I help people who struggle with depression, anxiety, or relationship difficulties find relief and feel better about themselves.
Clinical Social Worker in Rockville, MD
People who experience trauma experience a wide-range of symptoms, including, emotional overwhelm, numbing, decreased concentration, irritability, chronic pain, substance abuse, shame, depression, and anxiety. Trauma informed therapy understands that these symptoms are a reflection of a nervous system that is in rough shape. I bring a variety of skills to my work with survivors, including TIST, psychoeducation, mindfulness, and somatic skills, to help people reclaim enjoyment in life.
People naturally understand that they have different parts of their personality. Internal Family Systems builds on this way of understanding ourselves. When I integrate this model into my work, my clients are able to bring more compassion, courage, calm and creativity to themselves and others. This helps bring more satisfaction into their lives and relationships.
