Over the past 20 years, I've had the opportunity to work with children and adolescents. In the last 10 years I've increased my scope to include young and older adults. Anxiety, depression, trauma and other behavioral challenges have made up the majority of my work. In each of these situations a strength-based, goal-centric and client-empowered approach has yielded success. In my experience my clients have simply wanted to feel better about their place in life while re-learning to hope once again. My work in schools and in practice have taught me that my success begins from a place of genuine care for my client's well-being.

In addition to be being distractable and impulsive, children with ADHD frequently posses many unique strengths: including creativity, resilience, and the ability to "hyper-focus." To begin harnessing the giftedness associated with ADHD, we develop customized treatments that focus on maximizing your child 's unique learning style, interests and other natural talents. Our goal is to partner with you to put in place systems that develop skills & strategies, and make behavioral changes that improve your child 's performance at school and at home -- so that your child is empowered to thrive and not just survive ADHD.

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.

So far, I have worked as a Case Manager for individuals with Developmental Disabilities, Queer Affirming Therapist, Crisis Counselor and Child Protective Services Social Worker.
I am the daughter of immigrant parents who migrated to the U.S from Liberia. My passion for the mental health field began at a very young age as I began to recognize that there are so many levels to intersecting identities that a person can possess. The experiences I have had as a first-generation American coupled with witnessing all of the complex issues everyone faces allowed me to realize that I wanted to create an open and non-judgmental space for all individuals. Ultimately, I wish to continue to always have the willingness to constantly learn from others life experiences.

Since childhood, I've had a strong desire to help people. That desire grew to helping people identify what they need to create a fulfilling and enriching life through self discovery and acceptance. As a licensed therapist in Maryland and D.C., certified infant and early childhood mental health provider for over 10 years, I understand that in creating the life you want, sometimes, healing and restoration must take place.

In my work with teens, I work collaboratively with parent and teen to address problems and, if needed, improve the relationship between parent and child .
"As long as she denies her own agency, real change is unlikely because her attention will be directed toward changing her environment rather than herself." (Irvin Yalom). When problems show up in life, the solution isn't always clear. As your therapist, I will work with you to bring about needed change in feelings, thoughts, or behaviors. I will listen to what you want from therapy and together we will likely identify patterns that play a role in your current difficulty.
