About Me

Hello! I am a licensed Marriage and Family Therapist, with 18 years of experience counseling individual teens and adults.
Please note that I am only working with teen clients at this time.
I have trained and practiced extensively as a cognitive-behavioral therapist and also have a passion for mindfulness-based approaches for greater well-being. I particularly enjoy working with teens - they have so much wisdom but also can experience a lot of pressure/stress. It is my joy to assist and support them as they navigate many roles (student, child, friend) and life transitions (school changes, moving into adulthood).
As a recovering worrier and perfectionist, I find great peace and joy in Eastern and Western spiritual wisdom, and I enjoy sharing this with others.
In counseling, I support people in listening to/trusting their intuition; practicing more self-compassion; enjoying more positive, harmonious relationships; and finding meaning and opportunity in challenging experiences. I offer a holistic and collaborative approach to counseling.
I have a passion and specialty in assisting people who are experiencing anxiety disorders (generalized anxiety, social anxiety, and phobias, for example).
I also enjoy helping those who are seeking deeper contentment or meaning in their lives.
Most of my clinical experience has been counseling teens and adults in outpatient settings (group and private practice). I have also worked in intensive outpatient programs, providing cognitive-behavioral and mindfulness therapy to those experiencing depression and/or anxiety.
I am trained in a dream interpretation model developed at the University of Maryland, for those interested in using their dreams to better understand and enhance their waking lives.
