I'm a clinical social worker (licensed in Maryland), marriage and family therapist, Reiki Master and student of energy healing. I have extensive experience working with individuals, couples and groups as well as leading workshops. My psychotherapy practice focuses on life transitions, personal and spiritual growth, couples' communication and loss, grief and healing. I have a particular interest in the mind-body connection and creatively integrate physical, mental, spiritual and emotional awareness in my work.
As with most people, life experience informs how I approach the therapeutic relationship. My knowledge and understanding has been enhanced by my own healing journey. Synthesizing life experiences with professional knowledge, including insights from the many people with whom I've worked, led me to co-author Grief Work ~ Healing from Loss, The Grief Work Companion ~ Activities for Healing and Grief Work for Teens Healing from Loss.
I bring energy, enthusiasm and compassion to my work.
