I bring over a decade clinical experience helping, healing, and caring for clients. Life's greatest battles are fought within the silent chambers of our own souls. You don't have to struggle in silence.
I am a Licensed Clinical Professional Counselor, National Certified and Board Approved Supervisor for the State of Maryland. I received both Master's and Bachelor's degree in Human Resources Agency Counseling and Psychology from North Carolina A&T State University. During my graduate counseling experience I have co-facilitated court ordered sex offenders and facilitated psycho-educational groups for family members. Upon completing my Master's Degree I relocated to Maryland providing psychiatric rehabilitation services and care coordination to at risk youth in Montgomery County. I led a clinical outpatient mental health facility, as a Clinical Manager and Approved Clinical Supervisor for License Graduate Professional Counselors, working with all ages from adults to adolescents with severe and persistent mental illness. I am integrative in my orientation and offer Cognitive Behavior Therapy approach to individuals with anxiety, depression, trauma grief/loss, couples and blended family issues. My passion for what I do has offered many of my clients the one thing they seek when we begin our journey together, new-found hope.
I'm committed to being there for you every step of your journey. My goal is to help you grow from your struggles, heal from your pain, and move forward to where you want to be in your life. I strive to alleviate psychological suffering in clients, promote a positive sense of self and self-esteem, and lessen the experience of anxiety and worry which can inhibit one’s enjoyment of life. I commit to help clients nurture and discover ways to enjoy and make the most of their lives, through encouragement to engage in healthy behaviors, positive affirmation of clients' sense of meaning and purpose in life. I will work to promote better functioning and satisfaction in clients’ work, personal interests, and in their relationships. In summary, my commitment is to promote the growth of each client and our hope is that each individual discovers well-being.
Life is not a destination, but a journey with peaks and valleys. Your mental health state ebbs and flows with how you navigate those peaks and valleys, which can sometimes prove to be extremely difficult. Bright Journey Counseling LLC provides empathetic, yet focused coping strategies to offer hope, positive thinking and realization that change is possible.
I am passionate about working with young adults and women that have developed unhealthy coping behaviors and interpersonal relationships related to past trauma experiences. I bring over a decade of clinical experience providing psychotherapy to children, teens and adults in various clinical settings including community-based, outpatient treatment center, private and group practice.
I strive to use an integrative approach with emphasis on cognitive behavioral therapy, deeply relational, trauma-informed and expressive practices to meet your individual needs. Together we will work to change generational narratives, break cycles of dysfunction, and utilize strategies to create space for new opportunities of healing and growth.
