Do you keep asking yourself "When is this going to get better?" or "Why can't I figure this out?" or "Why does this keep happening?" Your past experiences might be causing you to be fearful or angry or defensive and negative feelings often get us stuck in unhelpful repetitive patterns. When those feelings and patterns are interrupting your productivity at work or are causing communication or connection problems with friends, family members, and romantic partners, it is time to get help.

Here services are designed to label problems and find solutions - as rapidly as possible; I'll suggest known methods and seek agreement. You'll choose what works best. And, with Free Consults for new DC and FL clients, you can decide before you even begin. The goal is to end therapy quickly! My experience is with adults, couples and families; my emphasis is outcomes looking at what works and what doesn't. My specialty is eclectic - using science and paradigms to effect change. Not everyone needs a therapist "just to talk." Counseling is about change. It's about you getting better, even if creatively realized.

Life can be painful and draining. Some days it feels like we're stuck or moving further away from our goals. Even during the most difficult times, we have the opportunity to learn and grow, if we feel supported. If you are struggling, feeling depressed, anxious, lonely, or just curious to learn more about yourself, I can help. I believe that all of us has the potential to thrive and feel fulfilled. Our relationship will be the main instrument in promoting growth and healing and our first step will be to build trust and understanding.

I work with a wide range of clients from a variety of cultural backgrounds in person and remotely. Clients learn to reduce stress and work with their feelings in ways that lead to personal growth and development of effective interpersonal skills. Feelings that cause stress, anxiety, depression, excessive self-criticism, perfectionism and emotional flooding are processed so that these problem feelings can lead to growth, greater empathy for self and others as well as greater kindness towards others in their life. Additionally, clients who employ detachment as a means of self-protection develop emotional awareness and intelligence.

Many of us are looking outside ourselves for love, fulfillment and joy only to find ourselves deeply dissatisfied, lonely and separated from connection and intimacy with others and ourselves. Life can be difficult and is filled with challenges and traumatic experiences that require our attention and care in order to heal. We are skilled at silencing the aching inside via escape hatches: excessive shopping, over/under eating, using drugs or alcohol, sex, gambling, gaming, etc. I believe the therapeutic relationship can offer support as we move into freedom by learning to live in the present moment with all life has to offer.
