6 years of experience

I am a licensed clinical therapist, licensed in both Virginia and Washington DC. I have a wealth of experience helping people with issues such as anxiety, depression, trauma, anger management, men's issues, and relationship issues. I focus on meeting my clients where they are and helping them gain insight, understanding, and, most importantly, self-acceptance. I look forward to working with you!

What can clients expect to take away from sessions with you?

In our first session together, we will get to know each other and explore the specific challenges you are facing.

Explain to clients what areas you feel are your biggest strengths.

The Therapeutic Alliance between client and therapist is one of the most pivotal aspects to successful outcomes in therapy. You can feel safe with me, you can expect to laugh, and you can expect to achieve growth and self-acceptance. I strive to provide a safe and open environment, with no judgment or things feeling too professional. My goal is for you to feel like you're speaking with a friend or someone you've known for a long time.
