I am licensed in Virginia with 17 years of professional work experience. I have experience in helping clients with parenting issues, relationship difficulties, and trauma. Through Parent Child Interaction Therapy, I have helped parents develop a more fulfilling relationship with their children and helped them learn to apply consistent limit setting and consequences. I use EMDR to help clients process trauma and develop ways to cope with disturbing events. I work with my clients to create an open and safe environment where thoughts and feelings can be shared without fear of judgment. It takes courage to seek out a more fulfilling and happier life and to take the first steps towards a change. I am here to support & empower you in that journey.
