I am a licensed clinical psychologist with over 10 years experience in private practice in the DMV region. I earned my Ph.D. locally, from the University of Maryland and completed both my internship and postdoctoral training at Children’s National Medical Center in Washington, DC. where I worked with a range of families on an outpatient and inpatient basis. Subsequently, I worked for over 8 years at the highly regarded cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) practice Alvord Baker & Associates, LLC before launching into my own practice.
My practice provides a range of therapy and consultation services for children, adolescents, and adults. Common concerns that present to my office include stress based conditions as well as mood and anxiety disorders. Please see services page for a more comprehensive overview. Cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) is the grounding basis for most treatment, and I also have certification in teaching mindfulness techniques to children.
I enjoy periodically providing educational presentations and workshops to the community as well as clinical supervision to trainees. My strengths as a clinician include my ability to make connections with people, a sense of humor and flexibility in my approach. I am mom to a very spirited young boy and live in Montgomery County, MD.
