Licensed Clinical Social Worker in Alexandria, VA


About My Clients

Have you encountered one or more life events that have caused you to feel stuck in the same routine? You believe you are too far along one path to make any changes. The toll of the daily grind sucks up both your time and energy. Relationships, self-care, and personal goals are lost in the process. Are you having difficulty managing multiple life demands, stress, and need help with navigating challenging situations? Resilience Coaching would be perfecting for you.

My Background and Approach

My role, as your coach, is not to help you recreate the life you used to have. Instead, I will help you build  self-confidence to allow you to hear your inner voice. You will build their capacity to remain flexible in thought, behaviors, and emotions when stressed. I will help you move forward with enough resources to deal with life and work challenges. During uncertain times, I will assist you with changing your focus from what is not working to what is. Life’s challenges aren’t meant to break us apart, but to build the strongest parts of ourselves.  For over 17 years, I have worked in the human service field. Throughout my tenure, I have been privileged to advocate for the disenfranchised by facilitating substance abuse education classes and parenting groups, providing outpatient therapy, mental health services in the school setting, and more.

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

Rhaea (pronounced Ray-a) is my first name. In elementary school, my peers struggled with pronouncing my name. My kindergarten gym teacher noticed how frustrated I would become and taught me a trick. When I introduce myself, I should say "Hello my name is Rhaea, pronounced like A Ray-a Hope or A Ray-A Sunshine" and thirty plus years later, I still use it. ​ Both phrases encompass who I am. In most cases, I am able to give people tools and strategies to navigate through some of the toughest situations. Also, when people first meet me they tend to say "there is something about you; I just can't figure out what it is" but I have a sense that they are referring to the light that shines within me. My mission is to help my clients notice the light that shines within them. My ultimate goal, is to give them HOPE, when they are on the brink of giving up.
