Over the past 20 years, I've had the opportunity to work with children and adolescents. In the last 10 years I've increased my scope to include young and older adults. Anxiety, depression, trauma and other behavioral challenges have made up the majority of my work. In each of these situations a strength-based, goal-centric and client-empowered approach has yielded success. In my experience my clients have simply wanted to feel better about their place in life while re-learning to hope once again. My work in schools and in practice have taught me that my success begins from a place of genuine care for my client's well-being.

All of my work involves the child 's parents, either in the therapy room with the child and me or in separate "Parent Guidance" sessions.
I work mainly with young children (0-8 years) who suffer with anxiety and trauma-related symptoms, as well as attachment disorders and regulatory issues (such as inability to soothe fussy babies and impulsivity in preschoolers). I have years of experience working with parents and their adopted children .

My primary focus is working with children and adolescents who are struggling with family discord, parent separation and/or divorce. Since 1996 I have been working within the school system, consulting for an adolescent residential/outpatient therapeutic treatment facility and in private practice. I work with children , adolescents, and their families to improve their skills navigating through life's challenges, transitions, and daily stressors. I also assist people who are feeling depressed, sad, anxious, or dealing with general relationship concerns. Together we develop skills to increase self esteem and coping abilities to promote resilient individuals and more communicative families.

My areas of interest: * Depression * Post-partum issues * Anxiety * Behavior management for children ; skills for parents * Young-adulthood transition issues * Separation / Divorce issues * Separation / Divorce support groups * Support groups for children / adolescents experiencing their parents' divorce * Exploration of being bi/multi-racial, and sorting out the question of, "Who am I?".
I am a Masters level Clinical Social Worker (LCSW-C), and I work with children , adolescents, and adults. I also enjoy running support groups. I believe that everyone has strengths that can support and guide them through hard times. However, during especially difficult experiences, we often forget our strengths. And it is at this point when it becomes important to have someone to confide in. Together we can identify goals that will lead you toward healthier ways of coping. Hopefully after practicing more positive and constructive coping skills, you will find yourself with a greater sense of emotional satisfaction in life.

Children want to please the parents.
Family therapy is my practice style. I believe it is an honor to provide counseling where trust is developed to find solutions. My counseling is individual, child , adolescent, family, and marital counseling. I accept clients who I believe have the capacity to resolve their own problems with my assistance. I believe that as people become more accepting of themselves, they are more capable of finding happiness and contentment in their lives. Self-awareness and self-acceptance are goals that sometimes take a long time to achieve.

What type of Maryland mental health professional is right for me?
While most types of therapy have a lot in common, they also fall into clusters that share core features, such as cognitive therapies or psychodynamic approaches. It is important to seek someone who practices evidence-based therapy, meaning one or more forms of treatment that have been scientifically evaluated and tested, and demonstrate consistent improvement for a majority of patients.

If you are unsure about choosing the right therapist, it might be useful to first learn more about therapy types and modalities.
How to find a therapist in Maryland?
When looking to find a therapist, it is certainly important to consider training and credentials. Studies also indicate that the therapeutic alliance, or the relationship the client develops with the therapist, is an important factor in their ability to work together to achieve the client’s goals.

What method of therapy is right for me?
When it comes to treatment methods, there's no 'right way.’ Each method of therapy can be beneficial for a variety of issues. Finding a psychologist or therapist who is a good fit for you is the most important step to discovering what type of therapy, or combination of therapeutic approaches, will meet your individual needs. Learn what to expect from different types of therapy and how they work.

How to use my insurance?
Understanding cost and insurance coverage is an important concern for many people. With some basic research and conversations with prospective therapists, you should be able to have a good understanding of the best way to afford therapy.
