I became a Board Approved Licensed Professional Counselor in May 2018. Prior to becoming a therapist, I spent 15 years working for the State’s Attorney’s Office for Baltimore City as a law clerk and victim advocate for survivors of juvenile sexual assault cases. After becoming licensed I began working at an inpatient residential treatment program for adolescent males between the ages of 13-21. I have also worked for Balt. County Mobile Crisis Unit and as an outpatient mental health therapist providing therapeutic services to adolescents and adults.
I specialize in working with individuals with a variety of issues including anxiety, stress, depression, anger, low self-esteem and grief. My passion is counseling juveniles and young adults struggling with challenges such as low self-esteem, conduct disorder, ADHD, sexually problematic behaviors and aggression.
My practice is named to honor the life and the legacy of my stepbrother David, a victim of gun violence and my sister-friend Hope, who passed due to complications from HIV/AIDS at the beginning of the epidemic. My prayer is that I will be able to help light the pathway for someone who experiencing darkness and/or struggling with their mental Health.
