    We are all on our own unique journey. My clinical approach embraces this idea and incorporates concepts from Mindfulness-Based Cognitive Therapy (MBCT) and Humanistic Therapy. Through collaboration, we will identify and address barriers to goal achievement, mental wellness, and overall well-being.

    My goal of our work together is to provide you with a space of genuineness, acceptance, and empathy. Within our sessions, I acknowledge my role of the listener and support an engaging environment. My current work focuses on individuals seeking help with life transitions, anxiety, depression, and stress management – as well as individuals living with chronic illness and family members/caregivers of those struggling with mental illness.

    With 8+ years of experience in the mental health field, I invite individuals from all walks of life to collaborate. My experience includes clinical research coordination for individuals living with serious mental illness; case management and support groups for individuals living with chronic illness (HIV/AIDS, Hepatitis); and counseling and assessments for individuals in Landlord-Tenant and Immigration Court cases.

    I received my Bachelor of Arts in Psychology and Master of Social Work from The Catholic University of America in 2014 and 2021, respectively. I currently practice under the direct, clinical supervision of Athena Gavaris, LICSW. At this time, I am an out-of-network provider – and am happy to assist in navigating the insurance world to minimize your out-of-pocket expense, as well as to discuss sliding scale options.
