ABOUT

What would it be like if you woke up tomorrow and realized that you can accomplish your goals? As a therapist, I love to help people imagine that answer. It is my belief that we are all capable of growing, achieving, and realizing our potential. I am an integrative therapist who specializes in treatment for chronic illnesses, anxiety, and stress management. I specialize in using talk therapy to identify and remove obstacles (such as anxiety, stress, anger, and depression) that can prevent you from accomplishing your goals.

I provide individual, couples, and family counseling services. I also provide LCSW supervision for social workers seeking their license.

   

I graduated with my MSW from Virginia Commonwealth University and with my BA in English Literature from Muhlenberg College.

 

I live in Richmond, Virginia with my wife, son, and two dogs. I enjoy hiking, traveling, and drinking coffee. 

WHY AM I HERE?

I am here because...

I am having a hard time emotionally. I often feel angry, depressed, or helpless. I want to feel better.

I am having a tough time communicating my needs to family members and friends. 

 

I want to feel better about my life.

WE CAN HELP

I specialize in using talk therapy to identify and remove obstacles (such as anxiety, stress, anger, and depression) that can prevent you from accomplishing your goals.

I work with you to create a personalized treatment plan to set and accomplish goals. We work together to improve outcomes in all settings. 

CLINICAL EXPERIENCE

I have experience working as a clinician in the mental health field for almost ten years. Before working in private practice, I spent time working in a variety of different clinical fields such as residential treatment, substance abuse counseling, and working with at-risk children and parents in schools. I have been afforded the opportunity to teach clients strategies to cope with difficult emotions, to help clients discover and utilize their inner strength, and to grow their self-esteem and sense of competence.
