About me

I am currently a Senior Family Violence Prevention Specialist in the DC metro area. I have twenty years of experience working with children and adults with issues ranging from parenting problems. children with autism disorders, children who were physically and sexually abused, children with behavioral problems, relational issues, career counseling, work-life issues, and depressive disorders.

Through my many years of training, I utilized cognitive-behavioral therapy, solution-focused therapy, trauma-informed therapy, client-centered therapy, and meditation techniques.. I believe in empowering the client to make their situation into a small positive. Life brings us hurdles at times and we must step over them one at a time. The biggest step is acknowledging you need help or support and seeking it.

I look forward to working with you!

She is professional, kind, positive and contagious attitude towards life. I look forward to each session with her. She listens intuitively and intently. She reassures you when you're on the right path and suggests different ways of solving problems in an encouraging manner. She is someone who I can confidently confide in and would enjoy having as an on-going Therapist.

She's absolutely the sweetest!! Even though our time was short, she never failed to make me feel welcomed to speak my thoughts. I can tell she's a warm, thoughtful, and considerate person, and I appreciate how focused she was as she listened to me tell my stories. At the end of the day, I just needed a person to listen to me and help comfort, and she was always there for me!
