I am a professional counselor licensed in Delaware and Maryland with over 15 years of experience as an individual, couples, and family therapist. I have worked with clients with a wide range of diagnoses including depression, bipolar d/o, anxiety d/o's, adhd, ocd, PTSD, gender dysphoria, and substance use d/o's. I also have experience working with clients with a wide range of concerns, including relationship, parenting, and family issues; diversity, equity, and inclusion concerns; LGBTQ+ concerns; and academic, occupational, financial, and housing concerns.
My counseling style is warm, affirming, and interactive. I believe in treating everyone with respect, sensitivity, and compassion, and I don't believe in stigmatizing labels. My approach combines humanistic/person-centered therapy, mindfulness-based cognitive-behavioral therapy, acceptance and commitment therapy, and trauma-focused treatment methods. I will tailor our dialog and treatment plan to meet your unique and specific needs and challenges, in collaboration with your input.
It takes courage to seek a more fulfilling and happier life, and to take the first steps towards making a change. If you are ready to take that step I am here to support and empower you.
I look forward to working with you!
