About Me

    I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker. I have experience working with individuals and families in a variety of settings, including schools, residential, outpatient, case management, addiction, and crisis counseling. I received my master’s degree in clinical social work from the University of Maryland Baltimore and a bachelor’s degree in family science from the University of Maryland College Park. My specialty lies in guiding teenagers, young adults, and older adults through life’s ups and downs, with a focus on healing, empowerment, personal growth, and resilience.

    I believe that therapy should be as unique as you. That is why I take a person-centered approach, combining parts of psychodynamic therapy, motivational interviewing, and cognitive techniques tailored to your needs. Together, we will create a supportive space where we can explore your thoughts and feelings, making positive changes feel attainable.

    Outside the therapy room, I enjoy music, cooking, painting, going for nature walks, and spending time with my family.

    Whether you are facing life transitions, anxiety, depression, loss, or simply seeking support, I am here for you. Feel free to reach out, and let’s explore together whether I can be the companion you are seeking on your path to well-being.
