My Approach to Helping
I provide short & longer-term treatment by collaborating with clients to determine an approach that best meets their needs.
SPECIALTIES: anxiety, depression, racial trauma, family conflict, LGBTQ challenges, parent-child relational issues, foster care, aging milestones and parenting & divorce with high conflict personalities.
MODALITIES: cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT), motivational interviewing (MI), and Brief Solution Focused Therapy. I have over 10 years of professional experience working with individuals and families involved in child welfare, juvenile justice system, and adult and aging services providing individual and family counseling.
I received a B.A. in Radio and Television from The George Washington University and spent 17 years in the television industry (C-SPAN, Fox News, Al-Jazeera English and the Discovery Channel). I have a MSW from Virginia Commonwealth University and began my social work career with foster care families before working with the elderly.
