I am a license clinical counselor with a doctorate in psychology. I live and work in Baltimore City and bring to my practice a broad range of experiences from raising my own family and helping women give birth as a doula, to providing therapy to clients as they struggle with depression, anxiety, physical addiction, and trauma. I have worked in private practice and in agencies. At Sheppard Pratt Hospital I worked with adolescents in residential treatment and at Johns Hopkins with adults in a partial hospitalization program as they struggled with the emotional and physical ravages of drug addiction. At the University of Maryland Medical Center-Midtown Campus, my work focused more on assisting people with a wide range of problems including health-related issues, job and family issues, addictions, and trauma and dissociation. In 2017, I began working in private practice and individual therapy in South Baltimore at 1414 Key Highway.
One of my guiding principles is that no two people are alike. Each person has a unique way of viewing the world, a unique set of circumstances and way of healing. While one client may need to simply talk through problems, another may need a more solution-focused approach while others may need help learning relaxation skills. Other people may be looking for strategies to help overcome depression, addiction, phobias, or traumatic memories that have plagued them for years.
First and foremost, though, I am a friend, mother, grandmother. I am also a cook, musician, and an artist and attempt to live my life to the fullest. One of my passions is photography and on this site, you will see many of my photographs. Below are more of them put here just for fun.
