About me

I am a clinical social worker licensed in Virginia with over 10 years of experience. I have worked with teens and adults with a wide range of concerns including depression, anxiety, relationship issues, career challenges, and substance abuse.

My counseling style is warm and interactive. I believe everyone has strengths that can be capitalized on as they gain insights and skills to navigate life. I am here to help you increase self-awareness, gain new perspectives, decrease symptoms, and have a more meaningful life experience. My approach combines strength-based, solution focused, cognitive-behavioral, and dialectal. I will tailor my approach and treatment plan to meet your needs. Everyone should have a safe and healing place to work through life's difficulties. I enjoy working with teens and adults of all backgrounds, abilities, and am LGBTQ+ friendly.

It takes courage to seek for a more fulfilling and happier life and to take the first steps towards a change. If you are ready to take that step I am here to support and empower you.

I look forward to working with you!
