About Me

I am a trauma informed and inclusive therapist who has been in practice for more than ten years. I specialize in treating trauma, PTSD, anxiety, depression and relationship issues. I received my Master's of Social Work from University of Maryland, Baltimore. I am trained in EMDR, CBT as well as other highly effective therapy approaches. My style is warm, collaborative, and highly focused on supporting individuals to meet their goals. I bring my clinical experience, training and own journey to help you process your story, find balance and caring for yourself. As a bicultural and bilingual (English-Spanish) therapist, I am familiar with the complexities of growing and adjusting to a new culture, the challenges of raising multicultural children and going through transitional phases.

Education & Experience

I earned my Master of Social Work from the University of Maryland, Baltimore in 2013. I am licensed as LCSW & LCSW-C in Virginia and Maryland. My experience includes working with trauma victims (domestic violence, trafficking, sexual abuse, rape & sexual assault, torture, gang involvement, and grief & loss). I have practiced in various settings from county government, schools, community mental health and private practice.
