More about me

Licensing: LCSW
Years in Practice: 12
State: VA

I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker (LCSW) in the state of Virginia. I earned my bachelor’s degree in Psychology from Virginia Wesleyan College (VWC) and my Master’s in Social Work (MSW) from the University of Maryland, Baltimore (UMB). I have over 10 years of experience working with children, adolescents, caregivers, and families who have experienced complex trauma, depression, anxiety, grief and loss, family and relationship issues, ADHD, behavioral issues, parenting challenges, and various other concerns. I have worked in a wide variety of settings including outpatient therapy, therapeutic day treatment, case management, crisis intervention, and intensive in-home counseling.

My approach is person-centered, strength-based, and nonjudgmental. I use various therapeutic approaches tailored to a person's needs and goals. I believe that a person is the expert of their own life, and building rapport is extremely important. I am here to support and empower you, and I truly believe that mental health is just as important as physical health. I am trained in Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) and Play Therapy. I am certified in Parent-Child Interaction Therapy (PCIT) and Trauma-Focused Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (TF-CBT).

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 $60 to $90 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.
