I’m Here to Listen
1322 Londontown Blvd
Eldersburg, MD 21784
I truly enjoy my job; being a therapist is my passion and calling. I am honored to learn about myself and the world from the people I sit with. I love watching each of my clients grow emotionally and achieve goals we develop together. I currently offer both in person and telehealth sessions. I'm working toward certification in Brainspotting. Brainspotting has been found to be the modality which offers clients the quickest and longest lasting healing from traumas and issues affecting their everyday life.
I received my Masters degree at Loyola University Maryland. I was privileged to work with cancer patients and their loved ones at St. Agnes Hospital‘s Cancer Center. I worked at Job Corps where I learned I am passionate about working with teens. I have also enjoyed working with children, tweens, teens, and adults in a local outpatient mental health facility. I am recognized by NBCC as a national board certified counselor and a member of Sigma Chi Iota and American Counselors Association.
As a single mom, I enjoyed watching my children grow into healthy, happy, responsible adults. I have worked in the Eldersburg area for over 25 years and take pride in being a part of the Carroll County community. I enjoy reading and pretending I’m a great singer, I listen to most music genres, and I've never met a dog I didn't want to take home with me (I like cats too, but I’m allergic to them).
I believe in a holistic approach to achieving mental, physical, and spiritual health and I look forward to contributing to your successes and growth. Let's work together to build your new beginning!
My focus is to help individuals heal, energize, and become aware of their strengths. I achieve this by helping you identify and own your strengths which oftentimes have been disregarded or ignored as a result of trauma, anxiety, and/or depression. Together, through therapy, we will develop a plan and find ways to achieve your goals.
As a society we have failed men by sending messages such as "big boys don't cry" and "just shake it off." You deserve a space to be able to process your emotions and I can provide that for you. The majority of my practice is made up of men seeking support for anger, anxiety, depression, relationship issues, career issues, and more.
Depression, fear, and anxiety are some of the most common and uncomfortable emotions we can experience in our lives. Through talk therapy I am able to help you restore motivation, perspective, and happiness you once had in your life. Identifying and developing your strengths will give you the confidence to tackle any obstacle you face.
Life is made up of building and maintaining relationships. If you’re looking to strengthen your emotional connection or break free from an unhealthy relationship I’m here to support you through the process.
Gender and sexual identity is a major part of who we are and how we present ourselves to the world. Thoughts and beliefs regarding identity can make navigating our world confusing and scary. Together you and I can build confidence to allow you to be the person you want to be or know you currently are.

Under Section 2799B-6 of the Public Health Service Act, health care providers and health care facilities are required to inform healthcare consumers not enrolled in a plan or coverage or a Federal health care program, or not seeking to file a claim with their plan or coverage both orally and in writing of their ability, upon request or at the time of scheduling health care items and services, to receive a Good Faith Estimate of expected charges.

"Wokini," translated from Lakota Indians, means "seeking a new beginning" or "seeking a new vision."
Almost 25 years ago I came across the word “wokini” and I knew it had a special meaning. At the time I was going through a difficult life transition and knew I needed a new vision and new beginning. Today, I’m here to help you seek your new vision and start your new beginning.
