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 Mondays through Thursdays during the day and evenings and some Fridays during the day. In addition, I reserve weekly time slots for clients upon request. 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 communication between sessions.

My sessions with Bridgette were very helpful. Needing some help is one thing but taking that step was something I found difficult, yet after my first chat with Bridgette I was so glad I did it. I am coping with my situation much better now and I will not hesitate to call upon her again should I feel the need.

She is wonderful! She takes time to ask questions and offers me, realistic advice, and tips. She then takes her advice and puts it into real life situations to help me better understand! I would recommend her to any friend or family, or anybody that I meet! She is knowledgeable, and all around wonderful!
