Hello, and congratulations on your decision to discover meaningful change. It’s not an easy decision to make, so I applaud you as you take your first step towards greater self-discovery. Whether you are experiencing conflict in your relationships, having difficulties at work, or struggling with a major life transition, at one time or another we all need a little support. Through thoughtful collaboration, I work alongside my clients as they begin to define and create the changes in their families, relationships or personal lives they wish to make. I have experience working with families, couples, individuals and adolescents.
My approach to therapy is rooted in a blend of evidence-based techniques that focuses on helping clients understand how their thoughts, feelings, and behaviors are interconnected. I work with clients to manage stress, develop healthier habits, define their purpose, and make meaning in a world that is full of daunting challenges. For couples and families, I strive to: identify areas for healing, enhance family bonding, redefine relationship dynamics, and improve communication skills.
My approach is humanistic, with special emphasis given to a collaborative and interactive relationship with my clients. My holistic approach helps clients understand their emotional, physical, and behavioral response to external stressors through a culturally sensitive, trauma-informed lens. I aim to help my clients reframe their lives in a way that supports self-compassion, self-confidence, self-efficacy and self-love.
I am a Baltimore native who recently relocated to Northern Virginia with my rescue dog, Turbo. I enjoy maintaining a healthy lifestyle that prioritizes physical and mental wellness. In my free time, I enjoy exercising, spending time outdoors, reading, cooking, and spending quality time with my family.
