I am a LCSW-C in the state of Maryland with over ten years of experience working with children and families across a variety of settings. My professional experience has allowed me to work with populations from all walks of life who are in crisis and/or experiencing major traumatic life challenges. I feel a strong connection and dedication to serving this community.
My background includes working with clients as they navigate through and heal from traumatic life experiences. My experience also includes working with children and families as it relates to the impact substance abuse and mental illness may have on family systems. My professional experience and advanced training in trauma psychotherapy has allowed me to practice with a trauma informed mindset. I feel it is very important to understand the impact of past traumas as well as engage in therapeutic strategies proven to help promote a greater sense of healing and growth.
I believe all people are capable a growth and change and I strive to create an open and understanding environment where you feel comfortable and encouraged to reach your goals. I will respect your feelings and boundaries as it relates to what we explore together in session. I see client relationships as partnerships where we will work together in a way that is works best for you and your unique situation.
