Managing expectations, exercising self-care, building self-identity, developing life meaning, and accepting loss and lack of control, are fundamental to maintaining resilience and relationships. The focus of my work is supporting adults and couples in making positive changes toward greater life balance, resiliency, functioning, and acceptance, while exploring meaning and purpose.
Whatever motivation brought you here, you have courage to consider counseling for yourself and/or your relationship.  I am a Resident in Counseling, supervised by Thomas F. Lamp, LPC (VA #0701004499) at New Directions Counseling Group, LLC.  I specialize in supporting individuals and couples facing issues with:
  • Bereavement and loss
  • Depression, anxiety, and complicated grief
  • Caregiving 
  • Prenatal and postpartum mood and anxiety disorders
  • Premarriage, marriage, and remarriage issues 
  • Major life transitions
  • Law enforcement, intelligence, and military-related stressors

My overall counseling orientation is rooted in Existential theory, while my toolbox is eclectic.  Based on the needs of you as my client, I will draw upon the most effective and well-demonstrated techniques of therapies, including: Existential, Acceptance and Commitment Therapy, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, and the Gottman Couples Method.   In August 2016, I earned my Master’s degree in Pastoral Clinical Mental Health Counseling from Marymount University.  In May 2016, I received an Outstanding Scholar Award in the Pastoral Clinical Mental Health Counseling Department.  Prior to becoming a therapist, I served 10 years in the Criminal Justice field working for for three federal agencies.  I received a Bachelor of Arts degree from Brandeis University in Psychology and a Master of Arts degree in Criminal Justice Crime in Commerce from The George Washington University.
I appreciate your time and courage into finding a counselor. This is often a major step of change for you and your relationships.  I hope that by browsing through my offered services, my website, and learning more about my passion for supporting others, you will find what you are looking for. Thank you for your time.
