More time with family , and with ourselves, than we are used to.
Things are unbelievably stressful right now, aren’t they? It might be getting harder to convince yourself that everything’s okay. You might feel less in control of your emotions than you usually do. There is help and support to get you through. As difficult and out of the ordinary as things are right now, it is still the time to work on the anxiety that weighs you down. It is still the time to heal from the trauma(s) you’ve experienced. Whatever difficulty you’ve been thinking you’d like to work on, therapy can still help. And it can help you get through the current situation.

I have had extensive trainings in Polyvagal Theory, Internal Family Systems, Trauma, and Cognitive Behavioral Therapy.
Watching a child explore, learn, and grow is nothing short of amazing. Being able to help facilitate exploration and emotional growth is an honor to be a part of. I specialize working with children, adolescents, families, and parents. I love watching my youngest clients explore the world around them through play and art while providing the tools they need for healthy expression and emotional regulation. My main area of focus is anxiety, emotional dysregulation, oppositional behaviors, stress, self-esteem, life transitions, and parenting skills.

I provide individual and family therapy .
I believe in an individual's desire for self-awareness. I hope to provide a comfortable environment where, as the client, you can explore your choices for the future. When you able to adopt a different view of yourself you gain insight which can make the possibilities endless and the excitement for change contagious. I see individuals who have been working hard and are still struggling to understand why they feel and/or think as they do. I also work with parents who want to do their best for their child(ren) while developing deeper relationships with themselves.

I am trained in individual and family therapy .
I see adults, both male and female, and teens 15 and above. My underlying treatment philosophy is psychodynamic. However, I view my mission as being here to help my clients in whatever way is effective for them. In that sense, I am eclectic, because everyone is individual. What works for one won't necessarily work for another. I believe that therapy is collaborative between the client and therapist, and is based on trust, and through that relationship is where positive results happen. I am convenient to Baltimore City, Baltimore County, Harford County, and AA County. I accept Cigna and Blue Cross PPO.

Psychodynamic therapy enables an individual, couple, or family to stop being seduced by old patterns of behavior, and instead learn to recognize, change, and begin to break free from chaos, fear, and frustration.
Using a psychodynamic and IFS (Parts Work) approach, I provide therapy for individual adults, couples, and families. Patients learn to recognize patterns in their behaviors that are causing them discomfort. Through the therapeutic approach and the therapeutic relationship, patients begin to make meaning of their internal system thus enabling them to utilize new ways of coping with grief, transitions (newly married, divorce, raising children, new job, relocation), anxiety, and past trauma.

My 30 years of experience include working with anxiety, depression, mood disorders, trauma, PTSD, substance abuse, relationship conflicts, self-esteem issues, family , parenting, and divorce, and workplace/school-related issues.
There are times in life when it is difficult to believe that we will ever reach our dreams, hopes, goals, or have the future for which we had hoped. We may be feeling stuck, lonely, and unable to develop or access our wisdom and strengths. Too often, challenging life situations or decisions made in the past tend to have a lasting effect on our lives. I believe that everyone has the capacity to grow, change and heal our relationships with ourselves, our significant others, and those around us.

I am a licensed clinical social worker treating a variety of concerns that bring people into therapy. My areas of focus include parenting, gender and sexuality, intimate relationship growth, and ethical non-monogamy. I believe in acknowledging the intersections of our race, gender, sexuality, education, ability, family history, and social and cultural education. These identities define who we tell ourselves we “should” be. Therapy helps review these facets, determine what works, and practice skills to have effective and realistic ways of relating to the world.

Family Therapy

What do family therapists do?

A family therapist facilitates the process of understanding and improving how a family functions. The therapist will help family members develop empathy for one another. They’ll seek to understand existing patterns, misunderstandings, and conflicts that arise, in order to help the family arrive at a realistic, unified understanding and develop the coping skills they need to build stronger relationships.

How long does therapy for families take to work?

Therapy manifests differently in every family; a common time frame is 12 weekly sessions, but some families may see improvement after just a few weeks. Families should discuss their goals with the therapist at the beginning of the process and periodically revisit those goals to assess their progress together.

How can you encourage a family member to attend family therapy?

You can encourage family members to attend therapy by expressing with both love and concern the challenges you see and explaining how a therapist could help the family navigate those challenges together. An outside perspective can help everyone feel heard, get on the same page, and develop new skills. If family members are still hesitant, it may be helpful to emphasize that family therapy is short-term—it won’t last forever.

Is therapy for families effective?

Family therapy can significantly improve family dynamics and relationships. Research suggests that family therapy can help individuals understand their role in the family, communicate and solve problems together, reduce conflict and draw boundaries when necessary, and develop coping skills for stressors, major life changes, and mental or physical illnesses within the family.
