How I practice. I provide individual and couples counseling.  Areas of specialization include anxiety, anger, depression, stress management, and couples' concerns. I offer day, early evening, and some weekend sessions. I accept private pay only and am conveniently located in Kensington, MD and centrally located to the Bethesda, Rockville, and Silver Spring, MD vicinity.
As a licensed social worker, I assist others with seeking and becoming the change they wish to see.   My perspective includes understanding your development and current lifestyle; hearing what you wish to change, and identifying how we can best approach the problems to create comforting solutions.  Together we explore your concerns and find ways to alleviate any pain or stress that exists.  I want you to know that I work with adult women and men who seek services.  Together we will explore how to change current behaviors in order to create a healthier way of coping and relating in your environment.

What I value.  I appreciate the affirmation of seeking change and establishing a new lifestyle that encompasses change suited to one's needs. I believe that you have the capacity for positive change, the promotion of lifestyle growth. You are deserving of this if you so desire.  My approach is non-judgmental and supportive.  No judgment; only encouragement.  

   My company, Come 2 Change Women's Support Center, promotes a focus on the wellbeing of women, yet we also provide genuine service to men who are the fathers, brothers, uncles and sons of women.  We believe in the significant being of every gender.  Decide to make a change; you are worthy of this!

My professional background.  I hold a Master's degree of Social Work from The Catholic University of America with a concentration in clinical therapeutic services. I have over 10 years of experience with adolescent and adult counseling and therapy and currently am the owner of Come 2 Change Women's Support Center, LLC.  I have specialized expertise in couple's counseling and skills training in personality challenges.  I believe in the practice of providing helpful strategies and techniques to clients to assist with a newfound awareness of one's current lifestyle and how the individual can implement change.  I honor and value one's hope and motivation for change.
