Announcement icon I see patients in person and via teletherapy. Please call 202-714-0000 to schedule appointments.
Therapy is a journey through which we find our authentic selves and become the best we can be. I have expertise in working with alcoholism, addictions, and recovery issues; and with relationship, couple and family issues. I have worked in the field for over twenty years. I work with adults and adolescents, in individual, couple and family modalities. My approach is to meet you where you are, and to help you to move towards your goals, overcome obstacles, and achieve maximum growth. I use several therapeutic approaches, including cognitive-behavioral, psychodynamic, and strengths-based techniques. Website: practicaltherapy.net.
I am a doctor of psychology, as well as a licensed independent clinical social worker. I have spoken at international and national conferences and also on television, film, and radio about mental health treatment, addictions, and relationship issues. Awarded "Best of Washington DC, Psychotherapy", 2013 and 2018 by the Washington DC Award Program.
I have served as a consultant for the U.S. Congress in substance abuse parity legislation. I am an addiction specialist, and affiliated with treatment programs throughout the country. My bestselling books, "FROM ADDICTION TO RECOVERY," "HOW TO HEAL EMOTIONAL TRAUMA", "LIVE & LOVE EACH DAY," and "HOW TO STAY TOGETHER", and more are available at Amazon.com.
