Our therapists complete the Hurdle Cultural Responsiveness Training, which equips them with the skills needed to effectively address issues of race, ethnicity, class, and culture.
Hurdle uses a scientifically validated tool to measure cultural responsiveness and then provide education and coaching to improve the cultural humility of therapists. Research shows that therapists whose patients perceive them as having cultural humility deliver improved therapy outcomes.

Most people choose their career but counseling chose me! I’ve been fascinated with building relationships and sharing experiences with others since childhood. Now, I am fortunate enough to be in a field that is dedicated to helping others build relationships, share their experiences, access and address their traumas and improve their quality of life!
I have been a licensed and practicing therapist in Virginia since 2016. I have an extensive background working with various populations, including children and adolescents, geriatrics, college students, families and couples. My professional experiences include school and community-based counseling, international and local training in non-profit program development, and studying trauma and crisis intervention such as sexual abuse, risk assessment and safety planning. I utilize primarily solution-focused and person-centered approaches to build rapport and facilitate a healthy, open and effective therapeutic relationship.
