Experience You Can Count On
School and Career
I received my BS in Psychology at Old Dominion University and my MSW in Clinical Social Work at Norfolk State University. I was Licensed in clinical Social Work in the state of Virginia in 2008.
I began my career with inpatient work at Virginia Beach Psychiatric Center and then moved to The Virginia Beach Recovery Center. I began my outpatient career at Atlantic Psychiatric Services, I have also practiced at Virginia Behavioral Medicine and Spectrum Psychological Services before opening my own practice in 2018.
The majority of my clientele are referrals from other patients as well as via my online presence for working with people from alternative lifestyles such as LGBT and polyamory as well as those who practice other forms of unconventional relationships.
I use a variety of modalities in my sessions from The Trauma Model, to DBT with an emphasis on mindfulness. I focus on adaptive strategies for current living as well as with an emphasis on development and attachment theories which are meaningful for those struggling with ego strength and relationship issues.
My work begins with creating safe and trusting relationships with my clients with an emphasis on the whole person and the people they share their lives with. Humor in my office is an important aspect in terms of balancing the issues that distress them with an element of ease and relaxation.
I see clientele for individual, couples, polyamorous relationships, families and group therapy.
