I am a licensed professional counselor in the state of Virginia. In 2001, I graduated with an M.A. in Counseling Psychology from Marymount University and have been working in the mental health field since 1996. As a Registered Play Therapist-Supervisor, I have extensive training in play therapy, art therapy and sandtray techniques and finds these alternative treatment methods to be invaluable during the therapeutic process. I provide services to children, adolescents, and their families and I believe that parent guidance is an important part of the therapeutic process. In addition, I am Level 1 certified in EMDR, with specific training in EMDR with children. I also provide supervision to clinicians wishing to become licensed professional counselors and/or registered play therapists.
