Living your best life does not have to be a cliché, but can be your reality.  Is something holding you back?   By exploring your experiences, beliefs, thoughts, and emotions and connecting them to the story you tell yourself about your life, we can develop a more satisfying story. Whether you are experiencing trauma, anxiety, depression, grief and loss, low self-esteem, loneliness or more – I am here to listen and to support you.

I provide a safe space for you to think out loud to explore your emotions and life circumstances. In my approach, I take the time to get to know you on a deeper level to truly understand your challenges and your strengths. I tailor my therapeutic approach to meet your unique needs and to develop specific attainable strategies to move you closer to your goals. I recognize how challenges arise from experiences with oppression based on race, ethnicity, color, gender, gender identity, sexual orientation, age, and different abilities, and will support you in advocating and working with you to obtain the systemic support you need. Through this approach, I will equip you with the right coping tools to build resilience and increase your confidence. Together, we can work towards the change you want to see in yourself and in your life, such as functioning more comfortably, attaining a better work-life balance, and feeling more connected in your relationships.

I am a licensed clinical social worker in Maryland, Washington, D.C., and Virginia. With 20+ years of experience, I am a certified grief and loss therapist, a registered play therapist and play therapist supervisor, and hold a certificate in Sand Tray therapy.  I have worked in a variety of settings including community mental health, case management, the criminal justice system and, most recently, providing therapy and practicing school social work in a public school system.

I received my MSW from Bryn Mawr University, and her Juris Doctor from Georgetown University Law Center, and my Bachelor of Arts from Bradley University.
