What to Expect in a Session With Me

I believe that the relationship between the client and the therapist is essential and sufficient for growth and healing in the counseling process. While I operate out of a few specific modalities, I prefer to utilize the unique nature of each client's personality and needs to craft an approach that is relevant to them. When working with me, you can expect to not only build coping skills to manage what life is throwing at you but also gain a deeper, well-rounded understanding of the challenges you face, right down to the neurophysiological level. I'm committed to helping you achieve true long-lasting change as we work together.

My areas of focus include trauma, grief, addictions, and couples counseling. I've received training in Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) and have used this versatile approach to treat various conditions such as trauma, depression, obsessive-compulsive disorder, phobias, and more. Additionally, I am comfortable with and experienced in providing clinical counseling with a Christian perspective.

A Little About Me

I graduated from Radford University with a Bachelor of Science in Psychology in 2015. From there, I gained experience in various mental health service settings, including crisis intervention, therapeutic day treatment, intensive in-home counseling, and substance use treatment. I completed my graduate studies at Radford University, earning a Master of Science in Clinical Mental Health Counseling in 2020. I became a Licensed Professional Counselor (LPC) in November 2022. In my free time, I enjoy activities such as hunting, fishing, training in jiu-jitsu, and playing music.

In my role as the Clinical Director at RVA Counseling, I support our staff with any clinical needs that may arise. I also play a role in interviewing, hiring, and training new clinicians. If you have any questions regarding potential employment, please feel free to contact me via email at, or check out our hiring page.
