As a dedicated Licensed Clinician Social Worker – Certified (LCSW-C) with a strong foundation in psychology and a passion for helping others, I bring over a decade of professional experience to my role at Serenity Place, LLC. My journey in the field of social work has been characterized by continuous growth, learning, and a commitment to providing compassionate care.
I earned my Bachelor of Arts Degree in Psychology from St. Mary’s College of Maryland in 2013, followed by the completion of my Master of Social Work Degree at Salisbury University in 2016. It was during this time that I became a Licensed Master Social Worker (LMSW) in the State of Maryland.
My professional career began with a focus on local child welfare and public assistance agencies, where I had the privilege of serving a diverse range of clients. From individuals facing mental health challenges to those in various stages of recovery from substance abuse, I gained invaluable experience working with clients from diverse socioeconomic backgrounds.
In 2020, I joined the Serenity Place, LLC team, where I have continued to expand my skill set. I am proud to hold certifications in Trauma-Focused Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (TF-CBT) and Parent-Child Interaction Therapy. My practice encompasses individual, couples, and family therapy, allowing me to work with a broad spectrum of clients.
My therapeutic approach is rooted in a client-centered philosophy. I strive to create a safe, non-judgmental environment where clients feel comfortable sharing their personal struggles and difficulties. Together, we embark on a collaborative journey, focusing on guiding and empowering clients to establish their goals and make impactful decisions and changes in their lives.
Each client is unique, and I firmly believe in tailoring treatment plans to their specific needs. Utilizing a variety of treatment modalities, I assist clients in developing coping strategies to overcome obstacles. The promotion of wellness, self-care, and effective stress management is paramount in my practice.
My ultimate goal is to support each client in becoming the best version of themselves, on their own terms. I find great fulfillment in this work and eagerly anticipate the opportunity to continue serving our community.
