10 years of experience

Hi! I’m a Licensed Clinical Professional Counselor (LCPC) based in Maryland. I received my Masters's degree from the University of Baltimore, and have been practicing for over 10 years. I help adults struggling with the fallout from trauma learn how to decrease symptoms of anxiety. Through our work together, we'll help you develop a tailored plan to decrease your anxiety and improve your quality of life.

What can clients expect to take away from sessions with you?

In your first session with me as a therapist specializing in anxiety, the primary focus will be on getting to know you and understanding your concerns. Here's what you can generally expect: 1. Initial Assessment: We'll begin by discussing the reasons you sought therapy and what specific symptoms or challenges you're experiencing related to anxiety. This will help me gain a comprehensive understanding of your situation. 2. Building Rapport: Establishing a trusting and supportive therapeutic relationship is crucial. I'll encourage you to express yourself openly and honestly, and I'll listen attentively without judgment. 3. Psychoeducation: I'll provide you with information about anxiety, including common symptoms, triggers, and coping strategies. This can help you better understand what you're experiencing and how therapy can help. 4. Goal Setting: Together, we'll identify specific goals you hope to achieve through therapy. These goals will guide our work together and serve as markers of progress. 5. Exploration of Coping Mechanisms: We'll discuss any coping mechanisms or strategies you currently use to manage anxiety. This may involve exploring their effectiveness and identifying any harmful patterns. 6. Treatment Planning: Based on our discussion and assessment, we'll collaboratively develop a personalized treatment plan tailored to your needs and goals. This may involve a combination of therapeutic approaches such as cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT), mindfulness techniques, relaxation exercises, or others. 7. Setting Expectations: I'll provide you with information about what to expect from therapy, including the frequency and duration of sessions, confidentiality, and the role of homework or assignments between sessions. Overall, the first session is a crucial step in our therapeutic journey together. It lays the foundation for our work and ensures that we're aligned in our understanding of your needs and goals. Remember, therapy is a collaborative process, and I'm here to support you every step of the way.

Explain to clients what areas you feel are your biggest strengths.

Having worked with veterans and civilians with significant trauma history over the past ten years, I’ve developed a system of options for how to help you decrease your anxiety and relearn how to enjoy your life.
