I am a firm believer that there is no problem too trivial or too large if it is causing you distress. Our thoughts, emotions, and reactions to stressors can make a significant difference in how these events are managed, and there are times in which additional support is needed or desired. I am a licensed psychologist in the states of Maryland and California. I have been providing direct client care since 2005 within the mental health field. In utilizing Cognitive Behavioral Therapy and Dialectical Behavioral Therapy techniques, I also remain client focused and goal-oriented. My areas of interests include working with adults, adolescents, and children who have been impacted by depression, anxiety, grief/loss, those having difficulties with spiritual connections, and relationship issues/divorce. I have spent the past two years working in the health psychology field, assisting in improving the lives of those living with medical issues, including such illnesses as diabetes, pain, hypertension, and cancer. I also have a strong background in working with those who have severe and persistent mental illness, including such symptoms as psychosis and treatment-resistant depression. I enjoy working with clients to watch them grow and develop into who they are and who they want to be.
In my spare time, I enjoy travelling, reading, and interacting with others. I love participating in new and exciting experiences. I value having a healthy work/life balance and enjoy teaching others how to integrate the same into their lives. Please feel free to contact me if you have any questions or would like to establish care.
