Administrative Director / Director of First Responder Care / Licensed Clinical Professional Counselor
I am a Licensed Clinical Professional Counselor (LCPC) and I graduated from Loyola University Maryland with a Master of Science in Counseling Psychology in 2011 and joined GBCC in 2013. My work has involved crisis care, hospital care, and outpatient counseling as well as program management.
As a therapist, I find it important to be both direct and empathetic to help clients with their challenges. In addition to this, I hope to help clients gain practical skills while exploring things they may not have been comfortable looking at before entering counseling. I use an intergrated treatment approach combining cognitive behavioral and psychodynamic theories while focusing on the importance of interpersonal relationships, coping, motivation, and physical well being. I also have specialized training in treating Trauma including EMDR therapy.
I come from a law enforcement family and have extensive experience in Critical Incident Stress Management (CISM) and assisting law enforcement in peer support practices working with a police based crisis intervention team. I specialize in working with law enforcement and first responders, trauma, grief, and men’s issues.
In addition to my clinical practice, I provide oversight and management of administrative functions and First Responder Care Line of Greater Baltimore Counseling Center
