My Approach to Helping
I am a Licensed Graduate Professional Counselor with a Master’s Degree in Clinical Mental Health Counseling at George Washington University, Washington, D.C. I am DBT trained by Dr. Alec Miller on the Foundations of DBT for Adolescents and their families and am actively receiving training in Child Centered Play Therapy under Stephanie Miller LCPC, RPT.
During my time in graduate school, I worked as a Registered Behavior Technician in the DC/Maryland area for 3 years supporting children with autism in their homes and schools.
Since beginning my career in private practice, I have found fulfillment in working with children and their families who have received a neurodiversity diagnosis, as well as families who struggle with children who are experiencing big emotions, as well as young adults who are experiencing significant change (college, moving, death in family, spiritual changes/abuse etc.) I am a published researcher, with experience in analyzing social bias in education settings, and the impact of religion in communities, recently trained in the foundations of deprogramming those affected by mind control, high authority/high control groups and/or cults through Dr. Steve Hassan and the Freedom of Mind Foundation.
