ABOUT

As a student in undergraduate school, I worked as a school counselor. I found gratification in easing people's minds about their future and securing healthy and long-lasting relationships. From there, I worked in case management in Washington, D.C. treating trauma and severe mental illness. This work was busy but invigorated me to treat trauma in individuals in my niche practice. My specialties include trauma, anxiety, depression, and couples counseling.

 

As a certified Prepare-Enrich Facilitator, I help couples improve intimacy, build trust and communication skills and assist couples with the next step in their relationship (even post infidelity). Utilizing the Gottman Relationship checkup helps with identifying couple strengths and growth areas that are addressed in couples counseling.
