There are many reasons why you may decide to begin therapy. The important thing is taking the first step toward an opportunity for you to discover ways of building new skills and gaining new knowledge to help you experience life in a more fulfilling way. My goal is to help you build skills to increase self awareness and self acceptance resulting in feeling empowered to reach your goals and improving your sense of well-being. I have worked with clients from children to adults in schools, clinics, and private settings. I believe in providing support in a peaceful and accepting atmosphere.

Services include comprehensive psychological evaluations and therapy to adults, couples, families, adolescents, and children.
My counseling philosophy is based on the empathic understanding of the individual's circumstances and challenges impacting their functioning in life. I believe that insight, working in the “here and now,” addressing short and long-term goals, and acquiring healthy coping mechanisms are crucial to overcome emotional distress and acquire emotional growth. My philosophy as a therapist is that the clients are the EXPERTS and that the therapist is the one that follows the clients’ lead helping them to understand and solve in a healthy way their inner struggles and conflicts.

I have been in private practice for 19 years in Columbia Maryland, and provide individual, couple and group psychotherapy to adults and adolescents. My personal philosophy has always been to be of service to others. I have created a process to bring in to conscious awareness patterns of limiting beliefs and blockages in a place where healing and personal growth can flourish in an environment that is safe, confidential and free of judgement. The journey to the authentic self is one that requires courage, determination, self-reflection and unconditional love of yourselves.

I see the children, adolescents and adults I work with gaining self awareness and understanding through the treatment process Through openness, honesty and self respect all people have the ability to improve their circumstances and happiness.
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.

I have specialized in treating anxiety in children, teens and adults for the past 14 years.
As a fellow parent, I understand that there is no greater pleasure than to see your child happy and healthy. But excessive worrying, relentlessly demanding OCD rituals, the fear of vomiting, social anxiety, and self-harming behaviors like hair pulling and skin picking can rip away the joy of childhood and bring anguish to the family. I am a warm, compassionate, and very active cognitive-behavioral therapist with many years of success in helping children and teens recover from these challenges. I work as a team with parents, including them in at least part of every session.
