Hello – and welcome!

Let me tell you a little about myself. My first position as a Social Worker was in treatment foster care in West Baltimore. I fell in love with this complicated city and have called it home ever since. My large family and my travel experiences as a military kid shaped who I am and how I practice therapy. CBT is my passion and I firmly believe the therapeutic relationship is the most important aspect of therapy.

I received my Masters in Social Work from The Catholic University of America in 1994. I’m a licensed clinical social worker with over 25 years of experience as a therapist. In addition to my start in foster care, I bring a variety of experiences from my background that include emergency room psychiatric evaluations, and school counseling. As a member of the International OCD Foundation, I was trained through the BTTI (Behavioral Therapy Training Institute) in Exposure Response Prevention for OCD. In 2014 I trained with the Beck Institute in Philadelphia and successfully completed their certification program. I am a Beck Institute Certified CBT Master Clinician. I hold a faculty position at Beck and provide supervision for therapists seeking CBT certification. I immensely enjoy mentoring.


I specialize in treating various anxiety disorders and OCD. A fundamental goal with all of my clients is helping them learn to live with uncertainty and manage the inevitable changes that life brings to all of us.
