I am a Licensed Professional Counselor in private practice based in the District of Columbia. I specialize in grief and loss. While pursuing my undergraduate degree at The George Washington University, I took a course on death and dying, and started volunteering at the local hospice. Several years later, in the last semester of my Masters in Counseling, I became the grief counselor at Community Hospice of Washington.

Since then, I earned my certification in Thanatology (the study of death education) through the Association for Death Education and Counseling. I am also a certified Compassionate Bereavement Care provider through the MISS Foundation. I work with people who struggle through normal grief reactions associated with the death of a loved one, as well as complicated and traumatic grief that may occur in situations of sudden death, suicide, homicide, and death of a child.

My work with clients experiencing loss comes in many forms. I work with people who have separated or divorced, have blended families, have relocated, have lost a job, have retired, have experienced trauma, or have received a diagnosis of illness for themselves or a loved one. Such life events and transitions can cause feelings of loss—of relationship, of family unit, of culture, of identity, of health—and can be addressed through therapy.

Before entering private practice, I worked at the Women’s Center in Washington, D.C., where I provided outpatient therapy to individuals and couples; served as the grief counselor for the inpatient unit at Community Hospice of Washington; facilitated therapy groups and conducted individual therapy at The George Washington University Hospital Psychiatric Unit; and, was the educational coordinator for adults at The Rape Crisis Center, where I organized Take Back the Night, a community event that raises awareness of and denounces sexual assault and domestic violence.
