Hello! My name is Mary, I am a licensed clinical social worker in the state of Maryland with over 15 years of experience in working with children and their families. Finding a therapist that matches your needs is extremely important.
My background is in working to strengthen families, helping individuals to get in touch with their feelings and to find their individual strength and identity. This include building self-identity and exploring what your feelings mean to you. Most of my work has been in the areas of grief and loss, attachment, sex abuse, trauma and improving family function. My approach is caring and non-judgmental. I believe in creating a safe space that allows you to explore who you are, and to gain knowledge about yourself that produces growth in tangible ways.
My approach is strength-based and person-centered using trauma focused cognitive behavior theory. I am very supportive and with your help, will create goals that will help you to move from feeling stuck to feeling empowered. I am committed to helping you move through your therapeutic process in ways that lets you know that you are a part of this journey.
I believe that each person is unique and customize sessions to meet their specific needs. I am available in the evenings and on weekends.
Connection is important to me and am looking forward to working with you in improving your overall emotional wellbeing.
