About Me

Do you feel like you don’t know how to handle your own life or your child? Are you ready for change? Whether you are a kid, teen, parent, or college student, life can be overwhelming. Sometimes it feels like we are one step away from failing ourselves, our friends, or our families. Like no one is really listening, or nothing will ever fix our current situation. The truth is, you won’t be stuck forever and I am here to help you heal. Parenting can feel like a constant struggle given the behavioral challenges thrown at us, the feelings of uncertainty about how to handle our kids shouting “no” at us or failing school. Imagine waking up and having a day where everything flows smoothly. Things are going great with your partner and your day feels exciting. Your child is nominated student of the month or you get an email from your teen’s teacher about their awesomeness today. Chores are being done and there’s very little arguing. Your family is talking again. Featuring 24/7 online scheduling, online therapy options for Virginia, and even session offerings on Fridays, I will make therapy easy and convenient to fit into your busy life. Clients who work with me appreciate my straightforward, compassionate, and down-to-earth approach. Check out my website and call to schedule your complimentary consultation today.
