I believe that my role as a therapist is to provide support for clients who have decided to enter therapy due to any number of concerns. Addressing life's many challenges can be a daunting experience. Finding the right "fit" with a therapist can prove central in attaining the most positive outcome in a therapeutic relationship. I strive to provide an environment rich in understanding and empathy while helping clients achieve personal goals and reduction of emotional symptoms such as anxiety and depression. My goal is to provide clients with a strong sense of self- awareness while building on individual strengths.

Did you know that 90% of the people who have had previous therapy do not remember what they learned? I have a sign in my office that says "What did you learn today?" I will work in partnership with you as a therapist and teacher. I work with women and men age 18+ who have depression, anxiety, trauma, self esteem or relationship issues. I will ask your goals for therapy. We will look at three major issues: (1) Both negative and positive patterns in your life; (2) the context of your environment and its impact on you; and (3) life's bumps in the road.

Helping teenagers decrease their anxiety, feel more adjusted about life, friends and family is another passion of mine.
It is easy to feel hopeless in the middle of a new fight. It reminds you of a hundred fights that you and your partner have engaged in. Don't despair. There is hope. I see couples who feel stuck due to fighting or disconnection. Within a few sessions, most of my couples feel closer and fight less. My clients have told me that they appreciate my gentle support, knowledge, and guidance. I use a mixture of two research-based approaches: The Gottman approach and Emotionally Focused Therapy. Both have been recognized as effective ways of treating couples.

I believe that therapy is most effective when provided in an authentic and nonjudgmental setting between two equals. Through my practice I have found that many issues can be alleviated or improved by making behavioral changes and sessions tend toward these present-oriented approaches, such as Cognitive and Behavioral Therapy (changing unhelpful thoughts and behaviors), Dialectical Behavior Therapy (helping to regulate out-of-control emotions), and Neurofeedback (also called EEG Biofeedback, this form of brain training is helpful for many issues including but not limited to anxiety, depression, attention problems).

The goal is to help individuals better understand the causes of their problems and identify patterns, develop better self-awareness and self-acceptance, form healthier relationships and improve the overall quality of their life. Understanding the impact of the past and making peace with it are important components of treatment as one's past can continue to hunt the present time and influence it in ways that are not always evident to us.

Anxiety Therapists
At the core of anxiety is a mistaken appraisal of danger in which threats are exaggerated, triggering an array of negative feelings that overwhelm patients and lead to avoidant behavior. Therapists take aim at the three big components of anxiety—worry, physical arousal or edginess, and avoidance—by teaching one or more well-researched programs of skills that are custom-tailored to patients’ own worst thoughts.

If you're looking for a North Bethesda anxiety therapist, these professionals provide anxiety therapy and counseling in North Bethesda.
