Washington, DC Location
I am a board-certified mental health counselor with a background in treating trauma and addiction. My approach to therapy incorporates elements of Cognitive Behavioral Therapy and Humanistic Therapy to help clients align their thoughts, feelings, and behaviors with their values.
I believe clients have the power to improve their lives by reinterpreting their experiences and identifying what they can and cannot control. I also believe systemic injustices and entrenched hierarchies based on race, ethnicity, gender, sexuality, spirituality, class, ability, and other factors play important roles in shaping personal experiences. As a therapist, my goal is to help clients feel confident confronting their problems by exploring how their experiences, values, thoughts, feelings, and behaviors develop and change in context with the world around them.
I welcome a broad diversity of clients on my caseload and am not limited to treating any particular person or diagnosis. I am open to working with all ages and individuals, couples, and families alike.
I received my M.S.Ed. in School and Mental Health Counseling from the University of Pennsylvania and B.A. in Anthropology and Global Studies from Colby College.
