Hello and thank you for taking the time to check out my profile. I'm a licensed clinical psychologist who is currently practicing in northern VA. I am also a former resident of California, where I am licensed as well.
I have both a Masters degree and a Doctoral degree in clinical psychology; with a focus in adolescent and family therapy. I have provided services in a wide range of settings to include: schools, shelters, community based mental health clinics and many more! Currently, I am working in a national security setting along with maintaining my own private practice and I have traveled globally meeting and working with people from all cultures.
Change can be difficult, but you’ve taken a first step and I’m here to walk with you every inch of the way. I am warm, caring, compassionate and experienced. As a therapist, I frequently use Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (because it’s straight forward and it works!) with sprinkles of various other psychological theories mixed in. Collaboration is also important to me. Yes, I am an expert in psychology, but you are the expert in your own life and together we will create a plan that will help you to achieve your desired goals. Results matter to me and I am committed to the counseling process and to your success.
I’m here to help and hope to meet you soon!
