Oh hey! This browsing for a child/teen therapist thing is exhausting, isn't it? Something tells me your kid's B.S. meter is more sensitive than your average bear...so a blank-slate, nice-looking therapist with pictures of rocks and lotuses might not cut it, no matter how many results-driven promises they make. You know you need someone who can balance a playful spirit with long-term improvements that will carry your quirky kid into adulthood. For better or for worse, this process is a lot like gardening...the hard way. The kind where you plant seeds, knowing that literal years will pass before you see that plant bear fruit. Fortunately, I love getting my hands in some dirt. Can't wait to join your family in this wild ride! You can learn more about my work and my approach by visiting my website.

Hypnotherapist, Hypnotherapist certified by International Medical and Dental Hypnotherapy Association
Working wit with me, you will be able to make the changes you want in a relatively short amount of time. This is NOT "talk therapy." We do talk, but MOST of the transformation is on the unconscious level. Unlike psychotherapy, which goes on week after week for months or even years, most of my clients find resolution in 3 or 4 90-minute sessions (though some issues, like weight loss, require longer-term follow up). My methods are highly effective and many of my clients are amazed at the positive changes in themselves in such a short time.

Licensed Clinical Social Worker, LMSW
Are you experiencing difficulty with life adjustments or social connectedness? I am passionate about working with those who are struggling with eating disorders, trauma, anxiety, grief, relational and social difficulties, and members of the LQBTQIA+ community. I believe that the foundation of developing an authentic self is understanding the body's response to life experiences and understanding how it functions under stress. Together, we will create a safe, supportive, and trauma-aware space to begin healing. In settings such as partial hospitalization, intensive outpatient, and outpatient, I have worked with adults and teens experiencing binge eating, purging, anorexia, orthorexia, excessive exercise, OSFED, ARFID, and body image issues. Throughout sessions, I complete evaluations to determine whether you or a loved one requires more intensive/supportive eating disorder treatment. In addition, I complete bariatric evaluations that are required for the surgical process. This service helps determine readiness, address any concerns about underlying eating disorder behavior, provide pre/post therapeutic support, and explore alternatives to surgery. I am trained in Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT) to assist patient's needs and use collaborative methodologies to facilitate supportive communication, reconnection, problem solving, and positive decision-making with teens, adults, and families. I hope to hear from you and look forward to jump starting your mental health journey.

Licensed Professional Counselor, LGPC
I believe everyone in life has a unique path they follow. I provide a safe space to help you navigate the ebbs and flows of everyday you may encounter. I provide individual, couples, and family therapy for those experiencing anxiety, depression, intergenerational trauma, low self-esteem, and BIPOC-specific issues such as difficulty maneuvering through systematic oppression. I tailor each of my sessions to the individual and their needs. I greatly value a person-centered approach toward therapy where a compassionate therapeutic relationship is most important. Through a collaborative, creative style we will approach sessions as a mindful opportunity to model ideal well-being and interpersonal practices so that you can feel confident in who you are. Techniques I specialize in are Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT), Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Internal Family Systems (IFS), and Buddhist Psychology. I would be honored to offer you the judgment-free space you need to explore what it is like to be seen, heard, and begin your therapy journey with you.

In my therapeutic approach, I incorporate Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT), having completed the foundational training through the Linehan Institute and contributing to CCG's comprehensive DBT team.

As a Resident in Counseling in Virginia and a Licensed Graduate Professional Counselor (LGPC) in Maryland, my priority is to establish a secure and collaborative environment, drawing on my Master's degree in Clinical Mental Health Counseling from Marymount University. Being a National Certified Counselor (NCC) and a member of the American Counseling Association (ACA) and Chi Sigma Iota, I bring a wealth of expertise to my practice. My professional journey includes serving diverse populations at a group practice, where I supported first responders, medical staff, military personnel/veterans, international humanitarian workers, law enforcement, and journalists. I've worked with individuals facing fertility and prepartum/postpartum challenges and implemented social-emotional learning for refugee children in Germany. Beyond my counseling role, I find joy in outdoor activities, travel, culinary exploration, and quality time with my husband.
3 Years Experience
Licensed Professional Counselor, LPCC, LCPC, PPS
I most often work with those who tend to be perfectionistic, anxious, creative, empathetic people-pleasing people who may identify with being an HSP or Empath, or identify with having a more finely-tuned nervous system than the average person. They tend to be kind, concerned about the wellbeing of others, often more than themselves. Therapy with me is unique to each client, based on many factors but especially what you let me know is your focus, sensitivity, temperament, what you share has or has not worked before in therapy, and the goals you have in life for yourself, and what we discover together in therapy. My natural style as a therapist is caring, warm and gently direct. Please message me to schedule a free consultation.
