Have you ever just wanted to sit down to off-load something that’s been eating away at you for too long? Recognizing the need for help and seeking professional therapy is a sign of strength and determination to live a productive and meaningful life. As a part of living our lives, we may encounter situations that are difficult to manage alone. Some seek support due to a situational crisis. Others seek treatment as a necessary aspect of managing a medical disorder, commonly known as a mental illness. But whatever the reason, it is a well known fact that therapy helps. Let’s figure it out together.
I have 13 years of experience in private practice and 18 years of experience total in helping my clients to become stronger at the broken places by treating trauma related disorders, addiction, depression, anxiety, relational struggles, life transitions, and personality differences. I use a variety of techniques that include a combination of behavioral approaches such as SFT, DBT, CBT or ACT; I have advanced training in EMDR and trauma specific interventions. I also incorporate interpersonal & psychodynamic theories into my therapy work.
I believe our feelings, motives, and decisions are actually powerfully influenced by our past experiences, and those memories are stored in us. By exploring these memories we can discover all sorts of contributors to health psychology concerns.
My clients include adult individuals and heterosexual & same-sex couples. I am also a board approved clinical supervisor in counseling. I work with LGPC candidates and other professionals seeking clinical oversight.

I am a graduate of the University of Maryland School of Social Work and hold an LCSW-C as well as am a board-certified supervisor.

Often times, we are blinded by the fog in the relationships and life experiences we encounter.
Often times, we are blinded by the fog in the relationships and life experiences we encounter. As humans, we often experience everyday stressors such as life transitions, employment, work relationships, family problems, grieving losses, parenting, depression, and health problems.

I utilize a systemic approach in treatment, which considers the exploration of family of origin, psycho-social, and individual factors that impact my client’s lives. In addition, I utilize a variety of techniques, depending on the unique needs of my client. I strongly believe in fostering hope, growth, and empowerment within my clients in order to support their therapeutic goals.

You feel stuck. You may often find yourself feeling sad, angry, or irritable.
You feel stuck. You may often find yourself feeling sad, angry, or irritable. Perhaps you aren’t sure what you’re feeling, but you know that something is wrong in your life. Maybe you’re not the person that you thought you’d become. Possibly fear and anxiety are holding you back. These feelings could be new, or so old that you cannot remember feeling differently. Regardless of how you got here, you are ready for change.
I will help you to reconnect with and build upon the parts of you that feel most real – strong, confident, and adaptive. My therapeutic approach is tailored to each person, with a framework in Accelerated Experiential Dynamic Psychotherapy (AEDP). This therapy is a change-based model, in which we will work together from the very first session to seek out your natural potential for growth and resilience and, powered by these energies, strengthen and heal the authentic self that you have always possessed. I believe in the importance of feeling good. While we will work together to experience the parts of you that feel hurt, sad, angry, and alone, our goal will always be to broaden your ability to bounce back into feelings of vitality, joy, and connectedness. In addition, I may integrate DBT skills coaching in our work.
I treat adults and adolescents presenting with a range of concerns, including those suffering from depression, anxiety, addiction and those struggling with life transitions, shame, and relationship challenges.

Most Americans can identify at least one traumatic or distressing incident, however some of us find that our experiences can impact us even years later. I offer evidenced based trauma treatment while also building a safe and nurturing relationship with my clients.
Are you continuing to feel the effects of trauma in your life? How are you sleeping? How’s work or school going for you? Do you have the relationships with others that you desire or have you grown distant due to the need to protect that many trauma survivors too often feel?
I am most suited to treat clients with trauma histories that impact their current ability to thrive. I seek to empower clients to own their stories of overcoming. I help clients work to resolve trauma while seeking day to day recovery from process addictions, substance abuse, or disconnection from others. I also work with clients who are suffering from depression, anxiety, OCD, eating disorders, executive functioning concerns, life transitions and relationship problems.
I treat adults, adolescents, couples and families. Some of my techniques include traditional talk therapy, DBT, CBT, EMDR and psychoanalytic therapies. Together we can explore how the things of your past are continuing to limit you in the present. We’ll look for safe and effective ways to move forward during our time together.

