A Licensed Graduate Professional Counselor (LGPC), Hope supports her clients’ resiliency by leveraging positive coping skills, self-empowerment, enhanced curiosity, and compassion toward self and others. Hope received a Master of Science in Clinical Mental Health Counseling from Loyola University Maryland, a Master of Arts in Pastoral and Spiritual Care from Loyola, and a BA in Psychology with a concentration in humanistic, existential, and transpersonal psychology from Goucher College. She welcomes adult clients who hope to alleviate symptoms of trauma-related disorders, depression, anxiety, and/or life transitions (i.e., career changes, separation and divorce).
I look forward to collaborating with you to identify your goals for change and addressing the patterns and triggers that might stand in the way of your optimal wellness. Together, this will be a collaborative and active process intended to support you in taking steps toward realizing your goals and full potential.
I am trained in evidence-based approaches for treating individual and collective trauma, including Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) and The Center for Mind-Body Medicine's Mind-Body Skills Group (MBSG) model. In therapy, we might incorporate traditional approaches (i.e., Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) and psychodynamic theory), contemporary techniques (i.e., Internal Family Systems (IFS) and EMDR), and integrative and expressive practices (i.e., spiritually integrative counseling, nature informed therapy (currently in training), drawing, writing, and movement). I bring over 20 years of experience with mindfulness, self-care, and spiritually integrative approaches to wellness practices and am happy to support clients in integrating their unique selves and beliefs into therapy.
