More about me

Licensing: MS, EdS, LPC
Years in Practice: 3
State: VA

I have experience helping individuals from varied cultural and socio-economic backgrounds struggling with anxiety, depression, self-esteem, trauma, substance abuse, and social skills difficulties.

I use a client-centered approach with a variety of modalities, including CBT, motivational interviewing, and psychodynamic therapy, to provide insight into how environmental, mental/emotional, and health-related factors can influence an individual’s thoughts, feelings, and behaviors.

It can be difficult to reach out for help. As such, I seek to create a confidential, inviting, and nonjudgmental setting for you to feel comfortable in as we work collaboratively to develop greater insight, understanding, and coping skills; focus on your experiences, struggles, and needs; and let go of your stressors.

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.
