I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker and a credentialed Play Therapist with over 9 years of experience working children and families.

I have a deep respect for a child’s ability to solve his/her problems and I give children the opportunity to do so. I specialize in child-centered play therapy, sandtray therapy and cognitive therapy. I have helped children, adolescents, families and adults cope with the experience of grief and loss and trauma. I have helped clients work through identity and self-esteem issues, anxiety, depression and family relationship problems.

In previous positions, I led a school-based mental health team, and my team and I provided behavioral support services and case management to over 400 children and families during my tenure.

I have presented on school-based mental health at The Center for School Mental Health National Conference and the Mental Health Association of the District of Columbia, and I have led child-centered play therapy trainings at National Center for Children and Families and District of Columbia Public Schools.

Additionally, I am a volunteer clinician at the William Wendt Center's Camp Forget-Me-Not/Camp Erin, a summer camp program that provides recreation and grief support groups for children.

In all life domains that are the focus of our work together, I will help you or your child(ren) to gain new insights, bolster your strengths and abilities and build adaptive strategies to cope with life’s challenges and changes.

My Core Beliefs

All beha​vior is purposeful. It must be viewed and understood in context. 

I believe that each individual has the right to their own story and feelings.

I believe that parents must be active partners in the therapeutic process.

I believe that acknowledging the truth about your thoughts, feelings and desires is the soul's filtration system.

I believe that change begins with thinking and you have the power to be the master of your thoughts.
