I generally work with adults 18 and above, but also work with those 13 and above who are part of the LGBTQ / GLBTQ (Gay, Lesbian, Bisexual, Transgender , and Questioning) community.
I believe that we are all on our own journey through life and that the right journey for one person isn't necessarily the right journey for another. My job as a counselor isn't to tell you which one to take; it's to help you remove the roadblocks from your journey in an effort to make your choices in the future clearer for you. In order for counseling to be successful, the counselor and the client need to have a good connection to each other, and I strive to begin forming that connection from the very first meeting. I've worked with a wide variety of clients. Contact me and lets see how we can work together.

I am a trans identified psychotherapist with clinical training influenced by person centered, relational, and family systems theory. I value the importance of providing my clients with unconditional positive regard, empathy, and congruence. I specialize in LGBTQIA+ affirming therapy and use an intersectional lens to ensure my clients are truly seen. I provide compassionate, authentic, and skilled therapy to support and empower my clients. I work from a framework that acknowledges how clients’ intersecting identities impact their mental health, and needs within therapy, specifically when it comes to the effects of minority stress.

Greetings! I am a gay, white cisgender therapist whose passion is working with LGBTQ clients. I specialize in working with clients with depression, anxiety, and trauma along with identity challenges tied to sexual orientation, gender identity, and religious rejection. As a therapist, I help reduce shame and stigma around mental health, and introduce a range of grounding skills to both calm and boost ourselves. My approaches include Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT) for intense emotions, Internal Family Systems (IFS) for responses that feel automatic, and Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) for negative thinking.

Many clients need support with life stressors, anxiety, depression, identity issues, and exploration. Folks can struggle with accessing coping skills that ground and support them in their struggles. My focus in counseling is for clients to be seen, have their voices heard, and overcome obstacles to be their authentic selves. I understand that feelings of hopelessness, uncertainty, and frustration are challenging and cause significant turbulence in one's life. I am the collaborative co-pilot, working with clients to navigate their own lives to meet their social and emotional goals. We discover ways to enhance their life's journey.

Flow is seen as easy movement through life, but flow is found within our challenges too. Discomfort can be a catalyst to neuroplasticity & growth. Traumatic stress from past & present can overwhelm our natural rhythms & balance. Connecting to body and intuitive experience leads us along the path of healing. I help clients navigate their routes to wellness & authentic embodiment with a well exercised sense of humor, grace for self/others & common sense tools. I work to co-create & hold space for clients to understand & release trauma, from ancestral to individual, grounded in systems perspectives for de-pathologizing mental health.

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.

Human interaction is powerful - and we often are unaware of the impact of our experiences until we speak them aloud to an understanding ear. As a therapist, I strive to create a safe, affirming space so that we can explore issues and address problems together, working from your perspective. I work with adults and adolescents who have experienced grief and bereavement, childhood trauma, anxiety and depression, chronic illness, identity-based discrimination and life transitions - as well as those who are caregivers, exploring gender and/or sexuality, or are having difficulty at work. I am also trained in EMDR.

Have you been secretly struggling with burdens trying to ‘grin and bear it’? Have you been traumatized? Feel unloveable or worthless? Does finishing school or keeping a job seem impossible? Are you having trouble connecting with family and friends? Feel like your full potential is unreachable? Or frustrated with life itself? You’re not broken or alone; therapy can be a great tool that can help you find that inner resiliency to keep moving forward without being weighed down by guilt, shame, or judgement. It’s okay to ask for support and help, especially when the world feels like a dumpster fire on top of our own personal battles.

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.

My style tends to be collaborative, providing warmth and support while also encouraging honest emotional expression. I value personal exploration in a safe environment in order to improve self-understanding and self-acceptance. Fulfilling relationships with others are often a byproduct of this type of therapy, as is improved mood, increased self-confidence, and enhanced life satisfaction.

What type of Ellicott City mental health professional is right for me?
While most types of therapy have a lot in common, they also fall into clusters that share core features, such as cognitive therapies or psychodynamic approaches. It is important to seek someone who practices evidence-based therapy, meaning one or more forms of treatment that have been scientifically evaluated and tested, and demonstrate consistent improvement for a majority of patients.

If you are unsure about choosing the right therapist or psychologist, it might be useful to first learn more about therapy types and modalities.

How to find a therapist or counselor in Ellicott City?
When looking to find a therapist, start by considering training and credentials. Studies also indicate that the therapeutic alliance, or the relationship the client develops with the therapist, is an important factor in their ability to work together to achieve the client’s goals.

What method of therapy is right for me?
When it comes to treatment methods, there's no 'right way.’ Each method of therapy can be beneficial for a variety of issues. Finding a psychologist or therapist who is a good fit for you is the most important step to discovering what type of therapy, or combination of therapeutic approaches, will meet your individual needs. Learn what to expect from different types of therapy and how they work.
