*My schedule is full so I am not taking new patients at this time* As a licensed psychologist since 1991, I work with adults who struggle with depression, anxiety, relationship problems, eating/body image concerns, parenting issues, and other women's issues. Many people I work with are going through periods of transition, searching for more meaningful relationships, and yearning to have a healthier level of self-acceptance. I use a holistic, integrative, and multiculturally-informed framework to understand the myriad, complex factors that result in emotional distress, physical symptoms, and school, work, or relationship problems.

Through our dialogue, I work to bring to consciousness the fears, conflicts and inhibitions that prevent you from living a fully realized life. In this way, I hope to help you draw on your own inner wisdom in order to create positive change. The following quotation by Rainer Maria Rilke resonates with my perspective on change: "Perhaps everything that frightens us is, in its deepest essence, something helpless that wants our love."

My goal as a therapist is to help Mamas (and women) find their way back- or to a place where they feel (re)connected to their mind, body, and spirit. I believe in empowering mothers and women to reclaim themselves on this journey to healing. I focus on all things women and all things perinatal - which includes women's concerns, relationships, motherhood, issues related to pregnancy and postnatal experiences, postpartum challenges, fertility and reproductive issues, and wellness.

My approach to psychotherapy is holistic and feminist. I believe that mind, body, spirit, community, culture, and institutions are all essentially interwoven into the issues that we face. I don’t think that anyone is broken, and I don’t think that therapy is about fixing yourself. Instead, I believe that people get stuck in undesirable patterns, and therapy is an opportunity to discover new, flexible approaches to outdated ways of relating with ourselves and others. At this time, I am available for working individually with adults, particularly those suffering from depression, anxiety, and trauma-related issues.

We all face challenges throughout our lives. What defines us is how we choose to address the issue. Mental illness is not uncommon but what can be uncommon is having the courage to seek help. Issues surrounding mental health often arise during major transitions whether it be age, school, work, family, or loss. A diagnosis of a serious mental illness should not define you or hold you back. Fighting a mental illness can be exhausting. Don't go this alone. Let's talk about your goals and dreams and get you back on track to living your full life. I will push you to reach your potential but I will also be by your side through it all.

As a queer, Latinx cisgender man, it is my passion to support my LGBTQIA+ and POC community in our own collective liberation. Too often counseling can feel like a non-inclusive space, and my work has focused on providing a healing space where clients feel comfortable being their genuine selves, free from judgment and guilt. Sometimes it feels like many of us move through our day wearing a mask to “fit in,” which is a heavy burden to bear. Together we can work towards removing this mask by helping you tap into what already lies within you - a bit of authenticity, a splash of self-compassion, and a healthy dose of empowerment.

Therapy is not simply the shared space in which our discussions take place, rather it is a decision to embark on a journey of healing, growth and self-discovery. Life often places us in situations that we feel we may not be able to handle alone and it is my belief that we do not have to handle these challenges alone. As your therapist it would be my distinct honor to help you navigate the hardships you face.

**Not accepting new clients at this time** We are so often led to believe that it is weak to feel (or to talk about feeling) sad, lonely, afraid, unsure, overwhelmed, dissatisfied, lost. Shame about these feelings keeps us quiet and alone. True strength is having the courage to show up as our authentic, imperfect self. And only when we show up, lean in, and let others see us can we experience real connection and live more wholeheartedly. Whatever your story, it deserves to be heard. When we share our story in a safe space, it becomes easier to own its painful parts so we may gain the freedom to create and live the life we want.

I am a full time yoga therapist (MS, 2015) and am trained in clinical psychology (MA, 2013), as well as conflict management (MA, 2011).

Psychodynamic Therapists
Psychodynamic therapy in Baltimore, also known as insight-oriented therapy, evolved from Freudian psychoanalysis. Like adherents of psychoanalysis, psychodynamic therapists believe that bringing the unconscious into conscious awareness promotes insight and resolves conflict. But psychodynamic therapy is briefer and less intensive than psychoanalysis and also focuses on the relationship between the therapist and the client, as a way to learn about how the client relates to everyone in their life.

How can I tell if a therapist is right for me?
Therapists in Baltimore are able to work with a wide range of issues and communities, including the BIPOC community in Baltimore. They offer in person sessions as well as Teletherapy in Baltimore

For example, if you're seeking a marriage counselor in Baltimore you'll find that most therapists are trained in marriage counseling or couples counseling in Baltimore and couples therapy. And they welcome families for family counseling in Baltimore or family therapy in Baltimore.
