THERAPEUTIC APPROACH

I am a native Washingtonian dedicated to the mental health and wellbeing of people in the District of Columbia, particularly of those with marginalized identities. For more than 30 years I have lived and worked in this city listening to my clients with great care and supporting them as they put the pieces of their life together like a puzzle to gain insight and connect their past and current experiences, moving towards helping them to heal their pain. 

 

AREAS OF EXPERTISE

Professional background within community organizations focused on those struggling with:

  • Women Issues

  • Trauma

  • Addictions

  • Grief and Loss

  • Sexual Assault

  • Intimate partner abuse/ Domestic Violence

Within each of these I have lead the organization in providing specialized services for those in the LGBTQ+ community by running groups and influencing the culture to serve the community's specific needs that too often have gone unmet.

PAYMENT POLICIES AND INSURANCE

I am a participating provider for Blue Cross/Blue Shield (CareFirst).
