Directness with ease, light humor, and compassion is my approach to counseling. I take much time getting to know you and breaking down the stereotypes that exist about seeking help. Many of my clients often gladly remark on how counseling with me is informal and comfortable. I believe that is because I meet you where you are while providing you with new insights and different ways to understand your problems. I understand how our experiences, families, and cultures shape much of our behaviors and emotions, and always consider group diversity and individuality as a result. I also like to infuse pop culture references as well as quotes into my sessions. My favorite quote: "If I didn't define myself for myself, I would be crunched into other people's fantasies for me and eaten alive." ~Audre Lorde
I am a counseling psychologist licensed in the state of Maryland. I received my doctorate and master's degree from Lehigh University and have published and presented nationally and internationally on cultural considerations in identity exploration and counseling as well as diversity issues in higher education.
