Exceeding Expectations One Patient at a Time
I earned my B.S. in Psychology and Philosophy from the University of Pittsburgh and received my doctorate in clinical psychology from The George Washington University. I am a Licensed Clinical Psychologist in Maryland and have experience working in outpatient mental health clinics and various college counseling centers throughout the DMV.
I work with adolescents and adults with concerns including depression, anxiety, identity concerns, adjustment and life transitions, grief and loss, relationship issues, and finding meaning and purpose in life. I am particularly passionate discussing and exploring multicultural concerns related to race, gender, LGBTQ identity, socioeconomic status, and religious affiliation and nationality. I employ an integrative approach to mental health and wellness, utilizing psychodynamic, interpersonal, cognitive behavioral therapy, and humanistic or existential theories. I believe that lasting change is driven by a warm therapeutic relationship, emotional attunement, and the development of insight. As a therapist, my goal is to help you work toward a state of awareness, a sense of empowerment, and a feeling of fulfillment.
