I am a licensed psychotherapist with almost 15 years of experience working with children, adults, and families. I provide telehealth for clients to grow in their understanding of themselves and others and in how they experience and manage their feelings. Let’s work together to get rid of those blocking beliefs and uncover your full potential.

As parents, you establish the teaching, training and expectations for your child in the first 7 years of their life. After that, you live out what you set up. Parenting is one of the most rewarding and difficult journeys in a person's life and at times, it may become overwhelming. I provide parenting consultations, as well as, counseling, support and education to new and expectant parents.

Therapy is one's personal identified journey of trials, tribulations, highs-and-lows, and uncertainty. Clients who gravitate towards me are those who prefer transparency, engagement, no judgement, and genuine validation and assistance on their road to "who they themselves identify they want to be". Clients who work with me realize that days are difficult, as is change; however, they do not mind the reminders and encouraging sessions that enhance and challenge accountability and resiliency.

A patient wrote this to me: "You are someone who knows the song in my heart, and could sing it back to me when I had forgotten the words." In my over 27 years of psychotherapy practice, I have learned several things: one is, in meeting with patients, to clear my mind (at least to try hard!) of all the theories and clinical orientations I have absorbed and to allow my emotions, mind, body, and considerable life experience to be present in our interactions. [Please note that I do NOT accept CareFirst BlueCHOICE, just PPO and Federal.]

*Note: Not currently accepting new clients.* It is my goal to provide a trauma informed, safe, genuine, and compassionate environment where individuals can learn practical skills and tools to feel better. I use cognitive-behavioral, trauma-focused, and mindfulness therapies that have proven effective both in my own practice and in evidence-based research. This approach can provide an improved sense of psychological well-being, and a strong foundation for a life that is more manageable and peaceful.

I am comfortable working with many different populations with varying levels of issues. Depression, anxiety, trauma, substance use, and military specific stressors are a small cross-section of the issues I treat. I am a sex-positive, kink informed and trauma informed clinician. I am a laid-back person with a robust, and admittedly sometimes immature, sense of humor who is a big believer in radical acceptance. You can expect these things, and many more during our sessions.

People in distress are often wary of talking to someone who is a stranger. The first visit is generally fraught with anxiety. I am adept at teasing out the issues and helping a person (of any age) feel comfortable and understood. I expect that many clients will come to my office with a certain amount of ambivalence about engaging in psychotherapy. Generally, by the time they leave after the first visit, they are eager to return having felt a sense of relief and hope that they are going to be understood and "heard" in a unique way.

Did you struggle to build essential life skills due to growing up without much support or adequate psychological nurturance? Or you were born in a healthy and loving family, but life did not turn as planned? Feeling stuck in life, having lost its purpose, feeling lonely and unable to build or maintain healthy relationships, going through a loss (of a loved one, an opportunity, a job, an ability, or even a dream), all of these can take your energy and prevent you from living your best life. Turning a crisis into an opportunity can be a painful process.

Hi! Welcome! I’m really glad you are here. Counseling can be intimidating and it takes a lot of strength to take this first step toward the life that you want and deserve. I believe that one of the bravest things you can do is to understand your story. My role as a therapist is to create a safe, compassionate, empathetic, and non-judgmental space that allows you to explore, accept, and expand your story. Whether you are going through a change, finding ways to improve your relationships, or have been struggling with trauma all your life, I want you to know that you are not alone and life can be much better!

Do you constantly find yourself asking, "Why does this keep happening to me?!". I can help you discover how you are manifesting your reality by the choices you are making. Most thoughts and behaviors are unconscious, therefore people often find themselves distressed regarding poor choices and feelings of powerlessness in their lives. I can help you make permanent changes in your life by guiding you toward uncovering subconscious motivators of your behaviors. I take an eclectic approach and tailor therapy to best meet your needs.