Are you ready to live in your preferred future? I understand it can often feel overwhelming, uncertain and unfamiliar to ask for help
Are you ready to live in your preferred future? I understand it can often feel overwhelming, uncertain and unfamiliar to ask for help. The truth of the matter is that, at times, we can all get stuck in habits, routines and circumstances that we want to change. My way of helping includes a philosophy of empathy, enthusiasm, humor, hopefulness, presence, straightforwardness and therapeutic structure refined over decades of supporting others.
I strive to create an environment where my client’s desire to grow and evolve begins with expressing concerns and revealing aspirations for a better tomorrow. We’ll work together to build awareness, evaluate options, and prepare actions, readying you to live anew.

Do you ever feel out of sync with yourself or within your relationships with others?
Do you ever feel out of sync with yourself or within your relationships with others? Do you feel as if past experiences are preventing you from being fully present in your daily life? I utilize an acceptance and commitment approach to therapy in which we will mindfully acknowledge your needs, values, and goals in order to access a path towards greater life-fulfillment. I work with clients to foster a connection between mind and body, transforming negative patterns into thoughtful actions in order to enhance emotional awareness.
I believe that our relationship with ourselves is one of the most important relationships we will ever have in life and I encourage self-exploration through a variety of techniques. I utilize evidence-based techniques and interventions from Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT), Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT), Solution-Focused, Cognitive Reprocessing, and mindfulness.
Along with talk therapy, I encourage clients to engage in mindful practices outside of the therapy office such as yoga, meditation, and journaling. I provide individual counseling services to teens and adults with the following concerns: anxiety, depression, eating disorders, self-harm, suicidal thoughts, stressful life events and transitions, and survivors of traumatic experiences.

So much of our daily life involves interactions and relationships with others.
So much of our daily life involves interactions and relationships with others. Often these relationships are affecting us more than we realize and may cause difficulties in the home, at work or socially. I am here to help families, couples, and individuals understand how to better manage their challenges such as depression, anxiety, personal loss, infidelity, substance abuse, and self-esteem issues. As a couples and family therapist, I am trained to focus on relational issues as well as the everyday struggles of the individual. Sometimes life just happens to us and we find ourselves feeling discouraged and worn down; it’s times like these that people benefit from having someone to help them navigate these potentially difficult and challenging issues.
While understanding that the future is what we have the ability to change, certain aspects of our past may impact our present and these issues cannot be overlooked. I am here to explore with my clients their world and to find a plan which leads to positive change in their lives. I employ an integrated model of treatment which utilizes Solution-Focused Brief Therapy, Inter-generational Family Therapy, Strategic therapy, and Structural Family Therapy.
I have experience working with individuals, couples, and families as well as those in recovery from alcohol and substance abuse in private practice and community mental health settings. My goal is to help you develop clarity and insight to face your challenges and to support you in identifying and enhancing your inner strength and resilience.

Often times we are carrying around the mental and emotional weight of issues in our relationships, past experiences, traumas
Often times we are carrying around the mental and emotional weight of issues in our relationships, past experiences, traumas, or day to day stressors. After a while, this heaviness can begin to cause issues in other areas of your life and often manifests as depression, anxiety, or substance abuse. Do you have the relationships you desire? Are you achieving goals? Or is this heaviness leaving you feeling unfulfilled and stuck in life? Seeking help can be the first step in finding relief from your emotional pain and breaking the unhelpful habits and patterns you have developed.
I bring a holistic approach to therapy. Using cognitive-behavioral methods and other evidence-based techniques, I will support you on your journey inward. We will examine past and present influences that have shaped you, helping you recognize your own power and release anything keeping you from your greatest good.
In conjunction with therapy, I encourage my clients to practice other approaches for coping such as yoga, exercise, meditation, and aromatherapy. I offer individual, couples, and family counseling for a diverse group of clients that have concerns with the following: depression, anxiety, stress, suicide, trauma, relationship issues, grief and legal issues.

Facing life challenges can be strenuous for all of us
Facing life challenges can be strenuous for all of us, and when it involves our own families, it can feel lonely and emotional. At times, we reach out to our own family and friends for help, but that is not always enough.
Allow me to help you and your family navigate through these life challenges, by providing a safe, non-judgmental and empathetic environment. I will work collaboratively with my clients, to help strengthen relationships and facilitate growth both individually and as a family unit.
My practice is influenced by an eclectic therapeutic approach, which includes CBT, Solution Focused, Client-Centered and Family Systems Theories
My passion is to help children/adolescents and the entire family unit, navigate through life’s difficult challenges and provide tools to help with feelings of anxiety, depression, peer relationship struggles and more.

