Licensed Professional Counselor, MA
I am a Licensed Professional Counselor with a Masters degree in Professional Counseling from Liberty University. I have been a counselor for 27 years. In the 19 years practicing as a licensed counselor in Prince William County I have served children, adolescents and families. I enjoy working with women’s issues and marriage counseling as well. My approach is primarily cognitive behavioral therapy. I am a Christ follower and willing to share Bible based techniques as clients are comfortable. I use Play therapy as appropriate. Always, the counseling process is confidential and I value the sacred space between client and therapist in a counseling session.
My husband and I planted Hope Hill church in 2010. We have raised three daughters who we consider some of our best friends. When not counseling or participating in church ministry, I love to spend time with my granddaughter and two yellow labs.
Licensed Professional Counselor, MA
I am a Licensed Professional Counselor and a Certified Substance Abuse Counselor with a Masters in Clinical Mental Health Counseling from Messiah University and have been in partnership with Hope Hill Counseling since 2018. I know how hard it can be to reach out for help for difficulties, hurts and challenges that can seem overwhelming, and I am ready to answer any questions you might have about the process. I work with adolescents, adults and couples who are struggling with anxiety, depression, low self-esteem, relationship issues, past hurts and trauma, difficulties regulating emotions and substance use disorders. I am eclectic in my approach to therapy using elements of Cognitive Behavior Therapy and Solution-Focused Therapy. I also have specialized training in couples’ therapy from the Gottman Institute and training in Dialectical Behavior Therapy. I believe that faith can be an integral element to healing and love to attend to matters of faith within the counseling process for clients who would like to do so. I see clients both virtually via telehealth and in-person and take some forms of insurance. Please contact me for details. I look forward to speaking with you.

Licensed Professional Counselor, Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist, MDiv
I have rather lengthy experience starting in California, where after college I entered the marine corps, and piloted fighter jets for 5 years. I then attended seminary, with the express goal of entering the army as a chaplain. Eighteen years later I retired from military service and completed graduate work to earn my license as a licensed professional counselor. (I told you this would be lengthy). I have been active in counseling for the last 25 years. I look forward to meeting with you when the time comes.
