I am a licensed clinical social worker/therapist licensed in the District of Columbia and the state of Maryland with over 10 years of experience. I have had the opportunity to work with children and families, young adults as well as the elderly dealing with varying issues such as depression, anxiety, relationship issues, parenting problems, dealing with societal and environmental stressors while hospitalized as well as with the community. These issues often interrupt our daily lives and can feel debilitating. However, when one has a trusting therapeutic relationship with someone who cares, one can work towards a path to appropriately managing these issues and eventually freedom.
My counseling style is interactive, empathetic, and warm. It is my belief that listening is the key to success in a therapeutic relationship and every client that I am blessed to serve will feel heard. Being treated with dignity, respect and compassion are also the tenets that I abide by and will display that in every interaction and intervention. My approach combines strengths therapy, cognitive-behavior therapy and solution-focused therapy to ensure that the highest level of outcome is achieved as outlined by a treatment plan that will be tailored to your needs.
It takes courage to seek for a more fulfilling and happier life and to take the first steps towards 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!

Maureen has improved my quality of life. She is professional and caring and I feel like I can be myself with her. There have been several instances in which Maureen has skillfully provided a great aha moment and helped me to see various point of views on a situation. She is very flexible when it comes to scheduling the sessions and I appreciate Maureen very much!
Maureen is a great listener and she offered me great advice
Maureen is a kind and caring counselor. She listens to her client and responds appropriately. She is beyond genuine and cares about her clients.
Maureen is lovely and calming and is a huge help to my anxiety.
Although Maureen and I just got started, I think she’s been a great help to me.
I've only had two sessions with Maureen, but she makes me feel as if we've been through many more. She is very respectful and listens carefully. I look forward to my future sessions with her.
