*I AM ACCEPTING NEW CLIENTS* As a Licensed Clinical Professional Counselor I have a passion for serving children, adults, and families who are struggling with various behavioral and mental health issues such as inattention, conflict resolution, oppositional behaviors, trauma, coping skills, effective communication, healthy boundaries, grief, LGBTQ related issues, anxiety, depression, and life transitions. I want to help my clients achieve and maintain their best quality of life and gain a positive sense of self through a holistic approach while integrating therapeutic techniques and creating a positive therapeutic relationship.
My areas of special interest are working with children, families, and adults and providing psychoeducation that will allow my clients to manage their symptoms effectively. The main methods of therapy I utilize with my clients are Person-Centered Therapy, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Play Therapy, Trauma- Focused Therapy, and Solution- Focused Therapy.
I have morning, afternoon, and evening hours in Upper Marlboro, MD. If you are looking for a safe space to express yourself and obtain clarity and overall wellness within your life please do not hesitate and contact me today!
I enjoy watching the progress my clients make in achieveing their goals and how they obtain clarity on issues they thought they could not solve. It is extremely rewarding for me to see that process.

When working with new clients I always work on building a great rapport with them and create an open and safe space for clients to ask questions about therapy or their perceptions of what they think therapy will be. I think that is always a good way to introduce new clients to therapy to hopefully help reduce any fear, worry, or conerns they may have.
I obtained my Bachelor's Degree in Psychology from Allegheny College and I obtained my Master's Degree in Clinical Mental Health Counseling from Trinity Washington University. I am currently licensed with the Maryland Board of Professional Counselors and Therapists as a LCPC (Licensed Clinical Professional Counselor). I have been practicing for 3 to 4 years but I have been working in the mental health field since 2011. So, I have a lot of experience with adults and children with various mental health disorders.
I began working for the private practice in November of 2019 but I have had a lot of experience working as a therapist working with children, adults, families, and severe mentally ill adults.
I have worked with children between the ages of 5-21, adults 21-60, and severly mentally ill adults. I have worked with different ethnic and socioeconomic backgrounds and have been able to build a great rapport with all the client's I have worked with.
