I started professional life in advertising, receiving my Bachelor of Science in Marketing from the Robert H. Smith School of Business at the University of Maryland. I understand what it is like to work in an environment that demands long hours, meeting deadlines, and uncompromising excellence. I decided to make a change because I was not fulfilled, and wanted the opportunity to make a positive impact in a different way.
I went back to school receiving my Master of Science in Counseling from the Annette Caldwell Simmons School of Education and Human Development at Southern Methodist University. Since I began my work in mental health, I have had the opportunity to work with people of all ages, in many different settings. I have worked in hospitals, clinics, in the community, and have worked both as a clinician and as a director. My focus is on helping individuals, couples, and families with depression, low self-esteem, anxiety, abuse, crisis, trauma, LGBTQ+, and work related issues. I am thankful to be able to continue my work in private practice. A little bit about me. I’ve been an athlete beginning at the age of 5, lasting through all four years of Division I athletics, and I continue to stay active in different ways. I have even completed multiple endurance events. I also enjoy reading a wide variety of books from the classics, to fantasy and non-fiction. I mention this because I understand how great it can feel to accomplish something, but also know what it is like to struggle and fall short. Working together we can figure out a pragmatic approach to addressing your concerns, and have a little fun along the way.
