About My Clients

I am passionate about working with adults and teens to find effective ways to cope with overwhelming emotions, manage anxiety, navigate life changes, and deepen self-awareness. I particularly enjoy working with neurodivergent individuals, and am trained to provide the MIGDAS-2 as an affirming autism assessment tool.

My Background and Approach

I am a pre-licensed therapist (supervisee working towards licensure) and Certified Trauma Professional specializing in complex trauma. My style is compassionate and non-judgmental. I believe in the importance of telling and owning your story, and that you are the expert in your experience. Using a collaborative, person-centered approach, I will work with you or your teen to learn effective coping tools, deepen self-awareness, and discover your own inherent strengths. I enjoy using Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT), Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT), and Internal Family Systems (IFS) techniques. Emotions and trauma are stored in the body, so my clients also may find it helpful to weave in somatic, yoga, and mindfulness-based exercises. Every person is unique, so I will work with you to find the tools that work for *you.* I now work remotely from Florida, so I provide teletherapy to Virginia residents via a secure, HIPAA-compliant platform.

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

I am a member of the LGBTQ+ and autistic community, and am actively anti-racist. I became a social worker because I believe mental health and social justice go hand in hand. I view therapy through this intersectional lens and acknowledge the environmental factors and systems that cause individual, collective, and intergenerational stress and trauma. I strive to create a safe, compassionate, and judgment-free space.
