Therapy for teens and adults in Maryland

 My Story

Through my own experience of being diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis at the age of 30, I learned how to make my life work for me. Now, I’m here to help you do it, too!

My approach to therapy is understanding the connections between the mind and body, helping you to feel more aware as you manage your chronic illness symptoms. We use that information and develop practical solutions to help your life function with more ease and less stress. 

I look forward to meeting you!

Frequently Asked Questions

Learn How it Works!

I’M NERVOUS ABOUT STARTING THERAPY. IS THAT NORMAL?

Therapy can be vulnerable and new, so it’s natural to be nervous. It can be scary to think of opening up or crying in front of someone new, perhaps fearing that it will be awkward and uncomfortable. The fear around that can feel overwhelming. Getting the counseling we need can be challenging. And although it’s normal to be nervous, that doesn’t make it feel great. It takes courage to continue getting the help you need.

Therapy is a space where you can be yourself and feel safe from judgment, including feeling nervous. We’re committed to finding a way to care for your nervousness and ensure sessions are as comfortable as possible.

We’re here if you want to talk about it during a free phone consultation.

HOW DO I KNOW IF MY THERAPIST IS THE RIGHT ONE FOR ME?

Take your time to read through this website. If you sense that we may be a good fit based on what you are reading, you can call us.

During a free phone consultation, you can ask one of our therapists about how they have helped other people like you before, ask how they work as a therapist, or any other questions you may have that are specific-to-you. You’ll also be able to tell them what’s up, and you and one of our therapists can decide together how they can help.

It will usually take a couple of sessions to feel comfortable and develop a relationship. During the sessions, you’ll be able to understand how comfortable you feel in sessions. Our approach is not going to work for everyone. What’s most important is that you find someone who you feel is the right fit for you. We can explore that together.
