I am a Licensed Certified Social Worker, Clinical who offers individual and couples counseling services to address personal goals and mental health concerns. I tailor dialog and treatment plans to meet my client’s unique and specific needs. I meet the client where they are and work collaboratively to achieve those goals. It takes courage to seek a more fulfilling and happier life and to take the first steps towards a change. If you are ready to take that step, I am here to support and empower you. My counseling style is warm and interactive. I believe in treating everyone with respect, sensitivity, and compassion. My approach combines cognitive-behavioral and solution-based therapy. I have worked with clients with a wide range of concerns including depression, anxiety, relationship issues, parenting problems, ADHD, chronic health issues and perinatal mental health including postpartum depression.

Life Outside the Office
I have called Anne Arundel County home for the past 18 years. My husband and I recently moved to Edgewater where we are raising our 3 children. When I am not working, you can find me on various ballfields cheering on my children’s sports teams or at the beach, usually engrossed in a good book. I also enjoy spending time with family and friends.
