Hello! I am a Licensed Professional Counselor (LPC) licensed in the state of Virginia and a Certified Clinical Trauma Professional (CCTP) certified by the International Association of Trauma Professionals. I hold a Graduated Certificate from Liberty University in Pastoral Counseling. I am a Christian, who has been called by God to the counseling profession as my vocation and pastoral counseling as part of my part of my Christian ministry.
My counseling experience includes working with individuals who have experienced a variety of reasons for seeking help to include but not limited to trauma, grief/loss, substance abuse, self-worth/self-esteem issues, stress management, relationship challenges, symptom management, spiritual conflicts, effective/assertive communication, depression and anxiety. Additionally, I have facilitated support and counseling groups for the geriatric population and their adult caregivers.
As a Christian counselor, I acknowledge God as the change agent using me, the counselor, as the vessel. If working within your Christian faith while holding true to biblical principles is important to your treatment, I can help by integrating evidenced based clinical mental health interventions that pass the "biblical test. " By offering Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) and Solution Focused-Brief Therapy (SFBT), I am able to walk side by side with Christians within a mutual faith-based approach to healing and wellness while adhering to biblical principles. Walking side by side means inviting an Holy Spirit filled environment for you to speak freely while I listen, ask questions, provide feedback and challenge thoughts that may reveal "stuck points", thereby empowering you to make positive change while meeting your treatment goals. I look forward to walking with you soon!
