Hello! I am a Licensed Professional Counselor (LPC) licensed in the state of Virginia and a Certified Clinical Trauma Professional (CCTP) certified by the International Association of Trauma Professionals. I also hold a Graduated Certificate from Liberty University in Pastoral Counseling.
My counseling experience includes working with individuals who have experienced a variety of reasons for seeking help to include but not limited to trauma, grief/loss, substance abuse, self-worth/self-esteem issues, stress management, relationship challenges, symptom management, spiritual conflicts, effective/assertive communication, depression and anxiety. Additionally, I have facilitated support and counseling groups for the geriatric population and their adult caregivers.
By offering Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) and Solution Focused-Brief Therapy (SFBT), I am able to walk side by side with individuals seeking healing and wellness. Walking side by side means providing a safe environment for you to speak freely while I listen, ask questions, provide feedback and challenge thoughts that may reveal "stuck points", thereby empowering you to make positive change while meeting your treatment goals. I look forward to working with you whether you are seeking Christian counseling or non-faith based counseling.
Additional areas of focus: Relationship issues, Family conflicts, Grief, Anger management, Depression, Coping with life changes, Coaching, Aging and Geriatric Issues, Caregiver Issues and Stress, Communication Problems, Forgiveness, Guilt and Shame, Life Purpose, Obsessions, Compulsions, and OCD, Panic Disorder and Panic Attacks, Phobias, Post-traumatic Stress, Social Anxiety and Phobia
Clinical approaches: Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Solution-Focused Therapy, Trauma-Focused Therapy

Loved my few sessions with Toy because she was helpful and encouraging. But she unfortunately is very busy and doesn’t respond to messages in a timely manner. She wasn’t responding in a live chat session and so it logged us out in the middle of our session. Finding a new therapist. Disappointed.

I have only had one session with Toy and I felt like a new person! She listened, I mean really listened! She offered up front feedback, she understood what I was saying, and she was personable. I felt comfortable speaking with her and I’m looking forward to our next session!
