Online Therapy

About Me

When Emailing, it is a Hipaa secure hub, so you will have to go through two steps. I am an LCSW and I specialize in anxiety, trauma, and depression. I do Walk and Talk therapy (out walking in a natural setting) in the Haymarket, Va. area and online (telehealth). Are you willing to work at therapy? I will give between session assignments. My work centers around you and moving towards: calming your anxiety, building strengths, and healing trauma. As we work through the EMDR process, I hope you will also allow me to help you work on: decreasing those worried thoughts, meditation, boundary setting, self-compassion, healing your mental pain, and slowing down to see where you want to go in life. I will partner with you to work on your goals.

Education & Experience

I have a BFA from George Mason University, an MSW from Louisiana State University, and have obtained my LCSW license (Licensed Clinician Social Worker). You will find me constantly training to build on my knowledge base. I have training in EMDR, ERP, CBT, Trauma, Mindfulness, and other modalities/therapeutic approaches. I do incorporate many therapeutic tools in my work, tailoring them specifically to fit your needs.
