My Approach to Helping
***Currently offering Distance and online counseling and accepting new clients*** I'm a Licensed Professional Counselor currently working with adolescents, families, and adults of all ages in the Greater Richmond area. My hope is to be the best possible support to people hoping to live a fuller life and make healthy, positive changes.
For the past 10 years I've worked in multiple clinical environments including outpatient and in-home settings. My experiences have included treating younger and older adults, adolescents struggling with big emotions, and families confronting difficult changes. Most of my clients are seeking assistance when they are overwhelmed by periods of depression, worry or anxiety, or want change unhelpful behavior patterns. Additionally, I specialize in helping men and women who have survived traumatic experiences. I also help clients address issues related to managing intense emotions, developing a reasonable work-life balance, generating better intimacy and healthy sexuality as well as making decisions in accordance with their personal values.
More Info About My Practice
During therapy sessions, I offer clients a safe, welcoming space to practice healthy habits, implement solutions to overcome problems, or discuss difficult or painful subjects. When working with teens or families, I'll occasionally incorporate art, humor, into my therapy sessions. Whether I'm offering 1-on-1 support with a client, leading a group, or meeting with a family, I've always believed in 'listening first' and helping people increase the skills they already have (but may not be aware of) in order to adopt a healthier and more fulfilling lifestyle.
