My education in social work emphasized the importance of relationship and my work experience has reinforced this. I believe in the power of relationship between a therapist and a client to help people change, grow and discover more about themselves so that they can achieve happiness and health. Therapy can be like giving birth: it can be painful, messy, beautiful and, in the end, you have an amazing result. People have the ability to make changes or to re-decide anything about their life. Therapy is personal work that requires some thought when you enter into relationship with a therapist.
Attending therapy is work. I am willing to be present as you work. I trained in all 3 levels of the Gottman model of marriage therapy. I am a 7 Principles for Making Marriage Work educator. I am passionate about working with couples and individuals.
I am a licensed clinical social worker with undergraduate and graduate degrees from Virginia Commonwealth University. I have advanced training in Transactional Analysis, Redecision Therapy, Group and Family Therapy. I participate in monthly supervision and ongoing couples therapy training to ensure I provide the best in evidenced based treatment.
