More about me
Years in Practice: 5
Over the past five years I've enjoyed working with adolescents and young adults as a full-time school social worker and soccer coach. Given the transient and dense population of the Northern Virginia community, our school aged population puts immense pressure on themselves to succeed socially, academically, and athletically. Many students that I've worked with in the school and private practice setting are dealing with depression, anxiety, stress, trauma, relationship issues, or something else.
While I typically incorporate Cognitive Behavioral Theory, Psychodynamic Theory, and mindfulness into my sessions, the most important part of counseling is the therapeutic relationship between a therapist and their client. Regardless of the modality I'm using, everything I do in the session involves the client and seeks to build on their innate strengths.
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.
