I have been providing psychotherapy for over 30 years to individuals, couples, and groups.Throughout one's life, feelings such as depression and anxiety can create a sense of loss of control. Life events such as the death of a loved one, divorce, or interpersonal conflict can feel overwhelming. My clients would say that I treat every one according to their particular issues, with respect, and with great support and understanding. I also teach at George Washington University Medical School and I am on the National Council of the Brown School of Social Work at Washington University. I provide supervision, as well, to other psychotherapists.

I specialize in working with individuals who have been touched by adoption. Every adopted person has his/her own unique feelings about being adopted. For some, these may be "back burner" yet for others they may be more complex. I counsel adoptees - at various life stages - as they explore how adoption may affect their identity, feelings surrounding grief and loss, intimacy issues and relationships with family and friends. I have also worked with many adoptees (and birth parents) as they navigate the complexities of the search and reunion process and reconnection.

I am a clinical psychologist working with adults and adolescents in individual psychotherapy. Issues addressed in treatement are wide ranging. Some with which I commonly work include depression, anxiety, grief and loss and relationship problems. By training, I am a psychodynamic psychotherapist: I understand our thoughts and feelings as being governed by our environment, our relationships, and also by psychological dynamics that we have internalized as early as our childhood. These dynamics color and at times shape our relationships and experiences. Psychodynamic psychotherapy is a means to change these dynamics when they have led to maladaptive patterns.
