About Me

Be kind, for everyone you meet is fighting a hard battle.
- Plato

This is absolutely my favorite quote because it encompasses so much. You never know what another person is going through, and the reality is that we are all struggling with something. Congratulations on having the courage to reach out and ask for guidance during a difficult time.

I am a Licensed Professional Counselor in Virginia with 10 years of experience in a multitude of areas. I worked for 5 years at a residential behavioral health facility with kids and teens, and the last 5 years I've worked as a contract counselor with the military. I come from a military family, having grown up an Army brat and become a military wife, so I have a unique perspective on issues that impact our service men and women and their families. I have extensive experience with depression, anxiety, behavioral issues, trauma and abuse, couples and family issues, parenting issues, and specific issues that arise within military families. Since every client is unique, my approach will be different every time, but I do have a strong background in Cognitive Behavioral Therapy and Solution Focused Therapy. Both of these approaches require active engagement from the client, but you set the pace. After all, you are the expert on you. I also try to take a holistic view of my clients and incorporate all aspects of your lifestyle into our therapy. The mind/body connection is strong, and issues in one area tend to impact other areas quickly. Mindfulness and self-care are very important to me, and these are areas I stress for my clients as well.

Take care, and I look forward to hearing from you!

Becky is by far the best counselor I've ever met with. She listens very well and comes up with multiple ways to move forward. Each time I get a message from her I feel better, stronger, and more capable to tackle what I need to do.

Becky has been a wonderful counselor. She provides real, practical advice and takes the time to understand me and my personality and individual needs. I would highly recommend her services!

Becky is very good at connecting with others. She makes me feel like she is an old friend of mine even though I've known her for only a short time.
