Hello, I am a social worker/therapist specializing in helping diverse people with grief, trauma, depression, and anxiety.
Social Worker in Baltimore, MD
I always adapt my treatment to the client. For trauma and stress disorders, I use EMDR to help people move past the emotional flooding that comes from experiencing traumatic triggers to allow your own strengths to assist you.
For those of us that have experienced major loss we know that our lives are forever divided into the time before and the time after that loss. Through psychoeducation and compassionate talk therapy, I help people move through their grief journey, process their pain, and develop a healthy relationship with their loss.
Anxiety can come from many different sources and be treated in many different ways. Whether you are experiencing anxiety for the first time due to a new transition in your life or anxious thoughts have been a lifelong companion, I can assist you in learning coping strategies to deal with anxiety in the moment. Further, I will help you identify the root of your anxiety and increase the calm in your life by utilizing your strengths.
For those seeking behavior change, dealing with low-motivation/depression, and struggling with addictions, motivation interviewing allows you to gain insight into the reasons "why" and unlock new perspectives that support your goals.
Yes, it looks weird. Yes, it works. It's not hypnosis. EMDR is one of the best treatment methods for confronting difficult and traumatic memories because of its proven track record. I have helped dozens of clients with a wide variety of problems including car accidents, assault, military service, medical trauma and more.
CBT is one of the most adaptable therapy methods that gets proven results. I have helped dozens of clients minimize anxiety, decrease depressive thoughts, increase their self-esteem using CBT mthods.
