Professional Background

I have had the pleasure of learning and growing through my work with a diverse group of clients. Within my time at Family Therapy center of Bethesda I have worked with children, teenagers, adults, families, and couples. I have helped young adults find balance in life responsibilities, manage stress, and cope with the overall transitional struggles that come along with this time period. In my work I have focused most often on navigating anxiety, depression, executive functioning difficulties, trauma, intrusive thoughts and grief. In co-parenting, premarital, and couple’s counseling, I help provide conflict management strategies and communication skills. I also provide psychoeducation and resources to parents and families on children’s expected developmental and social-emotional milestones at a specific age. I consult with parents to teach new strategies for approaching and managing presenting problems or behavioral difficulties.

I have been a therapist in a middle and elementary school in Baltimore City Public Schools. During that time, I was able to run a group for middle school students struggling with issues at home to improve their self-confidence and address other factors that were affecting their mental health or daily functioning in a school setting. My experience taught me the importance of collaboration and communication amongst a child’s therapist, teachers, and parents. I enjoyed the opportunity to advocate for children, ensure that they are getting the accommodations they need, and create a safe space for learning.

I have had the privilege of working at a family outpatient mental health clinic. This gave me the opportunity to practice diagnosis and treating a wide range of mental health disorders. At this clinic I co-lead a social skills group and a women’s trauma group. Working in this setting allowed me treat parents, couples, children, families, and individuals of all ages. At the clinic, if clients were on medication, I would coordinate with the psychiatrist to be able to provide the client with the best form of care.

I also had the amazing opportunity of volunteering at Walter Reed with soldiers and their families. It was incredibly meaningful to assist with the reuniting of families and integration of proper care for soldier’s injuries or trauma. I am excited to continue expanding my professional experiences as a therapist at Family Therapy Center of Bethesda! I look forward to helping clients grow and providing the best treatment tailored to their needs.

My Therapy Style

I believe that it is essential for a client to find the right fit for their therapist. I want the client to know that my office is a safe space and I will do everything I can to help them navigate and advocate for them through the tough times in their life. I strive to create a relationship built on trust, communication, growth and respect. Coming from a Greek background influences my desire to maintain cultural competence and tailor therapy to best support one’s beliefs and values. I want the client to feel valued and reassured that they are heard. I emphasize a strength-based approach and client centered therapy to help the client progress toward their treatment goal. A few other modalities I use are Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Structural Family Therapy, and Motivational Interviewing. My goal as a therapist is to help be a supportive bridge for clients as they go through uncomfortable and hard times while they are adjusting to life changes on their path to recovery.

A Little Bit About Me Outside of the Therapy Room

When I am not in the office, you can find me spending time with my family and friends. I love traveling to new places and being outdoors as much as possible. Most summers I head back to Greece for a week or two to catch some sun, see the beautiful blue waters and visit my family there.
