I had a wonderful experience with Mimi as my first therapist. I was really struggling to find solid ground under the stress of my grad program and many other relational and life issues. With Mimi's help, I was able to identify patterns of thinking that were making me put more pressure on myself than I needed to, and have become able to give myself gratitude and space to feel these complex feelings. Mimi was an impartial, steady listener to whatever I felt like talking about and drew from her many experiences to provide a well rounded view of what might be underlying, often suggesting helpful things to focus on in the future. I feel I am in a much better place now because of her, as a welcome and necessary step in my life-long therapy journey.

More about me
LICSW, LCSW-C, MSW
Years in Practice: 6
I am a licensed clinical social worker/therapist licensed in Maryland and the District of Columbia with over 10 years of experience. I have been truly blessed to work with clients ranging from preteens to the elderly dealing with varying issues such as depression, anxiety, relationship issues to anger management, family issues and physical and emotional abuse to name a few. I have been especially proud of working with youth and young adults who were and formally in the foster care system transition emotionally and mentally to adulthood and society as a whole. These issues often interrupt our daily lives and can feel debilitating. However, when one has a trusting therapeutic relationship with someone who cares, one can work towards a path to freedom.
My counseling style is interactive, empathetic and warm. It is my belief that listening is the key to success in a therapeutic relationship and every client that I am blessed to serve will feel heard. Being treated with dignity, respect and compassion are also the tenets that I abide by and will display that in every interaction and intervention. My approach combines strengths therapy, cognitive-behavior therapy and solution-focused therapy to ensure that the highest level of outcomes are achieved as outlined by a unique treatment plan that will be tailored to your needs.
The courage it takes to decide to seek help to experience a healthier, happier life is no small feat but will derive high dividends through our work together. Throughout this process, and through your accomplished goals, you will soon realize that this was the best decision you ever made for yourself. If you are ready to take that step, I am here to support and empower you.
I look forward to working with you!
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.
