About My Clients

I think of therapy as a road trip we are on together. You are the driver and I am the navigator helping you get to your destination. In this safe space, you can share your feelings, wants, fears and experiences without the need to put on a brave face or worry about pleasing others. We will explore how you got to this place in your life, your strengths and what you would like to change. We will re-weave the pieces of your life that work well with new threads to get you where you want to be.

My Background and Approach

My approach incorporates insight-driven therapy, which means we will collaborate to examine how your past experiences may contribute to the patterns in your present relationships. We will focus on the ways these past experiences and patterns affect your life to help you interact and communicate more effectively with those around you. Ultimately, the benefit you receive from therapy is directly related to the connection you experience with your therapist, and the safety you feel with her. My office is a respite from a busy world full of competing demands. I invite you to refocus your attention inward and work with together to discover a life to love. In addition to my Virginia license, I am credentialed under PsyPact. This means that I can provide telehealth services to individuals in states who have adopted PsyPact, including DC and MD.

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

I believe that every human being has intrinsic worth, which is to be respected and honored. We live in a world where that is not the case for all people. I believe that we need to work together to change the systems that oppress, discriminate and marginalize people. We all have the right to a life free from fear. My office is a place to for you to be seen and heard. I want to know the experiences that have shaped who you are.
