I am a retired Virginia State Licensed Professional School Counselor who has worked in the Fairfax County Public School System as well as the D.C. Public School System. I completed my undergraduate work in Education from D.C. Teacher's College in Washington, D.C. and earned my Master's Degree in Guidance and Counseling from Trinity College in Washington, D.C. I completed the Post Master’s Program in Marriage and Family Therapy at Virginia Tech. I am a native of Georgia. I am married and have two adult children.
As a result of my counseling background, I bring a wealth of experience to the Gil Institute. I have worked extensively with at-risk children and adolescents experiencing socio-emotional, academic and relational challenges. I have facilitated parenting workshops and I continue to use psycho-education and parent coaching as integral parts of the treatment plan
I have been able to integrate my knowledge and skills while working in various clinical settings. In addition to providing group, family and individual therapy, I have had the opportunity to further support the Gil Institute by transitioning into the role of Intake Coordinator.
I enjoy learning and working with my gifted, extraordinary colleagues at the Gil Institute. I have the benefit of working with a special group of individuals who have also been inspired by the genius of Dr. Eliana Gil. We share the same vision, the same passion and share the same level of commitment to providing quality clinical services.
