About me


Greetings, I am a licensed clinical professional counselor in the state of Maryland. My experience includes over one decade of assisting persons related to career difficulties, the loss of a loved one to suicide, the loss of sight and sound, life changes (planned and unplanned), criminal justice involvement (including sex offenses), moving forward after being a victim of a crime, caring for elderly parents as well as loved ones of all ages who have special needs. In addition, I am experienced in assisting persons who have the Highly Sensitive Person (HSP) trait/ Sensory Processing Sensitivity, need help establishing boundaries, and in identifying techniques for dealing with people different from themselves (politically, economically, etc.) as well as with those who are simply difficult.

While I can assist clients with almost any life circumstance, I am the counselor for the client who wants to take a goal oriented approach to better mental health. My focus is to empower clients through their circumstance by affording organization, strategy and a host of therapeutic interventions.

This means, if you decide to work with me, you are ready to build an action plan, set goals and do homework.


My motto: better is possible. Better coping, outcomes, focus, relationships, etc. is possible. 



I use a combination of cognitive behavior therapy, (which involves assessing thoughts, feelings, and behaviors then developing ways to make changes in those areas to feel and function better), Solution Focused Therapy (focusing more on how to move forward instead of how an issue arose), Rational Emotive therapy (a direct approach that includes teaching and supporting) as well as the client-centered approach (meaning that I help you find solutions on your own). Additionally, case management is a large part of my work resulting in resource recommendations to help you meet your goals.


I have a master's degree in Rehabilitation Counseling. I served as a counselor to persons who were court involved. I was an employment union chapter representative assisting people in processing their emotions and developing action plans to confront workplace injustices. I served as a hotline and mobile crisis team counselor, during which I met with clients in the community. In addition, I facilitated a support group for persons who lost loved ones to suicide.



I am here to empower and help you, not judge you. I desire to help you eradicate limiting thoughts, feelings, and behaviors so you can achieve your goals.


I am available during the day and evenings. In addition, I reserve weekly time slots upon request. Further, I respond to all correspondence sent Monday through Thursday within 24 hours. For correspondence sent Friday through Sunday, I respond by Monday.

I encourage regular text communication between sessions. I offer session types; video sessions are offered upon request.

I finally found a very good Christian therapist who actually understands and listens. She gives me enough time to say everything that I need to say. She reminds me how important I even when I don’t feel like it. She is a very positive person, and empathetic. Bridgette is the best therapist ever.

She is amazing. I had been hesitating to find a new therapist for over a decade. Could never find someone that didn't say "why are you depressed?" I feel like I am talking to a friend with Bridgette. We have real talk, small talk and I gotten to know her through the process. I look forward to my weekly calls.

She is incredibly patient and very easy to talk to. She creates a comfortable atmosphere for you to feel safe speaking on just about anything. I would highly recommend, especially as a young black woman.

Bridgette is a great therapist who has taken the time to listen and get to really hear me. I appreciate her insights and appreciate the support she has given me in particularly tough times and in times when I have had emotional room to stretch myself and grow.
