More about me

Licensing: PhD, LPC, LCPC
Years in Practice: 19

I am a licensed professional counselor in Virginia and Maryland. I am an approved supervisor in Maryland, Nationally Certified Counselor (NCC), an Approved Clinical Supervisor (ACS), and Board-Certified Tele mental health provider. I earned a BA in Human Services and MA in Rehabilitation Counseling from the George Washington University. I earned a doctorate in Counselor Education and Supervision from Virginia Tech. For fourteen years I maintained an independent clinical practice specializing in working with adults, children, and families connected to adoption and foster care. In addition, I have professional experience working in community mental health, pre natal care clinics, and with immigrant populations.

I use a relational-cultural theoretical approach that defines growth through connection and highlights the importance of our cultural identities. I also utilize attachment theory, family systems, and trauma informed care in my clinical approaches. I have worked with a wide variety of clients with varied concerns to include trauma, either from childhood or adult experiences, family relationship conflicts, relationship concerns, anxiety, depression, and racial/ethnic identity development.

I work to build a secure and safe counselor and client relationship and alter treatment approaches dependent on client needs. I trust clients know themselves best and enjoy journeying with them as they continue to heal and grow.

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 $35 to $80 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.
