Life can be difficult and full of challenges. Sometimes those challenges can overwhelm us and exceed our capacity to work through them on our own. My practice is focused on working with adolescents, adults and couples who need help moving past these types of life events that can keep us stuck.
I pay special attention to addressing the whole person when working through some of life’s difficulties. The mind, body, spirit and environment in which the individual lives can have a lasting impact on healing, wholeness and moving forward. Using creativity and creative approaches, I custom fit treatment to the individual and his or her specific circumstances to facilitate growth and healing.
I also work with individuals who have experienced stressful situations that involve spirituality and faith. I help you explore multiple dimensions of personhood in the context of one’s cultural identity and the factors that contribute to its development.
I foster a safe environment to promote restorative wellness, and I help to equip clients with practical tools to help them navigate healthy relationships so the life you want to pursue can be within your reach.
I hold a Master’s degree in Clinical Psychology with an Emphasis in Marriage and Family Therapy from Pepperdine University in Los Angeles, CA and am currently working towards licensure in the state of Virginia. I work under the supervision of Ed Hendrickson, LMFT.
In my work I pull from Attachment theory and Emotionally Focus Therapy (EFT) considered one of the main approach in the treatment of relationships and couples counseling.
