About

I provide individual therapy to adults in the DC Metro area. I have a Masters degree in Behavioral Health, Marriage and Family Therapy and am currently licensed as both a marriage and family therapist and professional counselor.
I am also certified in Eye-Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) which is a therapeutic method helpful for anxiety disorders, traumatic reactions (PTSD), recovering from past abuse and neglect, and dealing with recurring negative beliefs.

The focus of my practice is to help people find freedom from the memories and fears that cause relationship difficulty and internal distress. I choose to work in a professional office building in order to be inviting to clients who may be uncomfortable going to a church and because I saw that there was a need for counselors in the MetroCenter area of DC.

My Christian Faith and My Professional Practice

Early in my career I worked in a state funded program that provided a set salary and benefits and provided a lot of comraderie with other therapists and it was wonderful in many ways. I really had no interest in owning a business, but God changed my circumstances and closed all other doors so I had no choice but to start a business. And although I had to be pushed, private practice has proven to be a wonderful gift because as I go about my spiritual life and God provides new understanding about Him and as I learn how to accept His comfort, I often have the opportunity to share what I have learned and to comfort clients with the comfort God has provided to me.
