About me

The pace of our lives can be hectic and isolating. I believe therapy is one way to allow our nervous systems time to experience a healing connection. I am a Maryland licensed clinical social worker-certified (LCSW-C), with training in family systems, trauma, mindfulness, acceptance and commitment therapy, and expressive arts. My treatment approach begins with getting to know what makes you unique, both your challenges and strengths. I believe when we feel safe and heard, answers come from within. I will work with you to find out what's in the way of your progress and what steps could benefit you right now. I work with depression, anxiety, stress, trauma, chronic pain, grief and loss, spirituality, and self-esteem issues. Both personally and professionally, I am always actively seeking to better support and hold space for LGBTQIA+ individuals, people with disabilities, and BIPOC people and welcome you as a client in your full self.
