Do you often feel overwhelmed by your emotions? Do upsetting, intrusive thoughts stop you from being fully present? Do you feel disconnected in your relationships? I can tell you that you're not alone, and you have it within you to build the life you want. I specialize in treating depression, anxiety, OCD, trauma, emotion dysregulation, and thoughts of suicide and self-harm. Together, we can get you unstuck and back in the driver's seat of your life. You and I are a team!
I'm trained in a number of research-supported treatments, and my approach is primarily rooted in Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT) and Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT). My style is warm, genuine, and frank. I emphasize open communication and often check in to make sure you feel like I'm "getting it" and that you're getting what you need from treatment.
If you think we could be a good fit, I welcome you to reach out. I offer free 15-minute phone consultations, so I can get a sense of what you're struggling with and you can get a sense of how I would approach our work together. Thanks for reading and I look forward to speaking with you! (Note: I am located in the MD-DC area but am licensed in both MD and NY)
