As the youngest of five, there was never a dull moment in our household. Through the years I have learned to find calm in the chaos and as an adult, it is now my passion to help others find calm in their chaos, whatever that may be. I approach counseling with an empathetic, mindfulness-based approach that centers on a genuine, trusting relationship between counselor and client. I believe each individual knows themselves best; my goal is to walk with you towards the solution that brings you the most peace and provides you the space to navigate adversity without fear of judgment. Through this guidance, we will bring awareness to patterns that cause dissatisfaction and reconstruct how you experience each day. It is my goal to empower clients to lead a more fulfilling life through the use of mindful, cognitive-based techniques and a person-centered lens.
I specialize in working with adolescents and adults dealing with mood disorders, low self-esteem, relationship issues, and life transitions to name a few. I approach healing with a holistic view, which focuses on the whole person. I believe mental and physical health are interconnected and I support individuals in facilitating a healthy lifestyle, however that looks to them! In my spare time, you will find me walking dogs, cooking delicious meals, and spending time with my sisters.
I completed my undergraduate degree at James Madison University in Virginia where I received a bachelor of science in Psychology with a minor in Biology. I stayed in Virginia for my master of arts in Clinical Mental Health Counseling at Marymount University in Arlington, where I found my passion for helping adolescents and adults in a private practice setting.
I am drawn to counseling because of experiences that allow me to see through the lens of others and motivate me to help those on their journey towards wellness. Please feel free to reach out if you have any questions!
