Practicing Since: 2006
Those who reach out for counseling typically are deeply wounded on emotional, spiritual, and/or physical levels. Selena believes that at the root of all our physical and emotional wounds lies a spiritual need. Because of this belief, Selena’s counseling approach is filtered through the Word of God and the person of Jesus Christ, so that she may rely on God’s wisdom and guidance. Selena’s capacity for empathy, extensive clinical training, and relational skills serve her clients well creating a safe and trusting environment in which to work towards healing.
Selena’s personal mission statement is best represented scripturally in Isaiah 61:1-4 where Isaiah speaks of anointing from the Lord, release from darkness for the prisoners through the “Good News,” and the restorative powers of God. By sharing biblical and spiritual truths, along with the application of clinical skills and practical tools, Selena looks forward to helping to facilitate an atmosphere through counseling to encounter the transformation that God so desires for our lives.
Selena received her BA in Psychology from Towson University and her MS in Clinical Community Counseling from Johns Hopkins University. She holds certificates for foundational biblical and spiritual development, has spent many years developing, teaching, mentoring, training, and providing discipleship for leaders of the church community. Selena is skilled in small group dynamics as well as one-on-one with individuals. In 2008, Selena became the Safe Harbor Christian Counseling Annapolis Director.
