Much of our lives has been moved online in the past few years, not all of it by choice! I began providing online counseling in 2017, having found that it met an unmet need for many people. No extra time needed for a commute; no need to add the stress of finding an unfamiliar building, parking, etc; no need for childcare. Sit on your own sofa, with a cup of tea and your favorite blanket, and maybe even a furry friend. If your home (or office) is safe, comfortable, and private, and you have a good internet connection, online counseling may be the answer for you. Sometimes the best healing occurs in your own safe space.
Working with mothers is my passion and my specialty. The time of conception through early parenting is often the biggest transition in a person's life, and even in the best of circumstances, can be difficult. Feelings of inadequacy, anxiety, sadness, guilt, even anger and rage can occur for many people. If you are struggling with postpartum depression or postpartum anxiety, I can help.
Using a strengths based, compassionate approach, I can help you resolve symptoms related to anxiety, depression, grief, and trauma. I will follow your lead and we will move at the pace that feels most comfortable for you, while still challenging you to learn about yourself and move toward your goals.
Brainspotting is a brain-based intervention technique that, in addition to traditional talk therapy, is one of the tools I use in therapy. It is a gentle form of focused mindfulness, that can help you get to the root of your struggles and heal more quickly. Ask me more about it!

Please don't let finances hold you back from seeking help. While therapy is an investment that will pay off in positive ways for the rest of your life, I recognize that it can be financially challenging for some to afford. I will work with you to find a way to make therapy affordable. I believe that everyone deserves quality mental health care!
At this time, I accept United Healthcare, Oscar Health, Aetna, and some Anthem Virginia plans. (Other insurers will hopefuly be added in 2022!) For insurance that I do not accept, I can issue you a “superbill” to submit for reimbursement, if your plan provides out-of-network coverage. Please contact your insurance company to inquire about out of network reimbursement.
I accept all major credit cards through a secure client portal, as well as cards linked to a Health Savings Account (HSA).
Under Section 2799B-6 of the Public Health Service Act, health care providers and health care facilities are required to inform individuals who are not enrolled in a medical plan or have coverage or eligible for a Federal health care program, or not seeking to file a claim with their plan or coverage both orally and in writing of their ability, upon request or at the time of scheduling health care items and services, to receive a “Good Faith Estimate” of expected charges.
You have the right to receive a “Good Faith Estimate” explaining how much your medical care will cost
Under the law, health care providers need to give clients who don’t have insurance or who are not using insurance an estimate of the bill for medical items and services.
