More about me

Licensing: LPC
Years in Practice: 3
State: VA

Hello! If you are facing a difficult situation or you are feeling confused, lost or stuck, moving forward may seem daunting. My approach is to focus on you and help you to organize your thoughts, and find alternate ways to approach problems. It can be easier to cope with life’s challenges when you have support. I have experience working with people from all different backgrounds who are struggling with a wide variety of challenges. Much of my experience has been working with people who are struggling with depression, anxiety, trauma, relationship issues and the challenges of parenting.

The feedback I receive from clients is that they find me to be caring and nonjudgmental, and they appreciate that I am honest and direct with them. My approach is collaborative and effective, founded in a combination of kindness and evidence-based techniques.

You can expect me to walk with you through whatever difficulties you are facing and help you learn more about yourself and the way you interact with the world. I am currently participating with clients through video sessions, and I would be happy to connect with you over the phone for a 15-minute initial consultation.

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.
