My Background and Approach

I have worked in the mental health field for 7 years, specializing in trauma and sex therapy. I completed my undergraduate degree in Bachelor of Science in Psychology at University of Illinois in May, 2002. In May 2011, I earned a Master of Social Work from Virginia Commonwealth University along with a Post-Baccalaureate in Gender Violence Intervention. I successfully completed the University of Michigan Sexual Health Certificate Program in March, 2018. I have been involved in the planning several local Pride events. I was on the Maryland Human Sex Trafficking Task Force. I provide trainings on LGBTQIA+, domestic violence, and child abuse. I bring this experience into my sessions. I provide education- without lecturing- to allow people to make informed decisions about what is the best decision for their life. My role is not to tell you what to do, but to learn how to respond in better ways than before whether new copings skills or challenging negative thoughts.

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

I believe that mental health care is as important as our medical health care. We go to the doctor for regular check-ups, I feel that our mental health care should be viewed in the same fashion. We can go to learn new skills to handle stress, to navigate through difficult times, to sort through past traumas, to work through identity questions, and to learn new communication techniques. In addition to believing that taking care of our mental health, I believe it should be affordable. Please visit https://openpathcollective.org/ if determine if you qualify for a reduced fee rate. I leave a few spots for those that require reduced fees. I am involved in my local Pride center and my local Domestic Violence agency as both causes are close to my heart. Random personal facts: I enjoy the outdoors whether camping or hiking. I love my family and pets (3 cats and a dog). I like sci-fi books and movies. Swimming is my sport to participate in and Hockey is my sport to watch.
