Licensed Clinical Professional Counselor / Pronouns: She/Her
I see therapy as an opportunity to explore and grow in unique ways, and I am honored to witness my clients’ journey. I strive to create a warm and supportive space, using collaboration and communication, and a strengths based approach. I am also committed to being culturally sensitive in the care I provide, and also am competent in providing affirming care to LGBTQ individuals.
I work with patients over 18 years of age, and I have experience providing therapy to adults with a variety of concerns, including but not limited to: Anxiety, Depression, Bipolar Disorder, Trauma, and Substance Use Disorders. I am also committed to helping people learn to manage stress, navigate relationship issues, and explore how to integrate self care and compassion into their daily lives.
I earned my Masters in Pastoral Counseling from Loyola University Maryland (formerly Loyola College) in 2009.Because of this training, I use a whole person approach. This would include allowing space for patients to talk about identity factors such as race, ethnicity, and religion, for those patients who have an interest in talking about these aspects of their identity. I also completed extensive training in trauma treatment, and have experience integrating creativity and expressive arts into the therapy environment. I use an eclectic approach, which allows me to meet clients where they are at.
Over the last decade, I have worked in a variety of behavioral health settings, a weight loss clinic, an outpatient pain program, the Baltimore Department of Social Services, and a federal qualified health center.
