About

We all deserve relief from our burdens. Beginning therapy takes motivation, courage and the desire to change and grow. Most of us wouldn’t do it unless we need real help. I create a safe and supportive environment for you to explore how to improve your quality of life and together, we explore ways for you to heal and grow. I work with clients facing a variety of challenges including family of origin stressors, life transitions, trauma, anxiety, and depression. I am a queer affirming therapist.
I provide individual therapy working from an integrative treatment approach. My approach to therapy is one of mutual respect and collaboration. I help clients face challenges head on and develop strategies to make life more fulfilling. I believe in the power of a strong, therapeutic relationship and believe it is vital to making progress together.
I love my work, I am passionate and honored to be part of this profession. Most people who work with me find that their relationships with others are stronger, more satisfying and they feel less shame, fear, and sadness. I am licensed in both Maryland and Pennsylvania.
