Holding Hands

Coming to counseling requires significant courage and vulnerability.   I offer an integrated therapeutic approach that incorporates a variety of counseling techniques tailored to your needs.  I seek to provide a mindful and compassionate presence that creates a safe space for you to share your experience and find new ways to grow and heal. 

I have extensive training in cognitive-behavioral therapy, existential psychotherapy, family systems, Jungian sand-tray and other expressive therapies.  I practice trauma-informed care and am certified in Eye Movement Desensitization Reprocessing (EMDR). Currently, I am training to become an Intuitive Eating Counselor. I enjoy working with folks struggling with:

 

  • Anxiety & Depression

  • Relationship Issues

  • Codependency

  • Compulsive or Emotional Eating

  • Body Image Issues

  • Self-esteem

  • Grief

  • Trauma

  • Life Transitions

  • Parenting Concerns

Eye Movement Desensitization Reprocessing (EMDR) is a psychotherapy that enables people to heal from the symptoms and emotional distress that are the result of disturbing life experiences.  Repeated studies show that by using EMDR therapy people can experience the benefits of psychotherapy that once took years to make a difference.  It is widely assumed that severe emotional pain requires a long time to heal.  EMDR therapy shows that the mind can in fact heal from overwhelming and traumatic life experiences much as the body recovers from physical stress and trauma.  EMDR therapy demonstrates that the brain’s information processing system naturally moves toward mental health.  If the system is locked or imbalanced by the impact of a disturbing event, the emotional wound festers and can cause intense suffering.  Once the block is removed, healing resumes.  Using the detailed protocols and procedures learned in EMDR certification training, clinicians help clients activate their natural healing processes.

Providing Clinical Supervision to counselors and counseling residents is a privilege and a passion of mine.  I have been a Certified Clinical Supervisor in Virginia since 2013.  I have provided licensure supervision for several counseling residents utilizing individual, group, and observational supervision, most recently as the Clinical Director at an addiction treatment center.  Prior to training to become a Clinical Supervisor in Virginia, I completed doctoral-level coursework in Clinical Supervision in the Counseling Psychology Department at West Virginia University.  Although I pull from various models, I consider myself a person-centered supervisor who fosters the supervisor/supervisee relationship to support counselor development.
