I am Licensed Certified Social Worker, Clinical in Maryland and have been working with
adult clients for over 12 years. I have experience working in psychiatric hospitals, maximum
security forensic hospitals, and primary care offices. These experiences are implemented in
my evidence-based and solution-focused approach, integrating a wide variety of treatment
modalities such as acceptance and commitment therapy (ACT), cognitive behavioral therapy
(CBT), prolonged exposure therapy (PET), mindfulness, psychodynamic and more.
I served several years in the United States Army and United States Navy. As a former
member of active military service, I understand the unique demands placed on military
members, veterans, and their families. Helping individuals transition from military to civilian
life and process military experiences are a major focus of mine.
My clinical experience includes evaluating, diagnosing, and treating a wide range of
disorders in adults (ages 16+) including depression, anxiety disorders, stress/anger
management, mood disorders, posttraumatic stress, dual diagnosis, relationship/marital
I received my Master of Social Work Degree from the University of Maryland-Baltimore in
2011, which included completing two clinical internships: The first internship took place at
Sheppard Pratt – Ellicott City and the second at Clifton T. Perkins Hospital Center; a
maximum-security forensic hospital located in Jessup, Maryland. Following my internship at
Clifton T. Perkins, I was hired by the Maryland Department of Health and Mental Hygiene to
work with individuals court ordered to maximum security facilities.
Life Outside the Office
I am a native of New York that traveled all over the country during my military years. I have
called Maryland home since moving here with my wife and son in 2007. In my free time I
enjoy being with my family. Hobbies include travel, sports, digital art and photography.
