I am an integrative trauma therapist. In my practice I work with children and adults and provide parental guidance for neurodivergent families.
Prior to pursuing therapy training, I attended American University and completed a masters in Fine arts in Paining and worked as an artist and as well as an art teacher to neurodivergent middle and high school students. I have spent six years teaching children with extensive neurodivergent related symptoms as well as developmental and complex trauma.
My work as a teacher led me to the next natural step in my career – combining my artistic background and interest in trauma theory and practice.
I attended George Washington University Art Therapy graduate program (2017). I interned at Sheppard Pratt Hospital and Walter Reed National Medical Center working with military families. As a therapist I have conducted in-home therapy and have worked at the University of Maryland Medical Center Children’s Hospital.
These setting expanded my interest in working with individuals and families who suffer from developmental and complex trauma as well as working with neurodivergent families.
I established my private practice, Creative Insights Counseling Services, LLC in 2019. Currently I see clients online and in-person.
In 2021 I joined the Expressive Trauma Integration™ one year affiliation program and training.
