I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker, licensed in Virginia with 17 years of professional work experience. I have experience in helping teens, adults and couples with stress and anxiety, relationship issues, family conflicts, & motivation, self esteem, and confidence. I work with couples to repair trust, improve communication, and strengthen their emotional intimacy with each other. In working with couples, I have found that a majority of issues within a relationship can be often be improved or solved by improving communication skills.
My approach to the therapeutic relationship is client-centered knowing that your needs are the most important and in empowering you is the key to long-term success in your story. I am also a fan a cognitive-behavior therapy, as I have found most people find it easy to start the process with the mind and then link it to how it is emotionally affecting their lives. I have extensive experience in with inner child work, which can help clients to identify old stuck patterns, which can lead to the changes they are seeking. Since I am also a registered advanced yoga teacher since 2006, I find Mindfulness a wonderful tool to help clients maintain their progress.
I strive to be unbiased and am comfortable working with people from all backgrounds. My experience is varied across many settings, as I have provided individual, family and group therapy in community mental health agencies, residential treatment facilities, county jails and private practice within a group and solo.
I believe that you are the expert of your story and that you have the strength and skills that will assist you in overcoming the things that challenge you and your relationship. It takes courage to seek out a more fulfilling and happier life and to take the first steps towards a change. I am here to support & empower you in that journey.
