About me

Hello, I am a Licensed Therapist (LPC) in Virginia, USA with over 23 years of professional work experience. I have helped clients (both adults and children/adolescents) with various mental health and/or life struggles related to depression, anxiety, coping with trauma/abuse, stress, anger and impulse control problems, grief, aging, difficulties adjusting, low self-esteem, attention deficits, autism spectrum, relational/marital problems, substance abuse issues, parenting challenges, Military/ Veterans issues, care taker fatigue/burn out, Gender dysphoria and LGBTQ issues. Some of the therapeutic techniques I utilize include but are not limited to: Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT), Client-Centered Therapy, Mindfulness, Trauma-Focused Therapy, Solution Focused Therapy, Emotionally Focused Therapy, Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT), Psychodynamic Therapy, Motivational Interviewing, and some Attachment-Based Therapy skills as well as a strength and goal oriented approach. I believe that you are the expert of your story and that you have many strengths that will assist you in overcoming things that challenge you. With my clients I strive to create an open and safe environment where thoughts and feelings can be shared without fear of judgment. Taking the first step to seeking a more fulfilling and happier life takes courage. I am here to support you in that process. Together we can focus on the goals you would like to achieve and collaborate to bring some relief to your stressors. I offer my therapy services in both English or German language and look forward to working with you.

Ina is wonderful! She is a great listener and then gives excellent, practical, actionable advice. I have benefited from her therapy (and continue to do so). Highly Recommend!

Ina is kind, intelligent, and very attentive.
I feel like the tools she’s taught/ recommended for me have helped me stay focused on the solution rather than the problems.
I highly recommend Ina as a resource to support development and nurturing of self resilience. She’s phenomenal!

Ina is a wonderful therapist! She is very attentive and seems to find the root of the problem most of the time. She is considerate of time and always willing to work with my schedule. I am amazed by the progress I've made in just two weeks. I would most definitely recommend her to a friend!
