Verified clinicians have had their licenses confirmed by our staff at the time they create their profile. We also require all verified therapists keep their licensing information up to date in order to maintain verified status.
Send your prospective therapist a brief message about why you’re seeking support, your preference for in-person or telehealth services, and how you’d like to be contacted moving forward. Note: Answers to many common questions can be found on the therapist’s profile page. If this is an emergency, please call 911 or go to your nearest hospital.
Experienced psychiatric social worker and life coach focusing on working with clients to live intentionally to achieve their goals.
I have a widely varied background with experience in all aspects of mental health care. Starting as a social worker in a psychiatric hospital, moving to forensics, homeless outreach and then mental health administration, I have worked with many different diagnoses, especially people with chronic and persistent psychiatric illnesses. After 30 years in public mental health, I studied and began providing crisis intervention services, life coaching, career transition coaching, business development coaching, and consulting in mental health in addition to the clinical work.
I have a Master's Degree in Social Work, a Master's Degree in Business Administration, and am certified as a Life Coach, a Resilience Coach and am a Certified Clinical Trauma Professional. I thoroughly enjoy pulling from this varied background and experience to co-create a plan with my clients to identify and reach their optimum goals. Living intentionally with passion and purpose allows people to follow that path toward goal accomplishment. I will hold people accountable to the plans they develop with both compassion and firmness.
At the current time, I am licensed and practice in Maryland through telehealth. Thanks to the advent of HIPAA-compliant technology, this is now possible and provides a great way of interacting with clients who are a distance away from me. I look forward to speaking with you.
