Greetings! First, I want to commend you for taking this major step. I am a Licensed Professional Counselor in Virginia with 13 years of professional work experience in mental health/human services. It is my belief that we all have experiences in life that can cause us to feel angry, nervous, ashamed, hurt, disappointed, confused, unbalanced, or confused just to name a few emotions. Through my years of experience working, I have learned that experiences left unresolved have the potential for a negative impact on how a person views themselves, their life, and their support. My mission as a counselor is to “help others journey to peace,” by providing a space/environment where you can explore and process the necessary topics.
I specialize in helping clients who experience various forms of trauma, anxiety, depression, and self-esteem issues. Additionally, stress, lack of motivation, grief & loss, and relationship issues are also areas of focus in which I also have experience. I work with my clients to create an open and safe environment where thoughts and feelings can be shared without fear of judgment. I utilize an integrated approach which includes EMDR, CBT, Trauma Informed Care, Motivational Interviewing (MI), DBT skills, and Feminist Theory approaches to help my clients process their feelings/emotions in a healthy manner. I hope, that our experience will help you create new ways to cope with stressors/triggers.
I provide individual and group counseling services for individuals ages 13 years old and up. So, if you are struggling with depression, anger management, relationship problems, anxiety, trauma, or life changes; I would love to help you work through this season of your life. Taking the first step and signing up for therapy takes courage, and I look forward to helping you on this journey!
