What to Expect in a Session With Me

I sincerely believe that everyone is the expert on their own life and experience. Because of this, I prefer client-led or self-identified areas for work as a strong start for a counseling relationship. Alternatively, together, we can identify areas that may weigh heavy on the heart or the mind and then discuss how the client would feel most comfortable moving forward to address or absolve these concerns. My education has provided me with the foundational principles of Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Motivational Interviewing (MI), Dialectical Based Therapy (DBT), and Psychodynamic Therapy. Specifically, I am formally trained in Motivational Interviewing (MI) which can be used to encourage change and empower individuals by recognizing their own strengths that they have presented throughout their life. As a provider, and as a person, I maintain that everyone deserves to be able to be wholly and unabashedly themselves and it is my commitment to provide that space and foster that relationship of being both seen and heard fully. 

A Little About Me

I grew up all up and down the Shenandoah Valley and have now found myself planted in Richmond, VA after moving here in 2020. I am a lifelong extrovert that has learned I have more introvert tendencies than I could have imagined. In my free time, I love to read books, watch movies, and snuggle up with my animals, but I can also be found grabbing coffee with a friend or going on adventures outdoors around the water. I don’t necessarily consider myself to be a foodie—I could never get the instagram pictures right—but I do love to try new things. I use my free time as a means of self care, working to find the moments that help to refill my metaphorical cup. One of my favorite things to do with others is understand the things in their life that they consider to be “cup filling” moments!
