19 years of experience

Hello, I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker with over 20 years of experience who is licensed in both Virginia and North Carolina. I am currently providing individual therapy with adults. I take a client centered approach to help people identify their biggest stressor and then work with them to find a way to address and alleviate that stressor. One of my favorite moments is when the client begins to realize they can do all of this on their own and they can fly through life.

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

First sessions are introductions. I'll get to know you and you can get to know me. I'll want to do a good biopsychosocialspiritual assessment as we say in social work. The more I know the better I can truly address your needs. It can be a lot of questions but is truly helpful. We'll talk about expectations of therapy and what goals you want to set for treatment.

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

While I am currently only providing individual therapy with adults, in the past I have worked with both children and adults, individuals, groups and family. I've worked in in- patients settings and out patient practices. By having this unique and varied exposure it enables me to use that knowledge to best meet your needs. I feel real compassion when working with my clients and my goal is always your best interest.

My treatment methods

Cognitive Behavioral (CBT)

While I use a combination of treatment theories to meet each individual's needs CBT can help all of us make the connections between thoughts, feelings and behaviors which can lead to a healthy insight into ourselves. I also engage other theories such as Solution Focused, Emotionally Focused, Satir Model, Cognitive Processing Therapy and DBT.
