I can understand and respect the feelings associated with seeking mental health treatment and the hesitation to engage in treatment. I commend you for taking the steps to not only seek out treatment but to also explore which therapist you feel would be best for you. I look forward to taking the next steps with you on your journey as you process the life changes you are facing, trauma you have endured, relationship issues, or any other obstacles or stressors you may be facing. I work with children, teens, and adults.
As a Licensed Clinical Professional Counselor and a Licensed Clinical Professional Art Therapist I practice both verbal therapy and art therapy. Let me know which modality you prefer. I bring 22 years of experience to each session. Your goals in treatment are my priority. Your goals may range from creating coping strategies for anxiety to learning how to communicate to piecing together the puzzle that brought you here. Reaching out takes courage. I look forward to assisting you in your journey toward balance.
Are you feeling alone and overwhelmed? Are your thoughts constantly on replay and you cannot focus on the things you want to focus on? Do you struggle with feeling exhausted all the time? You might be finding yourself irritable and unhappy most of the time. These feelings and thoughts may be causing you to avoid the people you love, leading you to develop unhealthy relationships and boundaries and adding to stress in your life.
I believe every individual has the ability to change their circumstances by focusing on the elements which are within their control. Equally as important, we must learn to let go of situations over which we are powerless. By sharing experiences with another person and working through the obstacles that inhibit the life we desire, it is possible to create a life which allows us to thrive. My goal is to assist you in this process by providing a safe environment where you can be open and honest with yourself.
Sometimes in life we experience a disconnect between where we want to be and where we are in our thoughts, behaviors, work, or relationships. I am here to help you understand yourself better so that you can begin to mindfully live your best life. I specialize in working with clients through life transitions, relationship issues, family conflict, and workplace challenges. Additionally, I have a passion for helping women through life difficulties including motherhood, infertility, career related challenges, and the overall stressors of navigating life.

I am a Licensed Clinical Professional Counselor in Maryland who serves primarily young adults, adults, and seniors. I work with a variety of theoretical orientations including Acceptance and Commitment Therapy, Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy, Person Centered Therapy, EMDR, mindfulness based strategies, and trauma informed skills. This allows the person who walks through my door to know that we have options on how to proceed in our work together. I offer an abundance of psychoeducation, make many recommendations, and can create more structure in session if it’s of service to the client.
I feel that everyone has the ability to change their life for the better when the conditions and time align. My goals as your therapist are first to provide a safe, authentic and judgment free environment where you will be able to work through difficult parts of your life, and then to support and gently guide you on your journey to better living.

Everyone has struggles from time to time and sometimes we find that they are just really hard to overcome on our own. Having someone to talk through these struggles with can make a huge difference. I’m here to talk through these struggles with you and determine what the best choice of action is. The goal is to help you learn healthier ways to navigate through life in the future on your own.
Do you feel stuck? Do you need a space to navigate challenges? Let’s figure it out together. As a counselor with 13+ years of experience, it is my passion to help couples and individuals make intentional steps towards healing and getting “unstuck” from the life stresses impacting their relationship satisfaction and quality of life. I recognize the importance of taking time to learn your unique life and relationship stories; to listen to your hopes and goals for therapy; and to collaborate with you to create an individualized therapy plan with practical skills and realistic strategies that you can apply in your daily life.
I incorporate CBT and Solution Focused Therapy and am very person centered in my approach. My approach focuses on the client's current life and relationships within the family and environment. This approach is to help the client identify and resolve problems with insight and strengths. I am passionate about helping people to find better ways of dealing with stress and anxiety found in life's transitions, personal and familial relationships. To me, therapy helps provide awareness, understanding, improved self esteem and personal change, all of which move clients to lead more satisfying, fulfilling and happy lives.
I believe that everyone has within them the strength to face any challenge life brings. My duty as a Licensed Clinical Social Worker is to help people understand their problem, find that internal strength, and develop the supports needed to take back control and find success in their lives. I have been working with children, adolescents, and adults Harford County, MD for over 11 years. I have an excellent reputation among my peers and clients for successfully providing compassionate and innovative services.
NOT ACCEPTING NEW CLIENTS AT THIS TIME. I am a Licensed Clinical Professional Counselor who specializes in working with children, teens & young adults. In order to find the courage to change, I provide a safe, non-judgmental environment which creates trust, compassion, and understanding. This caring environment encourages the development of new positive coping skills, insight, and self-awareness, all needed to make the necessary changes to live a happy and healthy life. I use a variety of tools and techniques from Art, Play, & Child-Centered Therapy to an Eclectic approach, as therapy is uniquely tailored for each individual client.
Through the use of EMDR, DBT, and other complementary techniques, I help people overcome a wide range of challenges. I have found that standard "talk therapy" may help people think about things differently or make better choices in their lives, but those people often don't feel any better than before. My clients report genuinely feeling better, that their lives are changed through no longer feeling the same pain that haunted them before. Diagnoses I have successfully treated include PTSD, anxiety disorders, OCD, eating disorders, and depression, to name a few.
As a professional counselor it is my sincere hope that everyone who suffers with mental, emotional, or spiritual pain, learn to live by their own self direction with wellbeing and purpose. If you feel that your life has become unmanageable or if you feel stuck in your personal life, marriage, career or spirituality, today I tell you there is help for you. I am a dually licensed counselor and my mission is to rehabilitate the mind, body, and spirit using scientific clinical interventions and techniques.
