It would be my pleasure to help you and your family to reach your personal goals for emotional well-being. I am a certified Trauma Based Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (TF-CBT) clinician. TF-CBT is an evidence based treatment approach proven to help people cope with stressors and trauma. I have served for 9 years as a Clinical Psychologist at the Kennedy Krieger Institute, one of the nation's leading hospitals for children.


In addition to using Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, I am a Registered Yoga Teacher, co-author of the Yoga Based Psychotherapy Protocol for children, and developer of the R3 Yoga Based Therapy protocol for adults. As a seasoned trainer, presenter and counselor, I have combined my expertise in psychotherapy and integrative health to promote recovery, resilience and optimal wellness for individuals and families.
