My Approach to Helping

People often ask what to expect when they come to therapy. It’s an important question and a surprisingly difficult one to answer. Every therapy is tailored to the unique needs of the person with whom I am working. I try not to place restrictions on or boundaries around what might emerge for your therapy.

What I can tell you is what you can expect from me as your therapist. I will listen to you and your experience with intensity, curiosity, and care. I will do my very best to meet you where you are today. If you are unhappy with where that is, we will work together to understand what brought you here and how you might move forward.

More Info About My Practice

My practice is grounded in a contemporary relational psychodynamic perspective, which places the relationship between therapist and client as the primary vehicle for change. I have experience working with a diverse clientele, many of whom struggle with past trauma related to their race or ethnicity, sexuality, gender identity, or history of substance use.

I am a Licensed Graduate Professional Counselor (LGPC) and practice under the direct supervision of Rob Williams, LICSW. I have provided psychotherapy to adults in a variety of community-based mental health organizations. I hold an MA in Counseling from the University of the District of Columbia and a BA from St. John’s College in Annapolis, MD.
