Welcome! As a Licensed Professional Counselor and Certified Life Coach, I take a big-picture approach to your mental/emotional health and wellness. Throughout my life, I have believed that society, in general, underestimates the power of human emotions and feelings, our internal GPS critical to guiding our path in life. During each session, I support you in uncovering your strengths, recover damaged self-esteem, and gain skills to manage the anxieties of everyday challenges. Together we will work to develop strategies and a plan-of-action to help move your life forward.
My technique encourages you to own and value your self-worth via a process of examining and reconciling past experiences, discovering the lessons learned and setting healthy limits and boundaries to avoid toxic relationships and make better decisions that are more in line with your personal truth, values, and future.
I only accept appointments for CareFirst insurance members or Self-pay clients. Also, I offer HIPAA Compliant Online Video, a special factor unique to my practice, and In-person therapy sessions, both covered by CareFirst insurance. Feel free to contact me by phone or email to schedule a free consultation.
