So many people have come to my office thinking they were "weak," or that their problems were too "stupid" or small for counseling. I have made it my mission to help people understand and have compassion for themselves, even when the world tries to tell them otherwise. Only when starting from a place of self-compassion can people understand the the life they've lived so far, the kind of life they want in the future, and the choices they need to make to bridge that gap. I have extensive experience in mood disorders, anxiety, and addiction as well as many general problems of living. I see my role as that of a facilitator helping people tap into their own potential for growth and change. As a therapist, I challenge people and ask them to take risks--"If you do what you've always done, you'll get what you always get." I've worked with people in college, people in jail, and almost everyone in between. In my spare time I enjoy music, movies, and the transformative power of nature.

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!

How does the cost of in-person counseling with a therapist compare to the cost of BetterHelp with a licensed Accident therapist?

The average price of an in-person therapy session in the US is $100 to $200 per hour. These prices may be higher in Accident due to a higher cost of living.

  • Counseling with therapists: $100-300
  • Therapy with a psychologist: $100

While many psychologists in Accident may not take health insurance, some in the state of Maryland may work on a sliding scale, meaning they'll factor in your income and charge what you can afford per session.

How do I know if online counseling is right for my family in Accident?

One of the potentially rewarding aspects of working with a Accident therapist is the validation and active listening they can provide. Your friends and loved ones may also be available to listen, but you may feel that they may lack the skills to provide objective guidance. Counselors are trained to respond to various concerns, symptoms, and mental health conditions.

Accident therapists in your city can support you toward a healthier emotional state, regardless of your mental health, life concerns, or healing needs. While supporting individuals in developing healthier habits, another good benefit of Accident therapy is having an understanding, safe space with a non-judgmental party who can support you through challenging experiences.

Many people have sensitive topics that they may feel ashamed to discuss with their friends or partner. A Accident therapist can help you confront these concerns and open up through unique methods of support. There are also many types of therapy, such as art therapy, where you may find you can express yourself through creativity instead of words with a psychotherapist.

With a lot of people in MD, therapists may be booked out with clients.

How should I prepare for my first therapy session with a Accident counselor?

Before seeing your Accident therapist, prep for your session by reading to understand the therapy process. You might write a list of questions you want to ask your psychotherapist, any emotional pain you may feel, and the ways in which you hope to improve. When you attend your session, let them know if you have any concerns about therapy or feel unsure about what to talk about. They may help guide you with open-ended therapeutic questions while offering mental health services. The first session will often serve as an intake to get to know you as a person and learn why you're attending therapy in Accident.

Should I find a therapist or psychologist for therapy if I feel fine? 

Some simply don't feel the need to see a psychologist. However, some people may avoid attending therapy due to stigma or preconceived notions of what therapy entails. Although psychologists often support people with mental health conditions, 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 feedback and advice from a therapist. A Accident licensed clinical social worker may help you gain power over your life and emotions while you navigate day-to-day experiences.

Gaining a new perspective on yourself through various therapies might allow you to improve your self-esteem, work through relationships, and gain a better sense of your mental health goals. The success you may find through therapy with a Accident counselor can be dependent on your process.

People may also attend therapy for specific motives, such as bullying, an autism diagnosis, a desire to learn mindfulness meditation, personality concerns, trouble with office workers, specific phobias, and many other principles that a counselor can help with.

Is mental health care and therapy with a therapist worth it?

Therapy with a licensed counselor is effective and has the power to change individuals' lives. Each client is at a different stage of their emotional healing journey in life, as each human can be unique in their personality, expression, skills, and goals. A psychologist can target various symptoms, experiences, and personalities to help you feel your best and put you on the path to healing. Unlike advice from a friend, family, or non-professional, a mental health therapist has an understanding of various disorders like ADHD and depression with many hours of experience in treating adults in their practice. For this reason, seeing an evidence based psychologist in Accident, Maryland can be worth it. Over 41 million adults in the US attend therapy services each year, showing it's a popular option and is proven to be effective.

Many people struggling with anxiety and depression, substance abuse, body image issues, and more find therapists that are a good fit for them, feel supported, and gain further insight into their lives through internet-based therapy.

Do therapists judge you in therapy sessions during telehealth appointments?

The boundaries between you and a therapist are in place to help you and them regarding ethical concerns. Mental health professionals are held by ethical standards through the American Psychological Association (APA) and are not allowed to judge or harm their clients. If you are concerned about sharing details about yourself, feel free to withhold personal information. Their job in the therapeutic relationship is to create a safe place, help you gain a deeper understanding of your mental health, and support you. You might consider changing counselors if you don't feel safe or respected.
