About Me

Hi! I am a licensed clinical social worker in Virginia and Colorado, and I have made my home in both places in recent years. Nearly eight years of experience has afforded me the opportunity to work with individuals from diverse backgrounds who range in age from five to over 90 years old. Early on I expected to find a preferred population; however, it turns out that I just like working with humans. Commonalities and strengths are always evident to me, even in the face of struggle and adversity.

Seeking health and wellness is admirable. Mental health diagnoses contain lists of symptoms that are common to the human experience, and as such, I believe are always addressable. Belief in human worth and capacity for growth are fundamental. As your therapist I will consistently regard you with respect and engagement. I believe that warmth and humor are vital in therapy as in any relationship.

I look forward to embarking upon this journey with you!
