I am a licensed clinical social worker (LCSW) licensed in Virginia, the District of Columbia, New Jersey and Texas working with individuals and couples to build healthy and happy futures. I received my undergraduate Bachelor’s degree from Baylor University in Psychology and Criminal Justice. I graduated with my Masters of Science in Social Work with a concentration in Family and Children from the University of Texas at Arlington. I have a strong passion for empowering women to thrive in their lives and love it. My practice focuses on building healthy happy women during every life change. I work with women both individually and with their loved ones.
I am also an adjunct professor currently teaching graduate level social work at the School of Social Work at George Mason University in Fairfax, Virginia. I love the opportunities teaching offers me to influence and create change in the young adults at these universities who seek to join this profession. Courses I have taught include Psychodynamics, Cognitive Behavioral Theory Family Therapy, Introduction to Substance Abuse, Social Work Ethics and Current Events, and Human Relationships and the Environment.
I continue to broaden and deepen my knowledge and skill base through continuing education. I have attended specialized trainings in areas which include cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT), motivational interviewing, solution oriented brief therapy, trauma, attachment, and Prepare and Enrich for couples. I am certified in both Prepare and Enrich for couples and Perinatal Mental Health from Postpartum Support International.
I work alongside you finding motivation to embrace change that empowers you to live a more satisfying and fulfilling life. My role is to provide a supportive environment to explore change and grow. I’m here to work on your behalf; to provide acceptance, respect, and understanding. I believe you are the expert in your life and already hold the answers to moving past your roadblocks.
