    Let’s embark on a therapeutic journey tailored just for you. Together, we’ll explore the twists and turns, overcome challenges, and nurture your growth, aiming for overall balance and fulfillment. 

    In my practice, I blend Mindfulness-Based Cognitive Therapy, Psychodynamic Therapy, and Humanistic Therapy, creating a space that’s genuine and accepting. Through active listening, I’m here to not only guide you but to engage with you in a way that deepens self-awareness.

    I specialize in helping individuals navigating life transitions; managing anxiety, depression, and stress; and providing support for those managing chronic illnesses. Additionally, I offer my support to family members and caregivers of individuals facing mental health challenges.

    With over a decade of expertise in the mental health field, I extend an invitation to individuals of all backgrounds to embark on a therapeutic journey. My expertise encompasses clinical research coordination, case management, individual and group psychotherapy, and evaluations and assessments within various mental healthcare settings.

    I earned my Bachelor of Arts in Psychology in 2014 and later pursued my Master of Social Work, graduating in 2021 from Catholic University. Currently practicing under the direct clinical supervision of Athena Gavaris, LICSW, I offer my services as an out-of-network provider at a rate of $125 per session. My commitment is to provide a nurturing and professional environment, prioritizing confidentiality and the cultivation of a trusting therapeutic relationship, guiding you through your personal growth and well-being.
