You have already taken the first step! Something is going on in your life that has brought you here. Be proud that you are starting the process to explore your own mental health journey. My goal is to support you through this process and help facilitate the change you desire.

I am a clinical intern at Bowie State University in my last year of the Mental Health Counseling Program. When it comes to counseling, I focus on person-centeredness. My therapeutic approach is centered around you and may include aspects of Adlerian, cognitive behavioral therapy, motivational interviewing, and mindfulness. We will work together to identify the end result you desire. I am here to help you embrace the process of change, rediscover yourself, and find inner peace. Let’s get started by having a conversation: this is a safe space!

Finding a counselor that is best for you can be difficult. Here is some insight into who I am when I check out of work. Just like it’s important for you, I focus on my own self-care and recenter my energy with yoga, jogging, hiking, and fishing. Some days I turn into a chef, but most of the time I enjoy binge-watching the latest TV series.
