Life is challenging no matter who we are. And there are times in our lives when we need extra support to get through the bumps and bruises life presents, whether suddenly or over a protracted period. I have been working with adults and seniors in the Washington DC area for over 40 years. I am experienced in working with individuals dealing with anxiety, depression, panic attacks and phobias, grief and loss, relationship issues and more. I also have extensive experience working with individuals with developmental delays.
Certified as a professional counselor, I am also a board certified dance/movement therapist. I thus have access to many verbal, wholistic and expressive tools to assist individuals in reaching their goals. A warm, empathic listener, I offer insights and opportunities to reframe one's situation to allow forward, positive movement.
I also use CognitiveBehavioralTherapy, guided meditation, expressive media - movement, art, role play - as appropriate to the person and their situation. And always, humor, I believe, is an essential ingredient in facilitating change. It would be a privilege to assist you in finding your way to a healthier and happier you.
