As a practical, interactive, solution-focused therapist, my treatment approach is to provide support and practical feedback to help clients resolve current problems and long-standing patterns. With sensitivity and compassion, I help clients find solutions to a wide range of life challenges and psychological issues. Blending conventional and alternative approaches, I draw on a variety of styles and techniques to incorporate what will be most helpful for each client. I help people build on their strengths in order to identify and achieve life goals.
For support during the COVID-19 pandemic, I am offering telehealth counseling via: FaceTime, WhatsApp, Signal, Zoom, and telephone.
I am a LIcensed Clinical Professional Counselor (LCPC) in the State of Maryland. During the COVID-19 Pandemic, I have been granted a temporary license as a Licensed Professional Counselor (LPC) in Virginia until September 8, 2020.
For those who are preparing for careers as psychotherapists, I am an "Approved Licensed Clinical Professional Counselor Supervisor" in Maryland.