Are you looking to establish healthier relationships with yourself and others?
Are you looking to establish healthier relationships with yourself and others? My passion for creating safe space allows me the opportunity to meet my clients where they are in their struggles. I approach things from an affirmative, strengths-based, and relational-cultural lens. I want to work with you, as a therapeutic partnership, to develop a plan and approach that allows you to thrive in whatever that means for you. When going through relationship, intimacy, sexuality and gender, or trauma issues, it can be instrumental to have a therapist who can be non-judgmental, supportive, accepting, and understanding of what you’re going through. If you are facing these issues and want support in a therapeutic space, I welcome you to join me, individually or as a relationship unit, to process and work through the obstacles you are facing.
For so long, these topics have been taboo to discuss. My office is a space to shed the stigma and shame around these topics, to create safety and trust, while beginning this journey.
Through a combination of skills development and collaborative conversation, I hope to help you get to a place of satisfaction and joy within your relationships, intimacy, and identities. I treat adults for individual or couples work, as well adolescents who are 15 years and older for individual therapy.

As a holistic psychotherapist, I believe we are connected in our mind, body and spirit.
As a holistic psychotherapist, I believe we are connected in our mind, body and spirit. In order to make healthy transitions and transformation, addressing issues from the past into the present help us to become whole. There are times in life, when we feel on overload.
During this time, we may need to find a place of support. Therapy is a place where one can safely discover nuances of self and create healthier coping skills and behaviors.
I practice psychodynamic and person centered therapy and utilize other techniques to help the client make changes. Through collaborative work, the goal is to provide my client with the ability to become self aware and empowered. Counseling is a personal process. Everyone has a unique way of expressing self. When we are experiencing feelings of anxiety and or depression, for example, our subconscious and conscious are
often in conflict. Understanding our motivations and what our real needs are, we are able to create a calmer environment within.
Regardless of the issue, whether it is situational, such as a life transition, or chronic, my door is open. I work with a range of problems such as trauma, anxiety, depression, co-dependency, grief, binging, overeating and personality disorders. Making that first
appointment can be daunting but I see it as an exciting opportunity for growth.

Moving through life we collect stressors, unhealthy or poor coping skills, negative thoughts, traumas and more
Moving through life we collect stressors, unhealthy or poor coping skills, negative thoughts, traumas and more. Collecting these experiences may lead you to feel lost, unprepared, and overwhelmed. However they manifest, realigning with yourself and working through these life experiences can be a journey that we take together. We will work together to address your needs and goals in a non-judgmental, safe environment where you can better understand yourself and find progress forward.
I work with individual adults, adolescents and children focusing on those who experience stress, depression, anxiety, adjustment concerns and other traumatic life experiences. My approach is focused on integrating Cognitive Behavioral Theory (CBT), mindfulness, and bibliotherapy with a person-centered framework. I also encourage clients to participate in other activities to support and amplify wellness including yoga, meditation, and exercise.
I am a licensed graduate professional counselor. I attended Johns Hopkins where I earned a Master’s of Science in Counseling. I look forward to working together with you on your journey!

Do you feel called to heal and are curious yet overwhelmed by how to begin?
Do you feel called to heal and are curious yet overwhelmed by how to begin? I want to take a moment to celebrate your bravery in taking the initiative to seek a provider whose style may resonate with you!
With academic and professional experiences in both public health and social work, I approach my therapeutic practice by considering you, the individual (your mind, body and spiritual needs) in the context of your greater environment, and how your environment influences your internal self.
I have experience working with children, adolescents, and individual adults. My areas of focus include stress, anxiety, depression and suicidal ideation, substance use and addiction, and self-esteem issues. My training has included cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT), trauma-informed care, trust-based relational intervention (TBRI), with emphasis on attachment theory and nurturance in assessing individuals in relation to others.
In the therapeutic space, I invite exploration of identity formation, cultural transitions across generations, and the role of spirituality in the process of healing. Together we will set goals, explore healthy communication and relationship skills, and integrate self-love, self-care, and movement habits to assist you in reaching a more harmonious life balance.

