I am a Licensed Master Social Worker (LMSW), who brings their warm and playful personality into the professional setting in order to build an authentic relationship with clients. The majority of my experience has been in Baltimore City working with youth in foster care who have complex trauma histories and significant mental health diagnoses. I am particularly passionate about working with those who identify as LGBTQ+, struggle with chronic illness, and those in need of empowerment from mental health stigma, sexism, and racism. Although I let the client take the lead in our sessions, my clinical practice is heavily based in expressive arts (i.e. painting, drawing, photography, writing) as well as nature and mindfulness.
