Meet the team supporting our Richmond, Virginia office
From graduate counseling interns to licensed specialists, our Richmond team is here to support adults, children, adolescents, couples, and families.
Session rates vary based on your counselor’s level of experience as well as the length and type of session.
I support a wide range of concerns including anxiety, depression, self-esteem, and the consequences of trauma. I hold a particular interest in assisting clients through family transitions, whether it involves navigating conflict, adjusting to the addition of a child, or seeking a sense of balance. Drawing on principles from Acceptance and Commitment Therapy, Dialectical Behavior Therapy, Internal Family Systems, neuroscience, and psychodynamic theory, I aim to integrate culture and identity into our understanding of your approach to life.
My counseling approach is person-centered and integrative, with support for adults and couples. I specialize in helping individuals process and heal from traumatic or painful life events, cope with depression and anxiety, navigate relationship challenges, and live in congruence with personal values. I help couples in the areas of communication and conflict management, and I provide premarital counseling for couples seeking to build a strong foundation for marriage.
In our time together, I strive to develop your sense of strength, self-understanding, and self-compassion. My support for adults and teens includes trauma work, relationship conflict, substance misuse, emotional regulation, consensual non-monogamy, LGBTQIA+ mental health, and body image work (with a focus on body neutrality and deconstructing diet culture).
I believe that every person and system possesses a unique, creative intelligence that guides them towards healing and wholeness. As a therapist, I strive to hold a safe, warm, accepting space for my clients to experience growth and transformation. I support children, adolescents, and adults through a variety of concerns including anxiety, depression, life-transitions, emotional dysregulation, LGBTQIA+ matters, suicidal thoughts and self-harm, interpersonal and family conflict, trauma, low self-esteem, and behavioral problems.
Life is tough, and we all get knocked down once in a while. I’m here to help you achieve a happier and healthier lifestyle, drawing on your unique strengths. In our sessions together, I utilize mindfulness, motivational interviewing, and cognitive behavioral techniques. I particularly enjoy working with adolescents and young adults experiencing anxiety, struggling with life transitions, and/or trying to bring more balance into their lives.
I support adolescents and adults experiencing depression, anxiety, interpersonal/relationship conflict, LGBTQ+ issues, trauma, emotional dysregulation, low self-esteem, life transitions, and ADHD concerns. I work from a theoretical foundation of Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT) and Cognitive Behavioral Theory (CBT) with a trauma-informed approach. My goal is to provide a collaborative and trusting atmosphere and to consider the holistic needs of each person, including physical, mental, relational, and spiritual wellness.
I believe that we are not exclusively distressed by external things, but by the thoughts and beliefs we take of them. Integrating my unique style and approach to relationships, I aim to help you explore and challenge these beliefs that no longer serve you. As a trained generalist clinician, my areas of interest are primarily focused on sexuality and related issues. I help individuals connect to and embrace their sexual and gender identities, explore new levels of intimacy, and improve their overall sexual satisfaction.
As a therapist I strive to foster a dynamic, generative and trusting relationship to meet you wherever you may be in your journey. My practice is grounded in curiosity, humility and an anti-oppression framework. I am passionate about working with clients to explore their intersecting identities and past experiences as they inform the present. As a member of queer, gender non-conforming, polyamorous and BDSM/kink communities myself, I appreciate the value of working with providers who are not only clinically trained in these areas but may also share identities with their clients.
I recognize the undue mental health burden plaguing today’s women. My support for adolescent and adult women includes anxiety and depression, perinatal mental health, relationship and intimacy issues, life transitions and adjustment, and infertility and/or infant loss. I desire to create a space where you can be authentic and assured that your vulnerability will be engaged with the utmost respect.
I believe in connection. I believe in authenticity. I believe that our early childhood experiences impact our adult selves and how we relate to the world. I counsel from the belief that the relationship between client and therapist is central to growth and healing. My approach is client-centered and collaborative, and my goal is to empower clients to set goals and realistic action plans to achieve them.
