About Me

As a therapist, I can understand the anxiety and fear surrounding your decision to seek therapy for either yourself; your child or other loved one. I would like to partner with you as you navigate your world. I have a passion for working with children, adolescents and their families who have problems at home, school or their community, as well as, adults. I have an understanding of adoption and foster care, multi cultural families and identity.

As a therapist, I provide an eclectic approach to counseling, with a belief that in order to understand the present, one must understand his or her past. I operate from a strengths-based perspective because I believe both children and adults are resilient and given the right tools, can solve their own problems.

I've received specialized training and certification as an Adoption Competent Therapist through The Center for Adoption Support and Education, located in Burtonsville, MD. I want to make sure I meet your needs. Please make sure you message me directly regarding availability.
