More About Me


I received my Ph.D. in Counseling Psychology with an emphasis in human sexuality from the University of Kansas in 2007. Afterward I completed my internship at Dwight D. Eisenhower Veterans Administration Medical Center in Leavenworth, Kansas, where I worked with military veterans and their families. I am a Licensed Clinical Psychologist in the Commonwealth of Virginia. I am also PSYPACT Authorized - Authority to Practice Interjurisdictional Telepsychology (APIT), which means I can see clients in several states.

Professorship & Research

Before my academic career, I participated in research initiatives funded by the Department of Labor, investigating strategies to enhance employment opportunities and workplace success for individuals with disabilities. My current research focuses on human sexuality, the interplay between behavior and public policy, and addressing conflict in close relationships.


Clinical Practice

In my private practice, based in Virginia, I help individuals and couples navigate a range of life challenges, including substance abuse, trauma, and exploring sexual identity. I utilize an integrative approach, drawing from various therapeutic modalities, particularly psychodynamic theory. This approach emphasizes the impact of early relationships on current behaviors and aims to unravel these patterns for personal growth.

Tailoring my approach to each client's unique needs, I incorporate a diverse set of techniques, such as:

  • Dialogue and Interpretation: Fostering open communication and exploring unconscious patterns.

  • Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT): Developing healthier coping mechanisms and thought processes.

  • Self-Monitoring and Visualization: Increasing awareness of personal triggers and fostering desired outcomes.

  • Creative Expression: Utilizing journaling, drawing, and reading to facilitate self-discovery.

This combination of therapeutic strategies allows me to create a safe and supportive space for individuals and couples to heal, grow, and thrive.

Business Consultation

Leveraging over 15 years of experience, I collaborate with organizations of all sizes, from small businesses to Fortune 500 companies, to optimize their operations. My expertise lies in enhancing productivity, employee satisfaction, and strategic talent acquisition. I am committed to partnering with you to identify and implement solutions that propel your organization toward peak performance.
