I'm so glad you're here! Make yourself comfortable.

Are you feeling overwhelmed by life's transitions and stressors? Do you feel like you could benefit from some guidance and support? If so, I'd love to work with you! As a licensed therapist with years of experience, I specialize in helping individuals navigate life's challenges and transitions. Whether you're struggling with family dynamics, feeling stuck between your children and aging parents, or looking for support as a veteran, I can help. Having worked at the Veterans Health Administration for 20+ years, I have a unique understanding of complex health systems, the individuals they serve, and the medical professionals who work there! I offer in-person sessions in Richmond, Virginia and virtual sessions Statewide in Virginia and North Carolina, giving you the flexibility to choose what works best for your schedule and lifestyle. Together, we can explore your thoughts, feelings, and behaviors, and develop strategies to help you cope with the challenges you're facing. My approach is empathetic, non-judgmental, and tailored to your specific needs and goals. Over the past two decades, I have had the privilege of working with adults from a diverse age range. From young adults in their early twenties, to seniors in their late nineties, I have gained invaluable experience and insights into the unique needs and challenges faced by individuals at different stages of life. Throughout my career, I have had the opportunity to work with people from all walks of life, with a wide variety of backgrounds, experiences, and personalities. This has allowed me to develop a deep understanding of the complexities of human behavior, as well as the many factors that can influence an individual's thoughts, feelings, and actions. Over time, I have come to appreciate the importance of empathy, patience, and effective communication in working with individuals from different age groups. I have learned that everyone has their own story to tell, and that by taking the time to listen and understand each person's unique needs and concerns, we can build stronger, more meaningful relationships. At this time, I do not accept insurance but can offer a Superbill if necessary. Contact me at for a helpful worksheet to contact your insurance company. I am a native North Carolinian (go Duke!) and currently reside in Henrico, Virginia with my husband, Bernard, and 2 children. I enjoy hiking, camping, sewing, and traveling to the mountains or just traveling in general.
