Welcoming you on your journey
Congratulations on your wellness journey! I believe that increasing our wellbeing (being well with ourselves) is a step that we need not take alone. Anytime we stop and take a look at our life – where we are and where we want to be - it’s easy to go into a place of judgment. I offer a connection that meets you where you are, welcoming whatever you bring to the table with curiosity (a great antidote to judgment!) as well as a healthy dose of compassion.
I am a licensed professional counselor in Virginia. I graduated from James Madison University in 2004 and focus on working with adults. I have 16 years of experience in a community agency setting . I am also trained as an Acu-Detox Specialist through NADA and, as such, am licensed to provide a five-point ear acupuncture protocol. I have a person-centered approach and many years of experience with mindfulness and compassion-based practices. I am LGBTQIA allied. Whether you are struggling with grief, anxiety, depression, stress, interpersonal issues, self-esteem, substance use or a transition of some kind, I look forward to partnering with you.
I believe that the journey to a more fulfilling life is a holistic one that takes into account our physical wellbeing as well as emotional and mental wellness. Together we’ll take a look at where you are and where you’d like to be, and paths for getting there. I will create a place where you are valued as we explore together your immediate and long-term goals.
