More about me
Years in Practice: 9
I believe in the inherent value and worth of people so I use evidence based treatments with a warm and compassionate approach to provide quality care for my clients. I am a Clinical Social Worker licensed in Maryland with over 9 years of clinical experience and was active duty in the Navy for over 11 years. I have worked with clients with a wide range of concerns including depression, anxiety, relationship issues, parenting problems, and career challenges. By using my specialized training, I have also helped many people who have experienced trauma including physical trauma, sexual trauma, emotional abuse, and combat exposure.
My counseling style is warm and interactive. I believe in treating everyone with respect, sensitivity, and compassion. My approach combines cognitive-behavioral, psychoeducation, and mindfulness practice. I will tailor our dialog and treatment plan to meet your unique and specific needs.
Should you feel in need of urgent help or that you are in crisis at any time during our work together; please call 1-800-273-TALK 24 hours a day; or 911. This forum does not provide any type of emergency services, so I want to be sure you know who to contact if you need immediate help.
It takes courage to seek for a more fulfilling and happier life and to take the first steps towards a change. If you are ready to take that step I am here to support and empower 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.
