I am a practicing clinical psychologist for over 40 years. My major focus is to help clients solve their " problems in living." My approach is developmental and research based. We pass through many transitions over the course of our lives that may present emotional and behavioral challenges at each stage of life. My treatment approach is eclectic i.e a tapestry of psychoanalytic, humanistic, behavioral and existential. Successful treatment outcomes often depend on a combination of approaches to resolve problems. Above all, I try to ensure that all therapy occurs in a positive, safe, supportive and confidential environment.

You will be offered a safe and respectful environment in which to share your unique experiences. Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) will help you change your thoughts, change your life! This is absolutely true, yet sometimes you might experience trying to think yourself into feeling better and it's simply not working. Your life looks complete, or almost, but you can't feel it. You are frustrated that your thoughts and feelings are not in agreement. At a thinking level, you know you didn't cause what happened, yet still feel like it's your fault and this keeps you stuck.

I believe that psychotherapy is a process in which an individual can grow and address difficult emotions and/or experiences in a safe environment. Individuals learn effective coping strategies and how to modify unhealthy ways of thinking for application in their every day lives. With a supportive therapeutic relationship healthy and productive lifelong changes can happen.

With everyday changing so rapidly and the increase in uncertainty, life presents us with new obstacles and challenges that we might not expect. It takes great strength and courage to ask for help when you need it. I believe in building a relationship based on collaboration, mutual respect and empathy. As a minority myself, I have experience helping clients work through processing cultural barriers and unfair treatment. I help clients with improving body image, increasing self-esteem, mood disorders, eating disorders and developing positive coping skills.

Are you stressed, anxious, or depressed even though life seems great to others? Do you sometimes feel like your thoughts are controlling you instead of the other way around? Have you tried every suggestion and self-help book you could and nothing makes a big difference or lasts? If so, you are not alone and working collaboratively with you, I can help. I work with clients to increase their well-being, achieve goals, and better manage life's challenges. I know you have the innate capacity to heal old wounds and manage new difficulties -and by working together, we can renew those skills and install new, fresh, and effective ones. Healing comes from within but sometimes is elusive. The therapist's job is to provide direction, an objective ear, and compassion on the road to experiencing more freedom and joy in your life. I specialize in treating individuals who feel overwhelmed by the high stress of living in these demanding times either due to past trauma or current life challenges. Either way, I am here to collaborate with your best self and bring that self front and center. I provide HIPPA compliant online therapy as well after an initial visit for those residing in VA/MD.
