About Me

Warm Welcome,

 I am originally from England.  For the last 16 years I have lived in the US.  I have worked in out-patient mental health clinics and worked with many culturally diverse populations. I now maintain a general private practice in Frederick MD. My background includes training in psychodynamic psychotherapy, trauma work, EMDR, Emotioanlly Focused Couples Therapy.  I have been trained in EMDR since 2011.  I have found EMDR to be very helpful in the treatment of trauma and other psychological issues.  

My style as a therapist is to be non-judgemental, accepting of where you are in your life and empathic.  I will inject a hint of humor when needed.  It is important for me that my client's feel safe and experience the therapeutic experience as  warm and nurturing. 
 I work to provide insight, support, coping skills and techniques to help with lifes ups and downs so that you can grow and learn from your life experiences.

I integrate complementary methodologies and techniques to offer a highly personalized approach tailored to each client. I do not believe that "one size fits all" in counseling and strive to build on your individual strengths and help you maximize your potential for growth, HAPPINESS and fulfillment.

I became a therapist to help people become the person they want to be. If you are depressed, anxious, angry, or worried, I would like to help you with this.
