In my more recent practice years, I have enjoyed working with the LGBTQ community as a straight ally, and advocating for equal rights and fair treatment for all.

Some of my experience includes dealing with ADHD, Asperger's Syndrome and Traits, Parenting Issues, Adoption, Anxiety (including PTSD and OCD), Depression and other Mood Disorders, Marital/Couple Problems, Adult- Teen Developmental Issues and Conflicts, Problems of Early Childhood, Personality Disorders, Transitions in life such as Divorce or Loss, and formal Cognitive and Personality Assessments.
It takes a lot of courage to seek help, especially in a world that unfairly stigmatizes getting psychological services. Lack of understanding of what therapy is and how people can benefit from it prevents some from using professional services to know and understand themselves better, to improve relationships, and to live more meaningful, fulfilling lives regardless of their challenges. Sometimes people have troubling symptoms due to anxiety, depression, and other disorders and need help to address these symptoms and their causes. I use a variety of approaches to help clients. My goal is to empower clients through a healthy, therapeutic relationship.

If you are facing challenges with your child or teen at home, please feel free to reach out to me for a consult.
I specialize in working with children, teens, and young adults who struggle with social, emotional or behavioral issues associated with anxiety, ADHD, OCD, learning disabilities, loss or divorce. Drawing largely from the evidence-based practices of cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) and dialectical behavioral therapy (DBT), my goals are to help young clients gain an understanding of their challenges and develop more effective coping skills. I work closely with parents to help them better understand their child’s difficulties and learn how to best guide and support them at home and school.

I am an integrative psychotherapist who grounds my practice in trauma-informed, narrative, and critical consciousness frameworks. I also have experience and training in mindfulness, trauma-focused CBT, child and adolescent trauma, and EMDR therapy. I have also completed population-specific trainings relating to gender, sexuality, racism and oppression. I understand that many mental health challenges cannot be separated from social, environmental, and political contexts, and seek to challenge dominant narratives which negatively impact the ways people come to see themselves. I believe in the power of community.

Every stage in life, every situation we face, brings with it challenges, hardships and opportunities. The psychotherapeutic process brings focus and awareness to where we are now in our lives, where we've been, and the person we want to be. I see the therapeutic process as a journey that we take together. Whether you are an adult, adolescent , or family, my goal is to create a safe, caring, non-judgmental environment where you can explore relationship dynamics, patterns of behavior, identity, and opportunities for growth and change.

I have a special interest in working with child and adolescent adoptees and their families to support their connection and bonding.
I believe that the power of therapy comes through the understanding of how self defeating patterns of behavior interfere with our ability to have a happy and productive life. I believe that focusing and building on our strengths will enhance our functioning. Examining our behavior is critical to developing healthy options for ourselves and in our relationships. Through an open and respectful process we will examine the areas in your life that have interfered with your ability to make positive, forward thinking choices. As you develop different coping strategies the hope of change will support healing and growth.

Teen Therapists
Adolescence can be a time of both disorientation and discovery. The transitional period can raise questions of independence and identity; as adolescents cultivate their sense of self, they may face difficult choices about academics, friendship, sexuality, gender identity, drugs, and alcohol.

Most teens have a relatively egocentric perspective on life; a state of mind that usually abates with age. They often focus on themselves and believe that everyone else—from a best friend to a distant crush—is focused on them too. They may grapple with insecurities and feelings of being judged. Relationships with family members often take a backseat to peer groups, romantic interests, and appearance, which teens perceive as increasingly important during this time.

The transition can naturally lead to anxiety about physical development, evolving relationships with others, and one's place in the larger world. Mild anxiety and other challenges are typical, but serious mental health conditions also emerge during adolescence. Finding a teen therapist in Ellicott City and addressing a disorder early on can help ensure the best possible outcome.
