I am a licensed counselor in Maryland with over a decade of education in psychology and counseling. I have half a decade experience in the field in a number of different settings from emergency rooms to outpatient clinics. I gained my PhD in Counseling in May 2022. I am a National Certified Counselor and am a Board Certified Telemental Health Counselor. I have had training in an array of mental health issues from depression, anxiety, bipolar, career concerns, life transitions, racial or identity discrimination, and trauma. While I don't exclusively work in these therapies, I heavily borrow from CBT, ACT, Motivational Interviewing, and Narrative Therapy. Working in the settings from inpatient to outpatient has afforded me the skill to shape keen diagnostic skills, and you receive the benefit of knowing I will take on the most efficient treatment for your diagnosis. I work first and foremost with my clients to create an open and safe environment where thoughts and feelings can be shared without fear of judgment. As a counselor, I know it takes courage to seek and to take the first steps towards a change. I am here to support & empower you in that journey. At Liberty University I became keenly aware of the five domains of the individual: the cognitive, the behavioral, the emotional, the social and the spiritual. While I attended Liberty University I know our faiths, spirituality and walks of life all look different. I will support you in your journey.
