I am a private practice LPCMH specializing in counseling for teens, adolescents and adults in and around Newark, Delaware, as well as online as needed. In addition, I and am part of the group private practice Bodhi focused on wellness and integrative health care as an LCPC located in Cecil County, MD. I meet with a broad spectrum of clients with varying needs, among which can include child therapy, coping for sadness and depression, and skills training for anxiety and stress management. My specialties focus around the adolescent and teen populations, those exploring gender identity, and members of the LGBTQ community.

Treatment Approach

As a theoretically oriented person-centered therapist, my therapeutic approach encompasses providing support and feedback to help clients effectively address personal life challenges both, past and present. This is done through mindful integration of complementary methodologies and techniques  to offer a highly personalized approach, tailored to the unique needs of each individual client. With compassion and understanding, I work together with my clients to help build on their strengths and attain the personal growth they are committed to achieving. Many successful treatment plans will utilize a foundation of Adlerian, cognitive/cognitive-behavioral, person-centered therapy then quickly move toward a tailored treatment plan and approach that includes tools to help sustain the growth experienced in regular therapy.

Additionally, there is a growing body of research that supports the practice of self-compassion and mindfulness in psychotherapy. Neuroscience research reveals individuals that practice these techniques are happier, more resilient, and better equipped to heal painful memories from the past. It is my honor and mission to help my clients move past what’s blocking them from reaching their full potential individually and in their relationships.

“What lies behind us and what lies before us are tiny matters compared to what lies within us.”
