“We are all in the process of becoming.” -Audre Lorde

I believe that each of us, at any point in life, is in our own process of changing, growing, and becoming. For most, that experience doesn’t always come easily nor without its challenges. As a counselor, I want to meet my clients wherever they are in that process to support them in achieving their goals and improving their overall well-being.

I take a person-centered and strengths-based approach, also drawing on cognitive-behavioral techniques to explore thoughts, feelings, and behavior. I work with adolescents and adults with a special interest in working with women as they navigate issues related to identity, parenthood, and career.

I hope to create a warm, welcoming environment for all my clients to feel comfortable in bringing their whole selves to counseling. I emphasize collaboration with my clients to address various concerns, including anxiety, depression, self-esteem and body image, pregnancy and postpartum, parenting, grief and loss, and career. Together, we can work toward developing coping strategies, increasing self-awareness, and improving communication.

More About Me:

I was born and raised in Richmond, and am now living here with my own family as we raise our two children. I enjoy reading, listening to podcasts, and baking.
