I am a licensed therapist in Virginia, Washington, DC, and New York with over 17 years of experience working as a counselor in different settings, and garnered different experiences along the way. I have a bachelor of science degree in Psychology and master of science degree in mental health counseling. I have worked with clients with a wide range of concerns including depression, anxiety, relationship issues, parenting problems, career challenges, OCD and ADHD. I also helped many people who have experienced physical trauma or emotional abuse. My counseling style is warm and interactive. I believe in treating anyone with respect, sensitivity, and compassion, and I don't believe in stigmatizing labels. My approach combines cognitive-behavioral, humanistic, solution focused, reality therapy counseling. As I get to know you on a professional level, I will tailor our dialog and treatment plan to meet your unique and specific needs. It takes courage to seek for a more fulfilling and happier life and to take the first steps towards a change. If you are ready to take that step I am here to support and empower you, with a non-judgmental listening ears and open heart to provide positive feedbacks and helpful tools and resources. I look forward to working with you!
