My practice is informed by extensive postgraduate training and a diverse range of experience. I help people face challenges, get to know themselves better, make sense of their experiences, and ultimately lead more aware, fulfilling lives. I work with young adults struggling to figure out who they are and what they want in life, and people coming to terms with aging or grieving a loss. I help couples dealing with infidelities, addictions,and communication issues. My previous academic and Wall Street career has provided me with a particular sensitivity to the kinds of problems that arise at school and in high-stress corporate environment.

I've been in practice since 2010, primarily serving the low-income minority populations of West Baltimore doing in-home psychotherapy. I've done extended training in CBT, clinical hypnosis, play therapy, and psychodynamic therapy. I'm doing analytic training because I've discovered that analytic thought has had more of an influence on my clinical work than anything I've done before. My ongoing goal is to provide quality psychotherapy to people with limited choices due to financial strain and other barriers.
The relationship between patient and therapist is the most important aspect of the therapy I practice. I’m also very interested in the unconscious – those things we don’t know or understand about ourselves, and about who, why, or how we are. Curiosity is the primary tool I bring to my practice of psychotherapy: I want to know what it is like to be you.
I have experience in both inpatient and outpatient settings. I work with adults suffering from anxiety, depression, out-of-control behavior, addiction, childhood trauma and sexual abuse, and other challenges.
I practice at the Sexuality, Attachment and Trauma Project, where I specialize in working with people’s relationship to their sexuality, informed by an understanding of the importance of their histories of attachment and trauma. I also practice under the auspices of CFS, through its Treatment Services program.
