My Approach to Helping

Are you at a proverbial crossroads in your life? How would it be to have a therapeutic sherpa to help navigate life's challenges and integrate them into your life as strengthening experiences for the rest of your journey? As a counselor, I am in the practice of creating a safe, nonjudgmental space offering authenticity and empathy with the intention of empowering you to thrive. Psychotherapy is a form of deep play because of its inherent supported risks and its exhilarating rewards. Influenced by mythologist Joseph Campbell's heroic cycle, I utilize eclectic and integrative tools to facilitate your healing quest. Specializing in addiction, anxiety, depression, grief, relational issues and trauma, my way of being in clinical practice is informed by person-centered therapy, psychodynamic theory, equine assisted modalities, family systems theory, bibliotherapy, gestalt and somatic psychology. Evidence-based mindfulness cognitive behavioral therapy is often a foundational treatment approach. I have maintained a personal meditation practice for over two decades.

More Info About My Practice

In addition to formal graduate studies, my practice is influenced by study at The Chopra Center, Tai Sophia Institute (now The Maryland University of Integrative Health), The Esalen Institute, Eponaquest with Linda Kohanov and the Hoffman Institute. After practicing as a primary therapist and as an equine assisted psychotherapist at both A Sober Way Home and Decision Point Center in Prescott, Arizona, I returned home to Baltimore as a licensed therapist in Maryland. I am a member of the American Counseling Association (ACA), The Equine Growth and Learning Association (EAGALA), Professional Association of Therapeutic Horsemanship International (PATH) and The United States Association of Body Psychotherapy (USABP).

Specific Issue(s) I'm Skilled at Helping With

"Ask not why the addiction, but why the pain?" With a dual master's degree in Counseling Psychology and Equine Assisted Mental Health from Prescott College, I have a specific interest and extensive practice in addiction and trauma treated through the lens of equine assisted modalities. My capstone graduate project, "The Heroine, the Horse and the Quest: A Brief Workshop for Addiction Utilizing Joseph Campbell's Hero's Journey as a Platform for Equine Assisted Mental Health and Alternative Modalities" fused my study of myth and metaphor with my passion for partnering with horses to create therapeutic movement. Following the work of Dr. Gabor Mate, the question is not why the addiction, but why the pain?

What I Love about Being a Psychotherapist

I love living the questions with a client on their personal journey and being with them when more is revealed as they live into the answers.

"Have patience with everything that remains unsolved in your heart. Try to love the questions themselves, like locked rooms and like books written in a foreign language. Do not now look for the answers. They cannot now be given to you because you could not live them. It is a question of experiencing everything. At present you need to live the question. Perhaps you will gradually, without even noticing it, find yourself experiencing the answer, some distant day". ~ Rilke
