Blessings! I’m an LCSW in Northern/Central Virginia. I have experience working with all ages, ethnicities, and socioeconomic status. Over the last 10+ years I’ve worked inpatient psych, emergency rooms, community mental health and now at a pediatric clinic.
I enjoy working with women and adolescents with various mental health and psychosocial concerns. I specialize in wellness and am currently finishing studies in women’s nutrition. I have competency in understanding micronutrients, macronutrients, pregnancy/pediatrics/adolescent nutrition, and eating disorder diagnoses’ impact on the body. I find fulfillment in helping others cope with chronic illness and medical diagnoses. I believe my own testimony has led me to this season in my life.
I take an integrative approach to therapy. My toolbox includes cognitive behavioral therapy, dialectical behavior therapy, motivational interviewing, mindfulness, family systems, and nutrition for mental wellness.
I offer confidential group therapy to women ages 18+ using workbooks/CBT, ACT, and relational theory. My philosophy is that we are not alone in this thing called life and having others validate our feelings and show support, makes a huge difference in how we view the World.
