I am a Licensed Psychologist with a Ph.D. in Counseling Psychology from the University of Maryland at College Park. I provide individual therapy for adults and teens for the treatment of depression, anxiety, anger management, parenting concerns, post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), and other matters.
I have a special interest in mindfulness-based therapy. Being mindful means learning to live in the present moment without focusing too much on the future or past. There is good research to support the use of mindfulness to treat numerous mental health concerns and to increase happiness.
Therapy is about making changes in your life. I believe in taking a solution-focused approach to help clients make the most of their lives. I look forward to talking to you about how we might work together to achieve your goals!
