Hello! Thank you for taking the time to practice self-care today. My belief is that searching for help is the first step in the process of healing and as a therapist my personal mission is to provide each client with supports, tools and a safe space to express themselves. I am a licensed therapist within the state of Maryland. I attained my M.A. in Clinical Mental Health Counseling from Washington Adventist University and hold a B.A. in Psychology from American University. I have worked tirelessly within inpatient, community based and outpatient mental health facilities with a focus on mood, personality and conduct disorders. During my employment within the inpatient mental health facility I oversaw patient care, conducted daily meetings with the psychiatric team, and performed multiple group and individual therapy sessions per day. I reconstructed the behavior modification system for the child unit in collaboration with the president of the hospital and was a primary team member in the “Go Live” process for the first electronic medical record system within the hospital’s history. Since then, I have enjoyed the privilege of working with low income individuals within a community-based agency and currently manage a private practice catering to all ages. My focus is currently on supporting emerging therapists while still providing counseling to those in need. My approach to working with clients is considered “client centered.” This means my goal is to provide you with a professional support system that will help guide you in understanding how to meet the goals you have set for yourself. As part of my client centered approach, I do ask that clients are “active participants” in the therapeutic process. As an active participant, you will be able to try various methods to improve and develop the life that you wish to have. I value a holistic approach to therapy which includes examination of the person and how they respond to their behaviors, beliefs, and the community around them by incorporating talk therapy and some expressive therapeutic techniques. I look forward to meeting with you soon!

My philosophy is that therapy is more than just giving you a space to talk; therapy is about getting you results. If you are working through symptoms of depression, lack of motivation, anxiety or self-esteem issues we'll work on getting a good understanding of it, tools to manage it and perspectives to address it. Whether you've been feeling down or simply trying to figure yourself out, progress and relief are your ultimate goal and we're going to work on that together. My focus is on helping you figure out your next step, learn the next tool, or develop the new insight that will help you get to where you’d like to be. I collaborate with you to make sure your goals are being met. You and I will check in with each other often to make sure we are moving in the direction you'd like! I take a Client-Centered approach and utilize the latest advancements in mental health care to treat clients as individuals with unique needs. What that means is that I will meet you where you're at by prompting you with exploratory questions and then also provide you with practical feedback/interventions/techniques to help you facilitate the changes you're looking to make. Bettering yourself can start today!

I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker who knows first hand the lasting impact childhood trauma can have on ones mind, body and soul. My life experiences have led to me choose a life of service to others through providing hope and healing. Being a therapist is something I enjoy, providing support comes EASY. My unwavering desire and innate ability to Make people feel comfortable and accepted, help people identify and put their feelings into words, accept people for who they are, understand people’s experiences and support personal growth makes me a great listener and compassionate therapist. For over 20 years I have worked with individuals, couples and families in addressing some of life’s most challenging circumstances. I am clinically trained in the following treatment modalities; Psychodynamic , Cognitive Behavioral (CBT), Trauma-Focused CBT (TF-CBT), Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT)and Solution Focused Therapy. My use of diverse and interactive; clinical and holistic therapeutic approaches have proven to be most effective in addressing issues including but not limited to depression, anxiety, trauma, grief, substance use/abuse, relationship issues, parenting concerns and diminished coping skills. A patient centered approach allows me to most efficiently utilize my clinical training. I am COMMITTED to being available to support underrepresented, misrepresented and marginalized populations in their therapeutic journey by validating experiences of trauma and abuse experienced due to racism, biases and prejudice. Supporting women of color who have found themselves in spaces or situations where they have been victimized by systematic oppression, inequality, and intergenerational trauma is also of utmost importance to me. It would be an honor to help you heal and grow while sharing your story.

Frequently asked questions (FAQs)

Some commonly asked questions can be found below.

How much does a therapist cost?

Mental health professionals can differ in price. Forbes found that the average cost of in-person therapy in the US is around $100 to $200 per hour. Pricing can also vary based on your location. 

BetterHelp offers payment plans of $60 to $90 per session, charged monthly in a lump sum. You can also take advantage of this pricing on one of BetterHelp's sister platforms, like ReGain for couples or TeenCounseling for teens aged 13 to 19.

Many therapists may be upfront about their pricing and whether or not they take health insurance from the beginning. Additionally, some in your area may offer a sliding scale plan to allow those with lower incomes to pay less for therapy. However, services online can often save individuals a few hundred dollars per month.

How do I know if I should get a therapist?

Mental health services and mental health providers may help you navigate various concerns. You do not need a diagnosis or condition to attend therapy; You can discuss grief, relationship concerns, stress, or life changes and ask for general advice. A counselor may help you gain power over your life and emotions while you navigate day-to-day experiences.

Mental health issues don't always present as a crisis. Many professionals provide talk therapy and support for life transitions, skills learning, relationship problems, or life coaching. Online therapy sessions in Maryland can allow clients seeking therapy to experience professional help through video, phone, or live chat sessions without commuting to an office.

Does insurance cover therapy?

Different counseling services can vary in cost. Therapists must apply to accept insurance through insurance companies, which may take time and money, so not every therapist offers services through insurance. If you cannot find a therapist that accepts your plan, BetterHelp may be cheaper than visiting an in-person therapist.

Is online therapy safe?

Online therapy through BetterHelp and its sister platforms is safe. Therapists are licensed, experienced, and vetted before being contracted with the platform. If you experience any concerns with your therapist, you change your counselor through the platform or app at any time.
