Announcement icon Sessions available online and by phone. There is no need to feel isolated and alone in challenging times.
Do you have a secret? Do you seem calm and confident on the outside while on the inside you are anxious, worried and stressed? Do you feel lonely because no one really knows how you feel? Are you looking for a safe place and ally who can help you learn how to reduce stress and enjoy life more? My practice focuses on anxiety and stress. As a long standing practitioner of meditation, mindfulness, and mind-body techniques for therapy, I integrate talk therapy with mindfulness based stress reduction, EFT(tapping), thermal biofeedback, imagery, and hypnotherapy techniques to help clients find relief.
For over 25 years, I have helped people deal with anxiety and stress caused by trauma, loss, relationship challenges, life transitions, medical illness, and infertility. I am a former faculty member with The Center for MindBody Medicine in DC and the author of a book on mind body stress reduction for fertility.
If you are looking for help for stress, worry, and anxiety, reach out. We will craft an approach that works for you integrating talk therapy with somatic approaches.. Let’s form a team to help you find relief. I offer a free consultation if you would like to explore how we might work together. Please call me at (301) 852-6123
