Meet Our Team

I am a Resident in Counseling under the supervision of Sarah Briggs, LPC, RPT-S. I graduated from William and Mary’s counselor education program in August of 2023, and I am thrilled to be continuing with the wonderful clinical team at Alexandria Place Therapy, where I completed my clinical internship. After graduating from Harvard in 2017, I spent six years as an elementary educator, working in Title I schools across the country. My classroom experience inspired me to pursue a career as a counselor to better support the diverse mental health needs of my students and their families.

I deeply believe in the healing power of a warm, understanding therapeutic relationship, and feel privileged to share in my client’s journeys as they reflect, heal, and grow. I draw from a range of techniques and utilize expressive modalities such as play therapy to empower clients to explore new ways of being, relating, and contextualizing their experiences. If you or your child is experiencing anxiety, depression, relationship challenges, trauma symptoms, or problems in school or work, I will work together with you to find a therapeutic approach that fits your individual needs.

I have had the privilege of working with a diverse range of children and families as both an educator and counselor. I take a firm stance of cultural humility and strive to understand each client’s unique perspective. I bring a sensitivity to the ways in which clients may experience various forms of systemic oppression including racism, sexism, homophobia, and much more, and strive to be a strong advocate and ally for all of my clients. As a military spouse, I am sensitive to the unique mental health needs of military and veteran families, and particularly those within the special operations community.

I believe individuals deserve the highest quality of care possible, and I actively seek new opportunities to grow in this profession. In addition to my clinical role, I am the intake coordinator at Alexandria Place Therapy and also work part-time at SafeSpot Child Advocacy Center for Fairfax County.
