With 19 years of experience in counseling-related work, including 10 years with a successful private practice in Washington, DC, I bring a wealth of knowledge and experience to my counseling clients. Originally from the United States, I have also lived in France, Canada, and now Germany.
I am a Licensed Professional Counselor (LPC) in the District of Columbia, as well as a National Certified Counselor (NCC) in the United States. In Germany I hold the title of Heilpraktikerin für Psychotherapie. I earned a Master of Science in Clinical Mental Health Counseling from Loyola University in Maryland.
Through on-going post-graduate education and training, I stay current with the latest research in the field of counseling in order to provide my clients with the best possible care.
Along with clinical training in psychodynamic and cognitive-behavioral psychotherapies, I have received training in sandtray therapy, creative arts interventions, dream work, relaxation exercises, grounding techniques, mindfulness, meditation, and guided imagery. I work collaboratively with my clients, and I tailor my work to respond to the individual needs and wants of each of my clients within their unique life contexts.
