I'm an active therapist, believing that we work together to address your issues. I'm here to listen and to help. I'm accepting and non-judgmental. I believe in customizing therapy to fit each unique patient. I don't take any insurance, which means that treatment choices and decisions are decided only by you and me together, working as a team to reach your goals and meet your needs.
I offer a direct, collaborative therapy style, using psychodynamic, humanistic and cognitive approaches. I treat adult individuals and couples experiencing distress from anxiety and depression, significant life transitions and change, difficult relationships, and challenges resulting from cancer and other medical illnesses. In an environment of trust and support, I will help you safely explore your thoughts and feelings, discover new perspectives and develop more effective coping strategies--all with the goal of enhancing your well being.

Accepting new clients! Life often presents us with difficulties and struggles. Sometimes having someone who is willing to listen without judging what you are going through can help you with sorting out your problems and difficulties. Telling your story enables you to come to terms with your current experiences. You may be dealing with difficult life events, feeling sad, anxious or depressed. Therapy can help you to learn coping skills and techniques to solve problems. I encourage you to reach out today to see how I can be of help to you.
Are you struggling with anxiety, depression, interpersonal relationships and/or life transitions? Are you seeking to gain overall insight on your behaviors to improve your emotional and mental well-being? If you are seeking help with understanding communication and interpersonal skills with regard to insight on relational and attachment patterns, I am here to help. The first step of reaching out for help is the hardest. I have diverse experience working with children, adolescents and adults. I believe the most important aspect of treatment is within the therapeutic rapport.
Life is full of feelings whether we like it or not. If you are struggling to identify your emotions and what they mean, you are not alone. Trauma, transitions, and a history of a lack of emotional guidance can make it feel as though you are grasping at straws. If you have children of your own you want to teach, this can be even more overwhelming. No matter the reason for this sense of overwhelm, you do not have to go through this journey of self compassion alone. I am a firm believer that we all have a “toolbox” of coping skills. Some may be empty, some filled with rusty tools, and others are just out of reach.
I work with both individuals and couples/family members. I assist clients who are having problems in relationships - marital, premarital, parent-child. I work with people who are seeking to change destructive patterns in their interactions or communication. Each may feel his/her needs are ignored or that their partner doesn't understand them. They repeat the same arguments with predictable patterns of communication and behavior. Each may feel alone in the relationship, and believe that things can't improve. They would like to improve their connection but are unsure about how to do it.
Lately things have been really confusing. You're not spending as much time as you used to with friends and family. Maybe you are feeling lonely, or maybe you prefer being alone right now. Everything just feels like too much. You aren't sleeping well. You are afraid no one will understand what's going through your head. You used to enjoy life but recently something has changed and you're not sure how to get back to your old self. You want to move forward from here, but you don't know where to start.

Licensed Clinical Professional Counselor, LCPC, LCADC
Thank you for looking at my ad and considering the process of psychotherapy/counseling for your life. Many of my new clients have spoken about the anxiety they experienced when they decided to seek additional support through a therapist. I have come to recognize that this anxiety mostly comes from each client really hoping they can find the right match for themselves. Hopefully this brief biography will facilitate your decision about whether we could match up nicely. Please review my website which will provide you with a greater understanding of my experiences.
I am a licensed, board-certified, clinical counselor, certified in Expressive Arts through the Person- Centered Expressive Arts Institute founded by Natalie Rogers. Using an integrative approach, I combine traditional talk therapy with mindfulness, creative expression, CBT, and DBT skills to support you in your treatment. I use EMDR protocol to teach trauma-informed strategies to self-regulate and address trauma. I will meet you where you are through empathy, compassion, and congruence to help generate insight that can lead to increased healthy coping and desired change. I consider it an honor to be part of my client's journeys.
We all go through difficult times and having someone who will listen, offer support and give guidance can be invaluable. We will work together to discover the barriers that may be keeping you from living your best life. I am passionate about helping my clients recognize their strengths in order to feel a sense of power and control in their lives.
I work with adolescents, adults, and seniors experiencing depression, anxiety, and issues related to parenting, trauma, technology/social media use, peer conflict, intimate partner violence/conflict, and major life transitions (eg. first-time parenting, leaving for college, returning to work, divorce, empty nest). I created and taught a graduate-level course at Johns Hopkins on social media's effect on mental health. My clinical training focused on survivors and offenders of sexual and domestic violence. I was awarded a fellowship for my work with teen moms on parenting, life skills, and college readiness.
Sometimes life is hard. You may feel stressed out trying to do it all, and your brain just keeps going and going. Perhaps it even keeps you up at night. You may be a parent with a career, spouse, and kids, and it's a struggle to find time for yourself with all that's going on in life. Being home more these last few years can bring new challenges to your relationships. If this sounds familiar, I can help. As a marriage and family therapist, I help women overcome trauma, deal with every day stress, and improve their relationships.
