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.
