My Approach to Helping
Being a parent, family member or worker is an everyday challenge. Most of the time, we manage just fine. There are times, though, when life doesn't feel so manageable and we end up stressed and anxious, sluggish or unmotivated or we turn to substances to help us cope. If you find yourself feeling this way, I'd like to help.
As a licensed clinical social worker in Virginia and Maryland, I have over twenty years of experience working in short-term counseling, dealing with all sorts of issues ranging from anxiety, parenting issues, managing difficult people to substance abuse assessment and referral to treatment. I work with people to identify their strengths and resources, both internal and external, that are best for resolving issues. I am especially well-versed in helping people with anxiety and those who have inattention, impulsivity, hyperactivity, and other executive functioning weaknesses or parent a child with these issues.
