My sensitive and engaging, direct and practical, style is reported by my clients as one of their attractions to working with me. I work with Children, Adolescents and Adults, addressing ADHD, depression and anxiety, divorce, loss and medical trauma. . I would be honored with your trust in me.
Personal set-backs and conflictual relationships are common problems that we all can face at some point in our lives. My approach is respectful and compassionate. I have doctoral level clinical training, research experience, several publications, and am adjunct faculty at Virginia Tech.
I provide professional, results-oriented counseling with a focus on Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), a method that more quickly and effectively brings about positive changes. As a Marriage and Family Therapist, I also work extensively with couples and family members on relationship issues.
"Everyday is about becoming" I believe that going through a process of self-reflection and change is powerful and brave. It helps us identify how we are getting in our own way in having a better quality of life. In responsibility their is power. Everyone wants to feel content and satisfied with themselves and the world they build around them but we struggle to achieve this goal because we have been hurt, disappointed, betrayed, or doubt ourselves. Find your personal power and change your world. I am with you.

As a licensed clinical psychologist for 20+ years, I understand that the relationship and "fit" between client and therapist is paramount. I work hard to establish and maintain a relationship based on mutual trust and honesty. We can work together to help you feel less stuck, and more in control.
I believe that in order for psychotherapy to be effective, it is the relationship between the therapist and the client that provides room for growth and change. Therapy is such a deeply personal process and I'd be happy to talk with you to see if we would be a good fit.
I am a Licensed Professional Counselor, a Certified Traumatologist and a Nationally Certified Counselor who specializes in mood and anxiety disorders, post-traumatic stress disorder, multicultural counseling, relationship issues and problems associated with emotional and physical abuse.

I love working with those who want to improve their lives. It is my goal to make therapy as relaxing as possible while addressing the key issues and concerns which need work. Each of our sessions will center on the mission we set out to accomplish, and while time and patience are essential I know that through treatment you will find a higher wellbeing.
Relationships are tough. Sometimes even hurtful and confusing. Maybe you're wondering how things got to where they are. Maybe you're often feeling alienated, misunderstood, silenced, frustrated, helpless, anxious, worried, sad. You've tried arguing and suffering in silence. You've tried to confront and to let it go. Still you feel lost. This may describe one significant relationship or many. The disconnection is so familiar it feels normal. There is hope. We can create a new normal. We can use examples from your life to teach you important lessons about what is working and what isn't. We can dig into your relationship patterns, find out why they exist, and make meaningful changes where they're needed. If you're ready to start this journey (on your own or with your important other) of self and relationship exploration, call me TODAY! We will work together to get unstuck, to communicate boldly and honestly, to hear and be heard. You can have the relationship you've always wanted!
My therapy style is compassionate and empathic with a sense of humor. I enjoy discovering "what works" for my clients, and providing a steady, healing presence during hard times.

Are you ready to rediscover living without the burden of emotional distress? I am an experienced, warm, and compassionate clinical social worker with years of experience treating clients with a variety of mental health conditions. I received my social work degree at Fordham University in New York City. My first year of internship was in the public school system working with at-risk teens. During my second year, I worked with couples experiencing infertility and seeking adoption. I did my post-masters training in Couples and Family therapy at Ackerman Institute for the Family in New York City. I am a mother and step-mother to nine children and four dogs.
Are you feeling stressed or overwhelmed? Are you struggling with symptoms of anxiety or depression? Or having relationship issues? I am here to help. I am passionate about helping my clients overcome their difficulties, learn to be compassionate to themselves and rediscover their courage.
Everyone struggles to find the potential within themselves, and sometimes our stories and experience seem to tell us no. I have been helping people bring the yes back into their lives since 2007. I bring expertise and compassion to every counselling session, helping you bring your life to life.
My approach to counseling is that each individual has the potential within them to accomplish anything. My job is to help you realize that potential and to make peace with the issues that you face. Notice I never said anything about “getting over” what you have going on, because I believe that there are some things that make that impossible. But, I believe that if you are willing to work with me to achieve your goals, you can achieve the recovery you truly want My journey to the present day has been unconventional to say the least. I’ve worked in the mental health field since graduating with my Master’s Degree in 2007. I’ve worked with many different populations in many different settings. Most recently I have been working with clients who desired to end their lives, or who were too sick to go about their daily lives. I’ve also supervised others, taught at a college level, and made presentations to other professionals. In the real world, I’ve worked in the medical field, customer service, and I’ve owned my own business. I believe this varied experience allows me to be more emphatic as well as take a more common sense approach to treatment. I invite you to take a step toward something difficult and do something that is good for you. You always have the opportunity to go back to the way things were; that isn’t challenging in the least.
