Ha, it is time to enrich our mind and body simultaneously. I can assist you with achieving your mental health and personal fitness goals simultaneously. First of all, I am a Maryland Licensed Certified Social Worker - Clinical (LCSW-C) who is experienced in using person-centered and strength-focused therapy to assess, plan, implement, and evaluate individuals, families, or groups in diverse therapy environment. I am also a personal trainer experienced in using Strengths, Weaknesses, Opportunities and Threats (SWOT) analysis to assess, plan, implement and evaluate individual, family or group mental and physical fitness needs in different types of environments. I primarily draw on cognitive behavioral therapy, and mindfulness-based stress reduction techniques, but I can draw on other modalities based on the needs of my clients. I am skilled in crisis intervention, and using motivational interviews to assist clients in exploring their needs, habits, and intentions. I can assist individuals, families, and groups in meeting fitness goals. I am a Mind-Body fitness enthusiast with 9 years of mental health therapy experience, and over 5 years of personal training and health education experience. I employ these skills in providing person-centered and strength-based approach to assist you with achieving your mental health and fitness goals. As an advocate for personal and family mind-body fitness, I have great knowledge in current mental health and fitness trends and research.
