I approach clients with warmth, attentiveness, and humor, and strive to create a non-judgmental space in which clients can explore life’s challenges and leverage their strengths.
With cultural curiosity and an anti-racist lens, I draw from evidence-based interventions, such as attachment-based psychodynamic modalities, solution-focused therapy, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), and Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT) as well as mindfulness, play, and movement therapies. I am currently pursing my 200-hour Yoga Teacher Training Certificate. I am passionate about working with people who are experiencing stigma, whether it relates to culture, gender or sexual identity, or mental health diagnoses as research shows that stigma has a huge impact on a person’s ability to heal and grow. No matter where you are on your healing journey, I will meet you there.
I completed my MSW at Catholic University, specializing in children and adolescents. I have also worked with adults and older adults (and their caregivers) at the DC Department of Aging and Community Living. I have researched identity formation, internal and societal mental health stigma, and access to mental healthcare for marginalized groups. Before pursuing social work, I was a journalist and educator. I also hold an MA from the Walsh School of Foreign Service at Georgetown University and a BA in Politics from the University of Delaware. I enjoy hiking, art shows, and playing with my fuzzy dog, Psychie.
