I received my Masters in Social Work from the University of Maryland with a specialization in Behavioral Health. I am a Licensed Master Social Worker (LMSW) in the state of Maryland. I recognize that being human is difficult, and it is especially difficult when one feels alone in facing their challenges or uncertain about how to overcome them.
I am passionate about supporting individuals in feeling understood, supported and empowered towards creating positive changes in their life.Rather than taking an “expert” stance, I aim to achieve a collaborative connection with clients in which ongoing feedback is encouraged. I understand that many problems are multifaceted and strive to support clients in developing comprehensive solutions.
I believe treatment should be fitted to the individual and am versatile in my approach. I draw from a variety of interventions, including Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT), Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT) and Internal Family Systems (IFS). I recognize that client needs and preferences may change over time and am willing to modify my approach as necessary.
