Hi! Welcome! I am an individual and family therapist who specializes in working with children, teens, and young adults struggling with their mental health, life transitions, parental divorce, and more. I have particular expertise in working with teens struggling with anxiety, depression, trauma, and disordered eating. I feel so grateful to be able to accompany my clients on their unique journeys. I am passionate about using a collaborative, change-oriented approach with clients to promote growth, and I am committed to utilizing evidence-based practices in effective and creative ways to empower my clients and facilitate change. I love incorporating the outdoors into sessions, and feel that “walking and talking” can be a powerful addition to traditional talk therapy.
I have worked with children, youth, and families my entire clinical career. I have experience working with teens with major mental illness in the day treatment setting, and children with significant emotional disabilities at a school for severe behavioral intervention.
After growing up in Charlottesville, I attended Vanderbilt University and pursued an undergraduate degree in Psychology. I later attended Boston College and earned my Masters of Social Work. I returned to Charlottesville in 2018, where I began practicing as an outpatient therapist. I became a Licensed Clinical Social Worker in June 2020. Outside the office, I enjoy walking my dog, spending time with friends, and listening to podcasts.
