I view therapy as a process that can facilitate healing and change, as well as understanding and fulfillment. Whether stuck in a conflicted relationship, feeling lost, struggling with depression or anxiety, adjusting to a transition or life change, feeling unable to break unhealthy patterns or resolve past issues and pain, it can be difficult to know where to start. Together, we can explore the issues you face and identify the direction you want your life to take and the steps needed to get you there. Once established, our relationship can provide the foundation and safety for this process.

Please note that all sessions are via tele-medicine. I believe that clients seeking counseling services desire tools for living a better life, and I strive to provide those tools. I do not push change on clients, but rather helps them articulate how they want their lives to be, and then collaboratively set out to put the foundation in place to create that life. I feel that clients gain the most from the counseling experience when they feel supported, encouraged, and understood by their therapist. This process works best in a warm, empathetic, and non-judgmental space, which I provide.

Do you feel “stuck” in repeating patterns? Do you long for a change but can’t seem to make it happen? Or have you recently made a big transition and need help adjusting? Has trauma – either a one-time life event, or an ongoing stressful situation – stopped you from living fully? I help individuals and couples identify goals and the barriers to reaching them. With a collaborative and supportive approach you will find purpose, confidence, and belonging. My approach emphasizes self- determination and collaboration, drawing on evidence-based talk therapies and mind-body approaches like EMDR, mindfulness meditation, and yoga.

Since childhood, I've had a strong desire to help people. That desire grew to helping people identify what they need to create a fulfilling and enriching life through self discovery and acceptance. As a licensed therapist in Maryland and D.C., certified infant and early childhood mental health provider for over 10 years, I understand that in creating the life you want, sometimes, healing and restoration must take place. Helping people acknowledge and understand the integral parts of themselves through acceptance, self love and security in who they are is the focus of my practice and at the core of the work we will do together.

I work with individuals who feel their lives are hindered by unwanted or distressing feelings, or self-defeating patterns of behavior, and who experience depression, anxiety, anger, low self esteem, compulsive or impulsive behaviors, or relationship difficulties. By establishing more effective coping skills and responses, positive changes can develop and lead to a greater sense of fulfillment. I approach each individual treatment collaboratively, exploring the foundation of the problem, identifying problematic patterns, and then developing treatment goals tailored to the unique needs of each individual client.

I am a psychodynamic psychologist. As such, I believe that our early experiences shape our later expectations of ourselves and our relationships. I assist patients in examining patterns of thoughts, feelings and behaviors that may have begun early in life and continue to generate unhappiness with the goal of helping to relieve the depression and anxiety. As patients gain self-awareness and come to recognize and handle their feelings more adeptly, they often develop a more cohesive identity. While working to mitigate them, I am mindful of understanding what underlies the patient's vulnerability to developing these particular symptoms.

Coping Skills Therapists
With coping skills or coping mechanisms, we learn to overcome issues like stress, depression, anger or anxiety.

Pro-active coping involves dealing with a problem by using constructive coping activities such as planning, confrontation, self-control and restraint. Overuse of coping mechanisms, like avoiding problems or working obsessively, can exasperate the weakness.

Emotion based coping skills reduce symptoms by addressing our feelings e.g. discussing the issues, distraction, relaxation, reframing or humor can all help. But negative coping mechanisms, which tend to be impulsive, like denial, projection, rationalization, repression or wishful thinking can make the underlying problem worse.

Some coping methods are more like bad habits than constructive life skills e.g. drinking and drugs. Other examples might include skin biting, nail biting or hair pulling (trichotillomania).

If you find it hard to cope or are having trouble coping, therapists in Washington can help develop constructive coping skills for children, coping skills for kids and life coping skills.

If you're looking for help with coping skills in Washington or for a Washington coping skills therapist, these professionals provide coping strategies. They include Washington coping skills therapists, coping skills psychologists, coping skills psychotherapists and coping skills counseling.
