I am a Licensed Professional Counselor and board approved LPC Supervisor in the Commonwealth of Virginia and previously maintained professional licensure in Maryland and Colorado. Additionally, I am a board approved clinical supervisor in the state of Maryland. I graduated from the University of Denver in 2009 with a degree in Forensic Psychology, and I obtained my undergraduate degree in Psychology from Mount St. Mary’s University in 2007.
Prior to launching Solution-Focused Therapy Services, I provided therapeutic services in a variety of settings including non-profit community mental health centers and correctional facilities. I am experienced with providing therapeutic services to children, adolescents, families, and adults presenting with a wide range of mental health and behavioral disorders.
I utilize a strength-based, CBT approach geared toward helping individuals and families build on the positive attributes they already possess in order to facilitate change.
Additionally, I specialize in maternal and women's mental health (including prenatal and postpartum mental health), helping parents and children improve dynamics within the home through emphasis on parenting skills, assisting children and adolescents address mental health symptoms, trauma, LGBTQ concerns, and military family challenges.
