My Approach to Helping

Counseling provides you the opportunity to improve wellness, your perspective-taking, and meaning, and empower change for you and your relationships. I will support you or your relationships coping with depression, anxiety, postpartum mental health issues, conflict, bereavement and loss, caregiving demands, sex addictioninfidelity, and life transitions. I also provide Christian faith-based counseling if requested. My style is compassionate, direct, thoughtful, and genuine.

As a Resident in Counseling at Thriving Families Counseling, working under the supervision of Megan A. Ellis (VA #0701004749), I offer both short and long-term counseling for couples, teens, and adults. I will approach you as a caring friend and collaborator helping you uncover what you may control, how the past and barriers are impacting the present, and support you to engage in the present.

In August 2016, I earned my Pastoral Clinical Mental Health Counseling master's degree from Marymount University, in Arlington, VA. In addition to Marymount, I have sought and received additional training on intermediate-level grief therapy, couples counseling, acceptance and commitment therapy, postpartum maternal mental health, trauma-focused cognitive behavioral therapy, and other important topics.

More Info About My Practice

I have developed professional and life experience, and developing expertise in grief, caregiver, prenatal and postpartum depression and anxiety, partners of sex addicts and facing betrayal, and issues for couples facing life transitions. I served for one year as a Postpartum Support Group Volunteer Co-Facilitator and St. Mary's Catholic Church Bereavement Support Group Facilitator.

I am currently forming 90-min Support Groups for Postpartum Support, Young Spousal and Partner Loss, and Family Caregivers.

Theoretical Influences that Guide My Work

I am oriented to Existential and Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT) approaches. I accept that your existence is always evolving and that there is hope for positive change in every individual and couple. I appreciate the existential perspective on human nature because it allows for the inclusion of the soul.

I believe, as well communicated in The Serenity Prayer and the image of Mary and Martha, that healthy functioning lies within a balance among acceptance and direct action. Existential and ACT approaches allow me to respectfully approach and work with your varied faith backgrounds and interpretations, while also being able to work with Atheists.
