My belief is that no matter how stuck a person feels, there is hope. I describe myself as a practical psychodynamic therapist. I approach therapy with curiosity, compassion, and humor. Questions will be asked, and we will answer them together. We will collaborate to discover and implement tools to help you start feeling better as soon as possible. Meanwhile, we will explore how past experiences affect your present life. We do this to honor our past experiences and improve current and future relationships and to lead more satisfying lives. We heal when we find new ways of being in relationship to others.
I have a BA in Philosophy and Women Gender Studies from St. Mary’s College of Maryland. I obtained a Master of Public Policy and a Master of Social Work from the University of Maryland. In the past, I have worked for the federal government and in mental health policy. I provide therapeutic services to adult individuals with trauma-related conditions, LGBTQIA identifying adults and teens, and families.
