My Approach to Helping
I am a National Certified Counselor (NCC) and Licensed Professional Counselor (LPC) with BetterHelp. I am also a Certified Clinical Trauma Professional (CCTP) and a Certified Mental Health Integrative Medicine Provider (CMHIMP). My CMHIMP training focused on Nutrition for Mental Health. Additionally, I am an EDIT Certified I- Eating Disorder Treatment Clinician. I have a Master of Arts degree in Pastoral Clinical Mental Health Counseling from Marymount University. Marymount University is ranked as the #1 Counseling program in Virginia on universities.com. for 2021. My Bachelor of Science degree is in Psychology with a minor in Biology from Mount St. Mary’s University. I have been in the Human Services field for over 11 years.
Over the years I have demonstrated myself to be a dedicated professional with education, experience, and skills in Individual Counseling, eating disorder treatment, Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA) therapy, parent training, education counseling, career counseling, play therapy, pastoral counseling-spiritualreligious struggles, grief and loss, multicultural issues, substance abuse, depression, and anxiety. I particularly enjoy working with teens and families. I utilize a person-centered therapeutic approach while employing behavioral, cognitive-behavioral, creative arts, play, and existential approaches. I am overjoyed to be part of the BetterHelp team.
