What can I expect from therapy?
Therapy is a personalized journey tailored to fit your needs. We begin the process with an assessment to give me a better idea of how to help you. I’ll ask questions about your relationship history, family of origin, children, and history of medical and mental illnesses. This gives me the information I need to provide you with the best possible services. After the assessment, each session is customized according to your needs.
Most therapy sessions are 50 minutes in length, but longer sessions may be scheduled. We will work together to help you decide how long and how frequently you want to attend therapy based on your budget and therapeutic issue. You are always welcome to stop therapy at any time.
What do you specialize in?
Marriage counseling is my passion. Whether you are highly functioning and just looking for a tune up, or on the brink of divorce, I can help you develop the skills to build a lasting connection. I have extensive training and experience with infidelity, pornography addiction, and problems with sexual intimacy as well as mixed faith marriages and faith crisis. I am also a certified Prepare/Enrich facilitator and can offer premarital counseling and marriage enrichment sessions.
If you are looking for individual therapy, I am highly experienced working with anxiety, depression, and personal trauma. I will customize my therapy style to what you need most. Whether that be a motivating coach or an empathic healer, I am here to provide you the space you need to improve your life.
Can I incorporate my faith in therapy?
Many of my clients seek me out because I am a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints. When faith is relevant to your concern, it absolutely makes sense to discuss it in therapy. However, I am not a bishop/pastor/religious leader, so I will never pressure you to make decisions to align with a particular religion. In therapy you are the director of your life – I am here to help you find what is healthy for you. If you are not religious at all, rest assured that I will never impose religion into our sessions. All of my training and most of my work experience is with secular institutions.

Hi Andrea, you are no longer in Maryland? Last year you did a presentation at the Centreville VA church building. I was hoping to contact your office and meet for a discussion for myself. Is there an office you would recommend in the VA/MD area? I live in Manassas. Thanks.
