What will we do in therapy?

I believe that therapy is about showing up and figuring things out. There is no one technique or method that is better than the other. I don't treat the diagnosis, I treat the person. It's about the connection and feeling genuinely understood.  The first thing you do is show up. That's it. 

You are here because you are:

  • Tired. SO TIRED. 
  • Everything is too much 
  • There is that pesky voice in your brain that says "what's wrong with you? Get your shit together"
  • You are one second away from a meltdown or blowing up at the next person who dares to breathe in your direction 
  • Things are not where or what you want them to be and, quite frankly, it's pissing you off

You feel: 

  • Alone in your struggles and it seems like other people are on the right path (what's wrong with me?)
  • You are just trudging along and feel stuck

What I will bring to the session: 

  • A sense of humor and more than likely a couple curse words. 
  • A blanket, a cardigan, and at least two beverages (because that's what therapists do) 
  • Some insight and a new perspective.

I believe: 

  • There is hope and potential in everyone (I know it's there, we can find it) 
  • A sense of humor makes things more tolerable. 
  • Your inner critic can be a jerk sometimes and the more you understand about yourself, the more compassion and growth you will have. 
  • You are worth it. You have a lot to offer to yourself and the world. Let's find it!

This is the next step

Looking for Work History and Credentials?

I started school at a local community college, transferred to UMBC and then U Balt for my graduate degree.

Prior to private practice, I worked in a variety of therapy settings. These spaces were large mental health clinics with a diverse set of clients. The broad spectrum of experience has helped me identify who I really enjoy (and therefore am most successful) working with. While large facilities were crucial in gaining experience, I found that I wanted more. I was helping my patients find their stride while I was stuck in a rut. I found it unsettling to not practice what I preach and decided to strike out on my own.

I work with individuals and couples who struggle with ADHD, anxiety, depression, and trauma. My background working with civilian and military populations with co-occurring disorders has helped me to make a connection with my clients. This connection is the backbone of good therapy.
