Welcome to the website for my practice. I am a licensed clinical psychologist and my practice is located in Towson in Baltimore County, MD, ten minutes north of Baltimore City. I have been in private practice for the past 9 years and have been practicing in the Baltimore area for the past 12 years. Prior to opening my practice, I was an Attending Psychologist at Sheppard Pratt Hospital in Baltimore, in the Trauma Disorders Program. I transitioned into this position after completing my Postdoctoral Fellowship in the Trauma Disorder Program.
I earned my Masters and Doctoral degrees from the University of Denver. My specialty focus during graduate training was forensic psychology. In addition, I received in-depth training in both psychodynamic and cognitive-behavioral psychotherapies. I completed my clinical internship at Bellevue Hospital Center in New York, NY where I received specialized training in forensic psychology.
I have worked in a variety of settings that include inpatient psychiatric hospitals, counseling centers, public schools, residential treatment settings, and private practice. Since my licensure in Maryland, I have worked at Sheppard Pratt Hospital, Loyola University Clinical Centers, National Security Agency (NSA), Baltimore City Juvenile Courts, for private attorneys, and with the Maryland Office of the Public Defender.
The focus of my practice is providing therapy for adults, adolescents, and couples as well as conducting psychological and forensic evaluations. My specific areas of focus include posttraumatic stress disorder, relationship issues, self-esteem, depression, anxiety, anger management, gay/lesbian issues, and personality disorders.
