I have immediate openings for tele-therapy (video or phone sessions) and would be honored to support you during this time. During this COVID-19 pandemic, I am ONLY offering tele-counseling services to Virginia State residents via Doxy.me, Zoom Meeting, and phone.
Using a meaning-centered approach, I will help you process loss and trauma, reduce symptoms, while improving self-worth and coping. Grief and Trauma Counseling, Maternal Mental Health Training, EMDR Trauma Therapy, and Pastoral Counseling are tools that equip me to effectively help you overcome life’s challenges and build meaning.
I specialize in working with adults facing grief and trauma, caregivers, prenatal and postpartum depression and anxiety, first responders, and premarital, marriage, and remarriage counseling. I offer Christian Counseling services for Catholic, Orthodox, and Protestant clients coping with grief, depression, and anxiety upon request. I also offer Christian Enrichment and Gottman Couples Method program for Christian premarital, and remarried couples upon request.
The first and most difficult step is to admit that your current attempts to cope and manage your issues aren’t working. The next step is to take action. If you feel stuck in life, know that you don't have to go it alone. Call now for your free 15 minute phone consultation, and we can schedule your first appointment.
HOW I HELP MY CLIENTS CREATE MORE MEANING
UNCOVER THE WHY AND HOW
You can’t know where you’re going and why you are feeling grief, shame, anger, despair, or overwhelmed if you don’t know where you’ve been and what unhealthy messages you have internalized. To conquer shame, depression, anxiety, anger, grief, and trauma, it's essential to look back at the root causes, what triggers your current unhealthy patterns, and how the situation got to this point without staying stuck in the past indefinitely.
Life brings with it suffering and the reality that there is not much we can ultimately control other than how we respond to suffering. I help my clients build coping skills and acceptance. Improving acceptance of suffering and self is essential to sustained recovery from depression, grief, anxiety, and tragedy.
BUILDING A MEANINGFUL LIFE
Psychiatrist Viktor Frankl emphasized the need to create and find meaning in life, and that there is even a meaning in suffering. He explained that when there is a void of meaning in life that the empty space acts as a vacuum and will become filled with anxiety, depression, and addiction. Are you living a life that has little meaning? Have you updated and considered what commitments motivate you and align to your values? Are you self-medicating or avoiding? A key component to overcoming grief, depression, shame, addiction, and anxiety is filling up that space with reasons to get up in the morning, getting motivated, and crowding out ineffective behavior and negative and anxious self-talk.
I offer a sliding scale of rates between $60 to $130 for individuals and couples standard and intake session. I offer my reduced rates for clients facing financial constraints. Please contact me directly for more information.
