I am passionate about helping people shift their perspectives and gain insight to feel more confident in themselves and their relationships. I emphasize a person’s resilience and work to empower my clients to explore and identify the tools within themselves to overcome challenges. I also believe that helping clients unburden themselves from unhelpful thinking patterns can be transformative.
There is no one-size-fits-all when it comes to therapy. Whether you’re navigating a crisis, seeking ways to create a more fulfilling daily life or wanting to maintain progress you have made in previous therapy, I believe in meeting you where you are. I am eclectic in the therapeutic modalities that I use to tailor my approach to a client’s unique and personal needs. I always come from a client-centered and strengths-based approach, utilizing tools from CBT, DBT, mindfulness, psychodynamic and crisis intervention. I am dedicated to creating an inclusive therapeutic environment that respects and celebrates diversity.
Prior to joining BCS, I worked as an outpatient therapist at a non-profit as well as at a community crisis center, responding to those in emergency mental health situations. I received my undergraduate degree from the University of Maryland, College Park, and my Master in Social Work from the University of Maryland, Baltimore, where I specialized in Clinical Behavioral Health.
When I’m not in the therapy room, I enjoy spending time with my family, going on walks with my Australian Labradoodle and attending yoga and pilates classes.
I am accepting new clients virtually and in person.
