My Approach to Helping

One of my favorite quotes is: "Life is not measured by the number of breaths we take, but by the moments that take our breath away." To me, life is a journey. There will be many bumps, bruises, and obstacles along the way. That's okay. It's how you overcome those hurdles that count. Some need more assistance than others on this journey, and that's okay too. My approach is to promote healing and personal growth and development along this journey called life. I do not claim to have all of the answers. I believe that everyone is the expert of their own lives. My role is to assist you with getting out of your own way and discovering the path that you want to follow.

More Info About My Practice

I recently expanded my practice to offer telehealth services for those who may struggle with transportation, live in remote areas, or for those whose schedules limit their ability to walk into the office. These issues should not hinder you from receiving the care you seek. Please contact my office for further details regarding telehealth services.

In addition to offering psychotherapy, I now offer divorce mediation services. Divorce can be a long, complex, and stressful process. If you are in the process of seeking a divorce and would like to work towards obtaining an uncontested divorce, please feel free to contact me for additional information.

In September of 2016, I opened an additional practice location in North Chesterfield, VA. I am currently accepting appointments for this location. If you are interested in scheduling an appointment, please feel free to contact me as these appointments fill up fast. I look forward to working with you!

Importance of the Client-Therapist Alliance

The rapport between the therapist and the client should be a collaborative effort. I believe that the goal of the therapist is to be your guide to self-discovery. It is great to have goals, but you need an action plan to achieve those goals. I believe that the therapist should inspire you take the necessary steps to achieve your goals.

The Duration and Frequency of Therapy

Society always looks for the quick fix. Counseling does not work that way. Some individuals may require short-term counseling while others may require long-term counseling. What I will say is that the individual must be open to the process in order for counseling to be effective. Do not rush the process. It takes time.
