I am a Licensed Clinical Professional Counselor (LCPC) in Maryland providing virtual psychotherapy to adults 18 and over. I specialize in working with anxiety and stress management, relationship issues, life transitions, trauma, loss and bereavement, depression and anger management. My passion is helping women build insight to proactively improve their lives. Many of my clients are BIPOC women who are highly successful perfectionists and people pleasers who struggle to find work/life balance, deeper purpose, and joy.
I utilize a variety of modalities – cognitive behavioral, interpersonal, strength-based and person-centered. My integrative approach helps clients develop strategies to manage distressing emotions; identify, challenge and replace automatic negative and distorted thoughts; and modify unhealthy and destructive behaviors and patterns. Collaboratively, we will work toward creating a life that aligns with your core values and purpose.
In addition to providing talk therapy, I am a Basic Accelerated Resolution Therapy (ART) Practitioner. ART is a brief and effective treatment using rapid eye movement and voluntary image replacement to treat trauma, PTSD, depression, anxiety and other mental health challenges.
Clients describe me as warm, empathic, direct, and non-judgmental. My philosophy on counseling is, “Being a therapist doesn’t mean that I get to sit high and look down on my clients. Nor does it mean I have all the answers. What it does mean, however, is that I sit with them eye-level, in whatever space they are in, without judgment, giving them my best until change happens.”
