I am a proud native Washingtonian with 21 years of experience serving DC area families. I received my Bachelor of Social Work (BSW) degree and Master of Social Work (MSW) from George Mason University. As a Licensed Independent Clinical Social Worker (LICSW) in Washington, DC, I have had experience in child welfare, LGBT family support & advocacy, international adoption, court programs, school settings, and integrative in-home parent counseling. In these positions, I have worked with diverse families on postpartum depression & anxiety, grief and loss, trauma, mood disorders, family conflict, behavioral and academic support for school-aged children and their parents, relaxation/stress reduction, media management, bullying (prevention and resolution), healthy relationships, and other parenting needs and concerns. Trauma, attachment, Postpartum Mood Disorders and neurodiversity have been primary focuses of my post-graduate training.
In 2014, I completed training as a Certified Gottman Bringing Baby Home Educator. I have completed training in Mindfulness, EFT, Perinatal Mood Disorders, Trauma, IFS, and more.
At home, I have had lots of hands-on parenting experience with my four active sons and a young daughter, and am a survivor myself of childhood trauma and anxiety and depression.
My family is multiracial and I am a supporter of racial justice and adamantly against white supremacy.
