Hi! I believe that relationships require a willingness for each person to look deeper within themselves in order to build a fulfilling, lasting connection. Nourishing the parts of ourselves that have been hurt requires kindness and tenderness. As a therapist, I am honored to walk alongside you as we explore the issues that have brought you to counseling. I believe in the power of the stories we tell about ourselves, and I believe that these stories impact the way we relate to others. I will work with you from a position of respect and curiosity, highlighting the strengths that have brought you this far, and I will collaborate with you in examining the wounds that are in need of healing.
Drawing from an emotion-focused approach (EFT), with a focus on family systems and narrative therapy perspectives, I believe that there are evidence-based techniques that every couple or family can readily use in order to improve the quality of their relationships, and I will work with you to restructure the bonds you share with others.
I earned my M.Ed. in Clinical Mental Health Counseling with a focus on Couples, Marriage, and Family Counseling from the College of William & Mary. I am currently a resident working under supervision of Dayna Kumar, LPC. In my free time, I love to bake, practice yoga, read, and spend time with family!
