the process, and I am working toward a doctoral degree in Mind-Body Medicine (with a Specialization in Integrative Mental Health) at Saybrook University. My research interests include a blend of spirituality, creativity, and nature within the mental healthcare profession. I have completed a host of courses in play therapy, mindfulness, guided imagery, art, nutrition/wellness, and movement.
I am hopeful that what you are encountering, whether it is a mental, emotional, physical, or spiritual stressor, that you can develop and apply healthier, productive tools and strategies to assist with navigating these obstacles long after. You took the first step; let's take the second step together.
I am excited to work with you!