During life’s journey, it is inevitable that challenges will arise.
During life’s journey, it is inevitable that challenges will arise. I believe that our challenges shape us and help us discover more facets of ourselves. Working through these challenges in a therapeutic setting can often be empowering, eye-opening, and cathartic. Each individual and relationship is unique; this drives me to use an eclectic therapeutic approach that simultaneously emphasizes your personal strengths. Together we will build a trusting partnership, which will allow us to navigate your life path together.
I am a graduate of the University of Maryland, Baltimore School of Social Work with a concentration in Clinical Practice. I have experience helping individuals cope with anxiety, manage depression, process grief and loss, and grow through life transitions.

As we navigate through life, we compile experiences that impact our identity.
As we navigate through life, we compile experiences that impact our identity. “Who we are” can be negatively affected by these experiences and can lead to dissonance or incongruity. I strongly believe that everyone has the power to overcome the impact of these challenging experiences. Through a collaborative approach, we can work together to help you identify unmet needs, develop understanding, improve personal development, and achieve self-efficacy.
I work with individual adults, adolescents, and children presenting with a range of concerns, including anxiety, depression, addiction, eating disorders, grief & loss, life transitions & adjustments, ones who have suffered forms of abuse, and those who have faced other adverse life events. The foundation of my approach is person-centered and psychodynamic. I use evidence-based interventions such as mindful self-compassion (MSC), Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT), Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT), Narrative Therapy, and Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy (CBT). I also have training in Family Based Therapy (FBT) for the treatment of eating disorders, suicide-related training & experience, and I collaborate with other professionals to provide trauma-informed care.
As a bilingual licensed graduate professional counselor (LGPC), I provide therapy in both English and Spanish. I attended the University of Minnesota where I earned a Master’s in Integrated Behavioral Health. Additionally, I am a research associate at the Uniformed Services University of the Health Science through the Henry Jackson Foundation, where I contribute to various suicide-related research projects. I am also a veteran of the Marine Corps.

Being fraught with uncertainty and upheaval takes its toll on yourself and your relationships
Being fraught with uncertainty and upheaval takes its toll on yourself and your relationships; whether it’s stress, anxiety, depression, grief or other challenges you are facing, working together can alleviate these issues. We can face your issues, your needs and/or your goals, no problem too small, no problem too large, and most important, no judgment. I am here for you.
“No matter the population that I work with, I feel privileged and humbled to be allowed to assist with one’s life journey, wherever that may be at any given moment in time.”
I am a licensed graduate professional counselor who works with a variety of clients from a diverse background. I see adolescent and adult individuals, couples, and families for therapy services. I work with individuals, couples and families facing life transitions, adjustment concerns, relationship struggles, clinical anxiety and depression and personality differences. I have an eclectic style when approaching my counseling work and can use many helpful interventions, tools, and philosophies in our time together.
Additionally, having earned my Master of Arts degree in Thanatology this accomplishment has provided me with specialized training in providing counseling to the dying as well as providing bereavement and grief counseling to those suffering from a loss. I co-created and facilitated the Death Café and have co-conducted Grief Seminars. In the Fall of 2019 I created and led a Pet Loss Support Group, providing an outlet for one of the many disenfranchised grief populations.

When human beings face adverse events or severe life stressors
When human beings face adverse events or severe life stressors, it is not uncommon for their lives to spiral out of control. I have a tremendous passion to provide healing for those individuals who are living with the consequences and symptoms of trauma. I have worked with children, adults and families to create healthy perceptions of themselves and strengthen their relationships with the community resulting in them feeling peaceful, complete and safe.
In my opinion there isn’t one single therapeutic approach that is right for every individual; in order to meet the diverse needs of my clients, I found it valuable to train in a few different modalities. Overall, my counseling style is quite eclectic and borrows from the ideas of REBT, person-centered and Gestalt therapies. I work with individual adults & adolescents with depression, anxiety, life transitions, adjustment concerns, relationship struggles, identity questions, personality differences and other health psychology problems. I have a clinical interest in men’s mental health and in addressing specific counseling needs of minority community members.
I’m also a licensed graduate professional counselor (LGPC) with an educational background that includes a Master’s in Counseling and a Bachelor’s in Conflict Analysis & Dispute Resolution (CADR).
In my practice, your safety is important to me and I will work to support you gaining the insight and perspective needed for healing. I look forward to working alongside you in this process. Please reach out with any questions.
