My MA Degree is in Clinical Mental Health Pastoral Counseling from Marymount University, Arlington, VA; I am a National Certified Counselor (NCC); a Seminary trained Ordained Minister with a MA in Religious Studies (MARS) from Howard University School of Divinity, Washington, D.C. As a retired US State Department, GS-15, Manager, I have an understanding of workforce issues. I have experience in Clinical Pastoral Education (CPE) at Washington Hospital Center (Medstar). I have experience in helping clients with stress and anxiety, depression, relationship issues, coping with grief and loss, & motivation, self-esteem, and confidence. I work with couples to repair trust, improve communication, and strengthen their emotional intimacy with each other. I am a trained Prepare-Enrich Facilitator, the number one on-line Premarital and Marriage Assessment.
