More about me
Years in Practice: 8
Hello! Thank you for taking the time to practice self-care today. My belief is that searching for help is the first step in the process of healing and as a therapist my personal mission is to provide each client with supports, tools and a safe space to express themselves.
I am a licensed therapist within the state of Maryland. I attained my M.A. in Clinical Mental Health Counseling from Washington Adventist University and hold a B.A. in Psychology from American University. I have worked tirelessly within inpatient, community based and outpatient mental health facilities with a focus on mood, personality and conduct disorders. During my employment within the inpatient mental health facility I oversaw patient care, conducted daily meetings with the psychiatric team, and performed multiple group and individual therapy sessions per day. I reconstructed the behavior modification system for the child unit in collaboration with the president of the hospital and was a primary team member in the “Go Live” process for the first electronic medical record system within the hospital’s history. Since then, I have enjoyed the privilege of working with low income individuals within a community-based agency and currently manage a private practice catering to all ages. My focus is currently on supporting emerging therapists while still providing counseling to those in need.
My approach to working with clients is considered “client centered.” This means my goal is to provide you with a professional support system that will help guide you in understanding how to meet the goals you have set for yourself. As part of my client centered approach, I do ask that clients are “active participants” in the therapeutic process. As an active participant, you will be able to try various methods to improve and develop the life that you wish to have. I value a holistic approach to therapy which includes examination of the person and how they respond to their behaviors, beliefs, and the community around them by incorporating talk therapy and some expressive therapeutic techniques.
I look forward to meeting with you soon!
About online counseling
Online counseling allows you to receive care from an online mental health practitioner via phone, video chat, or instant messaging. It is convenient for those who may have trouble getting to or would prefer not to have in-person therapy appointments. Ranging from $60 to $90 per week, online counseling is generally more affordable than in-person counseling. A study by researchers at University of California, Berkeley found that online counseling can be just as effective as face-to-face therapy while being more convenient, affordable, and accessible.
