ABOUT

I spent years in the client seat of a therapy office after experiencing several personal crises, so I understand the fear, vulnerability, and hard work it takes to change one’s life. After 15 years in the design world, I decided to return to school and pursue a Masters in Clinical Mental Health Counseling. Now, as a therapist, my deepest desire is to create a warm and accepting space where clients can feel seen and known, and heal. I believe everyone has their own personal needs and unique story. My hope is to remain curious with you, to be a witness and support as you express, explore, and discover who you are and who you want to be. ​

I work with adults. I believe our past informs our present and can guide us to a different future, if we choose it. I work from a holistic, person-centered and relational psychodynamic therapeutic approach with emphasis on family of origin, personal beliefs, mind-body connection, and attachment styles.

 

I specialize in working with depression and anxiety, grief and loss, trauma, relationship issues, infertility, and more.

As a Resident in Counseling (VA #0704013717) working toward licensure, I am supervised by and practice under Dr. Tracy Bushkoff, LPC (VA #0701001581).

________

I currently call Northern Virginia home, but I have lived all over the country, moving frequently throughout my childhood. I enjoy quality time with friends, cooking, being active, and holistic living, and I am kind of amazing at choosing the appropriate container for leftovers.
