More about me
Greetings! I am a Licensed Professional Counselor, a Nationally Certified Counselor, and a Board Certified Telemental Provider based in Virginia with seven years of experience working with clients directly. I also have five years experience in crisis counseling services. I was called to be counselor at a young age and thus have spent the majority of my lifespan preparing to be the best counselor I can be by equipping myself with the tools to serve people and promote mental health and wellness. My life experience has lead me to believe that culture is a big factor in how we approach our health and wellness and as such I focus on integrating an approach to counseling that focuses on the unique needs of every individual client.
I specialize in treatment of depression, anxiety and trauma. I also have extensive experience in treating adjustment issues, relationship problems, self-management and sleep disorders. In my therapeutic practice I use nonjudgmental, collaborative techniques to promote mental health and wellness. During my residency I received training and experience in common evidenced based practices including cognitive behavioral therapy, rational emotive behavioral therapy, motivational interviewing, cognitive processing therapy, exposure therapy, and structural family therapy. I also offer more creative interventions such as interventions including mindfulness based interventions, meditation, creative modalities such as art, music or movement based mediums. You may verify current licensure at https://dhp.virginiainteractive.org/lookup/index , board certification at https://www.nbcc.org/search/counselorverify, and telemental health provider credentialing at http://www.cce-global.org/Search.
I believe that the counseling process is a journey toward wellness and that my role as a counselor is to act as a coach, a teacher, a consultant or a guide in that journey. Ultimately my goal is to help you complete your wellness journey in any way that I can. I hope you choose me to be with you on your path to wellness.

About online counseling
Online counseling allows you to receive care from an online mental health practitioner via phone, video chat, or instant messaging. It is convenient for those who may have trouble getting to or would prefer not to have in-person therapy appointments. Ranging from $35 to $80 per week, online counseling is generally more affordable than in-person counseling. A study by researchers at University of California, Berkeley found that online counseling can be just as effective as face-to-face therapy while being more convenient, affordable, and accessible.
