Hello, hey, welcome! My goal is to help people who have a sense of being ‘other’ feel more comfortable. Maybe you have felt different because of your life experiences, your family, how you present to the world, how you process information, or a trauma you experienced. Maybe things don’t seem to go the way you think they should and you aren’t sure why. Whatever brings you to therapy, I will meet you with compassion for your pain, respect for how you got to your current situation, and a certainty that together we can help you make changes, feel better, and create the sort of life you want.
I am interested in people and in helping them change. I respect the courage it takes to face fears and difficult situations. I offer an emotionally safe, non-judgmental space in which to explore the problem and together, come up with a solution. People find it easy to talk to me. I am warm, responsive, and kind. I am experienced in helping people with any type of anxiety, depression, low self-esteem, difficult childhoods, adjustment, grief and loss.
Welcome. I specialize in rapport building to get to know each client as an individual. My primary objective is to offer strength-based and behavioral based therapeutic intervention services. I have a strong desire to make a positive difference in people's lives by offering means for clients to share experiences, gain support, and improve their self care. I am certified in Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT).
Are you finding that you are more irritable, have trouble concentrating or trouble sleeping? Are you having some difficulty in your interpersonal relationships? Do you have a child who is acting out or having trouble with their performance in school? These are issues that many of us face yet we often do not have the answers or know how to effectively deal with them. Through our eclectic therapeutic approach we will help you to process and identify coping skills to assist you in dealing with various life issues that often hinder us from being our very best.

As a trusted companion with the training and lived experiences, I have the tools to help guide you through this journey. My work centers the unique experiences of Black, Brown, Indigenous, Asian and Latine folks who desire to mend cumulative trauma in their bodies while fostering joy and wholeness. Clients who have worked with me have appreciated the humanness of our sessions specifically the way we prioritize joy whilst working through complex trauma. A space where you can take the edge off. Life can be soft.
Are you anxious, depressed, and having trouble finding and maintaining satisfying relationships? Are you feeling motivated to learn more about yourself and make changes in your life?

Working to solve problems first as a lawyer and now as a psychotherapist with psychoanalytic training, I developed skills in listening and creating solutions. By listening in a neutral, non-judgmental way, I provide a safe, confidential space to understand and resolve challenging issues and relationships at home, at work, or in school. Focusing on your concerns as a team, we develop a working partnership and build on your strengths to increase your understanding and acceptance of yourself and your relationships, and develop positive changes. One of my goals is for you to "graduate" and potentially become your own therapist.
I help people move from stress and dissatisfaction to productivity and peace. Whether you are anxious, stressed or sad, dealing with relationship issues, or just not feeling like you are getting the most out of life, we can work together to create a plan for you to develop the life you want to live.
A sense of well-being is something we all want, yet sometimes struggle to achieve. I am a licensed therapist in the state of Maryland and my goal is to help you rediscover the meaning, satisfaction, and overall feeling of wellness in your life. My practice is targeted at working with adults and adolescents struggling with issues related to anxiety, depression, grief, self-esteem, and relationship problems.
Over twenty years extensive experience with specialized evidence-based treatment strategies, I help clients in search of solutions to relationship difficulty, traumatic life events and challenging transitions. Feeling overwhelmed, stuck, hopeless, and want to work toward positive changes? My expertise in systemic relational therapy for individuals, couples, and families helps to identify negative patterns, incorporate helpful skills and gain relief from relationship distress. Safe support is given to those living with unprocessed complex trauma, anxiety, depression, chronic illness demands, grief/historic loss, relational distress.
I work with a diverse population in treating many psychological issues. My work includes young children to adults with various psychological and life issues that are addressed in a safe and therapeutic environment.
We are right here to help with convenient, confidential e-counseling sessions. Most major insurances accepted. We are a group of over 20 therapists committed to reaching underserved populations throughout the State of Maryland. Teletherapy is covered by most insurances with equal benefits as in-person treatment. Research has demonstrated that videotherapy is just as effective as face-to-face therapy. That said, it is not recommended for those who are experiencing suicidal or homicidal ideation or for those who need medical monitoring (addiction detox, eating disorder early recovery, etc.) or for children under the age of 12.

Now accepting new telehealth clients! Please e-mail me. Seeking support is a courageous act of self-love. I would love to explore the possibility of working together. Clients often come in with symptoms of depression and anxiety and feel disconnected from themselves and others. My hope is to build a trusting relationship where you can explore the emotional obstacles that are preventing you from reaching your goals, and to help you identify the underlying emotions motivating behaviors such as hurt, sadness, fear, loss, and loneliness. My clients report feeling listened to, understood, and empowered.
Do you have concerns about your ability to cope with anger, anxiety, career transitions, and/or intimacy and interpersonal issues? Are you feeling disconnected? Often, we can find ourselves in a “life loop” that can make us feel like we’re on autopilot. Sometimes those feelings of anger, anxiety, and disconnection can feel so strong that we feel isolated and alone. But the truth is that you are not alone and do not have to navigate those issues by yourself. You can free yourself of your issues! You can live the life that you desire!
My clients generally describe me as an active, challenging, and empathic psychologist. I often find myself compassionately joining with clients in the middle of their difficulties, so that we can collaborate on finding a way out together. It's not uncommon for me to give clients feedback on their choices, while I also respect clients' autonomy. I work best with individuals and couples who are invested in their own growth and willing to experiment with new behaviors and perspectives. I tend to rely on relational-cultural and mindfulness-based approaches, and I am also open to adapting my approach to address clients' unique needs.

Life is full of transitions, twists and turns, and "things coming at us". We sometimes wake up with a desire to free ourselves from mental - social/emotional hurt, when in front of life experiences. Whether the pain is new, or coming from the past, talking and having an outlet, is the beginning before releasing the negative WE hang on to... When you are ready and motivated to make changes to reach a new level of living, I am here to help you face the obstacles that are in the way of your objectives...
I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker and Board Certified Art Therapist with over 30years experience. The foundation of my approach is psycho-dynamic, but tailored to meet the needs of my client in seeking to understand what may be troubling, puzzling or anxiety producing in the present situation. I use an eclectic blend of talk, cognitive, inter-personal and (sometimes) visual arts experience to guide clients on a journey toward resolution of conflicts and a self-aware, satisfying and positive life.
Are you, or is your child, feeling distressed and frustrated ... do you feel stuck , prevented from meeting life's inevitable challenges? During 40 years as a psychologist, I have been generously "trained" by hundreds of individuals, families, couples, children and adolescents seen in my practice. These experiences have taught me to approach treatment holistically, giving equal attention to the psychological, biological, social and spiritual aspects of life. While respecting the importance of scientifically validated therapeutic techniques, I also appreciate the fundamental role of the therapeutic relationship - a relationship grounded in trust, respect, compassion, and (hopefully) wisdom borne of experience.
