More about me

Licensing: LCMFT
Years in Practice: 3
State: MD

My diverse personal and professional background has enriched me and my approach to helping work. In the last 15 years I have worked with incarcerated males in Kamiti Prison in Kenya,  people navigating struggles with addiction and alcoholism in Surrey, BC, Canada; more recently, families with adults with developmental disabilities in Washington D.C.  I have been licensed in Maryland for a little over two years. Since then, I have worked with individuals, children and families with different needs such as overcoming the impact of trauma or help with restoration of confidence and control over various problems.

In an age that mostly feels like there is increase in demand for your attention, it can feel overwhelming sometimes. I strive to create a space where all that external noise is shut out and your own voice is amplified. In that space, there is opportunity for a process of expression, reflection and insight; out of that process there is potential for clarity, change and progress. My theoretical approach combines cognitive-behavioral, humanistic, Narrative and Family Systems. Cultural considerations are a significant part of the process too. Above all, I do my best to create an aura of warmth and acceptance. I'm here to support and walk alongside you during this phase of your journey. 

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.
