Let's Connect (443) 383-3766
I support clients through young adult experiences, bullying, grief/loss, foster care, homelessness and suicidal ideation that caused, maintained or exacerbated by Anxiety Disorders, Major Depressive Disorder, Bipolar Disorder, PTSD and Mood Disorders. Recognizing triggers, developing emotional language to communicate distress, learning the function of maladaptive behaviors, reducing self-judgment, and developing skills to manage psychological distress are some of the work I do with clients.
In sessions we collaboratively work to understand and take care of the whole self–psychological, spiritual, social, and biological. I encourage my clients to explore the full extent of their personhood without shame, guilt or judgment. My goal is to empower people to overcome life’s obstacles, improve mental well-being, and lead a more fulfilling life.
I often use IFS, CBT, Motivational Interviewing and trauma informed care to explore, understand and address the cognitive emotional and behavioral basis of who you are and who you want to be. We’ll work through overthinking, people pleasing, boundary issues, avoidance, procrastination, guilt, shame, fear and more.

I work with clients who may be struggling with depression or trauma related to their relationships or family. During our initial sessions, we will delve deeply into the issues at hand, and collaborate to create a plan for addressing them in a way that helps you get your life back. Most of my clients see a gradual lifting of symptoms within the first month and sustained improvement thereafter

"
I often use Cognitive Behavioral Therapy in my practice. In your first session, we'll explore what brought you to therapy and then decide the most appropriate ways to help you make progress. With CBT, we'll look at how your thoughts affect your emotions and experience. During treatment, I'll help you learn how to push back against those thoughts to change your feelings for the better."
