I specialize in grief and loss, as well as couples and family therapy. My education, training, and experience have provided me with the necessary tools to help guide individuals and couples through the grieving process, which is one of the most important steps in Dr. McBride’s recovery model.
Before entering private practice, I worked at the Women’s Center in Washington, DC, where I provided outpatient therapy to individuals and couples; served as the grief counselor for the inpatient unit at Community Hospice of Washington, and was the educational coordinator for adults at the DC Rape Crisis Center.
I am a Psychotherapist in private practice based in Washington, DC. Through my experience and training, I have developed specializations in grief and loss, trauma, and couples and family therapy.
Dedicated to developing successful relationships with the individuals and couples I work with, I provide a safe, supportive, and trustful environment that fosters personal growth. My therapy style is collaborative, warm, and interactive. I use a blend of therapeutic approaches with an emphasis on psychodynamic theory. The process begins by listening to and discussing your desire for healing and change.
As a distance credentialed therapist who is licensed in Washington, DC, Maryland, Virginia, and Florida, I provide teletherapy (phone and video) to clients in these locations.
