About My Clients

Maybe you were holding it together, but then life threw you a curve ball. Your go-to ways of coping no longer work. Maybe you have been thinking about seeking therapy for a while but you couldn't find the time, or it made you too anxious. This can feel isolating, but you are not alone. My clients range in age from young adult to retiree age. I specialize in helping individuals navigate parental burnout, life transitions, anxiety, academic/workplace issues, and family issues,.

My Background and Approach

I have been in the mental health field for over thirteen years, with the majority of the last decade being spent providing counseling to students, faculty, and staff at Johns Hopkins University. My time at JHU has nurtured my love of helping individuals navigate personal challenges, as well as those related to work and academia. I have particularly enjoyed and have extensive experience working with the international community. My work as a therapist also focuses on supporting parents find their way through parental burnout, balance parenting obligations with demanding work schedules, and finding a sense of peace amongst the anxiety and uncertainty that can accompany raising children. I utilize a variety of therapeutic theories and techniques depending on the needs of the client, including cognitive behavioral therapy, solution focused therapy, strengths based therapy, person centered therapy, and mindfulness.

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

My work is grounded in an intersectional, culturally inclusive perspective, with respect to racial or ethnic identity, country of origin, physical ability, sexual and gender diversity, and religious and political affiliation. I believe that positive change most readily occurs when the right balance of accountability and self compassion is achieved. To that end, I strive to create a safe and welcoming environment where you can truly feel supported.
