Experienced Counselor & Supervisor in Maryland
Striving to make changes can be a difficult struggle, including the decision to start therapy. I am motivated by my passion to help others create those positive changes. I believe that it is a privilege to be in this field. It is a philosophy of mine to be transparent about therapy and use evidenced based practices. Another area of importance is a focus on overall mental wellbeing. I draw techniques from several various backgrounds including Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) and Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT). Throughout my career, I’ve had extensive experience working with clients who struggle with depression, anxiety, trauma, grief, and life transitions.
