I am a Baltimore-based psychotherapist who has treated individuals, couples and families for almost a decade. I specialize in treating adjustment and trauma related disorders, mood disorders, and anxiety, particularly in adolescents and young adults.
My experiences as a musician and writer — I received my undergraduate degree in English Literature and creative writing from Goucher College — have helped shape both my training as a social worker and the way I work with my clients. Applying a person-centered, empathic approach allows me to pay close attention to the narratives and repeating patterns in their lives. From childhood, people are drawn to reading and listening to stories, and as we grow we seek out new stories and begin to tell our own. Oftentimes, we relive these same tales, knowingly and unknowingly, rather than beginning new ones. Every story is both unique and universal in some way; I want to help my clients gain insight as they decide what they want to keep, change, and let go from their narratives.
Over the years I’ve come to the belief that there are several therapeutic paths to healing, a sentiment that I know is shared among the holistic practitioners that are so highly esteemed at Woodberry Wellness. I’m thrilled to have found a space here to grow my practice.
My style of therapy is suitable for people of all backgrounds and genders, and I encourage clients to call me for a free consultation to ensure that they have found a good match.
I am currently available by appointment on Mondays only, and I am taking out of network and fee for service clients at this time. I will be accepting Carefirst Blue Cross Blue Shield and EHP insurances in the coming months. I am also conversationally fluent in the Russian language.
