Greetings, I am a licensed clinical professional counselor in the state of Maryland. But first and foremost I am a life long woman of faith. I believe in God and apply biblical principles not only in my life, but in my work. I use biblical principles as a guide.
I have more than 10 years of experience assisting persons related to career difficulties, the loss of a loved one to suicide, the loss of sight and sound, life changes (planned and unplanned), criminal justice involvement (including sex offenses), moving forward after being a victim of a crime, caring for elderly parents as well as loved ones of all ages who have special needs. In addition, I am experienced in assisting persons who have the Highly Sensitive Person (HSP) trait/ Sensory Processing Sensitivity, need help establishing boundaries, and in identifying techniques for dealing with people different from themselves (politically, economically, etc.) as well as with those who are simply difficult.
While I can assist clients with almost any life circumstance, I am the counselor for the client who wants to take a biblical based and goal oriented approach to better mental health and work on achieving specific goals. My focus is to empower clients through their circumstance by affording supporting scriptures, organization, strategy and a host of therapeutic interventions.
This means, if you decide to work with me, you are ready to reflect on scriptures, build an action plan, set goals, do homework and be held accountable each week.
My motto: better is possible. Better coping, outcomes, focus, relationships, etc. is possible, especially with God.
I use a combination of cognitive behavior therapy, (which involves assessing thoughts, feelings, and behaviors then developing ways to make changes in those areas to feel and function better) and Solution Focused Therapy. My approach is client-centered meaning that you, the client, set the goals for therapy. Additionally, case management is a large part of my work resulting in resource recommendations and assistance structuring your life to make the obtainment of your goals possible.
I have a master's degree in Rehabilitation Counseling. I served as a counselor to persons who were court involved. I was an employment union chapter representative assisting people in processing their emotions and developing action plans to confront workplace injustices. I served as a hotline and mobile crisis team counselor, during which I met with clients in the community. In addition, I facilitated a support group for persons who lost loved ones to suicide.
I am here to empower and help you, not judge you. I want to help you eradicate limiting thoughts, feelings, and behaviors so you can achieve your goals.
I am available Mondays through Thursdays during the day, evenings, and some Fridays during the day. I respond to all correspondence sent Monday through Thursday within 24 hours and by Monday to all correspondence sent Friday through Sunday. I encourage regular communication (voice and chat/ text) between sessions.

Bridgette will tell you what you need to hear, not what you want to hear. It's only right to learn the truth about yourself and what's going on around you.
She’s extremely helpful, professional, and caring. She has helped me immensely in the past month, helping me return to a functioning person again. Could not thank her enough. Great counselor, knowledgeable, and will explain why you feel the way you do, as well as articles and books to read in your own time. She knows a wealth of verses and how to use them to speak truth.
