About Me

I am a Marriage and Family Therapist licensed in both New York and Maryland. I have over 4 years of experience working with couples, young adults and teens in the school, clinic, and community settings. In my time as a counselor I have assisted individuals with working through issues such as: Depression, Anxiety, Stress, skill development, problem-solving,life transitions, as well as interpersonal conflicts.

As a Christian, we face so many daily struggles to remain faithful to our lifestyle for Christ and commitment to Him. It is always helpful to connect with others in the body of Christ to lean own, trust in, and grow with. Our light sets us a part and that can sometimes feel like a privilege but also can be hard. The important thing to remember is that you are not alone in anything that you go through. God's Spirit is with you. And not only is His spirit a helper,but your brothers and sisters who are trained as counselors are also available supports to you.

My counseling style is very flexible and creative. By God's grace,I find myself naturally being able to support and encourage, but also challenging clients as necessary. I believe in assisting others with being their highest self, because we all are so valuable.

It takes strength and courage to seek out support and assistance through therapy, and I will honor your vulnerability with confidentiality and respect. I look forward to being a part of your journey.

I recently wrote a book, aimed to help us a believers-specifically women, aim to ground ourselves in our relationship with God primarily and securely before “stretching ourselves thin” in our roles and responsibilities of other relationships.
