As a therapist, I strive to provide those I work alongside with the support, knowledge, and resources most beneficial to them in the effort of helping them realize their full potential and bring about the positive change they seek. Though I am eclectic in my approach, I am first and foremost a Person-Centered therapist; I consider the therapeutic relationship to be the most critical component of the therapeutic process and I believe that it is only first through empathy, unconditional positive regard, and a genuine nature that a true alliance develops, trust can flourish, and success is had. From this foundation, I work with each of my clients to tailor a treatment plan that we, as a team, agree would serve them most beneficially, often employing theoretical concepts and techniques found in numerous other therapeutic modalities, including Interpersonal, Interpersonal Process, Cognitive Behavioral, Solution-Focused, and Mindfulness Therapy, to name a few.
I received my Master of Science from Loyola University Maryland in Clinical Psychology, during which time I was an extern first at Johns Hopkins University Hospital and then Union Memorial Hospital in Baltimore, MD. In these roles, I assisted in case management, conducted psychological assessment, and co-facilitated group therapy for individuals suffering from an array of mental illnesses ranging from substance abuse to mood disorders.
I am one of the newest members of the team at EDTC and am extremely excited to serve those seeking treatment for an eating disorder or otherwise. I hold the provision of therapy in the highest regard and am honored to help you make the healthy change you seek and attain the life you deserve.
