Announcement icon I am seeing all clients through video conference at this time. I am only able to work with residents of Maryland and certain other states.
I work with clients to create a safe and affirming relationship so that there is room for healing and growth. My work with each client is unique, however central to my work is respect for your issues, concerns, and the challenges you face in your life. I see therapy as a partnership where we work together to create the changes that you are seeking in your life. I am comforatable working with a wide variety of issues from career and work life to recovering from childhood trauma and abuse.
My work with clients includes a focus on cultural issues including race and ethnicity, sexual orientation and gender identity, spiritual and religious concerns, and family perspectives. I seek to understand and work within the unique perspective that you bring to the world.
Feel free to call or e-mail my office to see if I can be of help to you and the challenges you are facing. I seek to return all calls and e-mails by the end of the next business day. This is a solo practice so you will only be dealing with me, not a staff member.
