Individual Therapy:
I work with individual adults and adolescents who are ready to make positive changes in their lives. Whether you are facing anxiety, depression, low self-esteem,  perinatal/postpartum mood/anxiety issues, or stress related to an overwhelming or traumatic experience, you may benefit from a supportive space and someone to help you process what you are going through, while working to develop tools to better cope with various challenges.  The frequency and duration of therapy varies by each individual's unique needs and preferences.  

Eye Movement Desensitization & Reprocessing (EMDR):
EMDR is a modern, evidence-based therapy technique used in the treatment of a wide range of problems stemming from struggles with self-esteem, past traumatic events, or present difficulties with mood, motivation, or relationships. It has been clinically proven to accelerate the treatment of a variety of problems by tapping into a client's memory system to strengthen positive memory networks while weakening negative or traumatic ones. When something traumatic or disturbing happens, the memory can become improperly stored in the mind and nervous systems. Certain memories become wired together and can be triggered by present day situations and events, potentially causing negative emotions and dysfunction. EMDR can help to unlock improperly stored memories and reprocess them in order to improve functioning. EMDR can be especially useful and work quickly to improve fears and emotional disturbances in children.


Perinatal Mood & Anxiety Disorders Groups:
Approximately 1 in 6 women is affected by Perinatal Mood & Anxiety Disorders (PMADs).  All parents, regardless of age, culture, gender, and socioeconomic status can be affected by PMADs anytime during pregnancy or following childbirth.  I offer monthly meetings where participants can gain support, learn more about PMADs, connect with other moms, and get pointed in the right direction toward feeling like themselves again.  For more information and to register, click here .

Workshops:
I offer groups and workshops on varoius topics, including Building Self-Esteem and Mindfulness/Stress reduction.  Please contact me for information regarding upcoming events. 

Supervision:
I am registered as an approved supervisor by the Virginia Board of Counseling and provide supervision to post-graduate counseling Residents working toward licensure in the state of Virginia. I am also available to provide consultation to students and therapists looking for information regarding working in or starting up a private practice.
