I am a Licensed Professional Counselor who provides individual and couples counseling. I earned my Bachelor of Science degree in Psychology from the University of Maryland, College Park and my Master of Arts and Master of Education degrees in Psychological Counseling from Teachers College, Columbia University. I have over ten years of experience working with diverse populations suffering from anxiety, depression, PTSD, trauma, grief and loss, and behavioral and stress related issues. I also work with women specific issues, including juggling work and parenting responsibilities, relationship challenges, burnout, and emotional and sexual concerns.
I believe in helping others find their joy and learn to choose themselves in navigating life’s demands and challenges. Through a supportive, compassionate, and trusting relationship and environment, I hope to help clients feel empowered to reclaim control and make positive changes in their lives. Clients learn to express, explore, understand, and accept underlying emotions, thoughts, and behaviors without judgment and with renewed compassion for themselves and others.
In supporting my clients, I operate from a client-centered and strength-based approach with a genuine regard for each client. I further employ a variety of treatment modalities and tailor to the individual needs of clients, including psychodynamic counsel, cognitive behavioral therapy, solution focused therapy, motivational interviewing, and mindfulness practices. I also have training in trauma focused cognitive behavioral therapy and EMDR.
