40 years of experience

Life is hard and sometimes we need help navigating through it. So many of us have those negative thoughts / beliefs that play out in our mind, some from early childhood trauma, others from ourselves. I can help you get rid of those negative messages and reduce or eliminate any symptoms that are a result of those messages and improve your life. I believe that a lot of us have beliefs/ thoughts that are a source of distress, does not matter if / when they started, it matters that they are distressing. There is a lot of negative out there and it is easy to focus on that and not what the positive that you are doing. A lot of people need help in seeing the positive there are doing and being validated for their feelings/actions. I meet the person where they are and will tailor the sessions with input from you to what best meets your needs. I am eclectic. I will provide education on different trauma treatment modalities to provide you the information that will help you decide the treatment modality that works best for you.

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

When we first meet you can expect me to introduce myself and ask you about you and what you want to work on. The first meeting for me is about us getting to know each other, to see if you think we would be a good fit to work on your issues. A good counseling relationship is important, if you are not comfortable with me then it will not be useful to you. Each first meeting would be different for everyone based on their own needs and figure out the path to take for the upcoming sessions. I am flexible and know that as people progress in counseling their needs change and the counseling will reflect that. It is common for you to come to counseling with one issue and mind and then that opens up other issues that need to be addressed.

What treatment methods and tools do you utilize?

I have been in this field closing in on 40 years and have worked with different populations, and different counseling issues throughout my career. I am a Licensed Professional Counselor, Licensed Substance Abuse Treatment Practitioner, and a Certified Sex Offender Treatment Specialist in the state of Virginia. I am trained in the following trauma treatment modalities: EMDR, CPT, & Atrium. I also have training in: CBT, DBT, REBT, Family Systems and others. I have experience in working with LGBT+ Cooccurring, Grief, Depression, Anxiety. and Substance Abuse, and more. When we first meet you can expect me to introduce myself and ask you about you and what you want to

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

Trauma work is one of my strengths I enjoy seeing the treatment work. I have seen a lot of success with both emdr and cpt. Family of origin issues looking at patterns and how to break negative one
