Human interaction is powerful - and we often are unaware of the impact of our experiences until we speak them aloud to an understanding ear. As a therapist, I strive to create a safe, affirming space so that we can explore issues and address problems together, working from your perspective. I work with adults and adolescents who have experienced grief and bereavement, childhood trauma, anxiety and depression, chronic illness, identity-based discrimination and life transitions - as well as those who are caregivers, exploring gender and/or sexuality, or are having difficulty at work. I am also trained in EMDR.

I work with teens and adults who are gender expansive, gender non-conforming, nonbinary, or transgender, as well as those who are considering their own sexuality and sexual orientation.
What will it feel like when you come into full understanding of yourself? How do we cope with all that is unfolding day to day in this world? How can you feel more free? As a Black trans person, I've grappled with these questions and I have a desire to help my community through the process as well. Healing can come in the form of therapeutic relationship. Healing can be uplifted by somebody who is always on your side. Clarity can be found when you have another person reflecting back your words over time, the themes that emerge.

I have experience providing individual and group mental health services to children, adults, and families.
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.

Flow is seen as easy movement through life, but flow is found within our challenges too. Discomfort can be a catalyst to neuroplasticity & growth. Traumatic stress from past & present can overwhelm our natural rhythms & balance. Connecting to body and intuitive experience leads us along the path of healing. I help clients navigate their routes to wellness & authentic embodiment with a well exercised sense of humor, grace for self/others & common sense tools. I work to co-create & hold space for clients to understand & release trauma, from ancestral to individual, grounded in systems perspectives for de-pathologizing mental health.

Reaching out for help when our lives become unmanageable or challenging can seem overwhelming and even insurmountable at times. Whether trauma, anxiety, or relational - healing is not linear, there is an ebb and flow we must experience to find our true selves. Sitting in transitional moments of emotion as we process memories and experiences is often considered the most important part of the therapeutic journey. It is in these moments we find clarity, knowledge, deep meaning, love, and strength. These moments become the catalyst for change.

I also have experience and training in mindfulness, trauma-focused CBT, child and adolescent trauma, and EMDR therapy. I have also completed population-specific trainings relating to gender, sexuality, racism and oppression. I understand that many mental health challenges cannot be separated from social, environmental, and political contexts, and seek to challenge dominant narratives which negatively impact the ways people come to see themselves. I believe in the power of community.

As a queer and trans identified therapist, I personally understand how painful it can be to go to someone for support and be met with microaggressions, rejection, or outright hostility because of your marginalized identity. Therapy can be a transformative tool of self-discovery and a place to collaboratively develop a roadmap to a life filled with deep meaning and joy. But if your therapist does not understand or accept crucial parts of who you are, it can be deeply damaging and disheartening. If you have had experiences like these, I may be a good fit to provide you with the culturally competent therapy you deserve.

With the demands of everyday life, our own emotional demands can often go unmet- causing pain, discomfort, bitterness, and frustration. Taking a step back from the responsibilities pulling us in all directions to closely examine our emotions and relationships can feel impossible, uncomfortable, or even intolerable. But if you're interested in pursuing therapy, you may have already realized the discomfort of things remaining "stuck" is worth trading for the discomfort that comes with growth. If you want to make changes and don't know where to start, talking it through with an empathic therapist can help.

Sometimes, core parts of who we are fall outside of what is considered normal or acceptable. It can feel impossible to understand yourself. You might feel invisible or wonder if you’re really the problem. You know that hiding these parts of yourself doesn’t feel right and isn’t sustainable. At the same time, you question whether it’s worth all the pain that might come from fully exploring and expressing yourself without hiding your identity, isolating from others, or masking. You may already have a strong sense of your identity and know what would help but feel that it's not accessible or possible.

Teletherapy
Teletherapy and Online counseling have grown enormously as a medium for therapy since the advent of social distancing. Most therapists are happy to provide sessions by video or phone.

All professionals are licensed to provide video therapy to clients within the State in which they hold their license. Cross State licensing exists, but is rare.

So if you're a client in Maryland, this list of teletherapists are licensed to provide therapy to you online (by phone, video or text based chat) because they are within your state. They are sorted nearest to furthest, with professionals in Maryland listed first.

Teletherapy via phone or video can be very similar to conventional in person sessions. The message is the same, even if the medium is different. There are some advantages in the form of convenience, lack of travel and being in comfort of your own home. Set against those, professionals find it more difficult to read non-verbal signals of their clients, and you may find you yourself can be more easily distracted.
