I have 17 years of counseling experience in a wide range of settings. I received my B.A. in Psychology from the University of Delaware in 1997 and my Master’s Degree in Clinical Community Counseling from Johns Hopkins University in 2002.
In 2016, I received training in Eriksonian Hypnosis through the American Hypnosis Training Academy in Rockville, MD and I have received private training in hypnosis through Patti Sapp at Quiet Time Hypnosis in Ellicott City, MD. I am certified both through the National Board of Certified Clinical Hypnotherapists and through The American School of Hypnosis.
In my practice, I provide both hypnotherapy and counseling services. I provide hypnosis services for anxiety, depression, self-esteem, public speaking, weight loss, smoking cessation, and managing autoimmune disorders (for a full list, please go to my website.)
The counseling aspect of my practice, is geared more towards women (although I do have male clients.) As a woman myself, I understand the complexity of the lives we lead. We wear many different hats on a daily basis that pull us in different directions. We disperse our energy in different directions and give so much of ourselves. In order to feel fulfilled we also need time to connect with our “inner wild side”. We need to be able to comfortably express our unique identity. Through the use of Cognitive Behavioral Therapy and Mindfulness, I help to empower women. After working with me, I want women to understand. love, and be proud of who they are as unique individuals. I want women to lead the joyful and happy lives they deserve.
