I am committed to helping individuals and couples gain insight and make behavioral changes to enhance their lives. My focus is on relationships with friends, family, romantic partners and/or the workplace as I believe engagement in these areas is an important aspect of living a satisfying and purposeful life. I also work with those struggling with addictions, compulsions, self-destructive behavior (especially eating disorders), and balancing the competing demands of life. My professional strengths are reflected in a nonjudgmental stance and an ability to help people examine themselves and make the changes necessary to live in a more fulfilling life.

Feeling stuck? Experiencing a lack of motivation? Are you struggling with pain from a chronic health issue or pain from daily life frustration? Are you always anxious, angry or depressed? Feel distant from your true self? Therapy can help you to break through the pain to be where you want to be. Warm, supportive, non-judgmental therapeutic exploration can help you to reconnect with or discover the person outside the pain, who is not just a medical diagnosis, an adult child of an alcoholic, a widow/widower, an angry/depressed/anxious person but the real you and your full potential.

These are anxious times for us all. Social distancing may be exacerbating struggles you were already experiencing or perhaps it is creating new stressors. If you were already feeling lonely and isolated you may be feeling even more so now. Struggles in your relationship that were easier to avoid with a busy life may now feel inescapable. Or, perhaps this time alone has given you time to think about changes you have been wanting to make in your life but now wonder if they are possible. The future suddenly feels uncertain. Whatever you are wrestling with, chances are these extraordinary times have made them even more challenging.

Having witnessed and participated in twenty years of clients' progress, I have great confidence in this powerful process. We all want to feel optimistic and enjoy our lives, with minimal stress, doubts, anxiety, depression, and confusion. Most of us have strong and centered parts that were buried or muted as a result of trauma, loss or other painful experiences. Learning to empower these healthy parts helps us manage inevitable difficult thoughts and feelings more calmly and effectively and to enjoy healthy relationships. Depending on individual situations, short term therapy or Skype sessions may be possible.

Parenting can be tough. The emotional drama, the power struggles, the bedtime or homework resistance, the clinginess. You love your child, you love being a parent, but parenting is draining. It stirs self-doubt and tests your patience. It requires humility and selflessness. In the darkest moments, you wonder if your mistakes are damaging your child. In short, it really is the toughest job most people will ever do. For children and adolescents, each stage of life comes with different challenges. Even children can feel lost, alone, scared, and anxious during these transitions. You want to help them, but how?

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 Bethesda 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 Bethesda or for a Bethesda coping skills therapist, these professionals provide coping strategies. They include Bethesda coping skills therapists, coping skills psychologists, coping skills psychotherapists and coping skills counseling.

How can I tell if a therapist is right for me?
Therapists in Bethesda are able to work with a wide range of issues. They offer in person sessions as well as Teletherapy in Bethesda
