National Certified Counselor
Resident In Counseling

I firmly believe an atmosphere of warmth and authenticity helps lead to a constructive, yet positive growth outcome for all individuals. Using a treatment approach geared to address a person’s individual needs, I meet an individual where they are at and help the individual progress towards positive life change.

Children and Adolescents: I have a depth of experience, which includes working at outpatient and day treatment levels of care. I work with children and teens experiencing emotional and/or behavioral disturbances, which include but are not limited to ADHD, depression, anxiety, anger management, trauma, and substance use/abuse. My passion is to work with individuals who have difficulties appropriately expressing their thoughts, feelings, and behaviors resulting in issues arising within the school, home, or other settings. I want to help children and their families work together to address these problems and find a resolution that adequately fits the needs of both the child and the family.

Adults: Depression, anxiety, life transitions, career concerns, and parenting issues can impact an individual’s ability to meet their responsibilities both personally and professionally. I seek to empower adults with the tools needed to face their struggles in a healthy manner. Using a person-centered foundation to meet an adult where they are at helps build a strong therapeutic relationship allowing me to work with clients to build insight and awareness to one’s struggles and create healthy solutions.

I currently am registered with the state of Virginia as a Resident in Counseling accruing hours towards licensure; and I am supervised by Katie Clark, LPC. In addition to working at Sunstone Counseling, I maintain a full-time position with Fairfax County Government working with youth and families in Chantilly, VA. I am currently a Nationally Certified Counselor (NCC). I received my Master’s in Counseling from Virginia Tech, where I attended the Counselor Education program in Falls Church, VA at the satellite campus. Prior to this, I completed my Bachelor’s of Science in Psychology and Sociology from Virginia Tech in Blacksburg, VA.
