Named one of the top therapists in the DC area by Washington Family Magazine. I specialize in working with people (age 14 +) who struggle with nervous thinking, low self esteem, and difficult peer & family relationships. Many of my clients are dealing with stress as well as cyclical "what if" thinking and negative self talk. In our sessions, you will learn how to control these thoughts, start implementing positive self talk, and take back your life. I also do a lot of work on self identity and helping people learn to value themselves regardless of whether they receive social validation from others.

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. Communication issues or infidelity are the two top areas that I work with. 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.

We, as human beings, have our habitual way to think, feel, and behave which may not always help us cope well. We may feel stuck in the past, fearful for the unknown future, and not being able to be present in the moment. We are not able to change the past and we cannot live in the future because future is delusional and non-existent. The present is the only time that we can do something to make a change and feel better. We do not need to deal with a struggle once we stop fighting against it and begin to practice acceptance and let go of the attachment to our habitual pattern so as to respond with a mindful and non-judgmental mind.

Ladies, are you emotionally exhausted? Past and current life challenges have overwhelmed you. Friends, coworkers and family are sometimes dismissive, leaving you feeling unheard and judged. You don’t express your feelings to avoid making others uncomfortable. You’re experiencing anxiety, low self-esteem and the impacts of stress; you question if you can hold it together and “be strong” as you're often told to do. With frustration mounting and your mental health on the back burner, you wonder if you can have it all. Does this sound familiar?
