About My Clients
I provide individual therapy for children, adolescents and adults as well as couples sessions. My main focuses are anxiety, depression and mood disorders, though I help clients with other disorders and concerns. I especially enjoy working with young adults navigating times of transition, social pressures and stress.
My Background and Approach
In 1995, I graduated from the University of Maryland School of Social Work with a master's degree. From there I worked for 8 years at The Johns Hopkins Hospital in the inpatient child and adolescent psychiatric unit as well as The Johns Hopkins University psychiatry outpatient clinic. I spent the next 8 years serving as an upper school counselor at the Friends School of Baltimore before going to work at Jewish Community Services in Baltimore, delivering therapy in a community mental health center. In 2013 I started my own private practice. I take a client centered approach which means that I work with you, to determine your diagnosis and which courses of treatment will best suit your needs. These include approaches that might or might not be familiar to you now- cognitive behavioral therapy, dialectical behavior therapy and acceptance commitment therapy. I also provide parent training that emphasizes behavioral management skills.
