I am currently available to see DC residents via teletherapy. I am in the process of expanding, first to Maryland residents virtually, and then Virginia residents. My gentle approach is rooted in the understanding that our childhood experiences often impact how we show up in relationships with others and ourselves. I lead with compassion and offer a space where people can explore and tend to their internal world. As a result clients report feeling more comfortable being authentic in relationships and experience a sense of connection to themselves and to the world around them.
