MS, LGPC in Maryland Joyful Life Counseling

Introduction

Perhaps you feel sad, incapable, overwhelmed or responsible for the hardships you've suffered either personally or between other people? Is your self-understanding based on how other people think or treat you? Whatever your struggle, the first step is finding support. I know asking for help can be hard and may seem to make things worse, like your fears are real. But let me pause and remind you that your life does not have to be dictated by others or negative feelings. Finding true freedom in relationships and with yourself is really possible! You just have to take that first step, in fact you're already doing it. Together we can work on relationship issues and develop healthy boundaries to express yourself with confidence. We will focus on the many parts of you, and how this connects to your identity, relationships and mental health. We'll figure out new skills to navigate life and create a plan to help you experience freedom, stability, and peace of mind. I have specialty in trauma and enjoy working with family issues and conflict on an individual level. I am open to exploring religious identity and spiritual values with my clients. I also enjoy working with other other mental health clinicians, medical professionals, and caregivers and firmly believe that healers need healing too!
