Embarking on the journey of therapy is both challenging and exhilarating. My commitment is to foster a secure, supportive, and transformative space for each client. I specialize in assisting adults facing diverse challenges, such as relationship issues, trauma, Perinatal Mood and Anxiety Disorders, anxiety, and fertility struggles. Additionally, I find fulfillment in collaborating with individuals who seek to explore and comprehend identity issues, break free from detrimental relationship patterns, and enhance overall self-awareness.

In our sessions, I aim to provide a compassionate environment that encourages personal growth and insights. Together, we can navigate your unique path toward healing and self-discovery.

My Approach

I am interactive and supportive in my style of therapy; working collaboratively with each client to identify therapeutic goals, subside bothersome symptoms and understand experiences and beliefs that underlie these symptoms to increase each individuals fulfillment in life.

I find myself to be relatable and genuine, what you see is what you get! I work on being honest with my clients and myself, hoping to cultivate change through a supportive relationship.  I often use humor in sessions and find that the process does not always have to be so "heavy."  Identifying if I am a good fit for you is important to our work together. If I am not able to meet your needs, I will work with you to find a therapist that is able to do so and make sure you can have a smooth transition!

 It takes courage to seek out help, and I want to be part of your journey to feeling better about yourself, your family, and the world around you.   Maybe you are having conflicting feelings about life, or feel overwhelmed with the day to day aspects of being a parent.  I want to help you identify the parts of your life that are troubling you, and help you find the strength to become more self-aware, grow as a person, and regain your confidence.  How will we do this?  Let’s start by working together, as a team, to help you rise up.  In our sessions, I will be supportive and candid, challenging and encouraging.  I build a relationship with my clients to give them a safe environment to express themselves, be truthful with themselves, and identify and achieve their self-created goals.  I want my clients to feel confident in our relationship, and that strength will lead to not only greater depth of discovery, but ultimately greater clarity and progress.  I will not always tell you what you want to hear – therapy is a place to discuss uncomfortable feelings and situations, but I promise you that we will work through them together.  My hope is to motivate you to ultimately ask your own questions, find your own answers and reach your own happiness.  

 

My area of focus is in perinatal/maternal mental health, parenting, and children’s wellbeing.  My interests in these areas have come from years of one-on-one and group counseling work with a variety of populations.   I also have experience working with clients with anxiety, depression, and family dynamics.  I have worked at Kennedy Krieger Institute in the Neuropsychology department and Autism Center.  I also have worked in Baltimore County Schools as a School Psychologist, working with students and parents to improve academic success and family relationships.  Being in a variety of settings has given me the insight into helping children succeed, and working with parents to navigate the school system.  I also have extensive experience in interpreting childhood diagnoses, and helping parents adapt, and sometimes cope with this knowledge.  Being a mom and “bonus mom,” I have experiences that may also help you in your parenting journey.  Ultimately, no matter what path brought you here, I look forward to working with you to be more mindful, successful, and joyful.

Asking for help when you are struggling is incredibly hard. Maybe you have tried therapy in the past and it was not a good fit. I strive with each of my clients to meet them where they are emotionally and work with them to achieve their goals. I work with adults struggling with depression, anxiety, ADHD, trauma, relationship stressors, and life transitions.

My Approach

I foster a supportive, collaborative relationship that brings about real change. At the same time, I try to bring humor and laughter into the therapy space, often through nerdy pop culture references. 

I specialize in working with teens, college students, young professionals, neurodivergent individuals, and people who have suffered TBI. I am EMDR trained and am able to provide this intervention both in person and through telehealth. I am an LGBTQ+ affirming therapist and strive to create a safe space for all of my clients.

I apply a holistic, trauma-informed approach, viewing each person as a whole and supporting their growth toward their desired destination. In our sessions, I strive to foster open and honest conversations that lead to meaningful growth and development. Therapy, to me, is a partnership. I'm interested in learning about you, your interests, and what makes you, you.
