I have a special interest in addressing various challenges, including Trauma and PTSD, Career Counseling, Anxiety, Depression, Self-esteem/Personal Growth, Life Transitions/Adjustment, Relationship Conflict, Multicultural Issues, Religion and Spirituality, Self-harm, Suicidal Ideation, and Bipolar/Mood Disorders. In my therapeutic approach, I incorporate Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT), having completed the foundational training through the Linehan Institute and contributing to CCG's comprehensive DBT team. My toolkit also includes Cognitive Behavioral (CBT), Client-Centered, Solutions Focused, Trauma-Informed, and Psychodynamic modalities, with a willingness to integrate faith and spirituality into sessions upon client request. As a Resident in Counseling in Virginia and a Licensed Graduate Professional Counselor (LGPC) in Maryland, my priority is to establish a secure and collaborative environment, drawing on my Master's degree in Clinical Mental Health Counseling from Marymount University. Being a National Certified Counselor (NCC) and a member of the American Counseling Association (ACA) and Chi Sigma Iota, I bring a wealth of expertise to my practice. My professional journey includes serving diverse populations at a group practice, where I supported first responders, medical staff, military personnel/veterans, international humanitarian workers, law enforcement, and journalists. I've worked with individuals facing fertility and prepartum/postpartum challenges and implemented social-emotional learning for refugee children in Germany. Beyond my counseling role, I find joy in outdoor activities, travel, culinary exploration, and quality time with my husband.
