Welcome to the new school year!
I hope you are doing well as you make your way through the first week of school!
Over the course of the school year, you will receive newsletters from me every 1-2 months. The purpose of these newsletters is to provide you with counseling program updates, SEL resources, and information to help support your child's holistic growth and development.
Please make sure to complete the Consent form linked at the end of the newsletter if you haven't already. This is the same form some of you completed during the supply drop off. This must be completed whether or not you give your child permission to participate in counseling sessions, if the need arises.
I am a Nationally Certified Counselor & and Licensed Graduate Professional Counselor in the state of Maryland. I received my MS in Clinical Mental health Counseling from Johns Hopkins University and my BS in Psychology and Human Development from the University of Maryland College Park.
I have worked as a Psychotherapist in outpatient mental health centers and private practice, and have experience working with various organizations including MPB Group and Kennedy Krieger Institute. Along with being the counselor at TA, I also work as a therapist with Muslim clients of all ages at Jackson Wellness Group. I'm lucky to have gotten the chance to work with children, adolescents, and adults dealing with various mental health issues and life problems, and look forward to bringing my experience to help facilitate the holistic growth of our young scholars at TA.
I love spending time in nature, drinking chai, reading, and traveling. I am also an artist and incorporate mindfulness, creativity, and art therapy techniques into my counseling work.
