As someone in recovery and with a chronic illness myself, I've not just helped others.
When was the last time you felt truly heard? Life can feel as though you're stuck in a maze without a map or sense of purpose. You may feel broken, alone, or depressed, but you're not. I've successfully helped clients work through life's challenges, learn effective coping skills, and view the present and future in a realistic, positive way. I've also helped clients with chronic illness maximize their quality of life and reach their goals, such as returning to work or school, or being a better parent or spouse. We'll set up a plan that meets your current needs, then empower you to reach your goals, together.

As a hospice social worker for many years, I have extensive experience in working with grief and loss issues, bereavement, family dynamics and challenges connected to caregiving, aging, dementia and chronic illness .
"A journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step". For many people therapy represents a first step toward changing their lives for the better. Life's challenges and unexpected obstacles can create stress, anxiety, depression, and relationship conflict. I work collaboratively with individuals, couples and families to help them weigh options, increase self-awareness, change destructive habits and pay closer attention to their feelings and behaviors. My office provides a warm, compassionate and non-judgmental environment that allows clients to feel safe and to genuinely express themselves.

I love working with college and graduate students, professionals, parents of young children, folks living with ADHD, and folks living with chronic illness who are seeking greater work-life balance, belonging, and significance.
Now accepting new telehealth clients! Please e-mail me. Seeking support is a courageous act of self-love. I would love to explore the possibility of working together. Clients often come in with symptoms of depression and anxiety and feel disconnected from themselves and others. My hope is to build a trusting relationship where you can explore the emotional obstacles that are preventing you from reaching your goals, and to help you identify the underlying emotions motivating behaviors such as hurt, sadness, fear, loss, and loneliness. My clients report feeling listened to, understood, and empowered.

I work with adults and older adolescents who are dealing with anxiety and depression that interferes with their ability to maximize their progress at work and school and limits satisfying family and personal relationships. In addition, I find that life transitions can trigger emotional crises, but they also offer the opportunity for people to develop better strategies that can improve old patterns that have been unsuccessful in resolving problems in the past. Other areas of focus have included working on parenting strategies, marital relationships, grief and loss, and the impact of chronic illness on one's emotional life.

My approach is to help you to maximize your wellness and functionality. Life happens – chronic illness and pain, infertility, divorce, etc. My goal is to help you adjust to your new ‘normal’ and to restore your mental health to a place where you can cope and function effectively regardless of circumstances. Using a variety of therapies and relaxation and stress management techniques, the goal is to have you incorporate these "coping skills" in daily life with the goal of autonomy and self-reliance.

My goal is to help patients learn to be responders and to be in charge of themselves. Throughout treatment, a functional medicine approach is employed. Care collaboration is valued. Patients with cognitive, emotional, and behavioral challenges benefit from a variety of cognitive behavioral, neurobehavioral, and psychophysiological modalities. Patients with such conditions as emotional and physical trauma, chronic pain, addictions, brain injuries and disorders (autism, Asperger's, ADD/ADHD, motor and balance challenges, for example), sleep disorders, anxiety, and depression are treated. Individuals with neurological, autoimmune, metabolic, endocrinological, and other complex medical conditions find that the treatment modalities promote healing.

It's hard to know how to choose a counselor. I'm happy to meet for an hour or two at no charge to make sure it is a good match. Be aware that I accept Maryland and Federal Workers' Compensation. It starts with feeling at ease with someone, and feeling understood. I'm willing to be helpful for people who struggle with addiction, but I may need people to see an additional counselor for more focused help on this. One's thinking and beliefs are important, and certainly there is an emotional component. I find that people feel a lot better when they feel their lives are moving forward.

Living with purpose, meaning and happiness calls for self-compassion as you work to heal and grow. I believe we each have the innate ability for personal development that is enhanced when we are in a safe and supportive relationship. It can be hard to ask for help so I work to establish a strong, trusting relationship where needs, experiences and goals can be explored and worked on without fear of being judged. I work with adults experiencing a broad range of concerns including anxiety, depression, stress, trauma, relationship issues, attention/concentration issues, and changing life circumstances.
