About Me

With over 20 years of experience as a Licensed Clinical Social Worker and Counselor, I have in-depth experience in assisting individuals in working through the daily stressors of life that impact one's emotional, psychological and social well-being. These stressors historically influence how we think, feel and act. I am highly invested in the collaborative process to address and overcome these barriers. When these barriers are not addressed, they have a huge impact on how we handle stress, relate to others and make life choices.

I take great pride in assisting individuals with realizing their fullest potential, to cope with the stressors of life in the work environment. From an educational perspective, the goal would be to aid individuals with studying productively and making meaningful contributions in the school, home and community setting.

I have experiencing in dealing with stress, anxiety, self-esteem, secondary trauma, and child and adolescent trauma, which can impact us as adults.

I am currently licensed as a Clinical Social Worker in the state of Maryland and District of Columbia. I look forward to working with you.
