As a therapist, I integrate cognitive-behavioral and humanistic theories, which I find effective in building meaningful therapeutic relationships while simultaneously challenging and restructuring thoughts and modifying relevant behaviors. My personal and professional experiences living in different parts of the world have increased my sensitivity to the differences in how individuals from different cultural backgrounds experience mental health concerns and seek treatment. As such, I am passionate about making mental health resources accessible to a wide range of communities, and strive to provide culturally sensitive treatments.

Upon entering each new developmental phase of our lives, there is often a momentary pause, an unsettling of the ship as we adjust to new demands, challenges and desires (and this is true no matter our age). Perhaps the Terrible Twos, Tween or Teen years have hit? Could it be that your child is struggling at school and you'd like to support him or her to feel better and have more success? Maybe you are an adult who is feeling overwhelmed by stress and the demands of life. These moments are great opportunities for growth and I believe I can help.

Located in downtown Washington, DC, I specialize in queer topics and behavior modification. The clients I enjoy working with the most are children, teens, adults, and families with identities that are often seen as outside of the “typical”: gender-expansive, queer, blended families, and formerly religious. They are seeking a safe space to process challenges, practice acceptance, gain strength, and secure support, without having to explain their identity, family dynamic, or risk be criticized because of it.

“The good life is a process, not a state of being. It is a direction not a destination.” Do you find yourself wondering what you can do to feel better—less anxious, more confident, even happy? It seems like you’ve tried everything but nothing seems to work, at least not for very long. You may be able to support others yet you fall short on supporting yourself. You no longer feel like yourself and worry that it could get worse. Imagine what it would feel like not to constantly worry and to be confident in your ability to handle challenging situations. Therapy is a step in practicing self-awareness and self-care.

People often seek therapy when emotions become too distressing, relationship or life circumstances are unsatisfying, and support and new strategies are needed to help the person feel and behave differently. Working with a therapist can enhance your ability to tolerate difficult situations, and make the process of personal growth and change more productive. Therapy is most effective when a collaborative relationship develops between therapist and client. I aim to create an empathetic and supportive environment, where exploring difficult issues will feel safe. Together, we will identify what has created negative emotions or life dissatisfaction, and work actively towards positive change.

I believe this is because my stance is non-judgmental and I genuinely believe that all behavior is rational given past experience, even if it is not helpful or healthy in the present.

Cognitive Behavioral (CBT) Therapists
Cognitive-behavioral therapy stresses the role of thinking in how we feel and what we do. It is based on the belief that thoughts, rather than people or events, cause our negative feelings. The therapist assists the client in identifying, testing the reality of, and correcting dysfunctional beliefs underlying his or her thinking. The therapist then helps the client modify those thoughts and the behaviors that flow from them. CBT is a structured collaboration between therapist and client and often calls for homework assignments.

If you're looking for CBT therapy in Washington or for a Washington CBT therapist these professionals provide cognitive behavioral therapy, cbt group therapy, cbt therapy, cognitive behavior therapy, cognitive therapy and behavioral therapy.
