I graduated from William James College in 2010 with a Master Degree in Forensic and Counseling Psychology. I began my counseling career in Massachusetts, where I provided therapy services to culturally diverse clientele including adults, adolescents, and families who live with mental illness and substance abuse. I have provided services in a variety of settings throughout my training including, outpatient services, partial hospitalization, residential programs, community outreach and in- home therapy services. I am also a military spouse, and I have been an advocate for military families, to include important topics outside of therapy such as professional license reciprocity for military spouses.
In 2015, I relocated to North Carolina, where I joined Pinehurst Neuropsychology. While there, I provided individual therapy to adults living with depression, anxiety, trauma, and stressors specific to military spouses including deployment and living with a PTSD partner. Additionally, I provided caregiver support and adjustment to neurological conditions such as Parkinson’s disease, stroke, brain tumor and early stage dementia.
I have 10 years of counseling experiencing and have held licensure in 4 states. Currently I maintain active licenses to practice mental health counseling in both North Carolina and Maryland. In 2019, I established a private practice with Severna Park Wellness Center in Severna Park, Maryland and am an independent contractor for Pinehurst Neuropsychology, providing counseling via telehealth or distance counseling. My therapeutic style can best be described as supportive, client solution-focused therapy with influences of Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, and Acceptance Commitment Therapy. Areas of specialization include anxiety, depression, trauma, adjustment to medical and neurological conditions, caregiver support, and stressors related to a military lifestyle. My goal is to reduce the stigma and barriers of seeking counseling, help others develop emotional wellness, and maximize quality of life.
