Trained in multiple therapeutic approaches, I take an integrative collaborative approach to therapy, individualizing the treatment to best facilitate my patients’ growth and positive change. My style combines warmth, empathy, humor, and a deep respect for the individuals I treat. I have worked for over 20 years in the Baltimore Metropolitan and Washington, D.C. area providing therapy to adults, children (age 3 and older), adolescents, couples and families of diverse backgrounds, but just joined the Greater Baltimore Counseling Center in 2017. I have expertise in treating depression, anxiety, post-traumatic stress disorder, relationship issues, parenting issues and chronic pain. I strongly believe in providing culturally sensitive care and LGBTQ affirming care.
I obtained my Master’s degree in 1995 and my Doctoral degree in Clinical Psychology in 2000 from the Catholic University of America in Washington, D.C. I also have Bachelor of Arts degrees in English and Psychology from Williams College in Massachusetts. I have lived most of my life in the Baltimore area, graduating from Western High School in Baltimore City.
