I am a Virginia based LCSW excited and passionate about helping you navigate the rough waters you have experienced. I have been in the mental health field since 2017 and have a Bachelors and Masters in Social Work. I have worked with clients in their home, community, and in the hospital setting. Wherever I go, I treat each client with the respect, dignity, and compassion they deserve

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

I have a holistic and systems approach which means that I take the environment, culture, nutrition, and relationships into account when in session and processing those emotions. I love watching my clients see themselves in new perspectives and learn new ways to manage stress, disappointment, and various life transitions and adjustments. But in the first session, I am just getting to know you. I will answer questions you may have about me as well. Therapy works through relationship and trust - and that can take a few sessions to build and grow.

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

My greatest strength is being able to look past the trauma, hurt, and pain my client has endured and see them fully as strong, courageous, and brave. I believe in my clients and I believe they are stronger than they realize. It is my goal with every session to leave you feeling more empowered, strengthened, and ready to take on anything life may throw at you.

My treatment methods

Acceptance and commitment (ACT)

ACT is a psychotherapy that utilizes mindfulness strategies and behavioral interventions to effectively reduce negative thoughts and behaviors and challenge current thinking patterns and long standing beliefs about yourself.

Daialectical Behavior (DBT)

This is a type of CBR that is used to treat more acute mental health behaviors. Provides practical and daily techniques to reduce acute behaviors.

Solution Focused Brief Treatment

This is used for clients who have a specific problem they want to work on to get back to their usual daily patterns and create new coping skills and positive behavioral changes.

Mindfulness-Based Therapy

This modality works with clients and highlights their strengths while assisting them in becoming more aware of their emotions, triggers, and thoughts to reduce autopilot responses.

Trauma Informed Care

It is imperative to approach clients with a history of trauma with compassion and empathy. I work with the client to build self-esteem and confidence as they reflect on the past and the effect it has had on their decision-making.
