About

If you are struggling with sadness and emotional pain, help is available. I am a Clinical Social Worker and a Creative Arts therapist. I am a Certified Sand Tray therapist, and Psychodramatist. As a Clinician with the Department of Defense, I have treated all branches of the military and their family members for over 20 years, both in the states and overseas. I currently have a private practice in Washington D.C. and Maryland. I also provide Online Video Therapy, texting, and Skype. As your therapist, my role is to help you navigate through emotional pain while obtaining workable solutions.
Specialties include: Treating African Americans and other Minorities who struggle with Depression, Anxiety, Fear, Feelings of Exclusion, Low self esteem, Inequality, Racism, and Sub-cultural racism in a toxic environment. I treat Baby Boomers and Millennials of ALL RACES struggling with Transition, Midlife Crisis, Empty Nest, Menopause, Relationships, and Grief.
As a Psychodramatist, the premise is we are as healthy as the roles we play. The goal is to retire dysfunctional roles and increase spontaneity and productivity in developing healthy roles. In Sand tray therapy, the goal is to make the subconscious process visible with figurines in a sand tray.
