I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker in Virginia with over 15 years of experience in behavioral health and more than 10 years of experience as a psychotherapist. I have a bachelor’s degree in psychology and a Master of Social Work degree, both from Brigham Young University. I got into behavioral health as a result of my own struggles with anxiety, depression and addiction. I believe these experiences have made me a more compassionate therapist.
My approach to therapy is a highly interactive one in which I empower clients to make decisions about their own therapy and what approaches to utilize. I rely heavily on Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Acceptance and Commitment Therapy and mindfulness approaches. I also believe that spirituality is an essential ingredient in the healing process.
I currently offer teletherapy services to individual adults, couples and families. I am also available to work with adolescents with pornography issues, although I prefer to work on those issues in conjunction with parents.
