More about me
Licensing: LPC, LSATP, LPCC Years in Practice: 28 State: Virginia
I provide psychotherapy for adults working from a client-centered perspective that is integrative, collaborative, and recovery-based (i.e., incorporates client's strengths as opposed to solely focusing on negatives or pathology). This provides a safe space for clients to feel heard, understood, and respected. I am a Certified Grief Recovery Specialist and have extensive training and experience in working with clients with a trauma informed approach. I incorporate a recovery approach grounded in the 12-Steps for both addition recovery and ACOA/Al-Anon. I am also an expert in working with gay, lesbian, bisexual, and same sex attracted clients, and the unique psychological issues present in the community. I have been in practice since 1996 and I have worked with individuals in ages ranging from 18 to 85 years old. I support clients in building positive communication, fostering meaningful relationships, practicing appropriate social skills, utilizing healthy coping strategies, and to establish and maintain healthy boundaries within a culturally sensitive approach in order to generate lasting interpersonal change. I treat everyone with respect and warmth. I work to ensure that our sessions will be tailored to your needs and goals. I’m available for online therapy sessions with individuals anywhere in the states of Virginia and New Mexico. I graduated from Medical College of Virginia in 1994. I am a Licensed Professional Counselor, L.P.C. #701002755 Licensed as a Substance Abuse Treatment Provider (L.S.A.T.P.) #718000055. in the State of Virginia.

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.
