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.

We will work together utilizing narrative therapy, CBT, DBT, motivational interviewing, trauma focused therapy or mindfulness practices to unlock your full potential.
The journey you are on is far greater than the season you are walking through. Adjusting to life in a post pandemic world has left many learning to cope with the unknown; unknown stress, unknown career paths, unknown relationships, unknown trauma, unknown sense of self. Sometimes these unknowns cause increased anxiety, depressive states, low self esteem, stress in relationships and loss of direction. You are capable of embracing your unknowns to build your new life, even if it appears to be far different than you planned. You have the power. We just need to grow it.

Life not turning out the way you wanted? Is your workplace full of stress and frustration? Worried about your children or is your home-life more challenging than expected? As someone who has juggled their family/personal life with their corporate work-world for over 20 years, and has mentored/coached parents and kids, for the past 13 years, I get it! Even though we are strong and resilient, we experience the struggles and emotions of everyday life. Instead of just “coping” your way through life, reach out to someone who genuinely relates and can help you live the life you always dreamed.

Discovering one's life purpose is often an elusive and uncertain journey. People can live most of their lives and never discover their purpose. When the experiences of pain, suffering, and grief seem to be the norm rather than peace, joy, and love, the question is often, "why do bad things happen to good people?" Understanding and embracing life's most challenging experiences make the difference between resilience and despair. Your story narrated through your own lens can help you discover your purpose through meaning-making of all your hurts and find hope in the midst of your healing.

We're living through such stressful times, it can be hard to function at our best. As our coping skills are stretched thin, struggles once successfully dealt with may become stronger than we can manage. Relationship issues can intensify as tending to our own discomfort takes more energy, leaving less to offer our partner. On top of all this, navigating the mental health world to find a therapist who "gets you" is a chore unto itself! I'm happy to help, if you feel we might be a good fit. I use a combination of Internal Family Systems (IFS) and somatic work (TRM) to help empower, heal, and bring you more fully back to yourself.

It is natural to have moments in life when you feel depressed or anxious, and especially if you are in a certain stage of life which requires more support, or if life simply threw you a curve ball. Everyone needs to be able to set aside time for themselves, process through their experiences, and then work towards identifying what they need and how to get there. I provide a comfortable, safe, non-judgmental space in which to do that work, collaboratively and creatively. I want to empower you and to help you feel like, "I've got this. I can get through it." Because you can.

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.
