Licensed Clinical Social Worker in Alexandria, VA

About My Clients

I specialize in working with adults, children, and adolescents who have experienced trauma, anxiety, grief & loss, and transitions. I genuinely want to connect with my clients and be a support and guide through the process of understanding and healing.

My Background and Approach

By developing a strong therapeutic relationship grounded in compassion and kindness, I create a safe and healing space for each client to explore insights, develop skills, process trauma, losses, and life transitions. I believe in the power of mindfulness, mind/body connection, expressive arts, and play as a tool to explore, learn, and process your experiences and reach your therapeutic goals. I am honored by the opportunity to work with you as you share, grow, and change. I have significant training in trauma treatment, including EMDR, trauma-sensitive yoga, CBT, solution-focused therapy, mindfulness & mind/body, expressive arts, sand therapy, and as a Registered Play Therapist (RPT), play therapy. It is my honor and privilege to do this work. I am truly humbled to witness the unique strengths of each of my clients in our work together.

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker in Virginia, Maryland, and DC. I have had the opportunity to serve in various clinical settings, including a community social service non-profit, a college counseling center, INOVA’s Life with Cancer program, and intensive outpatient programs. As a social worker, my values are grounded in social justice and equality for all. As I enter a therapeutic relationship, I aim to come from a place of cultural humility, allowing each client’s experience to inform our work together. I value education, empowerment, advocacy and support to build healthier families and stronger communities which uphold mental health and wellness. Selfless service is a lifelong guiding principle – I volunteer time to local schools; People Animals Love (PAL), a therapy dog organization; pro bono yoga & meditation instruction; and through Give an Hour- an organization which provides mental health services to military personnel, veterans & families and medical personnel.
