My treatment modalities include evidence-based interventions such as DBT, CBT , ACT and Mindfulness.
I believe one of the bravest things we can do is begin to understand our stories. Our minds and bodies react to trauma in a defensive way. The human mind is uniquely designed to defend against the memories of scary events, yet sometimes those defense mechanisms end up causing ongoing pain unnecessarily. Feelings of anger, shame, anxiety and depression can keep one stuck in an endless loop of suffering. Thankfully, it doesn’t have to stay that way. Together, we can approach your journey toward healing, empowering you to engage in your life and self-care. I have been in practice for many years and have seen the benefit of this healing

My orientation is focused, practical and brief or strategic intervention. When indicated, treatment can be longer-term. Treatment varies from conventional "talking" or cognitive /behavioral therapy to the use of experiential, Gestalt, hypnotic/imagery strategies. Respecting clinical and professional parameters, I use techniques that are flexible, creative, and constructed to match the client, her/his "world" and to meet treatment objectives. At times, I will offer treatment as an adjunct to one's primary therapy in order to expedite progress.

Are you overwhelmed with the seemingly never ending curveballs life throws your way? Juggling multiple tasks and relationships can truly feel unbearable. Therapy creates a safe space to unpack, and gain skills and new perspectives to help you have more control over your life. There is no right or wrong way to start the journey. It simply begins with where you are today, and working together towards the best version of you. Let's break unhealthy thought patterns, and create new and effective behaviors. Let's identity and maximize your strengths and improve your sense of self.

I specialize in treating PTSD, anxiety, and depression with somatic and cognitive -behavioral interventions.
Mental health and relationship issues are all too common and we each have our own unique way of experiencing them. Therapy is a place to realign this weight we carry and build a better relationship with our challenges. I provide a space for this exploration, one where you can get personal and vulnerable, laugh and cry, sometimes even curse and yell, and also informational and straight to the point. Together, we would do this by building trust and learning how our body-mind connection impacts our mental health.

Through CBT ( Cognitive Behavioral Therapy) we’ll identify distortions in emotions, behaviors, and thoughts, so that we can view challenging situations more clearly and respond to them in a more effective way.
Before your eyes even open your mind is on overdrive, your thoughts are spinning, and you start your day already trying to manage this gnawing, aching feeling that your life is not heading in the right direction right now. Fear, worry, dread, racing heart, racing thoughts, sweaty palms... Anxiety! It's exhausting. It consumes you, your thoughts, emotions, and body. Whether you are struggling with anxiety in your relationship, anxiety stemming from a past event like loss of a loved one, or just tired of feeling revved up all the time, I can help you feel calm, clear, and in control again.

Cognitive Behavioral, Person Centered and Trauma Focused Therapies are all modalities I have been shaped to use due to the heavy influence from the diverse positions I've held.
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.

I primarily utilize Cognitive Behavior Therapy and Solution Focused Therapy techniques.
Life challenges us with ups and downs – some expected and others not. These unexpected events or life transitions challenge our abilities to cope or understand our sense of self or purpose. At times we all need extra support to navigate these challenges. I welcome people dealing with depression, anxiety, stress, trauma, grief and loss. I also specialize in working with people born outside of the U.S. – on issues such as dual-identity, feelings of isolation or loneliness, the stress of adapting to varying cultural expectations, and inter-generational conflict and misunderstanding.

I can be described as eclectic when it comes to techniques, while my foundation for consumer care is rooted in mindfulness and cognitive behavioral therapy.
My goal is to empower, teach effective coping mechanism, and help the consumer develop a better understanding of self. I have over seven years of experience in the behavioral health field. While treating individuals for medically assisted treatment, substance abuse, and process addictions ( examples: gambling, shopping, pornography), I came to understand the importance of treating co-occurring disorders ( examples: anxiety, depression,PTSD). Therefore, I obtained a M.S in Counseling from The Johns Hopkins University.

Honesty. Vulnerability. Courage. If you are reading this right now, you are probably looking to make some positive changes in your life. It takes someone that is truly honest with themselves to reach out when they need help. It takes vulnerability to talk about it. It takes courage to follow through. Sometimes we may feel stuck in life and we come to a bridge that we need to cross. Are you looking for a therapist that is real and genuine that can assist you in crossing this bridge?

Cognitive Behavioral (CBT) Therapists

How does cognitive behavioral therapy work?

Cognitive behavioral therapy works by exploring how your thoughts affect your emotions and experiences. CBT helps you identify distortions in your thinking. For example, you may tend to jump to the worst case scenario (catastrophizing) or think in extremes (all-or-nothing thinking). A therapist can teach you how to push back against those thoughts to ultimately change your feelings and behavior for the better. They can also provide coping skills to better deal with stressors and challenges.

When do I know to seek treatment with cognitive behavioral therapy?

It’s reasonable to consider cognitive behavioral therapy if you struggle to manage difficult emotions or behaviors to such an extent that you are not getting the most out of life on a day-to-day basis. If you want a shorter term, concrete, skills-based approach, CBT is a great option. (By contrast, other types of therapy may devote more time to exploring your past and its effects.) The decision to seek CBT also depends on the condition you’re treating; CBT is an effective treatment for anxiety, depression, trauma, and many other disorders.

How can I find a cognitive behavioral therapist for someone else?

To find a cognitive behavioral therapist for someone else, you may want to begin by discussing the person’s problem, researching cognitive behavioral therapy, and assessing whether the approach is the right fit. You could then reach out to a few cognitive behavioral therapists in this directory, explain the scenario, have a consultation with those available, and determine who could be a good match.

Why is CBT such a popular form of therapy?

CBT has become a popular form of therapy because it is effective and accessible. Robust research has demonstrated that CBT is an effective treatment for many mental health conditions. And CBT can be learned in relatively few sessions, which means that many people can engage in the process, afford it, and see results quickly. It involves learning concrete skills such as disputing unhelpful thoughts; these skills can also be taught and spread widely.
