My Approach to Helping

I am a clinical psychologist and have been licensed in the State of Maryland for 14 years. I was born in St. Lucia, West Indies and immigrated to Brooklyn, New York as an adolescent. My personal knowledge and clinical training working with English-speaking immigrants has resulted in significant understanding and expertise in family re-unification, challenges related to dual identity and adjustment in multigenerational households.

I received my master’s and doctoral degrees from Pennsylvania State University and clinical training through the Mount Sinai School of Medicine at Elmhurst Hospital in Queens, New York. I moved to Maryland in 1998 to provide administrative, clinical, and supervisory services in the Department of Psychiatry and Behavioral Health Services at Johns Hopkins in Baltimore. Initially, I provided school-based mental health services in a Baltimore City public school but my last position was at Hopkins was as Director of the Child and Adolescent Psychiatry Outpatient Programs.
