About Me

 

I am a Licensed Clinical Professional Counselor in Germantown, Maryland with over 7 years of experience in the mental health field.  After I graduated from college, I worked in a Psychiatric Rehabilitation Program providing case management services and teaching life skills groups to adults with depression, anxiety, bipolar, and/or psychosis.  Throughout graduate school I worked at the National Alliance on Mental Illness in Montgomery County, MD (NAMI MC) providing referrals, advocating, and teaching others about mental illness to end the stigma.  I completed my graduate school internship at an outpatient mental health clinic mainly working with individuals with depression, bipolar, trauma, and/or psychosis.  In graduate school, I took an expressive therapy class where I learned how to incorporate art and sandtray into the process of healing.  Recently, I have become interested in play therapy and have been attending trainings to help children express and regulate their emotions.
