Welcome! I am a Licensed Professional Counselor with over 18 years of experience in psychotherapy, working with adolescents, individuals, families, and groups. I truly enjoy partnering with clients to increase self-awareness, identify and release restrictive patterns, foster empowerment, and encourage positive change.
I believe that change is possible for everyone, and it begins with a safe and accepting environment. My approach to therapy is warm, direct, non-threatening and empowering, with a focus on working with my clients to identify the patterns and obstacles that prevent them from reaching their goals. Confusion, frustration, anxiety and anger often stem from hidden influences that hamper one's ability to achieve his or her desired quality of life. Many situations can be improved by expanding one's personal insight and awareness. By using Mindfulness-Based Cognitive Therapy, Acceptance and Commitment Therapy, and techniques from other therapeutic approaches, I strive to help clients identify real options for each unique situation, based on established therapeutic goals.
Most insurance plans are accepted, however, arrangements for private pay can be made. I look forward to meeting you and serving you at Southview. If you would like to schedule an appointment or if you have any questions, feel free to contact me at 703-860-8800 . I can also be reached via email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
