I am a licensed certified clinical social worker who received a Master’s Degree from the University of Maryland Baltimore. I have a wide variety of experience working with children, adolescents and families. I have worked in both inpatient and outpatient settings, schools and homes. I have worked extensively with clients diagnosed with Depression, Anxiety and Mood Disorders, Adjustment Disorders and Trauma related issues. I often utilize Cognitive Behavioral Therapy to help clients understand the relationship between their thoughts, feelings, and behavior.
I don’t believe therapy is a ‘one size fits all’, but rather is most effective when it is tailored to the client and their specific needs and goals. Depending on the case, my style will be person-centered and non-directive. Other times, my style will be more interactive and goal directed. I am always intentional about creating a warm and safe environment for my clients so that together we can effectively address the presenting problems and create lasting change.
