As a specialist in child and family therapy, I often work with family members, either separately or in the same session, to facilitate understanding, coping, and change.
Welcome. Looking for peace, calm, balance and tranquility? I use a collaborative, strength-based approach in my work with individuals, couples, and families. Clients come in to address difficulties such as depression, anxiety, and strained relationships. Parents often seek information and support regarding single parenting, parenting a child with ADHD, behavioral problems, learning difficulties, developmental delays, depression, and/or anxiety. Couples seek to improve their relationship or to cope with a difficult situation such as parenting in blended families and caring for elderly parents.

I have extensive experience working with challenging, difficult to treat, and treatment-reluctant children, adolescents and young adults but I enjoy working with all young people, regardless of their level of distress, to formulate, embrace and ultimately reach their treatment goals.
I embrace an eclectic and collaborative approach to therapy, where working with clients and their families to develop the necessary skills and strategies to overcome life's challenges is the primary goal! In therapy, I strive to create an environment where clients feel both heard and supported but also where they are encouraged to take an active role in the therapeutic process. In addition to working with clients both individually as well as in groups, I have experience working with children, adolescents and young adults in Intensive Outpatient (IOP) treatment programs as well as in a University Counseling Center setting.

At times, stress can threaten to overwhelm, priorities can become unclear and uncertainties can mount.

Child Therapists
Child psychologists in Bethesda, MD provide mental health therapy to children and are experts in child development.

Every comprehensive review of therapy with children shows that all credible approaches, when performed by a competent mental health clinician, produce almost the same results.
