Additional Information

Profession:

 Licensed Professional Counselor

Practice Description:

I have worked as a counselor for ten years. For the first five years of my career I
worked as a family counselor for New Horizons Family Counseling Center on the
campus of William and Mary. The past five years I have been at Williamsburg Place.
Initially I worked in the Substance Abuse Treatment Center and, subsequently,
in the Psychiatric Pavilion. At WCFT I treat clients with various psychological
disorders, e.g., those who are traumatized, depressed, anxious or abusing substances.
I enjoy helping clients enhance their life skills, including individual, group and
family sessions. In addition to substance abuse issues I have treated clients for
depression, as well as educated clients on life skills including stress management,
trauma, anxiety, self care, and relationship skills. I strive to help clients become
empowered through self discovery and skill development. As a USAF veteran I am
especially interested in helping returning service members heal from the many
wounds of war, and continue to gain additional knowledge and therapies to serve
this population.
