23 years of experience

Hi! I am a Licensed Professional Counselor for the Commonwealth of Virginia. I have been practicing for 23 years with a wide range of experience. I have worked primarily with adults diagnosed with a serious mental illness. I very much enjoy helping people overcome struggles and become the best person they can be. I am semi-retired but continue to offer counseling as a way to contribute to the health of our society.

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

In our first session I will ask about your history and goals so we can create a plan to move forward. I will want to get a sense of who you are and some of the struggles you face. I am also glad to answer your questions about my professional background and experience. I know it will take several sessions to become more comfortable with each other, and that is fine with me. MY main goal is to listen and understand you and your dreams.

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

My greatest strengths as a provider are quite a few years of professional and life experience, as well as a wide range of persons with whom I have worked. I have worked in intake, crisis intervention, case management, group therapy, substance use treatment, and individual counseling. I also have an extensive theological background, to help those with spirituality concerns.

My treatment methods

Cognitive Behavioral (CBT)

I use CBT to help with irrational thoughts that increase problems for individuals. Irrational thoughts often lead to emotional distress as well. This is a core method.

Christian Counseling

I have an extensive background in this area, and am comfortable helping people develop their faith, regardless of denomination.

Cognitive Processing (CPT)

This is my primary tool to help with trauma. I have had considerable success in completely eliminating most trauma symptoms. I also use ATRIUM in trauma treatment.

Faith based therapy

I like to help all people on their spiritual journey, respecting people's goals and struggles. I am acquainted with many world religions.

Gender-affirming therapy

I have worked with many persons in the LGBTQ+ community, and hope to help people love themselves for who they are while dealing with societal pressures.
