Thank you for checking out my profile and I hope to take you on the next steps on your journey to healthier thinking. I am a clinical social worker licensed in Maryland with over 15 years of experience in the field from community organizing to counseling. I have worked with clients with a wide range of concerns including depression, anxiety, relationship issues, grief, and coping with life changes. I specialize in aging, but enjoy working with all populations.
First and foremost my approach is to listen and make sure you are heard. Clients often appreciate my ability to listen and help them reflect. I believe in the inherent worth of all individuals and believe they deserve to be treated with respect, sensitivity, and compassion. I will tailor our dialogue and treatment plan to meet your unique and specific needs. I will work with you to set appropriate goals.
It takes courage to seek 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!
