I specialize in working with high schoolers and young adults struggling with complex trauma, depression, anxiety, and grief. I aim to assist these individuals in managing their mental health challenges, engaging in self-care, and finding peace again in their lives.
Every person is a unique individual and it is important to consider all of the life factors affecting how each client experiences and thinks about life. Such factors may include family life, work, social environment, social supports, past experiences, physical needs (rest, diet & nutrition, exercise, etc.), spiritual beliefs, and mental well-being. I use methods that best meet each client's individual needs, and encourage my clients to work collaboratively throughout the counseling process.
I offer therapy in a non-judgmental, safe and confidential environment.I provide a holding space where individuals feel comfortable sharing their concerns so that we can work together to gain insight on life's stresses and struggles.I have a knowledge base in working children (4 to 18).I collaborate with clients to develop effective coping mechanisms, process through life experiences, and accomplish personal goals. My clinical background includes therapy with individual, groups, and families. I utilze an ecletic approach to help the clients I serve.

The first step is the hardest, but you have done it. Life is full of challenges, from depression and anxiety to PTSD, grief, or other life adjustments. Whatever you are facing, counseling can help you learn to manage or overcome it.
Are you struggling with life challenges that you cannot seem to get ahead of? Have difficult life experiences kept you stuck in patterns of thinking and behaving that no longer serve you? Acknowledging that you need support is the first step, and I am here to help guide you on your journey towards living your most fulfilled life.
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.
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.
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.
I am a firm believer that there is no such thing as a "bad" child. It can be challenging for little people to handle big emotions. No matter how young a child is, their feelings matter! Whether your child is struggling with anxiety, depression, anger outbursts, or behavioral issues, I am here to help! I enjoy helping children and families navigate challenges and transitions. My goal is for children and their families to become more connected and grow stronger together.
Trained in psychedelic-assisted therapy, I offer both preparation and integration sessions for those interested in support for processing psychedelic experiences. Grounded in Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT) and Compassion-Focused Therapy (CFT), I also work with adults to develop the insight and skills needed for emotional healing, desired change, and growth. DBT is helpful in replacing unwanted thoughts and behaviors with healthy and adaptive alternatives. CFT combines multiple therapeutic models for the purpose of over coming self-criticism and enhancing our ability to experience contentment.

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.
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.
Maybe you feel like life is not worth living anymore. Like no one has your back. Maybe you find yourself saying, “I’m going to fail anyway, so why even try?” Or maybe you want to start moving forward with your life, but don’t know where to even begin. It is completely possible to get "unstuck," so that you can begin living again, and not just merely existing. It all starts with knowing that YOU ARE NOT ALONE.
My focus is individual based however I engage in family work as well. My practice style is largely comprised of cognitive behavioral, goal-oriented and solution focused modalities. I offer a mix of in-person and telehealth services.
My approach to therapy emphasizes insight, healing, and empowerment to help individuals reach their highest potential and lead more gratifying lives. Through an alliance of trust and collaboration, we will work together to disentangle confusing thoughts, feelings and behaviors in order to re-discover your capacity to make meaningful choices that are right for you and your relationships. My work focuses on facilitating change, transformation, and personal growth in a safe, confidential, and non-judgmental environment. I believe that we each have the innate capacity to heal and reach our true potential.
You are sick of constantly feeling anxious, guilty, and that you are never “enough.” I know how hard it can be to ask for help when you are the one who is usually supporting others. Maybe you’ve tried self-help or therapy in the past, but are now ready to do deeper work to make lasting change.
