Are you an adult, adolescent or parent of an adolescent suffering from depression, anxiety, substance abuse or dissociative disorders?   Do you need individual counseling or family therapy?  My areas of expertise in counseling and therapy include all of these areas:

  • General Mental Health Issues
  • Anxiety
  • Grief
  • Depression
  • Parenting
  • Early Childhood Issues
  • School Problems
  • Dual Diagnosis
  • Substance Abuse
  • Issues arising from divorce
  • Trauma Related Problems

In therapy, there is no “one size fits all!”

I offer treatment in a warm and nurturing environment for people who have experienced trauma, loss and grief in their lives.  My work uses a wide variety of treatment approaches, including EMDR*, clinical hypnosis and art therapy techniques.  I approach each person uniquely, as an individual.  In therapy, there is no “one size fits all!”  Treatment approaches are tailored to fit your individual needs. Therapy can range from a mindfulness DBT** approach to insight-oriented talk therapy with other therapies added as needed.

I’ve been in practice for more than 20 years, including research work with Taghi Modaressi, MD at The Center for Infant Studies and private group practices in Baltimore.  I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker (LCSW-C) with advanced training at The Institute for Advanced Training and Education where I earned my certificate in Advanced Trauma Treatment. My MSW is from the University of Maryland School of Social Work and my B.A. is from Emory University.
