About My Clients

Navigating the intricacies of a chronic illness impacts the person w/ the illness as well as the caregiver and family. I work w/ couples, families, and individuals struggling w/ anxiety, depression, and communication. It may be difficult for others to understand how stressful, overwhelming, and frustrating it can be w/ day-to-day life from managing an illness, relationships, career, and household. In therapy, you’ll learn coping strategies to help manage taxing life events.

How I Can Help You

I'm licensed in Maryland & New York. I received a doctorate in Marriage & Family Counseling at the University of Akron, specializing in couples and families struggling w/ chronic illness. I’m a firm believer in a holistic approach. I use systemic and culturally-sensitive approaches when working with clients so you’ll be able to understand how family of origin, generational patterns, and behavior/thoughts impact who you are and your communication style. Recognizing how past generations have shaped who you are in the present can make a difference in understanding your overall being. For example, how you deal with stress, how you interact with others, and how you feel about yourself, generally stems from past experiences and upbringing which can impact overall physical, emotional, and mental health. I factor in the role race/ethnicity, gender identity, sexual orientation, socioeconomic status, and spirituality have influenced your life.

Why I Became a Therapist

I’m passionate about working with this community due to my lived experience w/ illness as well as being a caregiver. I've worked with clients from various cultural, racial/ethnic, and spiritual backgrounds while advocating to reduce the stigma towards receiving mental health services in the BIPOC community.
