About me

I am a clinical social worker licensed in the District of Columbia and Maryland. I have provided services in the mental health and child welfare setting for more than 10 years. My clinical approach is client-centered, strength-based, and solution-focused. I use my skill set to assist clients to discover their strengths and improve on coping skills they have utilized and learn new approaches. I work with deaf, hard of hearing and hearing clients. With hearing clients, we will use messaging or phone with sign language interpreters. The clients will determine the options that are comfortable for them.
I believe that the clients are experts on what works on the issues they face. I have worked with clients on anxiety. adjustment issues, trauma, and stress-related concerns, coping with life changes using the strength-based, solution-focused approach as well as motivational interviews.

My counselor, Juliana Sarkodee, has been so helpful! Each session, something is revealed to me. What I especially appreciate is the nonjudgmental way that she provides key points. Another thing I especially appreciate is being able to speak without feeling like I will appear foolish and embarrassed or deserving less than kindness.

Ever since I have been matched with Julianna, I have hope that the issues addressed in our sessions have helped me to see things I didn’t before. Also, the worksheets based on our conversations has helped me to interact with my family in a different way. As a result, I have found a way to help me with the grief of my son’s death. It has been seven years and I have to say I am in a different place today because of her.

Juliana Sarkodee is great when it comes to helping with family issues, she gives great insight and even helps prepare plans of action towards your goals. I enjoyed working with her through my work, and relationship concerns. Juliana approaches situations from different angles giving you perspectives to take into consideration while respecting your perspective. Betterhelp did a great job with pairing us as she was the first therapist I've ever had. I was hesitant at first but I feel that talking with a professional without judgment was and is very helpful.
