As a Licensed Clinical Social Worker, I place a high level of importance on establishing both trust and honest communication.
My journey to empowering and counseling others began at West Chester University where I earned my Bachelor’s Degree in Psychology. I went on to complete my Master’s Degree at the University of Maryland (Baltimore); specializing in Mental Health. Thereafter I obtained my Clinical License and have practiced in Delaware, Washington, D.C., and Pennsylvania.
Starting from a Strength-Based theory, my approach is eclectic to suit the individual, but highly informed by the Cognitive Behavioral and Dialectical Behavioral models.
Over the last several years I’ve enjoyed working with adolescents and (early to mid) adults; working collaboratively to manage their symptoms of Depression, Generalized Anxiety, Self-Esteem/Self-Image, Bipolar Disorder, Stress Management, Co-Occurring Substance Use, and Family/Relationship Dynamic Issues.
We all face serious challenges in life; it is our human condition. How we face, and try to overcome, them is what I look forward to doing with you and/or your loved one.
