About Me

I am passionate about helping my clients make profound changes in their lives. My greatest joy is seeing the positive results in my clients when they reach their goals and can be their authentic selves. As a therapist, I believe that one of the greatest gifts we can give ourselves is acceptance, attention, and appreciation, combined with a deep understanding of ourselves is at the heart of healing and personal change. I am an attachment-focused trauma therapist and trained in EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing Therapy). I also pull from several theoretical orientations based on the client’s individual needs, including Attachment Theory, Family Therapy, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Emotionally Focused Therapy, and Narrative Therapy. I also embrace Trauma-Informed Care, Motivational Interviewing, and Mindfulness practices in my approach to working with clients. I am a Licensed professional counselor in the State of Virginia, certified family trauma professional, and trained in EMDR therapy. I spent several years working in the community mental health field providing counseling for client issues related to complex and attachment trauma while working collaboratively with multidisciplinary teams and community partners. My greatest passion is helping clients move through various stages of life to reaching unthinkable dreams and goals. I have gained valuable information from every client that I’ve worked with and feel privileged to have been a part of their journey. I am inspired by the about of resiliency and growth that I witness daily. My clients have impacted me both professionally and personally and I’m constantly reaffirmed that I chose the right career.
