I am licensed as a Licensed Clinical Professional Counselor (LCPC) in Maryland and also licensed as a Licensed Mental Health Counselor (LMHC) in Florida. I have been working in the mental health field since 2011 and as a therapist, I take an eclectic approach to therapy and will pull from several different approaches, including Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Person Centered Therapy, and Mindfulness. I truly believe that it is important to emphasize the importance of the mind-body connection and overall wellness, and the importance of being mindful of your body and reactions as well. I find it is important to take the time to ensure that my work with each client is individualized and takes culture and preferences into account, and also takes a collaborative approach with clients, in order to tailor treatment to what works best for each individual.
I hold a Bachelor of Arts in Psychology, with a minor in Sociology from Clark University in Worcester, Massachusetts, and a Master of Arts in Clinical Psychology from Barry University in Miami, Florida. I have spent time working in many different settings, including residential programs, inpatient settings, private practice, and community mental health agencies. My areas of focus include: females ranging from teenage years through early 30s, women’s issues, trauma and PTSD, anxiety, mood disorders, depression, and difficult life adjustments and moving forward.
