I worked as a Parent Facilitator with the Baltimore City Health Department, partnered with the House of Ruth as well as various substance abuse clinics in Maryland.
It is not easy being young, I know, I have been there. It can be painful when no one will listen or care about your problems, they have their own. As a native of Baltimore City, graduate of Baltimore City Schools and a retired Counselor of Baltimore City Schools, I believe I have the expertise to help others conquer obstacles in life. At the Gallery of Minds, we will listen and care. You'll learn how to cope and overcome peer pressure, bullying, anger, depression, trauma and more. If this sounds like the place for you or your child, feel free to contact me.

We know it takes a village to raise a child in this world. I am here to be a part of that support system. Parenting is rewarding, but children don't come with a guidebook on how to address every bump and hurdle along the way. I specialize in early childhood therapy with children 0-5. I utilize education and tools to support you in each step of the treatment process. You may be struggling with behavioral or developmental challenges, sleep hygiene issues, co-parenting challenges, a medical trauma/chronic illness, or family dynamic issues. I am here to partner with you to understand the unique needs of your child.

I also incorporate executive function support and parent coaching to improve communication, build esteem, and problem solve barriers to success at home, work and school.
Difficulty with focus, sleep disturbance, slipping academic or work performance, anger, irritability, low motivation, and conflict with family and friends are signs that something is amiss. At times the source is obvious, such as with divorce or grief, but frequently the underlying issue and the "fix" is elusive. Beginning from an IFS (Internal Family Systems) lens, I support the client in getting to know parts within themselves that drive feelings and choices; parts that strive and parts that hide, ultimately identifying unmet needs, unique strengths, and a capacity for self-led problem solving.

Becoming a parent is a transformative experience that redefines who you are. With many twists and turns, navigating birth and parenthood can feel like a labyrinth. Our world is saturated by myths of motherhood and picture-perfect parenting. Despite the ease of social media, many parents feel disconnected from community. I help birthing people and their families form a supportive village of care to feel nurtured and empowered during this transitional time. Maybe you don’t feel like yourself. Maybe you're facing scary thoughts. Maybe you’re feeling violated, empty, or broken after birth, pregnancy or infant loss. Healing is possible.

Some of my experience includes dealing with ADHD, Asperger's Syndrome and Traits, Parenting Issues, Adoption, Anxiety (including PTSD and OCD), Depression and other Mood Disorders, Marital/Couple Problems, Adult-Teen Developmental Issues and Conflicts, Problems of Early Childhood, Personality Disorders, Transitions in life such as Divorce or Loss, and formal Cognitive and Personality Assessments.
It takes a lot of courage to seek help, especially in a world that unfairly stigmatizes getting psychological services. Lack of understanding of what therapy is and how people can benefit from it prevents some from using professional services to know and understand themselves better, to improve relationships, and to live more meaningful, fulfilling lives regardless of their challenges. Sometimes people have troubling symptoms due to anxiety, depression, and other disorders and need help to address these symptoms and their causes. I use a variety of approaches to help clients. My goal is to empower clients through a healthy, therapeutic relationship.

Parent consultations are an important part of my work with children & adolescents.
By listening to people and paying attention to what develops, I collaboratively assist them to understand feelings, thoughts, body experiences, and behaviors. This may remove barriers to living life to the full. We often create these barriers early in life and then continue them through habitual thought, feeling-management, and relationship patterns. Healing occurs in a safe, new kind of relationship. Within this relationship, people may recognize things they have known and not known. Those who openly share their thoughts, feelings, and experiences (including a hesitation to share certain things) are often able to make progress.

Parenting a child who has temper tantrums is difficult. You may find yourself frequently correcting your child for acting before he/she thinks about what is going on. Raising a child who is diagnosed with autism, developmental delays, or intellectual delays can be hard to manage. Your child may excel at school but then struggles with worry beyond what is appropriate for the situation back at home. Not to mention the worry or depression you may be feeling as the parent trying to juggle everything. It is time to find the help you need.

I use a brief therapy approach. I enjoy working with relationship issues in the family, the workplace, or in your social life. Sometimes couples are not ready to come in together. One partner may come in to work on underlying issues prior to couples therapy. One partner can also make change in patterns alone. I also work with individuals who are facing decisions regarding marriage, divorce, children, work or advanced education. I communicate with clients in a straightforward and open way. Symptoms often reflect longer-standing methods of coping with stress and people, which can be changed, often quickly.
