I am a licensed clinical psychologist with over thirty years of experience helping individuals and couples to experience happier, more fulfilling lives. Clients describe me as both empathic and logical, and I am interactive in style compared to the more passive style of therapist. As an individual therapist I tailor my approach to your own strengths and style of learning, often combining elements of cognitive, humanistic, and insight and depth oriented approaches as indicated. Together we may address a broad range of issues including anxiety, depression, low self-worth, stress, grief, anger, and relationship or work problems.

As a marriage or couples therapist, I primarily utilize Imago Relationship Therapy, which is a powerful approach for transforming conflict or withdrawal in relationships into an experience that restores connection. This includes situations in which one of the partners has had an affair.

I have offices in both the Georgetown area of Washington, DC and in Great Falls, VA, making me convenient to clients from multiple locations in the Washington area.
