about me

I approach our work together as a shared journey. We begin by  identifying what you want to improve, change, or feel better about in  your life. You lead the way as I guide the process of inquiry.  We  travel down a path of self-discovery gaining insight about the causes of  undesired feelings and problems in your life.


Brief Bio


I received my Bachelor of Arts in sociology and Masters of Education  from The George Washington University.   After receiving my Masters in  Social Work from Virginia Commonwealth University in 2000, I was a  therapist for seven years at The Women’s Center in Vienna, Virginia. In  2007, I established my private practice in Falls Church working with  individuals and couples on a variety of issues.  I also focus on  reproductive health issues. Since 1995, I have lead groups for  first-time mothers and their families through Parent and Childhood  Education (PACE). I am also the clinical supervisor for PACE and serve  on the Board of Directors.
