Who am I? 

I believe that stories matter even when they are complicated. Life can bring about different curveballs that take our stories to unexpected places. My hope for each client is for them to find healing through the power of understanding, empathy, and hope.

In my free time I enjoy going on walks with my family and puppy, traveling to new places, and trying new restaurants in town!

I earned my Masters in Clinical Mental Health Counseling from The College of William and Mary and am practicing under the supervision of Kendria Pierce, LCP.

I love working with:

Adolescents, young adults, adults, parents, and seniors.

Areas of interest:

  • Life changes or transitions 
  • Stress management 
  • Relational concerns 
  • Motherhood 
  • Women’s issues
  • Anxiety 
  • Depression

Some of my favorite approaches include:

One of my main goals in therapy is to create a path toward client-led change. It is my aim to partner with you to facilitate the change you are looking for. To help achieve these goals, I operate from a Person-Centered, Cognitive Behavior Therapy perspective. I also incorporate elements of Acceptance and Commitment Therapy and mindfulness.

Choosing to pursue counseling can be a life-changing experience and I am here to support you throughout the process. The counseling room will be built with trust, hard conversations, opportunities to heal, and a look towards the future. It is my desire for therapy to be a positive experience for all.
