I am a CAADC, CSAC, LPC practicing in Virginia and Florida, with over 20 years experience helping individuals through counseling and therapy. I specialize in the areas of: navigating narcissistic abuse, anxiety, depression, trauma, improving value, self-esteem/self-worth, relationships, self growth, identifying core beliefs, strengthening connections and managing life stressors. My counseling style is welcoming, warm, interactive, relaxed and non-judgmental. I believe in equality and treating everyone with respect, sensitivity, and compassion, and I don't believe in stigmatizing labels. My therapeutic style combines person centered approach, cognitive-behavioral and psychodynamic therapy. However, I will adapt and adjust my approach and style to meet the needs of each individual. It takes strength and courage to get here, and I look forward to the opportunity to walk along side you on this journey! Navigating the swells of life is hard, let's discover how to balance the ride.
