Are you struggling with issues related to trauma, grief, anxiety, or major life changes? There comes a time when help is needed from a certified professional to cope with many of life’s challenges. I’m a Licensed Clinical Social Worker/Therapist located in Catonsville, Maryland, and I’m here to support you on your journey toward healing and self-discovery


Hello and welcome to my practice.  I have developed skill and expertise by providing mental health treatment in a variety of settings for over 30 years. During those years, I received ongoing training and education to develop clinical knowledge and skill to understand each unique individual. Learning through substantial experience as a member of  interdisciplinary teams in various settings, working closely with psychiatrists, nurses, physicians, patients and staff  has given me invaluable skills, resources and expertise to apply to every present moment.

About Me

I completed my Masters Degree at UMAB, graduating Magna Cum Laude.  During college, I completed two years of internships. Prior to graduation, I also worked on the Statewide Crisis Hotline, and for Grassroots Shelter while raising my two children. Upon graduation, I completed an additional two years of supervised experience and passed two state board exams to obtain my LCSW-C. 


For decades after college, I put in the hard work of learning about mental health, about people, and about what really works to help them, by being a psychotherapist on various interdisciplinary teams. We rolled up our sleeves together to get people through tough times. Learning through working with top specialists, as well as patients and their families has given me invaluable resources and expertise to apply to your care.  I was also called upon to supervise and train other therapists while continuing to provide therapy at the largest mental health system in Maryland. My clinical knowledge and training are consistently updated through seminars and networking. 


I bring this to you, in all of our work together. No matter how large or how small you feel your struggles are, if they are disturbing you, I can help.  Reaching out for help is hard! Let me set you at ease.
