ABOUT ME

I AM A THERAPIST WHO LOVES HER JOB.

For more than 25 years, I have worked with children, teens, adults and families in clinical and educational settings.

     I believe in people. I believe we have the ability to grow, heal and change, but sometimes we get stuck or things get in the way. My job is to help bring clarity and understanding to the challenges you face, in order to help you move forward in a way that feels best to you.

     You are the expert of you, and in our work together I learn and actively listen to your story. I respect your process and where you are—no judgment. I offer different ways to proceed that are based on my 25 years of experience, understanding of research, and knowledge of the human experience. Therapy can and should be a positive experience. We explore, we challenge, but we also laugh and connect.

EXPERIENCE

Prior to private practice, I was the director of counseling at a large, exclusive independent school in an urban area. In my role as director, I conducted emotional and mood assessments and provided short-term therapy for children, teens and families around social emotional development, depression, anxiety and challenging behaviors. I created a mindfulness program for both students and staff and was a collaborative partner with other school counselors, psychologists and physicians.

     Prior to being in the school setting, I worked in clinical settings where I provided individual and family therapy to children, teens, adults and families. I also supervised the clinical practice of many counselors. 

     I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker (LCSW) in the states of Virginia, North Carolina, Louisiana and Maryland. I am also a telehealth provider in the state of Florida. 

EDUCATION
  • Master in Social Work, Boston College

  • Bachelor of Science, Georgia Southern University

INSURANCE

I am not an in-network provider with any insurance company. Payment is due at the time of visit and charged to your debit or credit card. I will provide you with a statement you can submit to your insurance company for reimbursement. Most insurance plans cover my services under their policy's out-of-network provision.

APPROACH

Finding the right therapist can be overwhelming, especially when using teletherapy. A comfortable client-therapist relationship is critical to successful treatment. Following our initial conversation and/or meeting, we will decide if I am a good fit for your needs. If I am not the right person, I will work with you to find the best therapist for you.

      If we do move forward, we will work collaboratively to determine the goals to be addressed and the best fit for the problems or challenges you are facing. I emphasize the whole person and use an integrative approach to support you as you set and meet goals. I can help by guiding you to greater understanding of your challenges and to practical ways of dealing with those challenges.

  • Coping strategies for ADHD, depression, anxiety, and ordinary and extraordinary stresses
