My career in mental health began in 2006 while working in Florida's child welfare system after receiving my BS in Gerontology from Bethune-Cookman University. I knew I wanted to further my knowledge to make a more substantial and significant impact when working with children and their families. This led me to earn my Master's in Counseling in 2009 from Webster University and became a Licensed Mental Health Counselor. My clinical work experience includes working with children and their supportive caregivers who have been exposed to abuse and neglectful circumstance, adult survivors of childhood sexual abuse, and providing therapeutic interventions to inpatient adult clients who either were voluntarily or in-voluntarily placed at a crisis stabilization hospital. I hope you allow me to help you on your healing journey.

Hello! I am a Licensed Certified Social Worker- Clinical (LCSW-C) and Certified Clinical Trauma Professional (CCTP) in Maryland. I received my Bachelor’s in Psychology from Bowie State University, Master’s in Social Work from the University of Maryland, and I am currently working toward a Doctorate in Christian Counseling as well. I consider my studies a nice mixture of mind, body, and spirit so I can help people identify how they can truly thrive in all aspects of their life. I don’t look to solve people’s problems, I often provide short term, solution focused therapy to help people figure out how they want to manage their own stressors. I think equipping people with necessary tools for success is how people end up best equipped to take and keep control of their circumstances, once they have learned everything they can from our partnership. Don’t worry, I am patient and sensitive to people’s needs because I know therapy can be scary and peace my priority. However, I am a motivator and a teacher that is aiming for your success and healing at all times, so I tend to say what people need to hear, when they’re ready to hear it. Feel free to partner with me on your journey to recovery and see if I am a good fit for your needs.

I entered the behavioral health field after seeking professional help for substance abuse, depression, and anxiety. I became a Chemical Dependency Counselor in 1995 and received my MSW in Clinical Social Work from Ohio State in 2002. I have been a Licensed Independent Social Worker in Ohio since 2005. I became a LCSW in Pennsylvania in 2014 and an LCSW in Maryland in 2022. I have worked mostly with adults and some teenagers dealing primarily with depression, anxiety, and mood disorders. I have a holistic perspective of mental wellness and view counseling and other healthy life choices as a way to achieve personal empowerment and self-actualization. This includes family-of-origin work and working on letting go of ingrained thinking and behaviors that hold a person back from achieving the quality of life they want and deserve. I am trauma-informed and comfortable working with members of the LGBT community. I also have experience working with grief and loss issues. My primary modalities are Cognitive-Behavioral, Solutions Focused, and Acceptance Commitment Therapy. Counseling is a client-driven process and is about the issues and concerns the client wants to address and work on.
