My Approach to Helping

I love doing therapy, because I believe it works, even when people have experienced long and difficult struggles. I love solving the new "puzzle" that each new person brings, and believe that solving that puzzle together makes us both feel hopeful and energized. People from all generations, personal situations, and walks of life are welcome in my office. I listen a lot, and I'm non-directive, but far from silent. I will provide as much structure as you need to feel comfortable, but try to stay out of your way as you develop your own insights and action plans. Building trust and rapport is important, and I will work hard to understand what you need to do that. We'll work together to stabilize distressing emotions and solve immediate real problems that are creating a crisis, then collaborate on longer-term goals to understand causes and old patterns so that new strengths and strategies can grow.

More Info About My Practice

My standard fee for service is $140. I offer a reduced fee of $100 to self-supporting students, single parents and unemployed people who are experiencing significant financial stressors, but my ability to accept discounted-fee patients is limited. I currently participate in the following insurance plans: BCBS PPO, Medicare (but not Medicaid), Coventry, Kaiser Perm Select (high option), Johns Hopkins Employee Health Plan, American Psych Systems (APS), and any other plan that offers Out-of-Network coverage. My office is located in the Rotunda in the Hampden neighborhood of Baltimore, is handicap accessible, and is on the #22 MTA bus line. It's close to JHU Homewood campus and can be reached via the JHU or BlueJay shuttles.

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

I have extra training, experience and expertise is helping people who are dealing with extended stress and traumatic stress, such as PTSD, critical life experiences (e.g. crime or violence experiences, sudden disaster or unemployment, etc.), significant personal losses or life transitions, or a history of trauma or abuse. Lots of people in these and other situations are struggling with grief, loss of hope or trust - these are problems that we can often make better together.
