I work with adults to process and gain skills to manage or eliminate frequent grief and loss; influence of culture on immigrant women's mental health; anxiety and depression; women's issues that affect women’s self-concept and self-esteem; parent-child relationship problems; strained adult sibling relationships; women impacted by past or ongoing marital conflict, divorce or separation; and depression or anxiety developed during pregnancy or after childbirth that causes behavioral and emotional issues.
By processing past and ongoing relationships and experiences, values, beliefs, goals and desires, my clients learn and develop more effective ways of thinking and behaving and leverage their strengths toward meeting their goals. When I work with clients, what emerges is an individual who makes conscious choices; is more grounded, assertive, confident; has the ability to regulated emotionally; can discern and communicate their own needs and set boundaries; and is able to gain and experience greater satisfaction, contentment and joy.
I facilitate processing of experiences, thoughts and emotions and developing short and long-term interventions and strategies for irrational thinking patterns, generational, relational and individual trauma, grief and loss, identity issues, frequent worry and sadness, aging, caretaker stress, parent-child relationship difficulties, frequent conflict in relationships and adverse childhood experiences.
We'll incorporate cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) to change harmful/irrational thinking that results in behaviors that are frustrating or unsatisfactory (eating, drinking, sleeping, scrolling, yelling, avoidance etc.) and low mood states. My holistic approach provides clinical support that takes physical, emotional, social and spiritual wellbeing into consideration. While using traditional therapy approaches, I take into account each client's culture (race, age, gender, sexual identity and orientation, religion etc.) and the different systems that affect the client psychologically--no broad strokes.
I will support you in understanding your strengths and needs and collaborate with you to create and maintain meaningful and healthy relationships – with yourself and others. You'll benefit from my warm validation, compassionate questioning, sensitive suggestions, unique insights, and careful listening as we work toward understanding belief systems, emotional responses and reactions.
I received my Master of Social Work in Advanced Clinical Placement from the University of Maryland Baltimore. I'm certified by the Maryland Board of Professional Therapists and Counselors to provide supervised assessment, diagnostic and therapy treatment services.
