I am an intuitive and compassionate therapist who believes that each of us can create a more peaceful and fulfilling life. We all have basic needs: closeness, safety, stability, autonomy, self-worth, identity, well-being, and meaning. In order to experience the satisfaction and happiness that is possible in life, these basic needs must be met to some extent and we must each learn how to get them met. We can do this by expanding our awareness of how our mind and body works together and by learning new methods for engaging with other people and with our environment.

I work with individuals, couples, adolescents and children and their families, and groups to help people cultivate more satisfying relationships. I use a variety of interventions: cognitive-behavioral, mindfulness, and body awareness, to help people learn to regulate thoughts, emotions, and behaviors and to connect better with others.

I am licensed as a Clinical Supervisor in the State of Maryland, providing supervision toward licensure for MSW students and clinical supervision for LGSWs and LPCs working toward advanced licensure. I have an office in Takoma Park and in Cockeysville at Cometa Wellness Center.
