I am a warm and accepting counselor licensed in Virginia with over 4 years of experience working as a child, adolescent, and early adult counselor. I have worked with clients with a wide range of concerns including depression, anxiety, relationship issues, parenting problems, career challenges, OCD and ADHD. I also helped many people who have experienced physical trauma or emotional abuse. I have a passion for working with those who are feeling lost or unsure of themselves. I believe deeply in working together to develop a sacred and healing place that is needed for growth and transformation to happen.
My counseling style is accepting, nonjudgmental, and interactive. I believe all change begins with curiosity and taking a first step. I strive to create space for healing, connection, and courage. My approach combines cognitive-behavioral, humanistic counseling, and wellness model, which means I work hard to facilitate a process that will accomplish your goals by focusing on strengths and sources of resilience. I believe in creating a therapeutic counseling relationship that promotes unconditional positive regard and acceptance. My goal is that you will feel safe to entrust our relationship to hold your stories and this will enable you to take the risks needed for growth and self-exploration moving forward.
It's not easy to change and seek help. It takes strength to demand more out of life and to move yourself to this place. If you are ready to stop going with the flow and take charge of your of your journey. I am here to guide, support, challenge, and empower you.
I look forward to working with you soon!
