I have a doctorate degree in marriage and family therapy from Virginia Tech and specialize in treating youth dealing with difficult issues including self-harming behaviors and other debilitating symptoms or issues. I have 12 years of experience and have provided services in many capacities including inpatient, outpatient, psychiatric triage, substance abuse treatment, and medical family therapy. I have specialized training in Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT), medical family therapy, and intensive evidence-based treatments. I am laid back and provide a down to earth yet no-nonsense approach to therapy and look forward to speaking with you!
I work with adolescents, adults, couples and families. I have experience working with anxiety and depression, self harm, emotional disturbance, chronic medical issues and intense family or partner relational problems and other issues. I am co-owner of Tandem Mental Health Associates, Inc. Check out our website at tandemmentalhealth.com!
We have worked hard to make our office a modern and hip environment. Therapy should be an EXPERIENCE, not just an appointment. Visit our Snoezelen room, a multi-sensory relaxation room that helps with anxiety, trauma, and other issues. We also have Dr. Gracie Dog, our pet therapist in training.
