My practice is virtual and is open to residents of Maryland, Washington D.C., Minnesota, Massachusetts, Georgia, Colorado, Texas, and Virginia. However, as a couples coach I work with clients in all 50 states. Working virtually gives you the opportunity to be comfortable in your own space while we talk about what’s on your heart and mind. I believe that therapy can be life changing. While it’s not a cure all, or a quick fix, it’s a way to deal with and process the stresses of daily life. I don’t have an agenda and I will meet you where you are. We'll talk about what’s on your heart and mind and identify areas for growth.

In today's busy world, it's hard to find peace of mind. Many of us as a result, are overly stressed and experience negative effects of that stress, such as anxiety and depression. I believe that seeking help and opening up to another individual takes a great deal of bravery. Because of that, I have a tremendous amount of respect for the individuals I work with. As a counseling psychologist and registered yoga teacher, I approach mental health from a wellness perspective aiming to help clients find meaning and fulfillment in their lives.
