I am an engaging, energetic & interactive therapist with over 15 years of experience. With empathy and compassion, I help you grow into a healthier human being while using a combination of therapeutic techniques in my practice.
After completing a Bachelor's Degree in Psychology from Dickinson College in Carlisle, Pennsylvania, and a Master's of Counseling Degree at Marymount University in Arlington, Virginia, I received my Board Certification in Counseling and subsequently, my Professional Counseling License (LPC).
Since 2005, I have been practicing in Falls Church, Virginia addressing issues such as trauma, grief, infertility, pregnancy/ child loss & postpartum depression* (see below), parenting concerns, sexuality (including LGBTQ+), gender identity, relationship crisis and/or infidelity, spirituality/religion deconstruction and behavioral addictions such as sex, gambling, pornography, Internet, hoarding, overeating, shopping/spending. I am an approved supervisor by the licensing board in the state of Virginia and am available to provide clinical supervision.
In 2013, I created Falls Church Wellness Center. FCWC is home to 50 exceptional wellness practitioners (Therapy, Yoga, Chiropractic, Functional Medicine, Coaching, Massage, Acupuncture and more). We also host an array of Fitness & Movement classes as well as therapeutic and artistic groups in our 500 sq ft studio.
After many trainings (including the Post-Graduate PPD Training led by Karen Kleiman), educational opportunities and hands on experience, I am recognized as an expert in PMADS (Perinatal Mood & Anxiety Disorders) and featured on DMV PMH Resource Guide & Postpartum VA.
I devote a significant portion of my practice to seeing clients who are pregnant and postpartum, as well as those who who have suffered pregnancy and child loss at any stage. I will do my best to see you within 48hrs of first contact, and if I am not able to, I can refer to someone in my practice.
