About

Hello! I am a Licensed Professional Counselor in DC, MD, and VA, as well as a board approved supervisor in MD. I have experience working with clients of differing ages and a varying array of needs to include depression, grief, anxiety, substance use and ADHD. Many of my clients are college students or working professionals in high-stress jobs who need assistance sorting through life transitions, managing anxiety or navigating interpersonal relationships. While I work well with those that aren't quite ready to make life changes, I work best with individuals that are engaged and ready to do the work needed to live their best life!
I always take a person-centered approach to therapy. I often use Cognitive Behavioral Therapy and Positive Psychology along with mindfulness techniques in order to assist clients in understanding the root of the problems they face and develop and implement skills to change thoughts and behaviors to live a more fulfilling life.
I am always honest with clients and want you to feel safe to express yourself as you need to during sessions. I have a laid back approach to my therapy practice and try to help clients think and move outside of their typical comfort zones in order to see the improvements that they seek.
