****Online therapy available ***** New Beginnings Restoration, was established to help individuals & families be restored to their desired state. Clients stated that I provide a safe, accepting, honest, comfortable & insightful therapeutic environment where they were able to grow, heal & move forward in life. Whether you feel worried, depressed, anxious, confused, angry or indifferent about challenges in your life you can change & get the support you need. Therapy is not always the easiest step but it can help you cope when you've been diagnosed with a mental illness, grieving the loss of a love one or relationship.
I specialize in helping with trauma, neglect, physical & sexual abuse, PTSD, depression, anxiety, crisis intervention, disabilities, life transitions, loss & grief, self-esteem, chronic illnesses, oppositional defiance & mood disorders. I have specialized training in Trauma-Focused Cognitive therapy and at the Child Welfare Academy at the Univ. of Maryland.
I have experience helping individuals and families in the U.S, South Africa, Peru, the Bahamas, Haiti and other countries. I was a forensic social worker, treatment foster care worker and a counselor at a domestic violence shelter before becoming a LCSW 10 years ago.
